Ford's most capable pickup trucks are about to get a lot more expensive. According to a bulletin sent to dealers, all F-Series Super Duty models are set to receive a $1,295 price increase later this week. The move comes amid a flurry of upcoming price hikes and destination charge increases from the American automaker.

Starting Wednesday, all 2022 F-Series Super Duty trucks will get a $1,295 increase in base MSRP. In the case of the F-450, this appears set to raise the price of a well-equipped truck well past $95,000. With every possible option, this is already a truck that can almost reach the $100,000 mark when fully loaded.

While the standard F-150 remains unaffected, this marks one of the largest of a series of mid-year price increases due to take effect on Wednesday. As we reported previously, the Mustang Mach-E will see up to a $3,000 price hike, while destination charges are set to increase slightly on both the EcoSport and Edge.

Even though mid-year price increases aren't uncommon, we consider the increases on the Super Duty series to be unusually high. Having said that, given the fact that consumers are already paying higher prices due to an inventory shortage, a $1,295 price hike may not seem like all that big of a deal by comparison.

Still, pricier trucks can result in higher financing costs. On an $80,000 vehicle, a 6-year loan at 5% APR would translate to just over $12,700 in interest. Given the lack of aggressive truck deals, consumers who need the capability of a Super Duty model may have no choice but to pay a premium during this time.
