2015 F-150Ford has announced pricing on its groundbreaking new aluminum F-150 truck, due to reach dealers later this year. Though cheaper models will see only a modest increase in price over current, non-aluminum models, the price of Ford’s high-end editions will jump by more than $3,000.

The new 2015 F-150 XL will start at $26,615, while the XLT will start at $31,890. That’s a gain of $400 for each version, which together make up about 70% of all F-150 sales. At the high end of the F-150 lineup are the King Ranch and Platinum models. The 2015 King Ranch edition is up $3,615 to $49,460. The 2015 Platinum model will start at $52,155, an increase of $3,055.

That should help Ford reap even more profits from its top-selling line. The F-150 has been the bestselling vehicle in the U.S. for 32 consecutive years. In 2013, Ford sold 763,402 F-Series trucks. All prices include destination.

Ford also announced the pricing of its optional EcoBoost turbocharged V-6 engines. The new 2.7-liter V-6 will add $495 to the sticker price, while the 3.5-liter V-6 will cost $1,995.

In an effort to reduce the F-150’s weight and boost its efficiency, Ford took the bold step of building all the body panels on the 2015 model from aluminum rather than steel. This drops the weight of the new F-150 by more than 700 pounds below the outgoing 2014 model.
