Data rating is based on single male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $1,000 deductibles, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, claim-free, homeowner, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in specific Sacramento, CA garaging location which can change rates noticeably.
By looking at the data, we can presume that cars like the Toyota Prius, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Honda Accord, and Chevrolet Impala are some of the cheapest vehicles to insure for a F-150 pickup.
Liability only or full coverage
Reducing the cost of car insurance is the goal of most people, and one good way to find cheaper insurance for a Ford F-150 is to only buy liability coverage. The chart below compares insurance prices with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The data assumes no claims or violations, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied.
If we average the cost for ages 20 through 70, physical damage coverage costs an additional $2,003 per year more than just buying liability insurance. Many of you may wonder when is the right time to remove full coverage. There is no written rule for eliminating comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it might be time to buy liability only.
For example, let's pretend your vehicle's replacement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying over $600 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.
There are some circumstances where removing full coverage is not in your best interest. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to keep full coverage to satisfy the loan requirements. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.
The information below highlights how deductible choice can influence yearly insurance costs when trying to find cheap insurance for a Ford F-150. The data is based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, and no other discounts are factored in.
In the chart above, a 40-year-old driver could cut expenses by $416 a year by switching the physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $626 by changing to a $1,000 deductible. Even younger drivers, like the 20-year-old, can cut $1,398 or even more by choosing larger deductibles on their policy. If you do decide to increase your deductibles, it is important to have additional funds squirreled away to allow you to cover the extra out-of-pocket expense. That is the one drawback of using higher deductibles.

The second shows the rates with multiple policy, safe-driver, multiple vehicle, defensive driving course, homeowner, and claim-free discounts applied.
