Ford F150 Windshield Replacement Cost

Many people say the Ford F150 is the real king of pickup trucks. It is true that Americans love their big trucks, as the Ford F150 has been their top-selling truck for 45 consecutive years!  As a matter of fact, it holds a 3.7% market share of all the vehicles in the country. Many are fond of off-roading, and the Ford F150 is just the right choice for your off-roading adventures. 

The harsh condition of roads during off-roading can easily damage the windshield of your Ford F150. A chip or scratch or, even worse, a crack can occur in the glass if a big enough pebble hits your windshield. Basically, off-roading makes your windshield more vulnerable. 

Not just off-roading, your windshield may get damaged even from normal driving, especially when your windshield life expectancy reaches its limits. If you don’t know much about windshield replacement, especially if it’s the first time you have to deal with this, I am here to help. I actually called various auto shops located all over the US to ask about specific prices. 

The goal is to give Ford F150 drivers an idea of how much money they have to prepare when faced with replacing a damaged windshield. You will also learn about the various other factors that might affect the price, such as model and location. Let’s dive into it!

Replacement Cost – Factors

Car maintenance costs generally depend on different aspects, mainly the model year and, of course, your insurance coverage. Similarly, your Ford F150 windshield replacement cost will depend on your truck’s production year, your insurance coverage, your location, and many other things. Compared to other vehicles, the windshield replacement cost of the F150 falls under the medium price range. Here are some principal factors that may affect your truck’s windshield replacement cost. If you want to go into more detail about, check out my other article on windshield replacement price factors.

  • Production year: The model year will always going to affect windshield replacement prices. Generally speaking, there’s a gradual decrease in costs for older models.
  • Location: Where you live, and the vehicle repair service demands of your area will be reflected in the windshield replacement price.
  • Auto Shop: Windshield replacement costs will vary depending on whether you choose to go to an independent auto repair shop or a chain shop.
  • Insurance Coverage: Not all types of coverage include windshield replacements. You should, first, understand your car’s windshield insurance, and then you may determine the cost of your replacement.
  • OEM or Aftermarket Windshield: If you opt for an OEM windshield replacement, your F150 will get the original windshield installed, but this, in turn, will increase the replacement cost. Aftermarket windshields are also an available option with lower prices and, often, lesser quality than an OEM.

Ford F150 Windshield Replacement Cost

According to my research, the average price of Ford F150 windshield replacement across the USA is around $500. That makes it fall under the low to medium price range, mostly due to the truck’s availability. 

Northern and southern states require the most money for a F150 windshield replacement, and the price gradually decreases in eastern and midwestern states. I can assume that this high price in the northern states may be due to the weather variation that requires more windshield protection.

Despite the price difference, I provided some windshield replacement costs for the F150 in four different states in the U.S., including maximum, minimum, and average prices. 

2018 – 2019 Ford F150

There is not too much variation in price for windshield replacement after the 2015 F150 model as Ford maintained their aluminum exterior. Again, it’s going to be around $600 if you have to replace the windshield of your 2018 and 2019 Ford F150. You can still observe a subtle difference in prices in different states. Bear in mind that this model year has the least reported issues. So, it is one of the best properly maintained F150 trucks.

2016 Ford F150

Onwards from 2015, Ford started producing their F150 with an aluminum body. With new exterior material, the F150 became more durable and also increased its performance. Thus, we can see a noticeable difference in the windshield replacement cost for the 2016 production year. On average, it will cost you around $600 to replace the windshield of your 2016 Ford F150. While Minnesota has the highest cost of $934.50, you can replace your windshield for half the price at around $480 in Kansas at Binswanger Glass Autoshop.

2014 Ford F150

For the 2014 F150, if you don’t consider the southern states, the windshield replacement price is the same as the 2013 model year. But in Texas, there was a massive jump in price between the 2013 and 2014 model. The windshield replacement cost almost doubled! In all other regions, the average price is around $500 or lower. The minimum cost can be encountered in Delaware at around $400.

2007 – 2008 Ford F150

In the 2007 and 2008 production years, Ford started putting more into luxury than performance. Despite that, the maintenance cost of the 2007 – 2008 production years are much less compared to newer models. The windshield replacement cost still follows the trend of higher prices in northern and southern states and cheaper in eastern and mid-western states. There is less variation in prices due to location, as the maximum and minimum price difference is around $300.

2003 and 2004, F150 was famous for its powerful engine and towing power. Although it has a poor MPG, it is still coveted for its work and off-roading capability. The price of the windshield replacement of older F150 trucks generally remains the same with just a little distinction in a few states.

1997 Ford F150

The 1997 model year was the start of the tenth generation F-series trucks when Ford started introducing more interior and exterior safety features for their trucks. Despite being 10 years older than the 2007 models, there is not much decrease in the windshield replacement cost. In some states, the price may even be a little bit higher. This may be due to the 1997 model being an older model year, and the availability of windshield replacements might be harder to find.

Depending on the production year of your Ford F150, and the location, you may need to spend a little more money.
