Finding affordable auto insurance for a Ford F-150 in New Jersey doesn't take a lot of effort, but it is dependent upon a lot of rating criteria such as whether you are married or single, the performance level of your vehicle, and any prior driving citations you have received. Drivers in New Jersey will pay on average $1,096 per year to insure their F-150, but that figure is an estimation calculated using a 50-year-old married male driver with full physical damage coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
There's a good chance you aren't exactly 50 years old or even a male, possibly single instead of married, or maybe you have a speeding ticket or two that will increase rates. Having just a slight change in the rating criteria used to formulate rates could result in a significant change in the coverage rate.
This example demonstrates why the best way to find the cheapest insurance price for your Ford is to compare rates from as many companies as possible. In just a couple of minutes you can get rates from top-rated companies in New Jersey.
The trim level of your F-150 tends to have a direct effect on the annual cost of coverage, so the price to insure a F-150 XL Regular Cab 2WD model will be $248 cheaper than the cost to insure the more expensive F-150 Lariat Crew Cab Platinum 4WD version, as shown by the rates below.

Are you paying too much for car insurance?
