Prices above based on married female driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, claim-free, and safe-driver. Price information does not factor in vehicle garaging location which can raise or lower coverage rates considerably.

The diagram below illustrates how your choice of deductibles and can change Ford F-250 premium costs for different ages of insureds. The data is based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Difference between liability only and full coverage rates

The diagram below compares Ford F-250 auto insurance rates when comparing full coverage to liability only. The costs are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $100 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to switch to liability coverage only

There is no written rule to eliminate physical damage insurance, but there is a general convention. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is 10% or more of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's say your Ford F-250 settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company would pay you is $8,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are currently paying more than $800 annually for physical damage coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some cases where removing full coverage is not financially feasible. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not eliminate full coverage.

Why you need insurance for your vehicle

Despite the high insurance cost for a Ford F-250 in Chula Vista, insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.

First, just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means state laws require a specific minimum amount of liability insurance in order to drive the car. In California these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you bought your F-250 with a loan, most banks will have a requirement that you have physical damage coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you do not keep the policy in force, the bank may insure your Ford at an extremely high rate and force you to pay the higher premium.

Third, insurance preserves your Ford and your assets. Insurance will pay for medical bills for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, will also pay for a defense attorney if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance more than cancel out the cost, especially for larger claims. Today the average American driver is wasting up to $825 a year so compare rates every year to save money.

How Insurance Companies Calculate Ford F-250 Insurance Premiums

Lots of things are used when you quote your car insurance policy. Some of the criteria are obvious like your driving record, but other factors are more obscure like your vehicle usage and annual miles driven.

  • Proper usage rating affects costs - The higher the miles on your Ford annually the more you will pay for insurance. The majority of insurers calculate prices based on their usage. Autos not used for work or commuting get more affordable rates than cars that get driven a lot. Having the wrong rating on your F-250 is just wasting money. It's always a good idea to double check that your insurance declarations sheet reflects the correct usage for each vehicle.
  • Extra policy coverages can cost a lot - Insurance policies have a lot of extra coverages that can add up if you don't pay attention. Coverages for vanishing deductibles, better glass coverage, and Farm Bureau memberships could be just wasting money. You may think they are a good idea when talking to your agent, but now you might not need them so eliminate them to save money.
  • Five star crash test rating saves money - Vehicles with good safety scores are cheaper to insure. Highly rated vehicles reduce injuries and fewer injuries means less claims paid and lower rates for you. If your Ford F-250 earned at least an "acceptable" rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website it may cost less to insure.
  • Alarms and GPS tracking lowers insurance rates - Owning a car that has a built-in theft deterrent system can get you a discount on your insurance. Anti-theft devices such as OnStar found on GM vehicles, advanced tracking like LoJack, and vehicle immobilization systems all hinder vehicle theft.
  • Get cheaper rates if you're married - Being married may cut your premiums when buying insurance. It translates into being more mature than a single person and it's statistically proven that being married results in fewer claims.
  • Gender as a rate factor - The statistics show women are more cautious behind the wheel. The data does not necessarily mean that men are WORSE drivers than women. Males and females cause fender benders at about the same rate, but the male of the species cause more damage. In addition to higher claims, males also receive more costly citations like DWI (DUI) or reckless driving.

    The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Ford F-250 insurance costs for male and female drivers. Data assumes no tickets, no at-fault accidents, comp and collision included, $500 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied.

  • Be proud to be claim-free - If you are a frequent claim filer, you shouldn't be surprised to get either policy cancellation or increased premiums. Car insurance companies in California award most affordable rates to insureds who do not rely on their insurance for small claims. Your insurance policy is intended for the large, substantial claims.
  • Qualify for multi-policy discounts - Lots of insurance companies will award better rates to insureds that have more than one policy such as combining an auto and homeowners policy. Discounts can amount to as much as ten percent or more Even with this discount applied, it's in your best interest to compare other company rates to make sure you are getting the best deal.
  • Insurance loss probability for a Ford F-250 - Insurance companies take into consideration insurance loss statistics for every vehicle when setting premium rates. Models that the data shows to have higher claim amounts or frequency will cost more to insure.

    The data below shows the historical loss data for Ford F-250 vehicles. For each insurance policy coverage type, the claim amount for all vehicles, regardless of make, model or trim level, is a value of 100. Numbers that are below 100 imply a favorable loss record, while values over 100 indicate higher probability of having a loss or tendency to have higher losses.
