How much does a Ford cost to insure?
Without a doubt it’s worth taking a look at how Ford car insurance prices vary. So, we’ve put together a snapshot of some of the more popular models with a rough guide on what you might expect to pay.
Whichever model takes your fancy, it’s worth remembering that your circumstances play an important part in your car insurance costs. This includes your age and driving experience, your profession and your claims history.
One of the most popular Fords on the market is the Fiesta. And of the different styles of Fiesta, the Zetec emerges as one of the most sought after.
The Fiesta Zetec could cost you around £845* to insure and sits in insurance group 5. This hatchback first came on the scene in 2017 and has proved to be a popular choice ever since.
If you’re after something with a bit more of a family feel, the Ford Focus is an ever-popular all-rounder. Again, the Zetec version of the Focus seems to be the trim of choice. These on average cost £907* to insure.
At the upper end of the scale is the Ford Mustang GT which, with an average premium of £2,079*, sits in insurance group 43. This could be due in part to its famous name and scarcity in the UK. According to Parkers, The Mustang GT tends to sell for up to £59,000, so it might be considered a dream car for some.

The history of Ford
The Ford Motor Company was formed by the eponymous Henry Ford in 1903. The Ford Model A was the first car to be sold, but it was the far more famous Ford Model T that really got things moving.
Introduced in 1908, the Model T became the first vehicle to roll off an assembly line when Henry Ford invested this groundbreaking concept in 1913.
In time, Ford reduced the period it took to fit the chassis from 12.5 hours to 1.5 hours, making the car much cheaper to make, and more affordable to buy. By 1927, when production of the Model T stopped, more than 15 million had been sold worldwide.
Since the 1920s Ford has been in the business of buying up rival companies. This approach started with Lincoln in 1922 and more recently has included both Jaguar and Aston Martin – both were subsequently sold in the 1990s.
Over the years Ford branched out, making everything from boats and lorries to incubators. But it was iconic models such as the Ford Mustang in the US and the Ford Cortina in the UK that carried it through the modern age.
Most recently the company has experienced difficult times, highlighted by the fact that it sold fewer cars in 2020 than in 2019, and announced it was paring back car production in the US. With the Ford Focus and other models, it remains a force in the UK .
