2017 Ford F-150 Review

Working hard doesn't mean not being efficient, thanks to the 2017 Ford F-150. This is a truly modern truck that addresses all of your needs, and many of your wants. Everything from the structure to the available powertrains is designed to conserve fuel, while still boosting capability to a high level. Clever technologies monitor for safety, keep the driver informed of important items and even provide diverse entertainment options. This is a truck you'll look forward to driving each day.

For 2017, the F-150 comes in 7 exciting models called XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Raptor, Platinum and Limited. Depending on the one you select, Ford offers different cab and bed configurations.

Performance

More freedom comes with the availability of 5 diverse engines, making it possible for you to find the right one to match your goals. The base option, a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V-6, puts out an impressive 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque.

If you're looking for greater efficiency, a 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 is a solid choice. Even though it conserves fuel, the combination of turbocharging and direct inject means it pushes out a peak 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque. Still providing good efficiency and even more performance, a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6 is rated at 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.

For a more traditional option, select the 5.0-litre V-8, which is naturally aspirated. It delivers big with 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque.

The most extreme of the bunch is a High-Output 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6. It comes exclusively in the F-150 Raptor, and provides 450 horsepower, plus an amazing 510 lb.-ft. of torque.

Towing

Tow with greater confidence, thanks to advanced technologies available for the F-150. With the Pro Trailer Backup Assist, novices and pros alike enjoy a more simplified process for turning the wheels, so you can guide the truck and trailer with ease.

Dynamic Hitch Assist uses a camera to help you line up the hitch receiver and a trailer. This means you can make a connection without the aid of a second person. The trailer and truck brakes are synchronized through the trailer brake controller, while a Smart Trailer Tow Connector warns of connectivity or other problems.

In addition, the F-150 can handle loads up to 3,270 lbs. (1,483 kg). That's a best-in-class payload rating, so you can tackle big jobs without any issues.

Advanced Technologies

Pushing the envelope even further are several available technologies. Numerous driver assistance systems are available, using cameras and other sensors to detect dangers. For example, the blind spot information system with cross traffic alert, warns if another car is approaching from the side while you're backing out.

By adding Sync, you can place phone calls, select music and even access apps with ease. The touchscreen menus are simple, while voice controls provide a hands-free way to use the system. Upgrading to Sync 3 adds more advanced hardware and software, faster processing speeds, Siri integration, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and more.
