The 2017 Ford F-150 was made to impress, and that’s exactly what it’s doing. Take a look at some of the reviews this new model is getting, and then head to Terry’s Ford to make one yours.
Car and Driver Loves the Performance
The 2017 Ford F-150 comes with a 3.5L EcoBoost® engine that delivers 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. What makes this model so impressive is the 10-speed automatic transmission that allows it to flow through the Peotone roads with ease. Car and Driver is excited about this new performance, stating:
“The legendary F-150—now with an aluminum bed and body—remains the hard-working pickup it’s always been. The base 3.5-liter V-6 makes 253 lb-ft; a 2.7-liter turbo V-6 (375 lb-ft) and 5.0-liter V-8 (387 lb-ft) are available, too, but the optional 3.5-liter turbo V-6 (420 lb-ft) is best for towing, boasting a maximum capacity of 12,200 pounds. All engines have a six-speed automatic. Regular cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew bodies as well as 5.5-, 6.5-, or 8-ft beds make the F-150 fit many needs.”
Motor Trend Enjoys the New Performance Features
The F-150 features a variety of new features to make it stand out on the Bradley roads. For instance, it offers a class-exclusive cab and box fabricated from high-strength military-grade aluminum alloys. In addition, it also boasts other upgraded features that Motor Trend noticed:
“The second-gen engine has the same displacement and bore centers, so it can be built on the same assembly line. Beyond that, every component is new, and the engine now has both direct- and port-injection (two injectors per cylinder), new turbochargers with a lighter turbine wheel, and standard auto start-stop technology that restarts the truck quickly and almost seamlessly when you hit the gas pedal.”
Edmunds is Excited for the Towing and Payload
When you choose the heavy-duty engine on the new F-150, you’ll also enjoy 12,200 pounds of towing capacity, which means you can handle any tough job that’s thrown your way. Edmunds is thrilled about it, stating:
“You won’t have any trouble finding a capable pickup that meets your needs in the diverse 2017 Ford F-150 lineup. The F-150 boasts impressive tow and payload ratings and some of the best fuel economy in the light-duty segment. To top it all off, the off-road-ready Raptor model is back and ready to fly over any terrain you put in front of it.”
