Work hard and smart by using the 2017 Ford F-150
. This highly advanced truck was designed with an impressive number of cutting-edge technologies. For example, the high-strength, military-grade aluminum body
helps drop up to 700 pounds, boosting performance all around. Other clever designs add utility, luxury
and overall value to the vehicle.
You can get the F-150 in several cab and bed configurations, plus 7 different models: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Raptor, Platinum and Limited. Quite a few different options are available, making it easy to get a setup that's just right for your needs.
Power can come from one of several available engines. Even though it's the base option, the 3.5-litre V-6 offers potent performance with 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. You can upgrade to the 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6. Despite being smaller, direct injection and turbocharging allow this engine to squeeze out 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque. An auto start-stop system helps conserve fuel, and the maximum tow rating increases to 8,500 pounds. You can also haul up to 2,210 pounds in the bed.
For a more traditional setup, you can get the F-150 with a 5.0-litre V-8 engine, which is rated at 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. Efficiency and durability are included in the design of a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6. It's rated at an amazing 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
Going with the Raptor model means benefitting from a high-output version of the 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6. It's been tuned for extreme performance, topping out at 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. It includes automatic stop-start to reduce idling and boost fuel economy.
Of course, two-wheel drive is standard on the Ford F-150, but four-wheel drive can be added to any version of the truck. An electronic 6-speed automatic transmission is included on all models but those with the 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine, which is mated to a completely new 10-speed automatic.
The 2017 Ford F-150 is definitely designed to tow. Standard trailer sway control helps prevent dangerous situations, while a trailer brake controller is available for all models.
Raptor models have some exclusive equipment to make them especially good at venturing off the pavement. Hill descent control keeps the truck from going too fast on steep grades. The Terrain Management System automatically adjusts several performance characteristics to optimal levels for different types of surfaces, such as mud or snow. A long-travel suspension is well-suited for crawling over big obstacles.
Thanks to advanced technologies, the F-150 protects you in more ways than an average truck. For example, curve control automatically actuates individual brakes and even can cut engine output if you start entering a turn too quickly. The blind spot information center includes coverage when you're towing a trailer.
You'll love how the Ford F-150 is set up to help you work hard and smart. An available BoxLink interface system for the bed works with all kinds of accessories. Adding the 8-inch productivity screen puts useful information like fuel consumption and towing figures in an easy-to-read location.
