2017 Ford F-150

Pros: Surprisingly powerful EcoBoost V6 engines, broad array of body/trim configurations, good selection of technology features, excellent fuel economy for the class

Cons: Higher repair costs of aluminum body, so-so control layout, ride quality not quite best in class, some visibility issues

CG Says: The off-road/performance-oriented Raptor returns to the Ford F-150 line for 2017. The new Raptor replaces its V8 with a high-output, 450-horsepower version of Ford’s turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 linked to a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Available in other F-150 models is a redesigned turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost that develops 375 horsepower and is also mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission. The F-150 offers regular-, extended-, and crew-cab body configurations among XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim levels. Engine options include the previously mentioned 3.5-liter EcocBoost, along with a turbocharged 325-hp 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, and a 385-hp 5.0-liter V8. The base engine is a 282-hp 3.5-liter V6. The lightweight body structure, high-tech available features, and impressive powertrain lineup help the F-150 feel like a truly cutting-edge pickup inside and out.
