The Ford F-Series is a mainstay in the pickup truck segment, boasting four decades of grueling strength, power, and durability. For 2017, the Ford F-150 returns with a lighter frame and best-in-class capabilities, delivering plenty of muscle to help you get the job done.

The Ford F-150 isn't afraid to roll up its sleeves, and Nye Ford takes a closer look at its capabilities, key features, and design in the following post. Before test driving a 2017 Ford F-150 near Oneida, Rome, or Utica, check out Nye Ford's review below.

2017 Ford F-150 Overview

2017 Ford F150The 2017 Ford F-150 is poised to lead the segment with a class-exclusive cab and box constructed with high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy. It also comes with a fully boxed frame with eight crossmembers fabricated with up to 78% high-strength steel.

With these materials, the 2017 Ford F-150 weighs up to 700 pounds lighter than its previous generation, improving fuel efficiency, towing, and its power-to-weight ratio.

This also enhances the F-150's handling and brake responsiveness, providing unparalleled control when hauling or towing heavy loads.  

All-New 2017 Ford F-150 Powertrain

One of the most exciting features available with the 2017 Ford F-150 is its all-new second generation twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine.

Although its centers and cylinder dimensions are like the F-150's outgoing 3.5L engine, the second-generation V6 sees its torque increase by 50 lb-ft to a class-leading 470 lb-ft. There's also a jump in horsepower by 10 to 375.

The 2017 Ford F-150's available 3.5L V6 is paired with the all-new class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. Engineered for better acceleration and performance, the F-150's available 10-speed is the first volume production of its kind that any automaker is offering to car shoppers.

2017 Ford F-150 ReviewThe 2017 Ford F-150 delivers a powerful, potent performance engineered to work hard so you can work smart. Thanks to its lean frame and strong powertrains, the 2017 F-150 sees improvements in its towing and payload capabilities.

  • Best-In-Class Payload
    The 2017 Ford F-150 offers a best-in-class payload rating of up to 3,270 pounds when properly equipped, providing plenty of muscle for hauling tractors, dirt bikes, camping supplies, and more.
  • 2017 Ford F-150 Towing
    Whether you're hauling a boat, camper, or tractor, the 2017 Ford F-150 delivers plenty of strength with a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,200 pounds. 
  • Supercharged Horsepower
    The Ford F-150 resurrects its off-road ready Raptor model for 2017, which gets its power from an all-new, twin-turbo, 24-valve high output 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 with direct fuel injection. Generating a mammoth 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, the Raptor's high-output EcoBoost® makes more power than the F-150's previous 6.2L V8.
