There’s no full-size pickup truck quite like the 2017 Ford F-150. For starters, it’s the safest truck on the road. In government crash tests, it earned a perfect five star rating for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2017 F-150 its top score of “Good” in all crash tests. The brand new F-150 is also stocked with a wide range of tech gear designed to help keep you safe. Driver aids, like the blind-spot monitoring system, actively scan your surroundings to help you avoid danger. If it detects an impending collision, the forward-collision warning system automatically pre-charges the brakes for maximum responsiveness. Ford’s unique MyKey technology gives parents the power to set speed and stereo volume limitations for teenage drivers.

Of course, power is among the 2017 Ford F-150’s main attractions. Choose from a number of powertrain options, including a brand new 10-speed automatic transmission that’s designed to move heavy loads with ease. This transmission is paired with the F-150’s beefiest engine, the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. This year, Ford has retooled this engine, increasing output to 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. With it, the F-150 can tow max loads of 12,200 pounds. Shoppers can also opt for traditional V8 power. The F-150’s 5.0-liter V8 engine generates 385 horses, 387 pound-feet of torque, and a solid performance. Use it to tow up to 11,100 pounds.

On the road, the Ford F-150 feels incredibly light and maneuverable. Its new aluminum-alloy body panels reduce overall weight, so you can tow and haul impressive loads and save money on fuel. The F-150’s steel frame balances the equation, keeping you safe on the go. The Pro Trailer Backup Assist system helps you back a trailer into your driveway, taking the guesswork out of the process. The surround-view camera system provides a bird’s-eye-view of the F-150, so it’s always easy to back your truck into parallel parking spaces.

Inside, the F-150 cabin offers luxurious accommodations for all. It doesn’t matter which cabin style you choose – regular, SuperCab, or SuperCrew – all offer generous head- and legroom. Upscale features, like seat ventilation, wood trim, and leather upholstery, give you the VIP treatment. Modern tech features keep you connected on the go. The central Sync 3 system provides generous smartphone integration options, so you can send hands-free texts or stream your favorite podcasts from devices. Sync voice controls let you interact with the system without looking away from traffic.
