There’s a lot to like about the 2017 Ford F-150 XL, beginning with its multiple configuration options. You can choose between the regular, extended, and crew cabins for the passenger space that suits your needs. Both the extended and crew cabins provide roomy backseat space for your favorite passengers. Next, you can choose a bed size that supports your daily hauling requirements. With the regular and extended SuperCab, you can choose between the 6.5- or 8-foot bed. The SuperCrew is available with the 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed.

Select the powertrain that meets your towing and hauling needs. Choose from four rugged engines for the output that gets the job done. We like the 5.0-liter V8 engine, which generates 385 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque for a smooth, swift performance. Use this engine to tow up to 11,100 pounds. If you need still more power, upgrade to the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. For 2017, the F-150 has retooled its most formidable engine to deliver 375 horses and 470 pound-feet of torque. It tows max loads of 12,200 pounds without even breaking a sweat.

The 2017 Ford F-150 XL is known for its generous safety features and excellent crash-test scores. In government crash tests, it earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Ford F-150 its top score of “Good.” Thanks to the F-150’s antilock brakes, you’ll enjoy the benefit of quick, short stops. Use the rearview camera to spot any obstacles in your path. The automatic crash notification feature uses your smartphone to dial 911 after the airbags deploy.
