The King Ranch is a luxurious offering in the F-series lineup. While the King Ranch might feel like it’s out of your price range, buying a used one just a few years old can quickly bring this trim level in the affordable bracket. Specifically, the 2017 King Ranch has features that are convenient in both the recreational and professional fields. And 2017 is a great year with very few consumer complaints. There were a few unfortunate recalls, including some having to do with fire safety, but buying used from a licensed Ford dealers means recall repairs have already been made.
Ford decked out both the exterior and the interior of the 2017 King Ranch for both aesthetic appeal and functionality. The King Ranch is aptly named, as anyone who takes the time to experience this vehicle will see the time and effort Ford spent making this truck a cut above the rest.
2017 Ford F-150 King Ranch
On the outside, the King Ranch displays the perfect fusion of the beauty of the wild with the tamed hand of man’s ingenuity. With Ford’s classic logo grill as the introductory marker, this truck screams the epitome of Ford’s genius. Featuring a unique remote tailgate control for ease-of-access, bright LED lights to illuminate the truck bed at night, an optional yet handy retractable step to make climbing in and out even easier, and an intelligent push-button start, the 2017 model is undoubtedly greater than the 2016. And as an added protection, this model comes with an automatic tailgate lock to prevent theft.
Colors range anywhere from Caribou for the outdoorsy to Ruby Red for the bold-minded. Venturing to the interior we see one of the most spacious cabins of any F-150 or of any truck in general. The back-leather seats are embossed with the typifying King Ranch Logo and this is featured on other appropriate locations around the cabin. Along with the feel of natural leather comes the earthy accent of mahogany wood.
The steering wheel is large for easy-steering (and heated I might add), and Ford has placed countless features to make life easier. In the SuperCrew models, the back seats are foldable for a fully flat load floor, adding even more room to a spacious interior and allowing for storage space that is dry and protected from the elements. A large touch screen is the central point of the interior that helps one navigate the many features from Sirius radio to GPS capability and an 8-inch productivity screen next to tachometers and gauges is also available. With the new “MyView” feature, drivers can customize what information they want displayed.
F-150 King Ranch Comfort
Everything from fuel economy to towing data can be seen at a glance. There are multiple garage inputs that one can customize and it even features a sliding back window to allow extra air-flow and light into the cabin. Lastly, for those long trips, or even for daily use, there is a 110 V power inverter and plug built into all models of the King Ranch. This is easily one of the most comfortable interiors of any vehicle for the price, and it’s pretty easy on the eyes too.

What the King Ranch has in beauty, it certainly doesn’t lack in brawn. The truck has enough power for almost any job. A 365-horsepower engine means there’s a little bark to this Ford’s bite as well. The roughest terrain will seem like a play-pen for this outdoor devil. All-in-all, the Ford F-150 King Ranch is the perfect mix of practicality with a well-thought-out exterior and interior. You’ll find comfort along with eye-candy in this year’s fantastic new model of the world’s most versatile truck.
