The 2017 F-150 Pick-up Offers Shear Performance With a Refined Modern Touch.

By  | 

In today motoring world I have seen people express their love for cars and in conjunctions with the performance of the cars they choose. The economy is changing and in almost all the continent of the world. You’ll easily find a car that meets your needs in the diverse range of 2017. In search of that its one Ford F-150 lineup. The F-150 boasts high tow and payload ratings and some of the best fuel economy in the light-duty segment. Not forgetting the tough off-road-ready Raptor which is back, too, and ready to dominate any terrain you put in front of it.

The latest 2017 F-150 offers all the performance you need along with a refined modern touch. It has some features such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system a new system in the motoring world, which allows you to control the direction of your trailer with a simple dashboard mounted knob. There’s also the F-150’s impressively quick Sync 3 infotainment system, a quiet cabin, and all the available luxury amenities you could ask for. Aluminum body panels and an aluminum bed rather than traditional steel, these helps make the 2017 F-150 the toughest yet lightest truck in its class, too. Put it all together and you’ve got one of our favorite trucks on the road.

Major updates in the new ford include the optional turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine and paired it with a new 10-speed transmission. The new engine and transmission deliver better fuel economy while packing more horsepower and torque than before. The off-road-oriented Raptor model also returns this year with a high-output version of the 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine. There’s also a new STX Appearance package that adds additional features to the XL.

Several engines are available for the F-150, but one is a standout. The newly redesigned 3.5-liter V6 and its accompanying 10-speed automatic are an extremely appealing combo, and we’d have a hard time picking a different engine from the F-150 lineup. The Lariat offers a good balance between luxury and everyday pickup usability, so we’d go with that one. It’s not much more than the XLT equipped with the 302A package, with which it shares most of its features. And since we’re social creatures here at Sparesguide, we’d give our friends breathing room that only the cavernous SuperCrew affords.

Today the F-150 is available in six primary trim levels: base XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited. There’s also a high-performance off-road Raptor variant that exists outside the standard lineup. The XL with the 101A package makes for a decent work truck, but you should upgrade to at least the XLT with the 301A package for a passenger-friendly pickup. The Lariat is the gateway to the luxury truck you’ve been saving for. Although the 2017 Ford F-150’s venerable 5.0-liter V8 isn’t as quick as the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, but it’s still got enough thrust to support an attractive tow rating. The basic goodness of the chassis and driving experience stays the same no matter which engine you buy.

The front and rear seats both provide appropriate support and all-day comfort, and the cabin environment is quiet and calm. The FX4 off-road package does stiffen the ride somewhat, but never to objectionable levels and it’s an option. That makes the F-150 Lariat a higher rating for everyday ease of use and interior quality. Combined with the ratings for comfort, it’s simply a pleasant place to spend a full day on the road. The F-150 requires some effort even for the average adult to climb in. Fortunately, the large door openings and the Lariat’s standard running boards are a help. And all four doors of the Super Crew cab have a generous grab handle.

Large and tall occupants will find plenty of space, yet the driving position is adjustable enough to prevent smaller drivers from feeling as if they’re in a cavern. The SuperCrew’s back row will comfortably seat three tall adults, with plenty of head- and legroom as well as shoulder room. Forward and side visibility are excellent, and the Lariat’s standard backup camera helps to the rear. The optional surround-view camera system takes it to another level. Backing into a tight parking space is stress-free.

Finally our conclusion is that the F-150 is solidly built to last and, despite its workhorse intentions, the Lariat’s interior is pleasantly luxurious and free of any squeaks or creaks. It for sure it’s a truck to work for.
