Ford trucks have been going strong and providing drivers from Bradley to Peotone with the impressive capabilities, powerful engines, fuel efficiency, space, and technology that have made them a well-known household name for years and years, and they have no intention of stopping. The 2017 lineup of Ford trucks has finally been released and we’re happy to report that we’re still impressed with the quality that they continue to provide. Find out more about the lineup and what it has to offer below.
One thing that never fails to impress Peotone drivers about Ford trucks is their ability to consistently provide plenty of cargo box space, interior space, and extreme towing and payload handling capacities. With the 2017 Ford truck lineup, drivers will be able to select vehicles with all kinds of various combinations of these important components. For those looking for more towing and payload power, the Ford Super Duty and Ford Raptor ready and waiting, while those looking for a more versatile daily driver with the ability to move cargo when necessary can still find a great fit with the Ford F-Series trucks.
Ford trucks also keep options open for Bradley drivers by allowing them a wide array of powertrain configurations to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a high-powered diesel engine with enough ponies to conquer any feat or you’re looking for a more balanced horsepower to torque ratio, Ford trucks have the perfect combination for you.
The 2017 Ford truck lineup is a small one, consisting of only three vehicles, however the power and performance that these vehicles are able to provide surely make up for the low number of model options. The available trucks include:
2017 Ford F-150 – There’s a reason why the F-Series has been such a hot selling truck line for so long, and the 2017 line doesn’t plan on stopping that legacy. The full series consists of seven models, each with a wide array of coloring, powertrain, and feature options to pick and choose from.
The base model of the 2017 Ford F-150 series is equipped with a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine with the power to dole out 325 hp, 375 lb-ft of torque, 19 mpg in the city, and 26 mpg on the highway. With this engine the F-150 can tow up to 8,500 lbs, but when equipped with an even more powerful engine it can easily tow up to 12,000 lbs.
2017 Ford Super Duty – Named the Motor Trend Truck of the Year for 2017, the Ford Super Duty means serious business. With a lighter, but stronger body than before, the Super Duty is ready to take on even the toughest imaginable jobs. The high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy body prepares the truck to tackle towing as much as 21,000 lbs and carrying a payload as heavy as 7,630 lbs.
The available 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V8 engine steals the show with best-in-class horsepower and torque capacities. This aggressive machine delivers a roaring 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque.
2017 Ford Raptor– Technically, the Raptor is a member of the F-Series, but it’s capabilities and powerful background have earned it a spot of its own. The Raptor is built to withstand the tough off-roading excursions you really want to go on. An onslaught of performance enhancing technology makes this bad boy truly ready for action. Some of these technologies include a four-wheel drive, TORQUE-ON-DEMAND transfer case, class-exclusive beadlock-capable wheels, and available 360-degree camera.
One of the most exciting features of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor would be the new Terrain Management System which comes equipped with six selectable drive modes including street, Baja, mud/sand, rock crawl, and weather. These new modes make the Raptor a truly unstoppable force when faced with any and all kinds of weather and driving conditions.
