Review: 2017 Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 sits at the top of the mountain when it comes to technology, innovation, performance and power. This year's model pushes the truck even further with more power, more performance and more efficiency. 
If you thought last year's F-150 was the pickup's peak, you have to see the brand new 2017 model. 
So What's New? 
The 2017 Ford F-150 is the most capable F-150 ever. It offers a second-generation 3.5L EcoBoost engine with best in class 470 lb-ft of torque and increased horsepower over the previous versions. 
The new F-150 also offers a 10-speed automatic transmission in both two-wheel and four-wheel drive models. With closer gear ratios and patented hydraulic controls, you see improved efficiency, power and delivery. 
The new F-150 also gets an advanced trailer-tow mode for easier travel and advanced high-efficiency filtration system that extends the fluid life. 
The Perfect Modern Truck
For the past few years, the Ford F-150 has changed the game with pickups. It has an all-aluminum body and steel frame. The current F-150 is 700 lighter than it was in the past, resulting in better fuel efficiency, greater towing and payload capacities, improved power to weight ratio and improved handling. 
The Ford F-150 has class leading fuel economy, up to 26 highway MPG with the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 4x2. 
The Ford F-150 can carry more than a ton and a half, 3,270 lbs. Again, that's best in class. 
As towing goes, the F-150 maxes out with 12,200-lb towing rating, that's more than six tons. 
The Safest F-150 Ever
The F-150 is the only pickup to earn the government's 5-Star Crash Rating. It's also an IIHS Top Safety Pick when equipped with forward collision warning. 
Forward Collision Warning is an optional safety option that monitors what's happening in front of you. If the traffic ahead has stopped, the vehicle will use audible chimes and alerts to help prevent a front-end collision. 
Optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. It can also detect a vehicle passing behind you when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking space. 
The Optional Pro Trailer Backup Assist is the easiest way to hook a trailer to the truck. All you need to do is rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go, and the truck will do the rest. It's hard to explain, you just have to try it out yourself. 
Add in the optional backup camera to make getting in and out of tight spots easier than ever. 
New SYNC 3
The F-150 also comes with the all-new Ford SYNC 3 System. If you had SYNC before, Ford took all the complaints you had and made all the necessary changes. The new Ford SYNC 3 system has the best voice recognition system of any car on the road today. Say "Call Mom," and it actually calls Mom -- not, Tom, Ron, Dom, Non, etc. 
And the new voice activation system allows you to send text messages with the sound of your voice. You can also tell it to play Johnny Cash and you'll fall in to a burning ring of fire on the way home from work. 
Ford SYNC 3 connects with Apple Car Play and Android Auto for better communication between the car and phone. It will tie in to the apps already on your phone, including podcasts, Pandora, Spotify, Apple or Google Maps and more for a safer, hands-free and eyes-free ride home from work. You can also access sports scores, top news headlines and the stock market report. It even pairs with some of the top restaurant apps and you can order dinner from behind the wheel.
