The 2017 Ford F-150 is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that churns out 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, this is a common powertrain across all its trim offerings. The Four trims offered are priced at an  MSRP range of $27,110-$36,205. All the trims are offered in two drivetrains, FWD and RWD. With a fine gas mileage that has a combined reading of 20 miles to a gallon, the 2017 F-150 also delivers in terms of towing and hauling, being true to a pick-up truck's duty.

2017 Ford F-150

Keep in mind, that the interiors of the 2017 Ford F-150 are worthy only in the high-end trims. The base trim variants get a very rudimentary interior, we won't even consider it as comfortable. However, the exteriors of the 2017 Ford F-150 get a slight modification, the addition of chrome bumpers, sleek headlamps, and an aggressive stance. The safety offering is way above average but isn't the best in the segment.

2017 Ford F-150 Engine and Performance

7.9/10

"While many skeptics doubted a small-displacement V6 could ever replace the pulling power and longevity of big V8, Ford’s 2017 F-150 pickup has proved them all wrong. The F-150’s lightweight aluminum body shaves nearly 500 pounds off a conventional steel-body truck" - KelleyBlueBook

Engine & Transmission of the 2017 Ford F-150

Equipped with a 3.5-liter turbo V6 engine that comes along with a 6-speed automatic transmission system, this powertrain is common across the four trims offered by the 2017 Ford F-150. Priced at an MSRP range of $27,110-$36,205, the engine specs it offers are justified.

2017 Ford F-150

Churning out 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, gives this pickup truck the ability to roll out from a standstill in a calm fashion, but it fails to deliver quick acceleration on the highways. The competition comes with so much more power and torque, and it also accelerates and tows better due to the same.

The 2017 Nissan Titan offers a massive 390 hp when compared to the 282 hp of the F-150. The Toyota Tundra and Chevy Silverado rank subsequently with an offering of 381hp and 285 hp, respectively. 

Acceleration of the 2017 Ford F-150

The engine of the 2017 F-150 is a modest one compared to its competition. Delivering just 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, the truck goes from 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds. However, to our utter amazement, this pickup truck by Ford performs better than the 2017 Nissan Titan that is power-packed with 390hp.

The fastest truck in competition is the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, it goes from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds, utilizing all of its 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. It is intriguing that trucks with higher power aren't delivering in terms of acceleration, however, they do deliver in terms of towing capacity and payload capacity.

Ride and Handling of the 2017 Ford F-150

It goes without saying that Ford is now a veteran in this industry and especially in the segment of pickup trucks. The F-150 is the most sold vehicle in the US, making a loud statement for itself. The handling of this pickup truck is seamless and extremely comforting. There is simply nothing to complain about, however, just like any pick-up truck, this one too is prone to body rolls on terrain. 

Braking of the 2017 Ford F-150

Equipped with the added advantage of being lightweight, the 13.8-inch front rotors and the 13.7 inch rear rotors help to bring the Ford F-150 to a stop from 60 mph in just 119 feet. This is clearly the best brake performance in class. Moreover, the braking is smooth and extremely responsive to the inputs on the pedal.

2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Nissan Titan

The Nissan Titan is a full sized heavy duty truck. The Titan certainly falls shorts on looks when compared to the rivals like the F-150. However, the car features tried and tested rugged V8 engines that are known for their bomb proof reliability and the base price even with options is fairly considerate. The Nissan Titan is a capable vehicle but it still falls short of the Ford F-150 as a truck overall.
