We Recommend

The XLT trim is the one you should look out for if you want any sort of passenger comfort in your truck. The XL variant focuses more on the work aspects of the truck rather than luxury.

2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Engine

8.5/10
“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.” –Edmunds.com

Engine and Transmission

The engine duty on the Ford F-150 is done by a 3.5L turbo V-6 motor paired to a 6 speed auto box. The engine is good to produce 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. The engine pulls from a standstill in a very calm fashion but struggles to get to highway speeds.

2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Competition

Vs. Nissan Titan

The Nissan Titan is a full-sized heavy duty truck from the oriental car makers. The car certainly falls shorts on looks especially 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.

Vs. Chevrolet Silverado

Chevrolet Silverado is one of the more conventional looking trucks amongst the rivals. The vehicle features a rock solid and sturdy built. The cabin is nice to look at and even comfortable for the passengers.

But, the Ford F-150 is certainly the more modern vehicle both inside and outside while the Silverado is a more traditional vehicle.

­­­­­­Vs. Toyota Tundra

Toyota Tundra is one most reliable trucks out there in the market. The interior quality on the truck is far superior to a lot of trucks in the segment. Even when it comes to the looks department. The Toyota looks fairly modern and pleasing to the eye from all the angles.

The Tundra still certainly falls short of the pedigree of the Ford F-150 in terms every possible angle there is.

2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Final Verdict

Ford F-150 feature a brilliant interior set up and the materials used feel like they come straight out of a luxury sedan. The power stats are also up to the mark. But, with luxury interiors comes luxury prices. The car has the tendency to get real expensive, real fast. There are a lot of trims to choose from and there is certainly at least one that will suit you at your price. So all in all there is little to nothing that can get wrong if you decide to buy this potent pick-up truck.
