Making improvements on all their vehicles vehicles each year to ensure that they are built better, perform better, and look better is main goal for Ford Motor Company. The 2017 Ford F-150 comes with many new and improved features that make it the best vehicle of its class. Ford will not disappoint you in the year 2017. Don't pass up the opportunity to drive the greatest truck on the market!

The F-150 underwent multiple changes to bring you a stronger truck.  This pickup comes equipped with a 3.5-L EcoBoost Engine paired with a 10-speed transmission which significantly improves the acceleration and overall performance of the vehicle. Ford's previous model featured a 6-speed transmission.  Rather than a V8 with one turbo, this pickup features a V6 engine with twin turbos. This is because a twin turbo V6 is as powerful as a V8 with a turbo, however the V6 is a lot lighter. The 700-pound weight difference gives the new F-150 better handling, accelerating, breaking, and gas mileage.

Unlike the last model, the new F-150 body is made of aluminum-alloy and reinforced by high-strength steel body frame to assure safety for driver and passengers. The aluminum-alloy body of the vehicle is stronger and lighter than previous models. Now, the body weighs 700 pounds lighter than the last model. This helps the vehicle with improved towing, fuel efficiency, control, breaking for the vehicle, and also makes for a safer pickup.

The new SYNC® 3 system is improved from last models and offers software that is undoubtedly easy to use. Ford gives you an 8-inch touchscreen display which is larger than before and it has many improved features. SYNC® now comes with a capacitive touch screen rather than the resistive touch screen. Users won't have to press hard on the touch screen. Capacitive touch screen uses electrical properties of the human body to sense where the person touched on the screen. This gives you an easy-touch screen with immediate help with responses. You can also play music, connect your phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto as well as use voice recognition controls among many other features with Sync.

From generation to generation, we expect all of our vehicles to improve for the better. Ford holds to their high standards so they can continue to bring its customers an all new truck that surpasses all expectations. From the body and the performance to the touch screen system and comfortable interior, Ford has improved every part of the truck in order to make it the best of its class!
