2017 Ford F-150 Review

If you're a driver who likes to put your pickup truck to work, or who travels with a trailer in tow, look no further than the 2017 Ford F-150. If you're already the owner of Ford pickup, you know these trucks are built to last while keeping their powerful look and consistent reliability.

Our team at Delong Ford Inc. wants to keep our drivers in Dwight, Streator, and Morris informed about all things Ford F-150, and we're proud to represent the magnificence behind Ford trucks.

Optimum Engine Options

Who doesn't like options when it comes to engine sizes and power? The Ford F-150 comes with five different engine options: the base 282-horsepower V6, three twin-turbocharged V6s, and a V8 engine.

Along with these massive engine sizes, you won't sacrifice fuel economy. The Ford F-150 has an EPA-estimated 19/26 city/highway MPG, so you'll be cruising along to your next job site without stopping at the pump.

In It for the Long Haul: Towing & Maximum Payload

The inspiring capabilities of the 2017 F-150 have dropped many jaws since its debut to the public. Who would've thought that this classic American pickup could have such advanced power and technology? Take its towing capacity, for instance-it can tow up to 12,200 pounds when properly equipped.

If that wasn't enough, Ford managed to make towing trailers a much easier process with the addition of the Pro Trailer Backup Assist. With this dynamic combination of power and technology, you'll be able to tow much more efficiently. Paired with the Blind Spot Information System, driving with a trailer is easier than ever.

In terms of maximum payload, the F-150 can carry up to 3,270 pounds, so go ahead and load up all of your tools, equipment, or even luggage for your next family vacation!

F-150 Off-Roading

This 2017 F-150 review wouldn't be complete without informing potential buyers that Ford has managed to once again create a vehicle that was born for off-road travel and tough terrain.

With shock absorbers made to master even the steepest inclines, the skid plates underneath the F-150 guard the beautiful exterior of this truck from the inevitable wear and tear that dirt roads and other natural terrain can cause.

Another awesome capability of this one-of-a-kind pickup is the ability to view almost every inch of your truck on the 8-inch interior display. This also aids in any kind of off-road travel (or fun in general!) you plan to perform.
