With a lower MSRP than the Chevy Silverado 1500, not to mention 25 highway miles-per-gallon and a new-this-year transmission, the 2017 Ford F-150 pulls even farther ahead of the competition, reminding us once again why the Ford F-series is the number one-selling line of pickup trucks in America!

While the 2017 Ford F-150 leaves the Chevy Silverado 1500 in the dust even at its most basic package, the F-150 also offers a wide range of options for those who want to customize their trucks, including five engine options to the Silverado's four, as well as the long-awaited Raptor trim package, which enables you to optimize your F-150 for the ultimate off-road experience. So whatever you're looking for in a mid-size pickup, the 2017 Ford F-150 is the clear choice for you. Advantage: Ford F-150

Ford F-150 Power and Handling

The Car Connection called the 2017 Ford F-150 "a solid nudge forward," which may sound like faint praise until you take into account the fact that the Ford F-series have been the best-selling truck in America for more than 40 years! How did they stay on top for so long? By providing top-notch handling, industry-leading power, all the latest technology, and the durability that you've come to expect from trucks that are built Ford tough.

The 2017 F-150 continues that tradition and pushes it forward with a 375-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, a brand-new transmission, and a maximum towing capacity of around 12,200 lbs, all without sacrificing fuel economy, which is why the 2017 Ford F-150 still enjoys a respectable 25 miles-per-gallon on the highway. Plus, you can always upgrade your ride to accommodate your needs and lifestyle with a variety of engine options and trim packages available only in the Ford F-150. Advantage: Ford F-150.

Besides its ruggedly handsome exterior, the 2017 F-150 combines hauling power with interior comfort and all the modern amenities, including available safety and driver-assist features like a Blind Spot Information System, trailer coverage, cross-traffic alert, and more.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: Leaner and Meaner Than Ever Before

Sure, the 2017 Ford F-150 is designed to be as comfortable off the road as on it, but if you really want to maximize your off-road performance, then the F-150 Raptor is the truck to beat.
