Why You Should Test Drive the 2017 F-150

Can 26 million drivers be wrong?

Since 1977, no major automaker has sold more trucks than Ford has with the F-150. Every day Ford sells an average of 2,452 F-Series trucks in the United States — more than both the Chevy Silverado and Sierra combined, according to Automotive News Data Center. Break that sales figure down a bit more and you'll find that Ford sells 102 trucks per hour or nearly two F-150s every minute, every day, seven days a week.

These sales figures should tell drivers one thing — Ford builds great trucks and the 2017 F-150 that's available for lease or purchase at Rusty Eck Ford is no exception.

The 2017 F-150 is available in three bed lengths, three cab options and seven trim levels – XT, XTL, LARIAT, Raptor, King Ranch®, Platinum and Limited.

A Truly Powerful Performance

Not only does the new F-150 deliver best-in-class performance in max payload (3,270 pounds), torque (470 lb.-ft.) and highway fuel economy (EPA-Estimated 26 MPG.), it also provides drivers with more engine options than the 2017 Sierra 1500 offers. The 2017 F-150 comes standard with a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine. You can also equip the available 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 with Auto Stop-Start Technology, 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 or the all-new 3.6L EcoBoost V6, which features the first-ever RWD 10-speed automatic transmission in production.

The 2017 F-150 makes backing out of the tightest parking spaces easier with an available 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display. It also has plenty of available class-exclusive driver-assist technologies, such as Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, Active Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. In addition to these advanced safety features, the 2017 F-150 was the ONLY truck to win a 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating.
