2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew

2017 Ford F-150
2017 Ford F-150

Pros

  • Impressively high tow and payload ratings
  • Lots of available comfort, convenience and safety tech
  • Wide number of available engines
  • Raptor version is outstanding off-road

Cons

  • Aluminum body panels can be more expensive to repair than steel
  • Ride is somewhat stiff when the bed is empty
  • We found it difficult to match the 2.7-liter engine's EPA ratings


Which F-150 does Edmunds recommend?

Several engines are available for the F-150, but one is a standout. The newly redesigned 3.5-liter V6 and its accompanying 10-speed automatic are an extremely appealing combo, and we'd have a hard time picking a different engine from the F-150 lineup. The Lariat offers a good balance between luxury and everyday pickup usability, so we'd go with that one. It's not much more than the XLT equipped with the 302A package, with which it shares most of its features. And since we're social creatures here at Edmunds, we'd give our friends breathing room that only the cavernous SuperCrew affords.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

You'll easily find a pickup that meets your needs in the diverse 2017 Ford F-150 lineup. The F-150 boasts high tow and payload ratings and some of the best fuel economy in the light-duty segment. The off-road-ready Raptor is back, too, and ready to dominate any terrain you put in front of it.

The latest generation F-150 offers all the performance you need along with a refined modern touch. It has some features such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system, which allows you to control the direction of your trailer with a simple dashboard mounted knob. There's also the F-150's impressively quick Sync 3 infotainment system, a quiet cabin, and all the available luxury amenities you could ask for. Aluminum body panels and an aluminum bed (rather than traditional steel) help make the 2017 F-150 the lightest truck in its class, too. Put it all together and you've got one of our favorite trucks on the road.

Trim levels & features

There's a deep catalog of features, options, packages, engines and bed configurations for the 2017 Ford F-150, and we'll help you sort through them all. The F-150 is available in six primary trim levels: base XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited. There's also a high-performance off-road Raptor variant that exists outside the standard lineup. The XL with the 101A package makes for a decent work truck, but you should upgrade to at least the XLT with the 301A package for a passenger-friendly pickup. The Lariat is the gateway to the luxury truck you've been saving for.

The Ford F-150 is available in three cab styles: regular, SuperCab (extended) and SuperCrew (crew cab). Three bed lengths are offered, depending on which cab style is chosen: a 6.5- or a 8-foot bed is available on regular and SuperCabs, and the SuperCrew is eligible only for a 5.5- or a 6.5-foot bed.

Several engines are available, starting with a 3.5-liter V6 (282 horsepower, 253 pound-feet). A turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 is next (325 hp, 375 lb-ft), followed by a 5.0-liter V8 (385 hp, 387 lb-ft). All are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. A turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (375 hp, 470 lb-ft) leads the pack, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Any of the above engines can be ordered on the humble XL work truck.

Speaking of the base XL, its standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, trailer sway control, pre-wired trailer connections, manual mirrors and windows, vinyl flooring, a cloth-upholstered 40/20/40-split front bench, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a driver information display, air-conditioning, a 4.2-inch central display screen and a four-speaker radio with an auxiliary jack. SuperCab and SuperCrew models receive 60/40-split folding rear seats and two additional speakers, and any 4x4 model gets front tow hooks. The 3.5-liter engine is standard on most XL configurations. The turbocharged 2.7-liter is mandatory on certain versions of the 4x2 extended-cab and crew-cab models, while the 5.0-liter comes on 4x4 versions of those models.

An optional 101A package adds power windows and locks (including the tailgate), power mirrors, remote locking and unlocking, cruise control, Ford's MyKey vehicle control feature, a bigger driver information screen, Sync voice controls, Bluetooth, smartphone app integration, a USB port and a CD player.

Other XL add-ons include chrome and sport appearance packages, the FX4 Off-Road package, side steps, a tailgate assist step, drop-in or spray-in bedliners, remote vehicle tracking and trailer tow packages with Ford's Pro Trailer Backup Assist system (essentially a self-steering system to simplify backing up with a trailer).

The XLT trim includes the XL's optional 101A package along with alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and exterior trim, foglights, a keypad entry system, rear privacy glass, carpeting, four-way-adjustable headrests, manual driver and passenger lumbar adjustments, and additional interior storage bins and pockets.

For the XLT, there are a few options. The Mid 301A option package adds heated mirrors, an auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirror, a trailer hitch, a cargo management system with four tie-down cleats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat (with power lumbar adjustment), power-adjustable pedals, rear under-seat storage, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rearview camera and a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The Luxury 302A package includes those items along with a power-sliding rear window, rear parking sensors, LED bed lighting, remote ignition, heated and 10-way power-adjustable front seats (with power lumbar adjustment), a 110-volt power outlet, an 8-inch touchscreen (with Sync 3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and an additional USB port. Notable standalone options include box side steps, a regular sunroof (SuperCab), a panoramic sunroof (SuperCrew), blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, inflatable rear seat belts and a navigation system.

When you step up to the F-150 Lariat, many of the XLT's Luxury 302A features come standard; the turbocharged 2.7-liter engine is also standard. You also get 18-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, power-folding mirrors, an 8-inch driver information display with expanded capabilities, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver-seat memory settings, ambient lighting, leather upholstery and ventilated front seats.

In addition to many of the options offered on the XLT, the Lariat is also eligible for the Mid 501A package and Luxury 502A packages. The Mid 501A package includes the rest of the 302A's features plus a remote tailgate release and front-facing spotlights, while the Luxury 502A package adds LED headlights and taillights, automatic high beams, automatic wipers, a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel, front bucket seats, heated rear outboard seats (SuperCrew), a navigation system, Sync Connect and an 11-speaker Sony audio system with HD radio. Other options include lane departure warning, power-deployable running boards, a surround-view camera system, an automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning.

The King Ranch trim is only offered as a SuperCrew and builds on the Luxury 502A package with a Western styling theme inside and out and with the 5.0-liter V8 underhood. With a bit more conventional luxury equipment, the Platinum trim adds 20-inch wheels, power-deployable running boards, and wood and aluminum interior trim. Essentially at the top of the range is the F-150 Limited, which comes with the turbocharged 3.5-liter motor, 22-inch wheels, upgraded leather upholstery in the front, unique styling details and many of the F-150's optional features as standard.

The off-road-focused F-150 Raptor features a specially tuned version of the turbocharged 3.5-liter engine (450 hp, 510 lb-ft). Its feature set is similar to the XLT's but gets a reinforced frame, a special four-wheel-drive system, a modified, long-travel suspension, flared fenders, skid plates, 17-inch wheels with upgraded off-road tires, and special interior trim with leather and cloth upholstery. The Raptor is available with many of the same option packages you can get with the XLT and Lariat as well as a few exterior styling packages, a Torsen limited-slip front differential and forged, bead-lock capable wheels.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions, although trim levels share many aspects. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat Crew Cab (5.0L V8; 4x4; 6-speed automatic; 5.6-ft bed).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Ford F-150 has received a revision to its infotainment system, which was changed from the MyFord Touch system to Sync 3 in 2016. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Ford F-150.

Driving

4
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.

Acceleration

4.5
With a stout 385 hp from the 5.0-liter V8, a F-150 4x4 reached 60 mph in 6.9 seconds in our testing. Power is immediate whether leaving the line or passing slower traffic, and that's with the standard 3.31-to-1 axle ratio.

Braking

4.5
The brake pedal feels reassuringly firm and easy to modulate in everyday driving, and the brakes feel just as capable when the bed is loaded with cargo. In our emergency panic-brake test, stopping from 60 mph required only 132 feet, a few feet shorter than average for similar pickups.

Steering

3
Steering response is appropriate for a full-size pickup, feeling neither too eager nor too slow. Low-speed effort is light, allowing for quick and easy multi-point turns, but there's not quite enough resistance at speed or when cornering.

Handling

4
Despite the large full-size truck dimensions, the F-150 is reasonably agile around town or on a winding canyon road. With an empty bed, the rear tires are prone to some skittishness over broken pavement, which is typical for pickups.

Drivability

5
The 5.0-liter V8 churns out 387 lb-ft of torque, which makes for steady and willing response at modest throttle openings. The engine smoothly bridges the gaps as the six-speed automatic shifts despite the economical 3.31-to-1 standard axle gearing.

Off-road

4
With the FX4 off-road option (skid plates, electronic locking rear differential and hill descent control), the F-150 ably scaled moderate terrain. The low front air dam and running boards do limit ground clearance somewhat, but each can be removed.

Comfort

There's a lot to like about the F-150 Lariat. The front and rear seats both provide appropriate support and all-day comfort, and the cabin environment is quiet and calm. The FX4 off-road package does stiffen the ride somewhat, but never to objectionable levels — and it's an option.

Seat comfort

5
The Lariat's standard leather bucket seats are well-shaped and stay comfortable over hundreds of miles, and they come with heating and ventilation. The crew cab's rear seats are just about as comfortable. The 502A package adds rear seat heaters.

Ride comfort

3
The FX4 off-road option stiffens up the ride slightly, particularly in the backseat, but it's still not harsh or bothersome. As with most pickups, the rear wheels tend to be a little skittish over rough surfaces if the bed is unladen.

Noise & vibration

5
Wind and road noise is nearly absent on the highway, especially if you do without the optional larger tow mirrors. Engine noise is pleasantly muted when cruising, but the 5.0-liter V8 emits a satisfying rumble when you floor it.

Interior

4
The F-150 Lariat gets high marks for everyday ease of use and interior quality. Combined with the ratings for comfort, it's simply a pleasant place to spend a full day on the road.

Ease of use

Most major controls are well labeled and logically placed, and the customizable gauge cluster affords a wealth of information. Armrests are at the level you expect, so you can comfortably rest your elbows and steer on long drives. The massive shifter is the only ergonomic hiccup.

Getting in/getting out

3.5
The F-150 requires some effort — even for the average adult — to climb in. Fortunately, the large door openings and the Lariat's standard running boards are a help. And all four doors of the SuperCrew cab have a generous grab handle.

Roominess

5
Large and tall occupants will find plenty of space, yet the driving position is adjustable enough to prevent smaller drivers from feeling as if they're in a cavern. The SuperCrew's back row will comfortably seat three tall adults, with plenty of head- and legroom as well as shoulder room.

Visibility

5
Forward and side visibility are excellent, and the Lariat's standard backup camera helps to the rear. The optional surround-view camera system takes it to another level. Backing into a tight parking space is stress-free.

Quality

4
The F-150 is solidly built and, despite its workhorse intentions, the Lariat's interior is pleasantly luxurious and free of any squeaks or creaks. We noticed that the rear crew-cab doors require quite a bit of force to fully close.

Utility

5
The F-150 features plenty of anchor points in the bed to secure cargo, and interior storage is generous. The center armrest bin is positively huge, as are the door pockets, and there are clever spots to hold your personal items.

Small-item storage

4.5
There's no shortage of places to store small items in the F-150's cabin. There's a small bottleholder and a larger bin on each door, and on either side of the front center console is another cubby to throw items in. The bin under the front armrest is massive.

Cargo space

5
The floor is perfectly level in the back, so storing a lot of gear in the back is as simple as flipping the 60/40-split rear seats up. The seats also conceal a useful storage bin underneath.

Child safety seat accommodation

5
All four LATCH hooks are easily accessible and right out in the open. Anchors are straps located just above the seatbacks.

Towing

5
Our 5.0-liter F-150 Crew Cab 4x4 test sample can tow 8,900 pounds with the standard 3.31 axle ratio, an excellent rating that surpasses the 2.7-liter EcoBoost's most capable version by nearly 1,000 pounds. Optional 3.73 axles bump that up to 10,800 pounds.

Technology

The Sync 3 infotainment system that comes on midtier and above F-150 models is quick to respond to user inputs and easy to use. Smartphone-friendly amenities such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also on tap to beam popular apps onto the touchscreen.

New 10-Speed (Schwinn :) Transmission
QA Man,01/29/2017
After 18,000 miles of ownership I am very impressed with my new F-150 XLT Supercrew 4x4. It has the new 3.5L Ecoboost engine and 10 speed automatic transmission (the tool only lets me enter the review under 6 speed) with 3.55 gears. After 7 years of trouble-free ownership, I traded in my 2009 F-150 4x4 with the 6-speed trans, 4.6L 3V (V8) engine, and 3.55 gears for this truck. The powertrain is what makes the 2017 truly shine. Power feels endless and the truck is deceptively fast. The 10 speed shifts far smoother than my old 6 speed. It always seems to be in the perfect gear, and shifts are quick. I have not experienced any gear hunting or hesitation while shifting. Towing my 4,500 lb. boat is no problem at all. The truck doesn't seem to strain at all even while accelerating up long hills at 70+ mph. Acceleration feels effortless, and the engine is so quiet it is easy to find myself speeding. The Sync 3 system is a huge upgrade over MyFord Touch, and it is really intuitive. Overall the truck is beautiful and fuel economy has improved as the engine has broken in. I average over 19mpg in mostly city driving and plenty of idling during the cold winter starts (I always disable the auto stop/start feature). I have gotten 23 mpg during highway trips. The cab is huge, backseat is comfortable for adults, and plenty of storage. I do have two critiques. The front seats are a little firmer and less comfortable than the seats in my old 2009. They are power with lumbar and are certainly comfortable, but the seats in the 2009 seemed to hit all the right spots and fit like a glove. The other critique is the ride can be a little jittery on rough roads when unloaded. It is still an acceptable ride quality, but I wish Ford would offer a soft ride option for those who don't need to tow 12,000 pounds (I will never tow more than 7,000). It actually rides much better with a few hundred pounds in the bed. I am confident this truck will hold up just as well as my last F-150 with years of trouble free performance. Great job Ford!
If you want the best, forget the rest!
L. Mc,02/04/2017
I've owned many trucks over the years. I've never had a Ram, but have owned many Chevrolet and GMC pick ups. My father and father-in-law have F-150 trucks. I recently sold my GMC Sierra SLT 4WD Crew Cab and bought a 2017 F-150 Platinum 4WD SuperCrew with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and new 10-speed transmission. This truck is the fanciest and nicest truck I have ever been in. This thing is nicer than the vast majority of Mercedes and BMW cars. Tons of room, engine with gobs of power, very quiet, and awesome material quality used throughout. It is expensive, so you need to buy from a dealer than will give steep discounts like I did (Long-Lewis Ford in Muscle Shoals, AL). But this is one amazing truck! I would rather travel down the highway in this thing than a Cadillac!
Great Truck with Goofy Security System
Hank Gartland,08/09/2017
I have a 2WD V-8 which was not an option in the model drop-down. I have only owned this truck for two months, so I could not comment on a lot of the questions such as repair frequency, etc. My initial impression of this truck is very positive except for one feature that is so idiotic that it is hard to believe. The design of the driver's door handle and key lock makes the 2017 F-150 extremely easy to break into. The lock cylinder is mounted on the door handle, not on the door. When you pull the door handle out to open the door, you can look behind the door handle and see the lock cylinder. To break into the truck, you just need to pull the door handle out, slip a pair of pliers behind the handle over the lock cylinder, and turn it. Doing so enables you to unlock the truck, open the door, and get in within a couple of seconds without tripping any alarms. I had a weapon stolen from my truck at a restaurant. When the police arrived, they went right to the door lock and showed me how it looked like it was off center. The police say they see this all the time with the new F-150s. How could Ford engineers come up with something so stupid? The fix is to replace the driver's handle and lock cylinder with one designed for the passenger door. This fixes this bug, but leaves you exposed to difficulties getting into the truck if your truck battery ever runs down completely. If this happens, you have to either break a window to open the hood or have the truck towed to the dealer. Wow, what a monumental goof!!!! See the Ford F-150 Forum for a discussion of this problem ( https://www.f150forum.com ).
Poor way to get a new truck
Stiles,06/10/2017
I went to sleep and rolled and totaled my 2013 Platinum. That truck handled the wreck so well in keeping me safe, I thought Ford is the way to go. My new Lariat with the 3.5L V6 and 10 speed transmission is not a step down. It is a step up from the 2013. It has everything the Platinum had an much more. I do a lot of freeway driving. The 3.5L V6 and the 10 speed make the entry to the 75 MPH line of traffic easy and safe. Shazam, it is quick. I added a spray-in , a Tonneau top, and power running boards. It is like driving a royal limo. In the initial 1500 miles, the average is 20.8 mpg, up 5 mpg from the 2013 Platinum. I would have a hard time listing all the superlatives that cross my mind about this truck. Quick, quiet, comfortable, well appointed, love the auto high beams, improved rear camera, voice activated navigation, and on and on. After 25,000 miles, my attitude and appreciaion for this F150 has not changed. If anything, it has been enhanced with tie and usage. Since I do a lot of freeway driving, I really like the quick aceleration from the entrance ramp to the line of traffic, The yellow warning light in the side mirror has been very helpful in my avoiding accidents with vehicles in my blind spot. Safety enhancments are overdue and worthwhile. Update: After 12,000 very enjoyable miles, a six point buck decided to jump out of the bush on the side of the road and smack me on the point of the right front fender. It was so quick there was no time to respond. The deer went flying into the ditch and left me with $5000+ damage. Compliments to Henson Ford Body Shop. Can't tell it ever happened. It looks great and handles as smoothly as before. After the rental car, this Ford is a dream. Perhaps the old adage is true, "absence makes the heart grow fonder". When choosing the model on this template, I was not given the option of choosing the 3.5L V6 Ecoboost, but this truck has that engine.

More about the 2017 Ford F-150

Vehicle Overview
Shoppers pretty much want everything from their full-size light-duty trucks these days. You want your new truck to be comfortable, have the most modern tech on the inside, get impressive fuel economy and, oh yeah, do all that truck stuff, too, like hauling cords of firewood and towing an Airstream travel trailer. It's easy to take all of this capability for granted, but the 2017 Ford F-150 is a perfect example of that kind of modern truck.

The latest generation F-150 offers all the performance you need along with a refined modern touch. It has neat tricks up its sleeve such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system, which allows you to control the direction of your trailer with a simple dashboard mounted knob. There's also the F-150's impressively quick Sync 3 infotainment system, a quiet cabin, and all the available luxury amenities you could ask for, such as ventilated seats and power deployable running boards. Aluminum body panels and an aluminum bed (rather than traditional steel) help make the F-150 the lightest truck in its class, too.

This year's 2017 F-150 also gets a few updates worth noting. The big news is the redesigned version of the top-of-the-line turbocharged 3.5-liter engine that's hooked up to a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission. Yes, 10. It sounds like overkill, but it helps improve fuel economy and it provides an ideal gear ratio for just about any towing scenario. To top off the changes, Ford has brought back one of the baddest off-road trucks out there, the F-150 Raptor. It's wider and significantly more powerful than the standard F-150 and comes with an upgraded suspension, heavy-duty skid plates and tons of character. Head out to open desert terrain in a Raptor, and you're going to feel as if you're driving your own personal Baja-race trophy truck.

Although the F-150 is an outstanding truck, that doesn't mean it's the only full-size truck we'd recommend. The 2017 Ram 1500 is one of our favorites thanks in part to its excellent ride quality and impressive available diesel engine. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (and its GMC Sierra 1500 twin) are lifelong rivals to the F-150 that offer quiet and well-appointed cabins along with multiple powerful engines to choose from. As for the Raptor, it's in a class by itself, though the stylized Ram 1500 Rebel and rock-crawling Ram 2500 Power Wagon could be worth a look.

Clearly, if you're shopping for a full-size truck, there are a number of excellent choices. But even among all that stiff competition, the 2017 Ford F-150 is still one of our favorite trucks on the road. It should be right near the top of your consideration list.

Performance and MPG
The 2017 Ford F-150's base engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This combination can achieve 20 mpg in combined city/highway driving, and maximum towing capacity is 7,600 pounds.

The first of three optional engines is a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that increases output to 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. The 2.7-liter is also paired with a six-speed automatic. We've subjected a few different F-150s equipped with this engine to our performance tests; expect a 0-60 mph time of around 6.3 seconds, an impressive result for a light-duty truck. This engine is rated at 22 mpg combined and can tow as much as 8,500 pounds.

Although the 5.0-liter V8 isn't turbocharged, it's a tried-and-true choice for both its towing prowess and fuel economy that is attainable in the real world. This one produces 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque and comes with the six-speed automatic. In Edmunds testing, a V8-powered 4WD SuperCrew reached 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. Rated fuel economy is 18 mpg combined, and towing capacity tops out at 11,100 pounds.

Atop of the heap you'll find the redesigned 3.5-liter turbocharged V6, which is now good for 375 hp and a stout 470 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission. This very capable and well-rounded combination is rated at 21 mpg combined, and properly equipped versions can tow up to 12,200 pounds.

Of course the four-wheel-drive versions are rated 1 or 2 mpg lower, and the top three engines are available with an optional heavy payload package that saps another mpg or two.

Meanwhile, the Raptor is powered by a high-output version of the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that belts out 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. Only available with the 10-speed automatic transmission, it consumes fuel at the rate of 16 mpg in combined driving. Towing is not its strong suit, however, due to its highly optimized off-road suspension.

The Raptor's standard four-wheel-drive system has a driver-adjustable terrain management system that offers six different modes (Normal, Street, Weather, Mud and Sand, Baja and Rock Crawling) used to alter the truck's engine, transmission, traction control and brake systems according to terrain. Weather mode, for example, calibrates the Raptor for rain, snow and ice, while Baja can be used for high-speed desert running.

Safety
Standard safety features on all 2017 Ford F-150 models include antilock brakes, stability and traction control, trailer sway control, full-length side curtain airbags and automatic crash notification via paired cell phones.

Ford's MyKey system is standard on the XLT and above. It monitors the vehicle and allows owners to set certain limitations and alerts for valets and teen drivers. Optional safety equipment includes rearview and surround-view cameras, rear parking sensors and several driver aid systems. Those systems include adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation, a forward collision warning system that also pre-charges the brakes for maximum responsiveness, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and inflatable rear seat belts.

In Edmunds brake testing, current F-150 test vehicles have generally needed 126 to 132 feet to stop from 60 mph, which is about average for the segment.

In government crash tests, the 2017 Ford F-150 received five out of five stars for overall, front- and side-impact protection and four stars for rollover protection. When the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested the F-150, it gave the F-150 a top rating of Good in all tests, including small-overlap front-impact, moderate-overlap front-impact, side-impact, roof strength and head restraints/seats (whiplash protection).

Additional Information
The 2017 Ford F-150 pickup is the big Kahuna, the top of the food chain and the king of all it surveys. The F-Series trucks have been the best-selling new vehicle in the world for decades, and Ford is determined to keep that record.

Buyers don't want a truck that doesn't meet their needs. So the F-150 is available as everything from a stripped-down, regular-cab work truck that's built to take decades of hardworking abuse up to a four-door crew-cab chockablock with technology and luxury. Some of that technology is neat stuff, including a Pro Trailer Backup Assist system that allows you to precisely pilot the truck by using a single knob when towing a trailer. The Sync 3 information, navigation and entertainment system works intuitively and rapidly.

When lavishly equipped, it may be that the F-150 is the most luxurious vehicle ever sold as a Ford. But the signature feature of this F-150 is its aluminum body, which knocks its curb weight down to the lowest in the class.

Under the hood, the marquee news is that the popular twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 has been significantly tweaked and is now paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The payoff should be better fuel economy, better performance and bragging rights for anyone who takes particular pride in the size of a gearbox.

But it's the return of the F-150 Raptor after a two-year absence that is most heartening to hardcore truck fans. Now powered by a version of the EcoBoost V6, the Raptor is wider and more powerful and has an even better suspension than the old Raptor. And that makes it dizzyingly delicious. Expect the Raptor — the Ferrari of factory off-road trucks — to remain in short supply throughout the 2017 model year.

Even in aluminum, the F-150 is a big truck, and big trucks get crummy mileage. The most fuel-efficient F-150 model is a base, regular-cab, two-wheel-drive version, powered by the twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6. It gets an EPA-rated 21 mpg combined (18 city/24 highway). Coming in with less stellar numbers is a 4x4 F-150 with the big four-door cab and the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. You can expect 19 mpg combined from it (17 city/21 highway).

Full-size trucks are available in so many variations, with so many available options, that just comprehending the breadth of possibilities can be mind-boggling. But never fear: Edmunds is here to help you select the 2017 Ford F-150 that's just right for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Ford F-150?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
