New Engine/Transmission Pairing Provide Efficiency

With a new EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic transmission, there are some changes afoot for the 2017 Ford F-150. What hasn’t changed is that esteemed consumer advice publication and website, Kelley Blue Book (KBB), has named the might Ford the “Best Buy” of the year in the truck category. That’s the third year in a row for the honor, cementing the F-150’s role as “America’s Truck.” KBB lists its best buys in the truck, car and SUV category each year as a service to consumers who want a vehicle that will perform with power and efficiency while long outlasting any factory warranty. You can feel the power and efficiency of the new F-150 by taking a test drive at Chapman Ford today.

New EcoBoost Improves Power and Performance

Customers who were amazed at the performance of the original EcoBoost engine will really be stunned by the latest version. This peppy 3.5L V6 takes all the best aspects of the original and turns the volume up to 11. With new direct twin port injection, lighter components and a totally reworked turbocharger, the latest edition not only produces 10 more horsepower than the original, but now has 470 pound feet of torque. A new 10-speed automatic transmission delivers maximum efficiency and power when you need it. The transmission provides torque through the complete operating range and has a special trailer/tow mode, making the 2017 Ford F-150 a great choice for hauling and towing.

‘The Country’s Best-Selling Vehicle Just Keeps Getting Better’

That’s the headline straight from the KBB.com article extolling the virtues of the new F-150. KBB says the Ford F-150 “sets the benchmark for pickups with its blend of capability, competence and innovation, all available in a wide range of models for every budget.” KBB says its no surprise that many families use the F-150 as their everyday driver. The truck “enables effortless power for acceleration and passing,” and with features like massaging front seats, power running boards and remote tailgate drop, the F-150 delivers the luxury, comfort and convenience that many American families seek.

Plenty of Trim Levels for Different Tastes

Whether you just need a basic work truck or like one with all the bells and whistles, the F-150 has a trim level for you. The STX Appearance Package delivers a more aggressive look, with 20-inch machined wheels, a billet grill and privacy glass.
