The 2017 Ford F-150’s Tough Performance

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Although the 2017 Ford F-150 is classified as a light-duty pickup truck, its performance suggests otherwise. This truck boasts impressive towing and payload capacities, and there’s one model in the lineup that promises off-road prowess. Discover what’s under the hood and what the 2017 Ford F-150 is capable of accomplishing, and then experience its tough performance for yourself at Beach Ford.


The most significant contributor to a pickup truck’s performance is what propels it forward, and the 2017 Ford F-150 has a variety of powertrains available so that you can customize your performance as you see fit. Starting off the lineup is a 3.5L V6 putting out 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque.

Next up is a turbocharged 2.7L V6 making 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque, followed by a 5.0L V8 generating a balanced 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque.

Rounding out the engine lineup is a turbocharged 3.5L V6 churning out 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque via a 10-speed automatic transmission. Whichever powertrain you select, your guaranteed confident performance from your F-150.


The way you equip your 2017 Ford F-150 greatly influences how much you’re able to tow. For example, an F-150 pickup with the 5.0L V8, a crew cab setup, and a 4×4 drivetrain has the capacity to tow approximately 8,900 pounds. This figure tops out at 10,800 pounds when properly equipped.
