MEET THE NEW 2017 FORD F-150 PICKUP TRUCK IN CARMAN, MB
You would have to transport yourself decades into the past before you came across a top-rated pickup truck that underwent such a radical transformation as what the Ford F-150 light duty truck has been through. The key word here is light. Since last year, the newly redesigned F-150 has replaced most of its steel construction throughout the vehicle with a military-grade aluminum alloy that has resulted in a weight reduction of just over 700 pounds.
Considering that light duty trucks are used just as often for regular driving as they are for work or hauling, these weight reductions will either result in a greater fuel efficiency for you, or increased capabilities of up to the equivalent amount. The aluminum door panels are also more resistant to scratches, dings, and dents as their predecessors, keeping your ride looking nicer for longer.
There’s a whole lot more to read and get excited about with the new 2017 Ford F-150, now available here at Carman Ford. Come in today to test drive one yourself, and see if you can notice the difference. We carry plenty of new F-150 models in our inventory, including the Lariat, King Ranch, and top-end Platinum trims.
2017 FORD F-150 PERFORMANCE & TOWING
This year, there is a band of four engines vying for glory under the hood of the 2017 Ford F-150. Each operates alongside a 6-speed automatic transmission, and each is available with 4WD to cut through loose dirt, rock, and snow:
- 3.5L Ti-VCT V6: 282hp; 253 lb-ft torque; 7,600 lbs max towing

The new weight reduction has also boosted fuel economy across the line, the leader being the 2.7L EcoBoost, which now attains a leisurely 9.3L/100km on the highway. The V8 engine is also rated to haul a payload up to 3,300 lbs.

Ford’s impressive tech arsenal has found its way comfortably into the new 2017 Ford F-150.
