2017 Ford F-150 Walk Around

The F-150 presents an angular look with its aluminum body structure, more chiselled than pre-2015 steel models. The bed and cab are made of aluminum panels glued and riveted together and secured to a ladder frame that makes liberal use of high-strength steel. It looks like a modern tool.

Its stylish faired-back rectangular headlights are distinctive and bracket the tall grille. A beveled hood helps send air across the roof.

SuperCab and SuperCrew body styles come with a choice of bed lengths: 5-foot-6, 6-foot-6, or 8-foot. Loading ramps lock into bedsides and a BoxLink system allows dividing cargo.

Interior

This latest-generation F-150 is roomy up front. If you want usable back seats, go for the roomy SuperCrew. Legroom is ample and the recline is satisfying in the back seat of a SuperCrew, but seat cushions are a bit low. Conversely, the rear seats in SuperCabs are tight, best for kids, but they can be flipped up against the back wall, yielding helpful cargo storage space on the flat floor. None of them are set up well for dogs. Regular-cab pickups provide scant space behind the front seats.

In most versions, a wide, deep console sits between the front seats. It’s big enough to hold a laptop. More hard buttons than in past F-Series pickups operate the F-150’s infotainment functions. Controls are designed to be operable with gloves. Platinum models offer genuine wood trim.

Overall, we found the Silverado and Sierra the most comfortable of the full-size pickups. The Ford is comparable to the Nissan and Ram.
