The 2017 10best awards from Car and Driver are in, and the Best Full-Size Pickup is the Ford F-150/F-150 Raptor. This comes as no surprise to us here at our Albuquerque Ford dealer, given that the Ford F-150 is America’s best-selling truck. If there’s one thing America knows, it’s quality. In 2017, the brand has created what they’re calling the “toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever made.” Not only does it offer a more powerful engine than previous year models, but it also features a retuned transmission with closer gear ratios and patented hydraulic controls.

Vehicles considered for Car and Driver’s 10best award are judged on extremely strict criteria. The decision to include a vehicle on this list comes only after extensive evaluation of criteria such as performance, value, engagement, sights, sounds, soul, and character. Judges explore these cars, drive them, travel to the factories where they are made, and speak with those making them. Winning this award in 2017 is truly an honor for the Ford Motor Company and the F-150.

The F-150 Raptor has also been upgraded in the new year; it is now lighter and more powerful, but it’s still the only high performance off-road production truck in existence. This stunningly powerful machine drives as smoothly as ever and is capable of mowing over just about anything in sight. When you need a vehicle to take out into the desert outside Albuquerque, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is the pickup you’re looking for.

With a 3.5L EcoBoost under the hood, and two transmission options, the 2017 Raptor is a force to be reckoned with. Those who opt for the 10-speed automatic transmission will be pleased to discover a remarkably smooth and efficient ride, while those who would rather have stick shift will feel more connected to their vehicle than ever before. You can’t go wrong behind the wheel of this vehicle, but don’t take it from us, take it from Car and Driver’s 10best list.
