Every year, the North American International Auto Show in Detroit recognizes the top vehicles for that year. These awards are given out to many different styles of cars, including pickup trucks. At the auto show, Cars.com gave out the award for the Best Pickup of 2017 to the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, and deservedly so. Rio Rancho area shoppers can expect everything from top performance to great design when they get behind the wheel of the award winning 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.
This award isn’t just given out to any pickup truck, it takes a lot to be named Cars.com’s Best Pickup. After the judges have narrowed the finalist down to a field of six pickups, they looked at which pickups had significant upgrades and all new features. Not only that, but the judges had time to drive each of the finalists to make sure their handling and drive is as smooth as their looks. According to the judges, the 2017 Raptor is a well-rounded, quality vehicle.
