Ford F-150 XL, Phoenix, AZ
With its class-exclusive aluminum body and turbocharged EcoBoost engines, the F-150 XL has advanced full-size pickup design well beyond what its competitors are doing. The EcoBoost V6 and new 10-speed transmission deliver plenty of power for towing and hauling as well as respectable fuel economy.
There are four engine choices for the 2017 Ford F-150: one normally aspirated V6 (282 horsepower @ 6,250 rpm), a twin-turbo V6s (325 horsepower @ 5,750 rpm) and a traditional V8 (385 horsepower @ 5,750 rpm All Three engines use a 6-speed automatic transmission. The improved 3.5-liter EcoBoost gets an all-new 10-speed automatic. Ford offers customers the option of 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive (2WD, 4WD).
