Which should you buy, 2016 or 2017? Depending on the trim level, 2017. Prices have not gone up on the volume XLT and Lariat models, while increases are modest on other models.

Ford's bread-and-butter F-150 lineup gets a new turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine and new 10-speed automatic transmission for 2017. The EcoBoost V-6 has direct injection and comes with stop-start technology and 375 horsepower, 10 more hp than the previous version. Torque increases by 50 pounds-feet to 470.

The 10-speed automatic is available with the new EcoBoost V-6 on two- and four-wheel-drive models and has a trailer-towing mode. Ford teamed with GM to develop the new transmission. Other F-150 engines still use a six-speed automatic.

Also of note is that the Sync Connect multimedia system, which allows owners to access vehicle functions through a smartphone, is available on XLT and higher trim levels.

Ford upgrades its F-Series lineup on a regular basis, as shown by the introduction of the new twin-turbo V-6 and 10-speed automatic. In addition, Ford has brought back the F-150 Raptor high-performance off-roader for 2017 (starting at $49,520 including destination) and redesigned the F-250/F-350 Super Duty models for 2017.

The half-ton F-150 is the volume leader for the F-Series, which has been the best-selling vehicle line in the U.S. for more than three decades, and Ford hasn't been afraid to tinker with that success. It risked the franchise when it switched the F-150 to an aluminum body for 2015 and also relies heavily on turbocharged V-6 engines in a segment where V-8 engines long have ruled.

The F-150 returns in regular-, extended- and crew-cab body styles and in three cargo box lengths: 5.5, 6.5 and 8 feet. The engine lineup includes a base, naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6; a turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6, two different twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6s; and a 5.0-liter V-8.

Say what you may Ford did not borrow a dime from the taxpayers! Ford did not cost the taxpayers over millions of loss dollars by selling stock low as the government did. Say what you may that GM shared with the transmission share all of them share there ideas

Huh what does the bailout have to do with the 2017 F-150? Are you blaming the bailout for the reason why Ford has had to discount 2015 & (now) 2016 F-150's by between 25 and 30%? All despite the "military grade" aluminum technology supposedly being a game changer that would drive profits sky-high and drive incentives to as close to zero as possible.

I haven't checked lately but has Ford managed to pay off their debt on that taxpayer funded EcoBust yet?

The GT made a name for itself in the 1960s, and the nameplate returned to Ford for the 2005 and 2006 models. Since then, the vehicle has truly evolved into a supercar, evident by it’s $100,000+ price tag.
The company has made some changes to the third-generation GT, prioritizing handling and track capabilities in their 2017 model. The result? Not only one of Ford’s most impressive cars ever, but perhaps one of the most innovative cars to ever be released. For more information about the 2017 Ford GT Release Date checkout.

Cinemabox HD s the one app I would refer to even my parents. The app is simple to use, is comfortable to navigate thogh and is also very efficient at what it does. What it does is very well known.
Not so well known is the fact that the app is free and secure https://www.cinemaboxappdownload.co/cinema-box-for-mac/

Is there any difference in the 2017 super duty bodies and the updated F150 bodies. Or are the bodies becoming interchangeable like the chevy and dodge trucks? They look very similar now. Just curious...
