Why settle for good when you can go home with great? Come by Sound ford in Seattle, Washington and drive off the lot with a new or used Ford F-150. The 2017 F-150, a towing powerhouse with an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission, recently took home Gold Hitch awards from The Fast Lane Truck, an online magazine for truck enthusiasts.
The awards acknowledge trucks that excel in high-altitude towing and performance testing, conquering the roads in Colorado and Utah to best other competitors in what The Fast Lane Truck calls the "world's toughest towing contest." Trucks of all shapes and sizes contest for the prizes, but the 2017 F-150 came out on top thanks to its top-of-the-line technologies and towing capabilities. The truck's second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 also gave it an edge, while tow/haul mode and trailer braking made descending down steep grades a breeze.
"The 2017 Ford F-150 is the best towing half-ton truck this year,” Andre Smirnov, an editor for TFLtruck.com, said, adding that its features "elevated the F-150 above all others.”
