Third time's a charm for Ford, but so are the second and first times. For the third year running, Ford Motor Company has taken the Kelley Blue Book KBB.com "Best Buy" of the year for trucks award. The award specifically spotlights the 2017 Ford F-150, which stole the show with its updated features.
The Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards serve to identify and share the best of the best when it comes to all available 2017 model-year vehicles; the awards are given after a yearlong vetting process that includes expert vehicle evaluation and testing - not just of a select number of vehicles available in the US, but of almost every new vehicle. The respected designation also takes into account a large pool of vehicle-related data, such as vehicle pricing and transaction prices, which is used to analyze and compare each vehicle. This year, the 2017 Ford-F150 scored highly across the judging categories, dazzling with its updated powertrain lineup that introduced the all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost and 10-speed automatic (which is Ford-built). That's not all; the powertrain also provides an increase of 50 lb-ft peak torque and shows improvements in the trifecta of EPA fuel economy ratings of 1 mpg more than its predecessor.

The 2017 F-150 also brings back the STX Appearance Package, which bundles a variety of interior and exterior features that F-150 drivers previously had limited access to. The updated features, in turn, give customers even more bang for their buck. Drivers can also enjoy heightened convenience and comfort using features such as BLIS with cross-traffic alerts for trailer coverage, SYNC Connect for remote vehicle security, and the FordPass smartphone platform for monitoring fuel levels from afar.
