You ever wonder what the best-selling pickup in America is? It's the rough-and-tough Ford F-Series. The accomplished F-150 is the most popular of the lineup, and we have five reasons you'll take the 2017 Ford F-150 over anything else.

Endless Engine Choices

Ford was very generous in the engine department, as they gave the F-150 four engine choices -- yes, four. All are solid and capable, but the 375-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost stands out. It has better efficiency, and it's now paired with a 10-speed transmission that enhances performance and acceleration. But regardless, the choices Ford offers have good range.

SYNC Interface

Inside the F-150, there's a standard 4.2-inch screen with Ford's interface, SYNC, but we strongly recommend upgrading to the SYNC 3 system. It really is worth the extra bucks. You'll also want to opt for the SYNC Connect feature, which pairs with a downloadable app called FordPass. From there, you can check and see if your doors are locked, or even check the fuel level, all from your compatible smartphone.

Light and Strong

When they say "Built Ford Tough," they mean it. The body is made from a high-strength aluminum alloy. The best part is that it's light -- as a matter of fact, the lightest in its class. Lighter and stronger can be a lethal combination for a pickup truck. Bottom line is the F-150 gives a whole new definition to the term "Lean and Mean".

Clever Capability

This truck has some pretty smart capability. The standard trailer sway control can really be helpful, especially if you tow often. The F-150 also offers some great upgrades, and options that seem to go on and on. These include everything from available adaptive cruise control to innovative safety features like forward-collision alert and Curve Control, which assists if you're going too fast into a turn. There's even an optional 360-degree camera, which is really a big help in the many things a full-size pickup can do.

Ready for Any Road

Plan on using this truck as your everyday vehicle? Well, as far as an all-around drive, the F-150 really shines. Both the front and rear seats are very comfortable, even on a longer road trip. The handling and brakes keep you confident on any drive. Of course, off the road, the F-150 is up for almost any task, especially if you go for the Raptor trim level, which is specially made for top off-road performance.

Autotrader Says

There's no question the Ford F-150 has been really good for a really long time. The best part is it's showing no signs of slowing down. Get into a 2017 Ford F-150 and see why it will continue to remain America's favorite pickup.
