2. 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Although we listed the 2017 Ford F-150 series, there’s one model that’s better and badass- the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The Raptor which sells for $50,560 to $53,545 has won the hearts of many truck drivers and enthusiasts, and even the hard-to-please critics. Considered the best pick-up trucks by many online magazines and publications for 2017, the Ford Raptor clearly delivers on different fronts.

The Raptor comes with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that offers 450 horsepower. Efficiency-wise, the Raptor gets 18 miles per gallon for high way driving, and this is considered more efficient than previous models. And for those looking for power, the Raptor clearly delivers as it moves to 60 miles per hour, in just 5.1 seconds. The appeal of the Raptor is not just limited to its performance; its exterior is something to look forward to. It lives up to the name and hype, thanks to the use of a steel backbone and aluminum body. This Ford model comes with high-strength and military-grade aluminum material, but significantly lighter than the previous models.

Also, the Raptor gets its edge over other Ford trucks in its industrial-strength suspension and ample ground clearance. It comes with the adjustable 3.0-inch Fox Racing Shox, which is a great help for drivers who want to explore the outdoors. Finally, it comes with a six mode ‘Terrain Management System’, which gives flexibility to drivers when it comes to navigating different kinds of terrains.
