Popular Mechanics Names Ford Raptor its 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year

If there's one thing to be said about most pickups, it's this: they're useful. Born from pragmatism, pickups can do practically anything you ask. But that's not always what you want. As Popular Mechanics recently pointed out in its 2017 Automotive Excellence Awards, sometimes you just want a truck that the neighbors will pine after. That's why the publication chose the Ford Raptor as its 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year.

The 2017 Ford Raptor takes the standard F-150 pickup and adds a slew of performance and cosmetic features. The result? One of the most exciting trucks you can buy today. Bearing bulging fenders, an aggressive grille, and black wheels, it looks the part. And with its 45-horsepower EcoBoost V6, Torsen front differential, Fox racing Shox, and more, it has the punch to back it up.
