The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is America's number one pickup truck and it recently proved itself once again by winning the "Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of The Year Award". Clearly, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is not yet ready to step down as America's favorite truck.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: The Truck Of The Year Award

According to report, the "Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year" is an annual invitational event participated by several pickup trucks in the segment. The competition consists of the competing trucks being subjected to different kinds of tests that ultimately measure their capabilities. Among those that competed in the abovementioned competition are the 2017 models of Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, Ram 2500 Off Road Package, Ram Power Wagon, Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X, Nissan Titan Pro-4X, Ford F-150 Raptor and Ford F250 Super Duty FX4.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: Achieving Second Pickup Truck Of The Year Award

Apparently, this is not the first time that the 2017 Ford F-150 received the "Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year" award. It was reported that the Ford F-150 Raptor was also able to get this prestigious award in 2011. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor was able to earn its second award thanks to its combined capabilities in both on-road and off-road. "The truck is equivalent of an amusement park thrill ride. With horsepower and torque numbers far exceeding the previous generation Raptor, the engine is a willing participant in the Raptor experience. Combine all of this in a truck that is lighter than its predecessor, with increased wheel travel, and you're rewarded with exactly that: and experience," said Ken Brubaker, editor for FOUR WHEELER in a report.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: What's Next?

Given how the 2017 Ford F-150 conquered the annual "Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year" event by earning its top award, the future looks definitely bright for the Ford F-150 Raptor. Following its delays in deliveries late last year, earning the title will definitely put the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor in the spotlight as it sets to conquer the market for another year.
