2017 Ford Atlas Release Date, News
If you have seen Ford F 150, then you have a clue of how 2017 Ford Atlas will look like. This upcoming pickup truck will be just a redesigned model of the existing popular truck. You can expect a pickup with a body made of aluminum and high strength steel. The car will come with a fine-tuned exterior, interior and powertrain.
2017 Ford Atlas – Body Style Changes:
We are looking forward to a pickup truck with active aerodynamics. These features will improve speed and fuel efficiency. The new 2017 Ford Atlas will be lighter than the outgoing F-150. This is mainly due to extensive use of aluminum in the construction. Expect the car to have a more muscular body and a more aggressive front.
Front side of 2017 Ford Atlas truck will draw more attention with a prominent rectangular grille, curved bumper lines and double layer headlights. The pickup will also come with adjustable air dams and active grille shutters. Doors will be covered with chrome, something which will significantly improve the truck’s charm. Looking the pickup from the rear side, you will see elegant tail lights, cargo ramps, a spacious bed and redesigned exhaust tips. Large wheels will be available to take care of the tough duties of the pickup truck.
Interior of 2017 Ford Atlas will welcome you with stunning blue LED lightning. More colors have been added in the cabin. Blue will be the dominant color, with black and gray featuring in a few components. We expect the cabin to be more spacious, and fitted with leather upholstered seats.
If you are planning to own the new Ford pickup truck, be ready to access a well-equipped dashboard. A large touchscreen display accompanied by a host of controls will be available on this part of the cabin. Ford will also install other screens at the backside of front seats to ensure your passengers are kept entertained. Other interior features we are anticipating for include: air conditioners, GPS, cup holders, a powerful audio system and a variety of web link choices.
You will not worry a lot about safety when driving 2017 Ford Atlas as it has been equipped with safety and security features such as blind spot monitors, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping system.
2017 Ford Atlas – Engine Offerings:
We expect a 3.5 liter V6 engine to feature under the hood of the new Ford pickup truck. This is a powerful engine with a capacity of 360 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. It will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission system. We are also looking forward to more engine options if rumors going around are true.
The pickup will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.1 seconds or less. There will be a notable improvement in fuel economy, so expect to spend less in fueling the car. The car will record 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
