What are Some of the Best Trucks for Towing?
Capability is key for a great truck. While they can still offer us immense power, great safety features and the newest technologies, a truck still needs to get the job done. The Fast Lane Truck, an online magazine for truck enthusiasts, recently handed out their Gold Hitch and Truck of the Year awards. So what did they find to be some of the best trucks for towing?
Awards won by the 2017 Ford F-150
The 2017 Ford F-150 and the F-150 Raptor were awarded three of the five total Gold Hitch awards from The Fast Lane Truck. The Gold Hitch awards are seen as one of the world’s most difficult towing competitions, due to the awards being based on high-altitude towing and performance tests being done in Colorado and Utah. The online publication also crowned the 2017 F-150 as their Truck of the Year.
“The 2017 Ford F-150 is the best towing half-ton truck this year. The overall versatility, towing performance, and choice of available powertrains and technology features of the entire 2017 F-150 lineup elevated the F-150 above all others.”

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor also earned The Fast Lane Gold Hitch award for off-road trucks by outperforming four other trucks in its class. The F-150 Raptor combines its off-road abilities with the power and speed found in all F-150 models.
