The Ford Atlas is a pickup truck that has been developed from the popular Ford F150. Most people do not see any difference between the two vehicles. It is only Ford truck enthusiasts who can identify the differences. The American vehicle manufacturer will be releasing a new pickup truck, 2017 Ford Atlas, that is expected to come with better features in all areas.
2017 Ford Atlas – Latest info:
According to Ford, the new 2017 Ford Atlas will be lighter than the outgoing model. The weight reduction will be attributed to the use of aluminum and lightweight materials. Like most Ford trucks, both ends of the new car will look aggressive while sides will appear muscular.
A prominent rectangular grille, two lines of headlights and a curved bumper will give the front side of 2017 Ford Atlas an aggressive appearance. Other features that will contribute to this kind of appearance include active grille shutters and adjustable air dams. Your love for the pickup will increase when you come across chrome-plated doors. The only highlights in the rear side are revised exhaust outlets and elegant taillights.
The cabin of the pickup will leave you stunned with its blue LED lighting. Most of the interior components will be in blue color. Other colors include black and gray. We expect seats and steering wheel to be upholstered in leather. As for the cabin space, we are looking forward to a roomier interior.
What’s more? There will be a well-equipped dashboard in the interior of 2017 Ford Atlas. Wait to see a large touchscreen and other driver assistance features on the center console. Passengers will have their own screens fixed at the backside of the front seats. Additional exterior features include air conditioners, a powerful audio system, GPS and a variety of connection options.
