Best Used Full-Size 2017 Truck: Facts, Recalls, Current Price Ranges, and More
In spite of 2023 trucks starting to load up at dealerships after three years of constipated production, used pickup trucks continue to maintain their values into 2023. And while used trucks can present problems as they age, there are many with lower miles that will serve buyers for years to come. So we zeroed in on 2017 full-size pickups to see how they rated when new, how they perform used, and high to low price ranges on May `1, 2023.
What were the full-size trucks for 2017?
The five full-size trucks for 2017 were the Toyota Tundra, Nissan Titan, Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500, and Ford F-150. When new, it was a tossup between consumer sites with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 scoring with Edmunds and U.S. News, while the F-150 was at the top with Kelley Blue Book and JD Power. As JD Power also has a category for heavy-duty trucks, the Silverado HD won this segment.
The Ram 1500 was in its ninth year of the fourth generation. Its 3.0-liter Ecodiesel was dropped midyear due to emissions but returned in 2018. Ram Laramie Longhorns and Limiteds got updates, along with changes to the U-Connect infotainment system.
What were the 2017 Ford F-150 engine options?
The Ford F-150 was two years into its 13th generation. The big news was the introduction of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with the new 10-speed transmission. You could still get the 2.7-liter EcoBoost and 5.0-liter V8.
Toyota’s Tundra pickup was in the middle of its 2014 to 2021 truck. The 2016 Tundra saw a gang of updates from its 2014 models, so Toyota slid through 2017 with no changes. Safety and trailer assists were part of all models. And the 5.7-liter and 4.6-liter V8s continued to be available.
Did the 2017 Nissan Titan offer a diesel engine?
For the Nissan Titan, 2016 was also a major refresh, the first since 2003, so 2017 stayed the same. Two engines were available, including the 5.6-liter V8 and 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8. There were still three different bodies, a two-door regular cab, a four-door King Cab, and a four-door crew cab.
Chevrolet’s Silverado 1500 was in its second year of a 2016 refresh. New safety and trailering packages were the big news. The MyLink infotainment system was also upgraded.

Ford F-150: 15 recalls
Chevrolet Silverado: 6 recalls
Ram 1500: 11 recalls
