Ford Releases 2015 F-150 Fuel-Economy Numbers


Ford just announced EPA-estimated fuel economy numbers for all , in both four- and two-wheel drive configurations and the numbers, as expected, are pretty good. Some will note the new F-150 did not beat the Ram EcoDiesel (3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel with an eight-speed transmission), but when compared to other gasoline competitors, the new half-ton offers mpgs comparable to or better than the midsize pickup players, yet offers more than 50 percent more max payload and towing.

To date, the half-ton pickup truck with the best fuel-economy numbers in the industry is the Ram 1500 two-wheel-drive EcoDiesel V-6 with 20/28 mpg city/highway; Ram's 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6 gets 17/25mpg city/highway. Both versions are mated to the eight-speed transmissions. Chevrolet and GMC's half-ton V-6 pickups (two-wheel drive) have EPA ratings of 18/24 mpg city/highway.
