The only thing more anticipated than the arrival of the 2015 Ford F-150 on dealerships lots later this winter was the trucks’ fuel economy ratings. One of those waits came to an end Friday.
Up to 700 pounds lighter than current models, the new F-150 4×2 with Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine has EPA-estimated ratings of 19 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway and 22 mpg combined – a 5 percent to 29 percent better than current F-150 models, depending on engine and driveline configuration on the combined cycle.
The new 2015 F-150 lineup includes the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any gasoline-powered full-size pickup sold in America
“We set out to create the future of tough with the new F-150,” says Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “We are delivering with the toughest, smartest and most capable F-150 ever – and now the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any full-size gas-powered pickup in America.”
The all-new standard 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 offers EPA-estimated ratings of 18 mpg City, 25 mpg Highway and 20 mpg combined for 4×2 models.
The 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8, in the 4×2 configuration, has EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 15 mpg City, 22 mpg Highway and 18 mpg combined.
The available 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine provides EPA-estimated ratings of 17 mpg City, 24 mpg Highway and 20 mpg combined for 4×2 models.
