Ford announced today that its 2017 F-150 truck was given the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) Greener Choice award, the only full-size truck in the council’s Greener Choices list.
The aluminum F-150 4×2 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and equipped with stop/start technology earned an ACEEE Green Score of 39, which placed it 12th overall in the Greener Choices for 2017. The truck meets LEV-III ULEV70/Tier 2 Bin 4 on unleaded gasoline and was rated by the EPA at 19 MPG city, 26 MPG highway and 22 MPG combined, all best-in-class gas fuel economy ratings.
ACEEE’s Greener Choices list reviews top widely available petroleum-fueled vehicles with automatic transmissions and identifies practical options in each vehicle class.
Ford continues to innovate with a variety of powertrain and fuel saving options, including the first-ever 10-speed automatic transmission on a production truck, and standard stop/start technologies to improve fuel economy.
Ford F-Series trucks have been the best-selling pickups in the U.S. for 40 consecutive years and the nation’s best-selling vehicle for the past 35 years.
