Ford F-150 Fuel Economy Numbers Are Out

Ford F-150 Fuel Economy Numbers Are Out

Describing the model as smarter and more capable than its predecessor, the automaker confirmed the facelifted truck will have a best-in-class fuel economy rating when equipped with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine which develops 325 hp (242 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque.

The second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine produces 325 hp and 400 lb-ft, the same horsepower as before but up 25 lb-ft from past year. Helping produce better efficiency ratings for both the 2.7-liter EcoBoost and the 5.0-liter V8 is Ford's new SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission, which is being mated with both engines for the 2018 model year. At 17 city/23 highway/19 combined mpg, the 4x2 makes better efficiency numbers than even the fuel-sipping Chevy Silverado 1500. The V8 engine gets upgrades, like dual port and direct-injection that gives it 10 more horsepower and an additional 13 lb. -ft. of torque. It also achieves a 5 percent power-to-weight ratio improvement versus the 2014 F-150 featuring a steel body and 3.7-liter V-6 engine. Four-wheel-drive versions net 19/24/21 mpg, an increase of 1 mpg combined. Despite this, the engine is relatively frugal as rear-wheel drive variants have an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway / 21 mpg combined. Detailed today, the updated F-150 can credit Ford's second-generation EcoBoost engine for the economy improvement. 4×4 models are 1 mpg better all around with an EPA-estimated 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway/18 mpg combined.

The base 3.3-liter V6 gained 8 horsepower to total 290, as well as 12 pound-feet of torque to reach 265. The F-150 4x4's 16/22/18 mpg are similarly class-leading compared to other V-8 pickups.

Diet Drinks Fool Your Body's Metabolism
Another reason is that they come with the promise of zero calories, making them quite attractive to weight loss fanatics. Diet drinks and meals could cause people to put on weight and trigger diabetes even when they are low-calorie.

A high-output version of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 comes in the F-150 Raptor off-road performance truck with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Only the 3.3-liter V6 is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.

However, Ram also offers a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 with 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.

We're still waiting on final specs for the all-new 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6. Power and fuel economy figures have not been released.
