2015 Ford F-150’s EPA Estimates Are Out, Returns Up To 26MPG Topping Gasoline But Not Diesel Rivals

Whichever way you see it, a full-size pickup truck returning up to 26mpg (9,0l/100km) highway is quite impressive.

The fuel economy number corresponds to Ford’s new alloy-bodied 2015 F-150 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine in rear-wheel drive trim (4×2) that also gets EPA-estimated 19 mpg City (12.4 l/100km) and 22 mpg (10.7 l/100km) Combined fuel economy ratings, which Ford says, are the highest of “any full-size gasoline pickup on the market”.

And by that, it means that it beats the previous leader among gasoline-powered pickup trucks, the 2015 Ram 1500 2WD 3.0L V6 that gets an EPA estimated 17mpg city, 25mpg highway and 20mpg combined.

However, Ford’s 2.7 Ecoboost trails the overall leader in the segment, the diesel-powered 2015 Ram 1500 that gets 20mpg city, 28mpg highway and 23mpg combined.

Ford insists, that the F-150 2.7L EcoBoost is a much better value because it has a $495 premium over the standard $25,420 F-150 compared to the $4,470 3.0-liter Ram EcoDiesel option that brings it to $30,215.

You can see the EPA estimatesfor the entire F-150 range in detail in the list compiled by Ford below.
