Ford’s New Aluminum-Bodied F-150 Truck More Gas Efficient

Mike Ramsey

 Ford Motor Co. said its aluminum-bodied F-150 pickup mated with a new 2.7-liter, turbocharged V6 can achieve 22 mpg overall and 26 mpg on the highway, the best of any gasoline-fueled, full-size pickup available.

Ford revealed the EPA label ratings for the F-150 at an event in Dearborn, Mich. Friday. There are multiple variations of the truck, depending on engine, cab configuration and whether the truck is 2- or 4-wheel-drive. Each change creates a different fuel economy figure.

Overall, the trucks achieve between 5% and 29% better fuel economy compared with the current model.
