Ford releases fuel economy ratings of 2015 F-150, will return up to 26 mpg

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 22, 2014

As expected, fuel economy ratings of the 2015 Ford F-150 lineup are the highest of any petrol-powered full-size pickup sold in the United States. For those who don’t know, the 2015 F-150 will be available with four engine choices: the 2.7-liter EcoBoost with standard Auto-Stop, a new 3.5-liter V6 Ti-VCT, a 5.0-liter V8 Ti-VCT as well as the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost.

The 2015 Ford F-150 4X2 model equipped with a 2.7-liter that produces 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque returns 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.

Meanwhile the 2015 Ford F-150 4X2 equipped with the 3.5-liter V6 Ti-VCT with 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque returns 18 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined.

As expected, the 5.0-liter V8 Ti-VCT is the least fuel-efficient engine as it returns 15 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg combined. The V8 engine produces 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque.

The 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that delivers 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, will return 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined.

4x4 models also need more fuel and are not as fuel-efficient as 4x2 versions. The 3.5-liter V6 Ti-VCT returns 17 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg combined, when delivering the power to a 4x4 system.

The 2.7-liter EcoBoost returns 18 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined. The 5.0-liter V8 returns 15 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg combined. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost will return 17 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg combined.
