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

Article by Christian A., 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.

Ford launched the new F-150, reinventing America's favourite pickup truck. It is the sturdiest, smartest, and most able F-150, setting new standards for future trucks.

The new F-150 provides an inspiring blend of power, ability, and effectiveness, from high-tech materials that improve sturdiness and prevent corrosion to quicker processors that improve drive performance to innovative cargo management and hauling solutions.

The F-150 is famous for being Built Ford Tough. Now, it is not just tough; it is smart. The new F-150 resets the future of pickups, and it is still one more example of the One Ford strategy of manufacturing vehicles that serve customers with dedication to the highest quality, fuel economy, safety, intelligent design and value.

F-150 is part of Ford’s F-Series truck line-up. It has been America's best-selling pickup truck for 37 years in a row and America's best-selling automobile for 32 years.

Ford has a unique relationship with its customers. Over and over, the F-150 has produced the sturdier, more intelligent features customers want as well as the abilities for work or for play. Ford builds its trucks to their customers’ high standards.

In conceiving the F-150 backbone, Ford’s engineers bettered the truck's iconic fully boxed ladder frame. It is completely new with more high-strength steel than before so that it is stronger and more lightweight.

High-strength, military-grade, aluminium alloys, found in aerospace, commercial transport, energy, and other demanding industries, are used for the first time all the way through the F-150’s body, improving resistance to dents and dings and saving on weight. In total, there’s a savings of almost 700 pounds, helping the F-150 tow and haul more, accelerate faster, and stop shorter. All of these contribute to its efficiency.

More than before, customers want a pickup that they can rely on like a partner, as well as a mobile office and workshop. To meet these needs, Ford created new, intelligent features and a fully new method to using high-tech materials and engines for improved ability and effectiveness.
