The 2016 Ford F-150 has been named the “Best Light-Duty Truck for MPG 2016” by PickupTrucks.com, confirming what most pickup truck owners already knew.
Though “MPG” is in the title of the challenge, PickupTrucks.com took more than just fuel efficiency into consideration for this competition, which pitted the Ford F-150, Toyota Tundra, Ram 1500, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 against each other.
When equipped with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, the Ford F-150 simply outshined every other truck in the head-to-head challenge. It provided the best combination of power and fuel economy, and every editor had nothing but compliments for it.
“In the end, we were impressed with the F-150 for its capability, fuel efficiency and composure when pushed hard,” said Mark Williams, PickupTrucks.com editor. “For a small V6 engine, it’s very impressive how well it almost eliminates the typical compromises half-ton customers have become accustomed to.”
Thanks to standard Auto Start-Stop technology, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 also offers best-in-class EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. Schedule a test drive today and see for yourself just how good it feels to drive at Bob Sight Ford!
