Motor Trend wasn’t keen on waiting any longer to figure out the numbers for the 2015 Ford F-150 fuel economy. They brought in their own team of emissions expert to test the new 2.7L EcoBoost V-6 in the truck. How did it do? Really well.
The 2015 Ford F-150 fuel economy is expected to be highest with the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine and has become the most talked about new powertrains on the market. Is it powerful enough? Is the fuel economy that much better? Will truck consumers buy a truck with that small of an engine? All of these questions and more surround this innovative powertrain.
Motor Trend conducted their own 2015 Ford F-150 fuel economy testing of the 325 hp, 375 lb-ft 2.7L engine and found it gets 16.6/21.5/18.5 city/highway/combined in their real MPG tests. This is better than a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the 5.3L at 13/19/15 mpg with slightly higher power figures. It falls short of the more expensive 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel which scored 18.6/25.8/21.2 mpg.
