Ford’s latest F-150 pickup trucks are putting out funny mpg numbers lately, but it is true. One of the engines that is making headway is the new 3.7-liter V6 engine in the 2011 Ford F-150 base model.
With the introduction of the 302-horsepower 3.7-liter engine, Ford has announced its new EPA rated fuel economy numbers for the 2011 Ford F-150 truck, which is making 26 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 miles per gallon in the city. Now that is really good fuel return for a truck of its size, and making it one of the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup on the market.
If you step up to the 360-hp 5.0-liter V8 engine, the fuel economy rating isn’t so much different than the V6 engine either. The 5.0-liter V8 engine is able to provide a 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway EPA fuel economy rating, and that is the highest rating at the moment.
And there are two more optional big engines for the 2011 Ford F-150 if you really need bigger torque and power. The top-of-the-line 6.2-liter V8 engine is rated at 411 horsepower, and can deliver 12 mpg in the city and 17 on the highway. The bigger torque and power allow the 2011 Ford F-150 to handle up to 11,300 pounds of towing capacity and 3,060 pounds of payload.
Which ever engine you choose for your 2011 Ford F-150 truck, it will be the most fuel efficient in the market for its class.
