The 2015 Ford F-150 is known for being the best F-150 to ever roll off the assembly line. With an aluminum body and a brand-new design, Ford’s popular pickup truck is racking up awards both left and right, while establishing itself as the best pickup in its segment. Now, Ford has confirmed the F-150 is the best yet again by releasing 2015 F-150 fuel economy ratings.
With a weight reduction of 700 lbs from previous models, the new F-150 has an EPA estimated ratings of 22 mpg combined when equipped with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine. This is a significant increase of 5% to 29% in fuel economy compared to current F-150 models.
“We set out to create the future of tough with the new F-150,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development. “We are delivering with the toughest, smartest, and most capable F-150 ever—and now the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any full-size gas-powered pickup in America.”
The F-150 combines high-strength steel and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys to reduce weight, while increasing capability. While it has increased its fuel efficiency ratings, the F-150 has also increased its towing capability by 1,100 lbs and hauling capabilities by 530 lbs.
