EPA Names F-150 and Ranger with 3.7L V6 Most Fuel Efficient in Segment

Ford has announced that the EPA has named the Ford F-150 V6 and Ranger V6 pickups as the most fuel efficient in their class. The EPA cited the 3.7L V6 that is in use in the F-150 and the Ranger as the more fuel efficient non-hybrid full size pickup for the F-150 with a combined city and highway rating of 19mpg. The Ranger led its compact truck segment with a rating of 24mpg.

“The No. 1 unmet need for full-size pickup truck owners has been fuel economy. With the recent hike in gas prices, this need is even stronger,” said Doug Scott, Truck Group marketing manager. “The good news is the 2011 Ford F-150 has best-in-class fuel economy, best-in-class capability and power, and more powertrain choices to suit customers different needs.”

The fuel efficiency means that consumers and businesses can save at the pumps. The fuel savings for a company operating fleets of trucks could be significant with these fuel sipping engines. The Ford trucks are considerably more fuel efficient than their competitors on the market.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” said Scott. “Similar to the rest of the Ford F-Series lineup, the 2011 Ford F-150 with the 3.7-liter V6 is the ‘and’ solution, providing best-in-class capability, performance and fuel economy. Competitive full-size pickups force consumers to sacrifice one need for another. To gain better fuel economy, for example, they have to give up performance, capability and/or affordability.

Chevrolet’s hybrid matches the 23 mpg on the highway from our 3.7-liter V6, but the Chevy hybrid’s suggested retail price is nearly $16,000 more than ours.”

That last bit is impressive; you get the same fuel economy as the Chevy hybrid and save $16,000. That is enough for a second vehicle. Ford also took time to tout its new F-150 with the EcoBoost turbo 3.5 for the Taurus SHO. The engine makes 365hp and sill gets 22mpg on the highway and 16 in the city. That EcoBoost engine has 420 lb-ft of torque giving the F-150 an 11,300-pound towing capacity.

“The 3.5-liter EcoBoost truck engine is a shining example of the uncompromising nature of Ford’s EcoBoost technology: more power and better fuel economy,” said Scott. “What’s important for truck customers is that this all-new engine delivers best-in-class capability where it matters most: towing and hauling. Now they’re getting great fuel economy, too.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
