  • When equipped with available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine, new F-150 4×2 has EPA-estimated 19 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway and 22 mpg Combined fuel economy ratings
  • 2015 F-150 can tow as much as 1,110 pounds more, haul as much as 530 pounds more, has a 5 percent to 16 percent better power-to-weight ratio and new F-150 EPA fuel economy ratings are 5 to 29 percent better than current models, depending on engine

Ford advances to the next level in providing customers with more fuel-efficient vehicles, as the new 2015 F-150 lineup includes the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any gasoline-powered full-size pickup sold in America.

Up to 700 pounds lighter than current models, the new F-150 4×2 with Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine has EPA-estimated ratings of 19 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway and 22 mpg Combined. That is 5 percent to 29 percent better than current F-150 models, depending on engine and driveline configuration on the combined cycle.

“We set out to create the future of tough with the new F-150,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, 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 improved performance is enabled by saving weight through the use of high-strength steel and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys plus smart engineering. The weight savings not only improve fuel efficiency, they improve the new F-150’s capability and performance. Combined with EcoBoost engine technology, the F-150 now tows as much as 1,100 more pounds and hauls as much as 530 pounds more than today’s model with a 5 percent to 16 percent better power-to-weight ratio.

Ford is producing trucks and now has started shipping the all-new pickups to its dealers.

Delivering Ford’s Blueprint for Sustainability

The F-150’s fuel economy leadership pays off two key elements of Ford’s Blueprint for Sustainability – making high volumes of internal combustion engines as efficient as possible through EcoBoost technology and achieving substantial vehicle weight savings.

Introduced in 2007, the Blueprint is a plan of near-, mid- and long-term product and technology actions that incorporate fuel-saving technologies into the company’s vehicles, while continuing development of breakthrough technologies.

Today, Ford has 2 million EcoBoost engines on the road in cars, utilities and trucks.

EcoBoost technology was first offered for F-150 customers in early 2011 with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. To date, Ford has sold 600,000 F-150 trucks equipped with 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines, helping Ford customers save an estimated 68 million gallons of gasoline.
