4.6 with 6 speed for best mileage
By prius_driver on
2010 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Just bought this truck to replace my 1998 F250, this one is a big step up with a smooth ride and much better gas mileage. Rated 14/20 city/hwy, but the fine print shows drivers will get 17 to 24 on the highway. Took a 100 mile round trip on Thursday and got 23.0 mpg in mostly highway driving. Pretty good for a truck, and much better than my 1998 F250 that had the 4 spd auto. with 5.4 liter engine, that one got about 17 mpg on the highway for me.
bucket seats, center console for storage
Box is higher than it needs to be, I would rather have a lower box and let those who are carrying loads add sides- this box is two inches deeper than my 1998 F250. Better mileage would be nice- maybe a hybrid option to improve city mileage.
