2015 Ford F-150: Fuel Economy Update for January

February 5, 2015

2015 Ford F-150

New year. New truck.

Fresh from our New Year's Day off we bought this $52,000 2015 Ford F-150. Then we hit it with a sledgehammer and had it repaired.

It was at the body shop for seven days.

When it wasn't we managed to drive the aluminum-bodied pickup, which is powered by a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, about 1,000 miles before the calendar clicked over to February.  

So far the Ford's fuel economy hasn't lived up to the EPA's  combined rating of 20 mpg, but that's to be expected this early in its life.

We are impressed with the F-150's range, however. Over 500 miles per tank should be easy once the turbocharged V6 is broken in.

Stay tuned.

Worst Fill MPG: 14.0 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 16.6 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.1 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 435.5 miles
Current Odometer: 1,015 miles
