2015 Ford F-150: Fuel Economy Update for June - Long Highway Miles Nudge Average Lifetime MPG
July 16, 2015
Since our 2015 Ford F-150 was used in the Great Yugoslav Expedition of 2015, the majority of the 3,200 miles we added in June came from driving round-trip from Los Angeles to Boise. And whaddya know? That number of miles driven on rural highways at a steady speed increased its lifetime fuel economy. Was it enough to get the F-150 up to its EPA estimated 20 mpg combined?
Oh, hell no. It squeaked up to 16.0 mpg lifetime from 15.7 mpg. As a reminder, the EPA city rating is 18 mpg. So the 2.7-liter V6 remains far more Boost than Eco, I'm afraid.
On the upside, we did manage to achieve the best range thus far of 591.1 miles, so there's that. Well done, Team Yugo.
