The 2016 Ford F-150 with 2.7L EcoBoost V-6 engine has been named winner of PickupTrucks.com’s Texas Truck Showdown Max MPG fuel economy challenge.

Ford F-150 competed with four other competitors, including Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3L V-8 and Ram 1500 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6.

“In the end, we were impressed with the F-150 for its capability, fuel efficiency and composure when pushed hard, said Mark Williams, editor of PickupTrucks.com. “For a small V-6 engine, it’s very impressive how well it almost eliminates the typical compromises half-ton customers have become accustomed to.”

When equipped with the available 2.7L EcoBoost with standard Auto Start-Stop, F-150 4x2 has EPA-estimated gasoline fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway/22 mpg combined.

The engine produces 325 hp and 375 lb.-ft. of torque with a maximum payload rating of 2,250 pounds and maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds – ideal for meeting mid-range capability requirements, and the needs of more than 90 percent of light-duty truck customers.
