Thumbs up MPG Numbers Released!

In addition to best-in-class towing and payload, Ford can also add best 1/2-ton pickup fuel economy to its trophy case, because the 2018 F-150 Power Stroke diesel has been rated at a max of 22 city/30 highway/25 combined mpg (presumably with two-wheel drive). That EPA-estimated fuel efficiency is not only tops in the fullsize pickup class, it also matches the efficiency ratings of the midsize Chevrolet Colorado

If these figures end up holding true with real world testing, that means the F150 Diesel actually gets better highway mileage than the Ecosport, which is rated to 29mpg. It looks like mating the Power Stroke diesel to a 10 speed tranny was a worthwhile investment.

Generally, real world numbers are around 2 mpg less than the manufacturer provided EPA, but even at 20 mpg city, that's still outstanding for a full-sized pickup.

If they don't respond to GM's move to carbon fiber beds then it will set them back even more.
GM was smart in using the least vulnerable area of a pick up for carbon fiber.

Also if anyone doesn't feel like searching a 4x4 crew cab with 6.5' bed and 3:55 gears gets an EPA of 20 city, 25 highway, and 22 combined according to my window sticker.
