Ford F-150 Engines to Deliver More Highway Fuel Economy

November 02, 2010

DEARBORN, MI - Pending EPA certification, the 2011 Ford F-150's all-new 3.7L V-6 and 5.0L V-8 engines are projected to deliver best-in-class 23 mpg highway and 21 mpg highway, according to the automaker.

The new 3.7L V-6 is projected to deliver 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway in 4x2 configuration. The new 5.0L V-8 is projected to deliver 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway in 4x2 configuration.

"Seventy percent of F-150 customers said better fuel economy is what they'd like improved most in their truck," said Doug Scott, Truck Group marketing manager. "The 2011 Ford F-150 does exactly that with best-in-class fuel economy, best-in-class capability and power, and more powertrain choices to suit their different needs."

The new V-6 and V-8 make up half of an all-new powertrain lineup for the 2011 Ford F-150, part of the most extensive engine makeover in the 62-year history of F-Series. Also new for 2011 are the 6.2L V-8 and 3.5L EcoBoost truck engine. The EcoBoost will be available in early 2011. Trucks with the 3.7L V-6, 5.0L V-8 and 6.2L V-8 will arrive in dealer showrooms later this year, according to Ford.

Each engine is mated to a fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission.
