2011 Ford F-150 Followup – 20% Increase in Fuel Economy?

According to a press release published by Ford today, the four engines available on its upcoming 2011 F-150 pickup should yield 20% gains in fuel economy compared to the same models in 2010.  Since no V6 is available on the 2010 F-150, this is a believable number, especially considering the advanced engine technologies used to craft the new 5.0 and 6.2-liter V8s.  As a recap, the engines available in the 2011 F-150 will be the 3.7-liter V6, 5.0 and 6.2-liter V8s, and later on in the model year, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.  If the 20% number comes true, look for fuel economy numbers to be 14-17 city, 18-24 highway.
