Ford Releases Fuel Economy Numbers for 2011 Ford F-150: 3.7-liter V6 Gets 23 MPG!

Pending final EPA certification, the 3.7-liter V6 in the upcoming 2011 Ford F-150 will get you a stellar (for a truck, anyway) 23 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg around town.  The 5.0-liter V8 gets you 15/21 city/highway, which rivals its GM counterparts’ fuel economy numbers.  While these numbers are preliminary, they can’t be too far off base or Ford wouldn’t release them.  Click past the jump for complete breakdowns and comparisons.  Truck fans will be especially interested in the Ford-provided charts at the bottom.

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.

2011 Lincoln MKX: EPA Certification

This week, the EPA gave Ford the results from its fuel economy tests on the new 2011 Lincoln MKX, and the numbers are great for a crossover of its size: 19/26 city/highway, with a combined 21 mpg.  That’s for the front-wheel drive (FWD) model, so expect the all-wheel drive (AWD) model to get 17/24 city/highway, and 20 mpg combined.
