The Blue Oval company claims that EcoBoost-powered F-150s helped customers save an estimated 45 million gallons of gas annually, which exceeds “the estimated fuel savings of all Toyota and Tesla plug-in electrified vehicles sold in the US through October.

The Ford F-150 EcoBoost is motivated by a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is estimated at 16 city / 22 highway / 18 combined mpg on 4x2 models and 15/21/17 mpg on 4x4 versions.

“Ford is delivering great fuel economy across our lineup, from EcoBoost in our F-150 and 15 other vehicles to our electrified vehicles,” says Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Fuel economy is the No. 1 unmet need for truck customers, which is why the F-150 EcoBoost’s leading combination of fuel economy and capability is resonating so well.”
