Ford is all set to put a smile on your faces, with the new and game changing F-150 pickup truck. Made of aluminium based alloy, it is extremely durable and can be used for military purposes as well. But the striking feature that caught everybody’s attention is its gas efficiency. The 3.7L ecoboost deserves a standing ovation for a huge truck like this. Ford is making trucks of the future indeed as it can carry lots of weight over long distances and costs you cheaper. F-150 of 2014 is 20% more efficient it terms of fuel usage than the previous towing models of F-150.
Though it is being compared with tow trucks from Ram, which are more efficient that Ford’s F-150. The ecoboost V-6 engine has twin turbo gives about 25mpg. Also the new 2014 model is 700 pounds lighter than the old model and the body is made of aluminium, which is definitely lighter. According to some, the aluminium body is not that appealing unless it is coupled with the reduction of the weight. The reduction of approximately 700 pounds will certainly mean that the 2015 Ford F-150 will issue a much better mileage.
In addition, most of the experts are pretty impressed with the tow rating and the maximum payload of the 2015 Ford F-150, which is 12,200 and 3,300 respectively. Ford mentioned that, ‘Specially designed components such as the variable-displacement oil pump and light-yet-strong connecting rods contribute to power and efficiency.’
Auto start-stop is another feature that makes this engine more fuel efficient. The truck stops the engine automatically when you apply brakes to stop the vehicle and restarts it when the brakes are released. Ford’s very own twin turbochargers enrich the engine by pumping more air to it. This increases the supply of on-demand power.
Top grade pickup trucks cannot provide this level of gas efficiency. Ford has the highest estimated fuel economy for pickups. Opt for this well-constructed, designed truck for all your towing needs. Ford is continually giving you the best of the best in terms of fuel efficiency. Starting from 2011, the numbers of F-150 are increasing, making it more gas efficient with every revision. The ratings of F-150 2014 are best among the previous models.
