The 2015 F-150 tackles a prime enemy of fuel economy – weight – with a first-in-class aluminum body and high-strength steel frame, which reduces weight by over 700 pounds. Lowering the overall vehicle weight allowed the engineers to use a more fuel-efficient engine, without sacrificing performance. While the 2014 F-150’s 3.5L EcoBoost (turbocharged) V6 delivers 365 horsepower (HP) and 420 pound feet of torque, the 2015 F150 will be available with a smaller 2.7L EcoBoost engine that delivers 320 HP and 370 pound feet of torque. Although fuel economy figures have not been released for the 2015 F-150s, rumours are flying that the 2.7L may be rated as high as 30 MPG highway. The naturally-aspirated 3.7-liter FlexFuel V6 is the most fuel-efficient engine in 2014 F150 lineup, by a 1 MPG margin. The F-150 is built in Dearborn, Michigan and Claycomo, Missouri.

Starting MSRP: $40,600
