The 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with available 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has been named to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s “Greener Choice” list this year – the only full-size pickup to make the list.
The Ford F-150 4×2 2.7L placed twelfth on the list, with a Green Score of 39 – one point lower than the new Chrysler Pacifica, and just three points below the (mid-size) Chevrolet Colorado Diesel. The Green Score is based on EDX, or the Environmental Damage Index, which estimates the total pollution of the vehicle from vehicle production, fuel production/distribution, and operating emissions.
Ford’s C-MAX Hybrid also made the 2017 Greener Choice list, in seventh place with a Green Score of 53.
The Ford F-150 4×2 with 2.7-liter EcoBoost is rated at 22 combined miles-per-gallon (19 city, 26 highway), which is higher than anything else in its class. It’s also worth noting that the Ford F-150’s 2018 update will bring with it Ford’s new, more-efficient 10-speed automatic transmission, along with a new, dual-injection 2.7L EcoBoost engine with reduced internal friction.
