2017 Ford F-150 3.5L EcoBoost Achieves Up To 25 MPG

Thanks to a new, second-generation EcoBoost engine and the first-ever production 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with 3.5-liter EcoBoost is quantifiably more fuel-efficient than the 2016 model-year truck.

Ford today broke down the results from the EPA’s fuel economy testing of the revised Ford F-150, which show a 1 mile-per-gallon improvement to highway, city, and combined driving on a 2017 4×2 model. The 4×4 tested 1 mpg higher than last year’s truck in highway and city driving, too, with a 2 mpg improvement in the combined category. (Reported numbers are rounded, which might account for the discrepancy.)

The reported numbers for the 2017 Ford F-150 with 3.5L EcoBoost are 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway/21 mpg combined for the rear-wheel-drive model, and 17/23/20 for the four-wheel-drive truck. Performance has simultaneously been improved thanks to an additional 10 horsepower and 50 lb-ft of torque versus the old 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, for totals of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft, and due to the improved response offered by the 10-speed transmission‘s many ratios.

    In August I ordered an F250 to pull my race car trailer, high drag but only 7,700#.
    I ordered the 6.2L gas because I figured the diesel back end cleanup is too complicated and maintenance will be too high.
    I’m worried about the new G-torque shift transmission.
    If you order the F350 it looks like you get the same transmission as what is be hind the diesel.
    Anybody got the details on the so called G transmission?
    I can still change tot he powerstroke, truck not preferenced yet.
