2017 Ford F-150 Wins A Top Green Vehicle Award From AAA

Sponsored Links

The 2017 Ford F-150 has won a “Top Green Vehicle” award in the pickup truck category from the AAA Green Car Guide, owing to its best-in-class fuel economy and other virtues. In particular, AAA likes the F-150 XLT 4×2 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, which is EPA-estimated at 22 miles per gallon in mixed driving.

“Many drivers need the flexibility of a larger vehicle, but still want to make a green choice,” says Megan McKernan, who is Manager at the Automotive Research Center at the Automobile Club of Southern California – the largest AAA affiliate by membership. “AAA awarded the Ford F-150 XLT the 2017 pickup category winner in the AAA Green Car Guide for its best-in-class fuel economy, great visibility, spacious interior and exceptional handling.”

Of course, the Ford F-150 is set to grow even more efficient next year, as the entire range gains Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission, and a diesel engine is introduced. Later, an electric-hybrid model will follow.

  1. would be a great story if the f150 actually got what it claimed. i’ve been able to achieve better mpg the window sticker ratings on my last 3 vehicles. i’m unable to reach the claimed 21mpg on the f150 i just bought & that’s running 55mph on flat highway with no accessories on & tires slightly over inflated. perhaps summer gas will help
