Ford F-150 Raptor R Makes 2024 Meanest List

It goes without saying that pretty much everyone that knows anything about automobiles knows precisely why the Ford F-150 Raptor R exists – to provide a select few with a highly capable, off-road-focused, supercharged V8-powered pickup with a menacing look that matches those attributes. Given the fact that it’s also quite heavy, no one would expect this 700+ horsepower machine to return anything resembling decent fuel economy either, and as such, it’s also no surprise that the Ford F-150 Raptor R has landed on the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s (ACEEE) 2024 GreenerCars “meanest” list.

While both the Ford Ranger the Ford Maverick Hybrid were praised on this recent report for being “greener” choices among modern vehicles, the Ford F-150 Raptor R made the “meanest” list for being among the 12 worst performing mass-market models in regards to not only its fuel consumption – which results in an annual estimated fuel cost of $3,777, the third highest on this list – but also, its impact on the environment. As a result, the Raptor R received a green score of just 24 out of 100 possible points.

Each year, ACEEE releases its GreenerCars report, which is an assessment of the greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions from the production, use, and disposal of every new vehicle on the market, coupled with fuel economy data. This data is calculated from the time a vehicle is produced to the time it reaches its end-of-life moment as well, giving us a total picture of a vehicle’s impact on not only our wallets, but also the environment as a whole.

Interestingly, for all-electric vehicles, this includes the upstream emissions generated by not only the electricity used by an EV, but also the emissions produced when mining and processing minerals for its batteries, as well as the emissions stemming from manufacturing those vehicles and their components. From there, ACEEE assigns each vehicle a green score, then ranks the best and worst in categories including the greenest, greener, (which doesn’t include EVs), and the meanest of the bunch.
