2016 Ford f150 Engine and MPG

Ford’s f150 has always been tough and there is no denying this heavy-duty hard-working vehicle can get the job done, be it loading timber or getting through those muddy trenches. The one thing that has always been an issue though, is the fuel economy. These types of vehicles have always been given the monstrous title of “Gas Guzzlers”. And in 2016, Ford has gone to great lengths to improve the fuel consumption in ways that do not compromise on power and performance.

Ford has made some drastic changes to the body. The alloy-body is now made with the highest strength military-grade aluminium, while the steel frame is made with high-strength steel.

This is not just any light improvement. Excuse the pun, because this change has taken off an impressive 700 pounds off the total weight of the car. This allows for better functionality with less fuel consumption.

The design of the car is chic enough to look modern , but still maintains that tough-guy appeal with its sharper edges.

Since it is used for towing, there is a top-class towing system in place.
