  • With a lighter, yet stronger high-strength, military-grade, aluminum- alloy body, paired with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with stop/start technology, the 2017 F-150 4x2 has a best-in-class EPA gas fuel economy rating of 19/26/22 mpg city/highway/combined
  • As the best-selling trucks in America for more than 40 continuous years, the Ford F-Series trucks remain the toughest, smartest, most capable Ford trucks ever

DEARBORN, Mich., Mar. 29, 2017 – The 2017 Ford F-150 truck was named the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) Greener Choice award - the only full-size truck in the council’s Greener Choices list.

The F-150 4x2 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine earned an ACEEE Green Score of 39, which placed it 12th overall in the Greener Choices for 2017. The truck meets LEV-III ULEV70/Tier 2 Bin 4 on unleaded gasoline and was rated by the EPA at 19 MPG city, 26 MPG highway and 22 MPG combined – all best-in-class gas fuel economy ratings.

ACEEE’s Greener Choices list reviews top widely available petroleum-fueled vehicles with automatic transmissions and identifies practical options in each vehicle class.

Continuous innovation is at the core of Ford F-Series success, making it America’s best-selling truck for 40 consecutive years and America’s best-selling vehicle for 35 straight years.

As the toughest, smartest and most capable Ford trucks, Ford continues to innovate with a variety of powertrain and fuel saving options, including the first-ever 10-speed automatic transmission on a production truck, and standard stop/start technologies to improve fuel economy. It’s why Ford F-150 was also named the Most Wanted Full-Size Truck by Edmunds, 2017 Autobytel Buyer’s Choice Full-Size Truck award and a three-peat winner of Kelley Blue Book “Best Buy” of the Year for trucks award, among other accolades.
