2016 Ford F-150 Released, Fuel Economy

While different manufacturers envisage better fuel economy and greener cars that have lower carbon emissions and better enhanced powertrains, off-road racing enthusiasts had something different to revel at during the North American Auto Show in Detroit. Ford came all out with the new Ford F-150 that is meaner and filled with raw power and from the gasps and glittering eyes that were in the crowd, it is safe to say that Ford, once again have done a good job.

It is not clear which Engine the company is going to use on their latest model but there are a few ideas that have been floated around. The conventional go to engine for this 2016 Ford F-150 model has been the 6.2 liter V8 engine that is capable of 411 horses. However, the new and improved model is expected to either have a 5.0 liter V8 engine or it might come with the more powerful 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 engine which is more powerful giving out 360 horsepower and delivering 420 pounds of torque. Given that this truck is all about power, it would not be a shocker if the company decided to go with the latter. This will be mated to a 10 speed automatic transmission.

With such brute power, you would not expect the truck to raise any good numbers that can save you any significant amount at the pump but truth be told, it is does not perform too shabbily here either. It is capable of doing up to 14 miles per gallon in the city and 18 on the same amount on the highway which is not too bad given the numbers the 2016 Ford F-150 is putting up in terms of power.

In a bid to be more efficient and fuel economic, the new model has shaven down some carbs by going for an aluminum body build. The front is dominated by a black grille with the name of the company printed, highly conspicuous headlights that have accented day light driving lights and the 35 inch tall off road tires. There is not much happening on the sides and the back since the front does most of the heavy lifting in terms of aesthetic appeal.

The interior is a joy and comfort to be hold bragging of high quality leather finishing on the upholstery and a variety of upgrades that include the 7 inch LCD screen, Off-road mode driver assist technology as well as the Terrain management system.
