Default some leaked fuel mileage estimates on 2015 F150 2.7L ecobust

Not impressed my hemi ram can easily get this mileage given how they were driving it.

My guess is another Ford lie on an ecoboost engine for Fuel economy.

2015 Ford F-150 2.7 EcoBoost Four-Door Crew Cab Is Capable Of 23.5 MPG
Then this.

Quote:
Test 1: 16.6 MPG over 75 miles mixed between backroads and rolling hill highways. A few blats at full throttle.

Test 2: 16.9 MPG with Doug driving 47.5 miles of the same kind of terrain.
My Jeep does low-mid teens. It runs a carbed small block.

Pff. That's the numbers my 94 F150 is pulling, with a 300ci inline 6.

I found the 2013 ecoboost I'm driving can get 21-22 but it's very difficult and it seems the outside temp varies the mileage a lot. Normal driving all back roads nets 16-18 depending on my location (very hilly near home and flat on other roasts of my territory). It does tow a lot better than the 5.3 I had before and kicks my FIL's 6.0 2500hd's ass pulling his boat in mileage and ease of towing.

I liked the chevy better for comfort and options.

my 01 5.3 consistently gets 15-16 (doing it by the numbers) not a computer read out. that is a fair mix of back roads and highway.

I got 19.5 computer (18.3mpg hand calculated) yesterday on a 220 mile trip at 78mph cruise control with my dirt bike in the bed of my ram with a 5.7l 8sp.

no one will deny the 3.5 EB has great power...if you can drive 55-60mph in hillsdale you can rock 20+ mpg. If you get into the boost during cruise the fuel economy goes to crap. My brothers/business has 10+ 2011+ EB 4x4 F150s running around for there guys and they all average 14-15mpg (75% highway driving). The GM 5.3ls get great fuel mileage but towing anything more then a small boat/trailer and they struggle in my experience. The GM 6.0ls are good at keeping the middle east supplying lots of oil to the US...My buddy just traded his 2009 2500HD with a 6.0l and he was averaging about 10-11mpg. When he towed his bass boat he got around 10mpg. He just picked up a 14 ram with 8 speed and now he averages about 16-17mpg and gets 13-14mpg towing the same boat.

Weird, my 2014 Chevy with the 5.3 pulls my 20' enclosed car hauler much better than my 2011 5.7l Ram did. Gets better mileage doing it too.

I hated my Ram, I also hate my 6cyl 2014 Ram. Luckily I'm not the one paying the note.

My uncle has the 3.5 eco in his truck. 4x4, short cab, long box...stock old guy truck. He gets 20-ish hand calculated with an atv and bear hunting stuff in the box and towing his 16 foot camper as well. Granted, he is an old guy and drives like one too. Everyone else I know that has an ecoboost claims less than impressive mpgs. My 06 5.4 screw 4x4 gets about 15-16 mixed driving.

Ram MPGs from my customers all HWY numbers (crew cab 4x4 8speed)

V6= 24-27mpg
V8Hemi= 20-23mpg
EcoDiesel= 27-31mpg

Those are real world average customers... Everyone drives differently

I got 8.6 mpg towing his boat to Lake cumberland and back with the ecoboost. He gets 5-6 with the 6.0 chevy. Not to mention the Ecoboost pulls it up hills MUCH better than the 6.0. If it had a better interior and the options of a chevy I would buy an Ecoboost but I'll keep my chevy parked in the driveway for.

My 5.3 silverados (I've had 3) have all towed just fine in my opinion, and my current truck wth the 6 speed trans tows as good if not better than my 7.3 powerstroke did from a power stand point. Being a half ton it doesn't have the stability the f350 did, but that could certainly be remedied with some air bags.

Yeah, I was never a big ford fan, but thought i'd attempt to support the local economy ..... my mistake our Focus has been nothing but a lemon, the trans, the my ford suck, the steering, front suspension, etc. We just got it back after 2 weeks in the shop and them not being able to figure out how to even fix the problems.

That and neither of our focus's consistently get the ford "bragged about and marketed" fuel mileage.

2011 ram 6sp.....2014 ram 8sp...HUGE difference. I had an 03 and an 04 ram and I didnt care for those, not that great of fuel economy. The new 8 sp trans makes a huge difference in performance and fuel economy. Once GM and Ford get the 8sp in the half tons it will be much better.

I just got a 15 taurus for company car about a month ago and so far its much better then the 13....no more MYFORD SUCK!!! So far I have put 250k on the past 3 Taurus's combined and all I have done is oil changes and tires...no brakes, or other issues....but my 13 did go into dealership like 8 times for issues with myford touch.
