I get 22 MPG! With 4x4 Cummins Diesel 2500 QUAD CAB -->210,000+ miles!!!<--

Longevity, fuel efficient, 15-18mpg while towing a heavy load.

It will out pull anything from Japan get better MPG and has more room.

I will get more for it when I sell it than any gas truck with half as many miles.

In 200k miles I have replaced 1 fuel injector and changed oil every 10k miles.

Why would you buy anything else?

I agree about diesels.  I can get as much as 24 mpg out of a 10 year old Ford F-350, a one ton truck with the good old 7.3 liter engine.  It will pull anything.  Forget Japanese trucks.  Buy an American truck built to last.  Buy a diesel.

Have you ever driven a Toyota Tacoma with a 4cyl engine????  What a joke!@  This truck has no power/torque.  Its a complete dog of a truck.   Nice how they picture what looks like a 4WD truck.  Yet  if you read the article it says you can only get the 4cyl in a 2WD version.  A bit misleading.

Dumb article.  Comparing small 4 and 6 cylinder trucks with full size trucks sporting V8s and turbo 6s.

I wish I had a Rice burnner Honda so I could see how  it would take 10 Sq. of shingles compaired to 3 six pack of flowers and a bag of potting soil. As Normal MSN thing that US Trucks are crap and rice burners are great but I guess whn you never had to us a truck to make a living you know which truck to buy.

Uhm?!

 

"In our opinion, the best engine in a full-size pickup is the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the ."

 

Yet the picture shows a badass looking Ford SVT Raptor which comes with a 6.2L V-8, which is NOT the truck you're trying to get people interested in with the line written above....

 

 Not only that but it goes on to say, "This turbocharged V6 delivers power that meets or beats any V8 on the market while offering competitive fuel economy." Really? Because i don't think it does... You have pictured a 6.2L V-8 beast of a truck.... I don't think it can meet let alone beat the power of the Raptor you have pictured.

Well it's nice to see the improvements pickups have made.  I have owned several Ford & GM over the years, all did extremely well reliability wise -- never left me stranded and never nickeled & dimed me in mx costs.  I must say for my newer Chevy Silverado LTZ 4X4 quad cab is just an absolute stellar truck, smooth, rugged, quiet, powerful & does well mileage wise especially for such a large truck.

Only complaint I have is they use the Ford Raptor for the Ford F-150 eco-boost. which isn't a V-6 and only comes in the V-8 on the Raptor. Yes the article says 4x4 but the Raptor isn't a V-6. Why didn't they just combined the F-150 4wd and the F-150 2wd into 1 article as well? If I didn't know my vehicles well and went to a lot looking for a Eco-boost and seen the Raptor with all the graphics and thought it was the eco-boost cause I seen that here. Id be in for a nasty surprise when I started it and seen the mpg on it.

diesel is the answer plain and simple.

 

Large size car - Passat TDI 38 mpg combined

Med size car - Jetta TDI 38 combined

SUV -  audi , wv etc  - 25 mpg

 

Hell the new chevy cruze  gets 46 mpg  hwy. 

 

No special batteries or flowers on the dash just  drive and go
