It’s a sacrifice of economy - with engines siphoning gasoline, demanding more and more resources with every mile. To accommodate those heavy-duty payloads, they require sustenance; and drivers are forced to bear the burden of costly pump visits.

Ford thinks this unfair - which is why it’s bolstering the efficiency of its 2018 F-150 XLT!




According to The Drive, the F-Series is receiving an economy upgrade. The 2018 F-150 XLT - which features a 5.0L V8 engine - will now offer improved performance, with its economy rating rising to 19 (City) and 23 (Highway). This represents a 2 MPG increase, which could translate to hundreds of dollars saved every year.

Impressed?

Ford recognizes that pick-up drivers are too often forced to endure budget-busting miles. The 2018 F-150 XLT should, however, help to ease the burden. This truck will pair direct-injection technology with a new 10-speed automatic transmission to ensure precise fuel distribution. The V8 will be optimized.

It will also deliver power. The Drive notes that - despite the increase in efficiency - the new XLT will still provide robust performance, yielding 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. This truly is a perfect platform.
