Unfortunately, they did not have a gas 3.5 EcoBoost at my event and I haven’t had the pleasure yet, so I can’t compare.Thank you for posting! How did the power / get up and go compare to a regular 3.5 ecoboost (if you have driven one before)?
I was at the event as well. These numbers are pretty useless for mpg because Ford had most of the trucks running with ac on for the full day. So if you consider that, 19.8 mpg for a car just truck sitting there and running could be considered a "good thing".Great info. Thank you for posting. Underwhelmed however with the numbers unless I’m missing something.
19.7 MPG for a test rider is amazing... really.. over a average run time of 65 hrs and about 38 mph.. definately city driving, besides the "lets see what it will do tests " .Just got back from the test drive event, and here is what the PowerBoost was averaging MPG wide per the onboard trip computers.
I agree, this is not even close to a real indication and the numbers at this event will be bad. I expect the real numbers will be much better.I have been to tons of events like this over the years. The way the manuf. (not just Ford) reps blast them and how they let the testing public romp them; coupled with a lot of a/c and idle time, I would give that number an A+. 'Real world' the numbers are going to come back pretty stout..imo.
What I meant was, if they drove it 2700 miles over multiple tanks and only got 19 mpg, that’s not that great since your best mpg should be on highway cruising.The fuel mileage is not for one tank. It is a collective for 2700miles which is at least two or three tanks of mileage.
I have not been to one of the recent F-150 events, are the Ford reps driving every one of these trucks from place to place? Even if they are, I still believe that the mileage is going to be better than what is shown on the dash based on a number of factors regarding the trucks being demonstrators.
I am not expecting 700 miles on a tank as Ford has targeted (I assume the target # is based on the least loaded/lightest Powerboost truck they build), but I would like to see 550.
I have an appointment in Hurst tomorrow, I’ll see if they tell me anything else.My rep at the Dallas drive event said the loaded limited 4x4 got 22 on the highway, so if the guesstimate of 23 combined is close, it should get pretty close to 23 city, which is great compared to 16 which I believe is the city rating of a 2020 EB.
