Is diesel not required to spec their MPG? I was curious after all the talk about diesel vs EB vs PB, but don't see it listed.

I noticed that as well. This info seems to be brand new, so maybe the F-150 Powerstroke will be added soon.

Looks pretty close. I guess that’s a good sign, especially with the bumps in torque and horsepower on the 3.5 EcoBoost and the 5.0 V8.
Tell ya what.
My current truck gets 12MPG, on the Highway, going Downhill, with a Tailwind on a GOOD DAY.
In 4WD in the snow with my sled trailer, I am lucky if I get 6.!

I will take 24mpg (or anything even remotely close) ALL FREAKING DAY LONG!! :) :)

I have the 5.0 4WD crew cab. I’d be interested in the PB or even the 2.7EB for better mileage next time.

I was impressed with the 2.7 EcoBoost on the test drive event. I may regret the MPGs later, but I ordered the 3.5 EcoBoost on my build because as the guys on Top Gear would say; “SPEED AND POWER!!!!” 💥🏎💥

Trust me, you Will Not regret it! You only lose what, 2 mpg? You gain how much more power for that? duh, no brainier. 🧠

So what was the actual point of putting cylinder deactivation on the 5.0L? Sad.

Had a 78 K10 shorty, full time 4x4
10mpg—uphill, downhill, city, hiway, tailgate up, tailgate down, loaded, unloaded, falling out of airplane or towing—it flat did not care. But it was nice not having to get out to lock hubs in the winter.

My salesman, who’s been selling Fords for decades and also sold me my Bullitt, says I’d have to shoot him before he’d let me buy the 2.7. Said it had reliability issues at least early on, and it takes a resell hit compared to the 5.0 and the 3.5. I got the 5.0 on the lot because it had the equipment I wanted. There was a 3.5 that was bare-bones but DAMN that 3.5 was smooth and sweet. I don’t know if the 3.5 would give me any better MPG real-world than the 5.0.
