Even so, if you want a truck that guzzles less gas, the new F-150 will have some engine options to interest you.

The 3.3-liter V6, for instance, will be able to achieve 19/25/22 MPG. That's a one MPG improvement when compared to the 3.5-liter engine it's replacing from the 2017 F-150.

A Roadside Emergency Kit Could Be a Game-Changer
