2019 Ford F-150 MPG
When you get started on that big project, it’ll be nice to have a pickup truck that’ll be working hard to keep you focused on the job, instead of focusing on where the next gas station is.
To help you choose a pickup that’ll do just that, our team here at The Lake Dealerships has put together this guide to the 2019 Ford F-150 MPG. While this truck gets a standard fuel economy of 19 MPG city and 25 MPG highway, truckers in Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte who want to learn more should keep reading.
2019 Ford F-150 Configurations
There’s a host of different ways to build the Ford F-150, and while they all have similar MPG ratings, they’re not all the same. For starters, there are seven trim levels for this pickup. The XL and XLT are the two basic trims, but there’s also the following:
- King Ranch
On top of that, there are three fuel tanks for you to choose from. The standard range comes with a 23-gallon or 26-gallon tank, depending on the cab style you choose. If you’re looking to really go the distance, the extended range gas tank can hold up to 36 gallons of fuel!
These trim levels can be outfitted with one of six available engines. The standard option is the 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine, which turns out up to 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. One of the other options is the more fuel-efficient 2.7L EcoBoost® engine. On top of that, there’s even the ramped-up efficiency of the 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 Turbo Diesel engine.
Then you’ll choose between the standard 6-speed automatic transmission and the available 10-speed automatic transmission, which will provide smooth shifting power for improved efficiency. Plus, if you want better off-road performance, there’s an available 4×4 system that will also impact fuel economy.
Miles Per Gallon
Now that you know about the options you have with the 2019 Ford F-150, it’s time to discuss some of their MPG ratings.
If you’re looking to get the standard 19 MPG city and 25 MPG highway, you’ll need the XL trim level with the 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 under the hood. It’s going to have to be paired up with the 6-speed automatic transmission and two-wheel drive, as well.
The more fuel-efficient 2.7L EcoBoost® engine can be equipped to the XL, XLT, or Lariat trim. When it’s matched up with the available 10-speed automatic transmission and two-wheel drive, it gets an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 26 MPG highway.
Finally, there’s the specially engineered 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 Turbo Diesel. It can go under the hood of the Lariat, King Ranch, or the Platinum trims. When matched up with two-wheel drive and the 10-speed automatic transmission, the Ford F-150 gets an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.
While MPG ratings are important, you also need a pickup truck that’s powerful enough to get the job done with ease.
The 2019 Ford F-150 has a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds. Plus, with a bevy of innovative towing features, pulling your haul will be easier than ever. The available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ can help synchronize the truck and trailer while backing up, and it’s as simple as turning a dial. There’s also the factory-installed trailer brake controller and the Dynamic Hitch Assist.
Finally, for all those jobs that don’t call for a trailer, you’ll have 3,270 pounds of maximum payload to take advantage of. Best of all, so that you can make the most of it, you can choose from a 5.5-foot bed with 52.8 cubic feet of space or a 6.5-foot bed that has 62.3 cubic feet to fill up. There’s even an 8-foot long bed, which has a maximum cargo volume of 77.4 cubic feet!
Furthermore, the bed is made out of a high-strength aluminum alloy, so you won’t have to take it easy throwing things in there. On top of that, the available BoxLink™ system will make it easier to attach accessories and secure cargo, so your 2019 Ford F-150 can be customized to match the job you need to get done.
Get the Most Out of Your F-150
Estimates will help you get a better understanding of how far you can take your truck, but fuel economy also depends on your specific driving habits. There are a few simple tricks that you can employ, which can help get you better MPG from your 2019 Ford F-150.
For starters, you’ll want to go easy on the pedal. Whether you’re towing a big haul or just going for a Sunday drive, giving your truck some extra time to pick up speed will keep it from fighting excessive drag. That will conserve extra fuel in the long run.
Over time, the rubber seal of your gas cap can degrade, so it’s important to check that it’s maintaining an airtight seal. This will help keep oxygen out of the tank, so your pickup can burn less fuel and maintain great efficiency. Replacing your air filter at the proper interval can help, too. It’ll make it easier for the engine to draw in clean air, so it doesn’t have to work as hard.
Keeping your tires properly inflated is also important. That’s why you should check them every 3,000 miles and adjust the inflation as needed, so that it matches the pressure outlined in your owner’s manual or on the sticker in your driver’s side doorjamb. This will help maintain a low rolling distance, so your F-150 can use less fuel to get up to speed.
