    It's a changing world, most truck buyers take fuel economy into consideration now. Many trucks out there can best full size SUV's.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

I heard a rumour too that the v8s are being phased out totally from the truck line due to low demand. Tried Chevy when I bought, not as much space in the quad cabs in the back seat. Got a better deal from Ford, so went with them.
    To add to this: I have '17 5.0 v8 and my daily driving (50/50 city/highway) i sit at around 13.5l/100km. Running on the highway it'll go lower, just got back from Thunder Bay and I was at 11l/100km. That being said, I don't smash the gas like I used too. Also, when I first got the truck I checked the computer verses calculated mileage and it was close. So those numbers are off the computer, not calculated.

    I read somewhere they're going to a 4.8l v8

    I wonder what the wisdom is, getting rid of the 5 litre. I have a 2014, 5litre. My average is 12-13 l / 100 km. That’s including pulling my 18 ft boat. I had a 2011 eco boost, loved the torque, but the mileage was within one or two kms of my 5 litre.
    The 5litre is pretty much bullet proof . I drove a new Silverado, that rode like a lumber wagon compared to my F150....the mileage seemed a lot less too.

    I can't find the article I read this in now, just articles saying that it's not true. so maybe disregard that comment.

    People that think 2 or 3 litres/100km makes such a huge difference that they wouldn't buy a truck because of that need to forget about vehicles altogether and buy a bicycle. They need to be thinking cabin comfort for long hauls,horsepower,torque and payload capacity. FFS,they're buying a truck,not a little commuter piss cutter rice burner. If that's what they want,they should buy some Korean Daewoo throwback POS. Sorry for the rant.
    When I was younger,I blew half a fortune on whisky and wild women. The rest I just wasted.

    Haha, the rant is understandable. I get a kick out of the guys buying a truck with the best mileage then putting a set of 35's on it.

    Lots of guys are coming around to the idea that 3L per 100 over the life of a truck puts a nice quad on the back of it.

    3L/100km makes a bit of difference when you're doing 1000+km a week. Longevity of wear parts is a huge Factor when you get to this mileage. In my experience driving a car never saved me much because they were so disposable. I can definitely agree with cab comfort being a driving Factor as well, my girlfriend has a Ram and I can't stand to drive it because it feels awkward with the proportions. The first time I sat in my truck at the dealer it fit like a glove.

    I feel like most people by their vehicles based on opinion more than anything.

    Get a Toyota Tundra. Yes itís not the best on gas mileage but you wonít have repair bills and holds value if you plan on selling it.

    The manufacturers can build alot smaller turbo engines that put out as much and more power than a much bigger v8. You also get all your torque in the 2-3000 rpm range unlike a v8. They can do this with less weight and better mpg. Many cars have already gone this path with smaller turbo engines

    Currently own a 2015 F150 with the 2.7 Eco.

    On average commute with mix of city and Hwy I get 12.1L/100. Trips out to cottage and on highways which are 80Km an hour, where I can set the cruise to 92km/h, I have had it as low as 9.7L/100.

    Hauls my 10x6 landscape trailer with my SxS, no problem, and counter to what other posters say, with the trailer on, going from Ottawa to Parry Sound, I had economy at 13.8L/100.

    Zero issues with the truck.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.
