RAM 1500 Has Best Fuel Economy Compared to Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado

As the price at the pump and environmental awareness have both risen over the years, so has the popularity of fuel efficient vehicles. While great gas mileage is not usually synonymous with big pickup trucks, V-W Motors is happy to say that truckmakers are starting change this by improving fuel economy ratings for their 2014 lineups. We were pleased to find out that RAM trucks come out ahead of the rest, yet again. When stacked against the Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F-150, the RAM 1500 beats the competition in added MPG.

Right now, the 2013 RAM 1500 achieves 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 17 city miles per gallon (and 20 mpg combined with the use of standard rear-wheel drive) thanks to its new and efficient 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The four-wheel drive option offers a combined rating of 19 mpg. RAM 1500 four-wheel drive trucks give drivers the option of four transmission/engine combinations, but for the most fuel-efficient choice, choose the rear-wheel drive.

How do these numbers look compared to the mpg ratings of the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado?

The 2014 F-150 offers 18 mpg (combined rear-wheel drive option) and the Silverado 19 mpg (four-wheel drive model) and 18 mpg (rear-wheel drive model). So, the RAM slides in ahead of both challengers.

If you love your truck but also care about saving the environment (and a few bucks) the new RAM 1500 is your best bet. Come by and see how it drives for yourself at V-W Motors in Cooperstown, ND today!
