ram 1500 fuel efficient truck for sale in new westminster bcEfficiency can affect the long-term cost of truck ownership. Gas use is especially critical for energy-intensive tasks like towing. Furthermore, if you utilize your vehicle for work, how long a litre of petrol lasts can significantly influence your bottom line. 

Two of the Lower Mainland's most popular pickups, the 2020 Ram 1500 and Ford F-150, have improved their performance in recent years. 

Here is how the two compare when it comes to fuel economy. 

Basic Models

The 2020 Ram 1500 features a 3.6L V6 engine with an eight-speed transmission on its 4x2 Tradesman and Big Horn trims. This powertrain averages 10.8 litres per 100 km, while the 4x4 version needs 11.1 L/100 KM.

In comparison, the Ford F-150's two base trucks, the XL and XLT, use 12.1 L/100 KM in city driving. 

Comparing Larger Motors

More powerful engines reduce fuel economy. That is the case with the Ram 1500's 5.7L V8 HEMI, which gets a combined 13.8 L/100 KM. This motor has an eTorque mild-hybrid variant that improves consumption to 12.8 L/100 KM with a 4x4 drivetrain.

Ford's 3.5L V6 EcoBoost gets 13.1 L/100 KM on the highway and 15.3 in the city. 

Despite the better efficiency, the Ram trucks have more strength and come out slightly ahead when it comes to towing capacity.
