The F-150 is the base model of Ford’s large line of pickups. The first generation of the truck was introduced in 1948. The basic F-150 XL gets 23 mpg in highway driving. Of course, as engines get bigger, gas mileage drops. The FX2 model has a 5-liter V8, which gets only 21 mpg in highway driving. The SVT Raptor sports model has a 6.2-liter V8, which only gets 16 mpg in highway driving. The Limited model costs over $55,000 when fully loaded with all of its options. The restyled Ford F-150 costs $170 more than the previous year’s model.
