The Most Fuel-Efficient New Trucks This Year


To identify the most fuel-efficient new pickup trucks, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on estimated miles per gallon from the Environmental Protection Agency. Trucks are ranked on the highest EPA combined MPG available for each name plate. In the case of a tie, when possible, the truck with the highest combined MPG floor, or the lower estimated annual fuel costs, ranks higher. We considered all small and standard size pickups for the latest available model year in our analysis and did not include electric vehicles. 

Though trucks are ranked by the most efficient combination of engine and drivetrain for combined city and highway driving, we also provide the range of fuel efficiency for each nameplate for all models available. 

Estimated annual fuel costs are also from the EPA and assume 15,000 miles of driving – 55% city and 45% highway – with fuel costs of $3.42/gallon for regular unleaded gasoline, $3.88/gallon for mid-grade unleaded gasoline, and $4.19/gallon for premium.
