In this TFLtruck video, we drive, test and reveal the “Top 3 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks in America” based on TFL’s 100-mile highway mpg loop.

Strict attention to detail was a priority as a means of keeping the mpg test consistent and fair for each truck tested. The same trailer was used and each truck drove the exact same route. More than a dozen trucks were tested towing a 5,600-pound trailer. Any guesses as to which trucks proved to be the most fuel efficient?

As an added bonus, Andre and Nathan reveal the two trucks that got the best mileage unladen. Surprisingly, the winner recorded better than 30 mpg, which is on par or better than V6-powered crossovers.

If you are curious as to which trucks rank the highest and lowest EPA-estimated fuel economy, click the link to www.fueleconomy.gov to view the list of best and worst mpg trucks, vans, and SUVs for 2016. It would be interesting to compare the EPA numbers against TFL’s test results.
