Official EPA ratings for the 2021 Ford F-150 are in, as noticed by members of the F-150 Gen14 forums. Figures are out for all gasoline powertrains, including the new PowerBoost hybrid. By and large, they match numbers released by Natural Resources Canada last month certifying mileage estimates in that country. However, the 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel is notably absent from EPA figures at time of writing. We will keep an eye out for those figures and update the 2021 Ford F-150 fuel economy figures when they comes in.
2021 Ford F-150 EPA Fuel Economy
Starting with the base 3.3-liter flex-fuel V6 in 2WD configuration, official EPA estimates come in at 20 City / 24 Highway / 21 Combined mpg on regular pump gas. On E85, those figures drop to 14 City/ 19 Highway / 16 Combined mpg. In 4WD configuration, those figures drop to 19 City / 22 Highway / 20 Combined mpg on regular gas, and 14 City / 18 Highway / 15 Combined mpg on E85. The F-150’s base engine largely remains the same as the 2020 model. The 2WD’s highway fuel economy figure falls by 1 mpg, while the 4WD’s E85 highway figure improves by 1 mpg.
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is still the most fuel efficient of the gasoline powertrains. In 2WD trucks, it manages 20 City / 26 Highway / 24 Combined mpg — same as the previous generation. However, 4WD fuel economy figures improve by 1 mile per gallon to 19 City / 24 Highway / 21 Combined mpg.
As for the most popular engine, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, highway fuel economy also slightly improves from 2020. 2WD models manage 18 City / 24 Highway / 20 Combined mpg. 4WD models achieve 18 City / 23 Highway / 20 Combined mpg, according to published EPA figures.
Ford’s 5.0-liter Coyote V8 remains the least efficient of the bunch, as you’d expect. On regular gasoline, 2WD EPA figures stand at 17 City / 24 Highway / 20 Combined mpg. On E85, that falls to 12 City / 18 Highway / 14 Combined mpg. Again, those figures are slightly better than the thirteenth-generation F-150, particularly in terms of fuel economy on the highway.
2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid manages 24 mpg
The PowerBoost Hybrid backed by a 3.5-liter engine does beat out the rest of Ford’s gas engines in city fuel economy. EPA figures don’t peg it quite as high as efficient as the 2.7-liter engine’s 26 mpg on the highway. As it stands, the PowerBoost comes in at 24 City / 24 Highway / 24 Combined mpg.
