Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Pickup Trucks

Trucks aren't know for fuel economy, but increasingly, finding a pickup that isn't a gas hungry beast is a top concern for many truck shoppers. So if you're looking for a good way to save money, both in terms of overall vehicle cost and especially at the pumps, check out this list of our Top 10 fuel friendly pickups.

The six cylinder Nissan Frontier can achieve a solid 17 mpg when packaged up with the either transmission, or drive-train. That's right, it doesn't matter which model of the 4.0 Frontier you choose, you're looking at exactly the same EPA numbers: 16 mpg city, and 20 mpg highway. That V6 gets 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. The V6 Frontier starts at $22,620 and while it's not the most fuel efficient, most powerful, or cheapest car on this list, it does offer a nice balance of the three.

Re: Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Pickup Trucks

But the big full size brawny F150 4 door EcoBoost pick up truck gets 16/22 mpg.
Sought of takes the reason to buy a supposed economical 'compact' truck away, doesn't it?

Small trucks are more fun to drive and fit in small garages more easily.

Re: Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Pickup Trucks

If they made a full size get 16/22 with a v6 turbo'd. Why not make a mid size with a 4cyl turbo'd get 22/25??

Because ford doesn't have a mid size truck in the US any more. And we never got the double cab either.
