Finding a Fuel-Efficient Truck

Owning a truck doesn’t mean you have to sink hundreds of dollars at the gas station each week. Maximizing fuel economy is a respectable goal when making your purchase. We offer a number of fuel-efficient truck options at Sunset Trucks, including Chevrolet, Ram, Toyota, and Ford, to name a few!

Chevrolet Silverado

A popular choice among truck buyers, the Chevrolet Silverado is a full-size option with surprisingly good gas mileage. Equipped with automatic transmission and a 4.3-liter V6 engine, the Silverado achieves 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

Ram 1500

The Ram 1500, with a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine is powerful and efficient. Yielding 21 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck at the gas station in the Ram. As another full-size truck, it too packs a punch with rear-wheel drive and 240-horsepower. With a sleek design and luxury at every trim level, this modern option is easy on the eyes.

Toyota Tacoma

Ranked one of the most fuel efficient trucks of 2017, the Toyota Tacoma is an excellent option. With the 2017 model achieving 19 mpg city and 24 highway, it’ll serve you well whether you’re traveling near or far. As a midsize truck, this compact ride can handle just about anything you throw its way. If you’re in the market for a full-size truck, the Tundra is another good option from Toyota.

Ford F-150

No truck recommendation list would be complete without an ode to a favored classic, the F-150. The 2.7-liter V6, twin-turbo version of this truck delivers in terms of gas mileage. At 19 mpg city and 26 highway, the efficiency accomplished by this truck is truly impressive, especially when considering its size. Equipped with six-speed automatic transmission and 325 horsepower, the F-150 delivers on power and performance too!

Don’t feel like you have to choose between gas mileage and powerful performance. With so many great and efficient options out there, it can be hard to make the right choice. The team here at Sunset Trucks is available to answer any questions you have.
