Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Beats Ford F-150 EcoBoost in Fuel Efficiency
While it’s not surprising that the EcoDiesel is more fuel-efficient, since it burns oil instead of gasoline, it is surprising just how much more fuel-efficient the Ram truck is than the F-150. In a recent comparative review by AutoGuide, the diesel Ram didn’t just beat the F-150’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine—it also managed to achieve an average fuel rating that was slightly over the manufacturer’s claim.

Even though both trucks were driven with a light foot and on the same route, the F-150 didn’t even come close to reaching the Ram truck’s fuel efficiency. In fact, it didn’t even come close to the manufacturer’s claimed average fuel rating.
Along with boasting better fuel efficiency, the review also doted on the Ram EcoDiesel for its superior presence on the road, claiming it was more planted than the F-150—a negative about the Ford’s lower weight.
After this comparison, there’s no doubt that the battle for the industry’s best truck will continue full force.
