2024 Ford Fuel Economy Guide & MPG Information

Ford Fuel Economy Guide - Germain Ford of Sidney

With gas prices constantly fluctuating, and with more fuel-efficient vehicles becoming more prevalent, there has never been a better time to make fuel economy a top priority when shopping for a new vehicle. Ford’s EcoBoost® technology has made even conventional gasoline vehicles much more efficient. Add to that Ford’s lineup of hybrid and fully electric vehicles, and your choices for a fuel-sipping Ford are quite extensive. An extensive selection is always great, but it can make it harder to know exactly which vehicle is right for you, so we put together the following guide to Ford fuel economy, so you can see how all of the models stack up.

There are quite a few factors that go into what your fuel economy rating will be, choice of engine is probably the biggest, but opting for things like a manual transmission, 4WD/AWD, or a convertible can also have an impact. That’s why we’ve listed a range of MPG numbers for each model, as some can have up to a dozen different configurations with different fuel economy ratings. You can see that there are a few standouts, like the Escape and the Maverick, which have hybrid options that in some cases double the fuel economy numbers. There is also the Mustang, which boasts an impressive highway rating thanks primarily to an aerodynamic advantage over the trucks and SUVs that make up so much of the automotive market today. Even the F-150 gets some impressive numbers when equipped with the available hybrid drivetrain. Sure, the Maverick gets better fuel economy, but in the full-size truck segment, the F-150 is the king of fuel economy. The low end of the F-150 numbers comes from the 700-horsepower supercharged V8 available for the F-150 Raptor. This is a specialized option though, and buyers of any configuration of the mainstream F-150 will notice much better fuel economy. The last number to talk about is the incredible 101 MPGe produced by the Escape PHEV. The conventional hybrid model already turns out some impressive numbers, but the plug-in hybrid takes it even further, and depending on what your daily commute looks like, you could avoid having to refill the tank for weeks on end.


Ford Electric Models Range

Ford Mustang Mach-E

Range (Standard Battery)

Range (Extended Range Battery)

Mustang Mach-E

224 – 250 260 – 312

F-150 Lightning

224 – 250 260 – 312

When you’re looking to use as little gas as possible, it’s hard to beat zero. And that’s exactly what you get with Ford’s pure electric models, The Mustang Mach-E and the F-150 Lightning. Equipped with the standard battery, both vehicles offer a lot of range, at the higher end of the normal range offered in most electric vehicles. But Ford offers extended range batteries for both vehicles, and with those batteries, they become some of the longest-range electric vehicles on the market. Of course, range anxiety can still be an issue for some. Fortunately, there are a number of things that can improve range, or at least keep it from becoming something you need to worry about in the future.


How To Overcome Range Anxiety?

The first thing you can do is to order your vehicle with the aforementioned extended range battery. Obviously, the simplest way to worry less about range is to add more of it. Not an option on every electric vehicle, but Ford EVs do have that advantage. The next thing is to always keep your vehicle plugged in when you’re at home. It’s very possible that your daily commute would only really require one charge a week, or maybe even longer, and you don’t feel the need to always keep it plugged in. But the unexpected happens all the time, and something as simple as plugging in your EV when you’re home will let you be much better prepared for it, and therefore less anxious.

Ford’s onboard tech can help reduce your range anxiety as well. The FordPass app lets you monitor charging and battery levels remotely, right from your phone. The EV Trip Planner, built into the onboard navigation system in your Ford EV, can help you plan your trip around charging station locations, so you never have to worry that you’ll run out of power before you reach the next one. The last tip is to simply be mindful of how you drive, and this applies to getting better fuel economy out of a conventional vehicle as well. Don’t drive around with a lot of unnecessary weight in the vehicle, remove any cargo that isn’t necessary for that specific trip. Ford also offers advanced adaptive cruise control, including a hands-free version called BlueCruise. This will help you to maximize range/fuel economy while on the highway, while also reducing driver fatigue, it’s a win-win strategy.
