Gas mileage has mattered for a long time. Fuel costs make up a significant portion of Ames drivers' budgets. Over the last year or so, however, it has become even more important. Gasoline is taking a bigger and bigger bite out of the family finances, after all. That means that many Boone residents who are shopping for a new or used vehicle are more likely to take gas mileage into account, maybe even as a top factor in this vehicle selection.

That's why this article is going to explore which new Ford vehicles have the best gas mileage! Some of the hybrid and electric vehicles that Ford has debuted over the last few years win this contest, but we will also mention some traditional gasoline-only cars with great fuel economy. That way, there's something for everybody!

Ford SUVs with the Best Gas Mileage

We are going to examine three SUVs, in different configurations, in this section. The first is the 2022 Ford Escape, a two-row crossover that is very popular. The front-wheel drive (FWD) Escape gets 30 miles to the gallon combined! (28 in the city and 34 on the highway). That will certainly help your family save at the pump. The hybrid version of the same vehicle gets 41 mpg, making it an even better choice for gas-conscious families!

The 2022 Ford Explorer is a three-row SUV that can fit the whole family, and then some. Usually large vehicles like this get mediocre gas mileage, but the Explorer bucks this trend. The rear-wheel drive (RWD) model gets 24 mpg combined (21 in the city, 28 on the highway). The all-wheel drive model, for those drivers who like to venture off the beaten path, still does pretty well at 23 mpg combined. There is, like with the Escape, also a hybrid version of the Explorer! The RWD hybrid Ford Explorer gets 27 mpg combined.

The last SUV we will discuss here is the all-electric 2022 Ford Mach E! This impressive vehicle from Ford, patterned after the famous Mustang, does not use gasoline at all. The EPA estimates that it gets 103 miles to the gallon equivalent; this measurement system compares electricity usage to how electricity can be generated by gasoline. It takes 33 kWh of energy for the vehicle to travel 100 miles. If you're looking to save at the pump, the Mach E is the best bet out there.

Ford Trucks with the Best Gas Mileage

Just like with the SUVs, we're going to look at three trucks in this section. The first is America's favorite, the 2022 Ford F-150. The 2-wheel drive (2WD) model with the 2.7L V6 engine gets 22 mpg combined (20 in the city, 26 on the highway) which is respectable from a full-size pickup. The hybrid version bumps this up to 25 mpg combined!

The 2022 Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup, making it a little smaller than the F-150. It consequently gets better mileage: the 2WD model gets 23 mpg combined (21 in the city, 26 on the highway). It's just a little better than the 2WD Ford F-150, but that will add up over time at the pump.

The last truck we're going to look at is the brand-new 2022 Ford Maverick. This the country's first hybrid-standard pickup, although it does have a traditional, gasoline-only engine option. The hybrid version does better with gas mileage, however. It gets 37 mpg combined (42 in the city, 33 on the highway)!
