Most Economical Trucks

Below are the top 10 most economical trucks in combined MPG order.

All are compact trucks besides the amazing hybrid Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra which are full size trucks with huge 6.0L engines. The Silverado and Sierra manage the same combined MPG as the Toyota Tacoma - a compact truck with an angine less than half their size! This is an example of how hybrid technology works really well to make big engines a lot more efficient.

The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are also the only trucks on the list that have two rows of seats.

Ford Ranger

The most economical truck in the U.S. is currently the Ford Ranger.

Its position at the top of the list is mainly due to two reasons. One, it has a relatively small 2.3L Duratec 4 cylinder engine (which is good for 143 hp). Two, its a smaller truck physically than most of its rivals.

The Ford Ranger, now in its fourth generation, is largely unchanged since 1998. It doesn't look like Ford are going to invest in a next generation Ranger, but there is talk of a replacement for the Ranger, codenamed T6, which is currently being tested in the U.S.
