The highly-anticipated fuel economy numbers are in for the 2015 Ford F-150.

The highly-anticipated fuel economy numbers are in for the 2015 Ford F-150.

While we've always known the model would be more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, it's finally official as Ford has confirmed the F-150 will have the "highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any full-size gasoline pickup on the market."

Jumping right into the numbers, the entry-level model with the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine - that produces 283 bhp (211 kW) and 255 lb-ft (345 Nm) of torque- will return an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway / 20 mpg combined.

Moving up to the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine - with 325 bhp (242 kW) and 375 lb-ft (507 Nm) of torque - will reward buyers with an EPA-estimated rating of 19 mpg city / 26 mpg highway / 22 mpg combined.

The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 develops 365 bhp (272 kW) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque and will feature an EPA-estimated rating of 17 mpg city / 24 mpg highway / 20 mpg combined.

Last but not least, the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 - with 385 bhp (287 kW) and 387 lb-ft (524 Nm) of torque - will return an EPA-estimated 15 mpg city / 22 mpg highway / 18 mpg combined.

Update: An earlier version of this story suggested the charts could be interrupted as misleading since they compare the 2015 F-150 to the 2008 model but Ford Truck Communications Manager Mike Levine points out this was done because the average trade-in age is 7-8 years.
