Like its Chevrolet and GMC colleagues, the 2009 Ford F-150 is getting a new edition that puts its emphasis on improved fuel economy.
The new F-150 pickup truck arrives later this year already improved on last year's edition, with an 8 percent fuel economy boost across the lineup and a 12 percent boost on some versions with the 5.4-liter V-8 engine--while delivering 11,300 pounds of towing and 3,030 pounds of payload capacity.
The new SFE edition takes fuel economy another step. With a six-speed automatic, a final-drive ratio tuned for efficiency and low-rolling-resistance tires, it boasts 15/21 mpg fuel economy with its 4.6-liter V-8 engine. It's offered in SuperCrew XL and XLT trim, with a 5.5-foot bed and in rear-drive only.
The SFE edition will be free on the SuperCrew XLT with the chrome package, and $1,095 on XL versions with the "decor" package.
Stay tuned--in the coming weeks, we'll be driving the new F-150 and bringing you our full review.
