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.

  1. “It BOASTS 15/21 mpg "?????
    That's like some clueless idiot boasting about having a 3 inch (long, not wide!) you know what!
    15/21 is LOUSY and WON’t CUT IT in today’s markets.
    Ford needs to get the SMALL or MEDIUM Sized DIESEL as STANDARD in these trucks, the Diesel is iDEAL for trucks and SUVs, a
    and a good small diesel could EASILY top 30 MPG Highway.
    50% better than the lousy 21!
    Ford used to sell almost a MILLION (900,000+) of this F150 POS every year,
    But, MARK MY WORDS, It should he happy if it sells HALF that number in the FUTURE.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Seems like they are flogging a dead horse! They should be using V6 engines and nix the V8's altogether. Ed's comments were also right on the money. Also bring back the Ranger in a decent and fuel efficient version.
