Gas prices are tickling the $3-per-gallon
mark across the nation, but if you’re in the market for a pickup truck, we’ve listed the
nine most fuel efficient trucks for 2018. No. 9: Toyota is notorious for its fuel-efficient
vehicles, but you couldn’t be further from the truth with the Tundra, which only musters
up just 15 mpg city, 19 mpg highway, and 16 mpg combined. No. 8: The Nissan Titan pulls up the next
to last in our list, with the pickup’s 5.6-liter engine that delivers just 15 mpg city, 21
mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined. No. 7: The 2018 Ram 1500 falls from first
to nearly worst in fuel efficiency without the 2017 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, delivering
just 17 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. No. 6: The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra
use non-turbo base engines, leaving a bit of a gap in official EPA testing. These GM cousins deliver up to 18 mpg city,
24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. No. 5: The Nissan Frontier has been in the
midsize pickup game for some time now and is long overdue for an overhaul. Its base four-cylinder engine delivers up
to 19 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 21 mpg No. 4: The 2018 Toyota Tacoma leaves a lot
to be desired in terms of fuel economy. The base four-cylinder engine delivers 20
mpg city, but the 3.5-liter V-6 takes the top spot on the highway at up to 24 mpg and
matches the four-pot’s up to 21 mpg combined rating. No. 3: The Honda Ridgeline rolls in at No.
3 on our list. While its in-city fuel economy is only 19
mpg, it delivers 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined ratings. No. 2: The Ford F-150 delivers up to 20 mpg
city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined — not too bad for a pickup that you can actually
use like, well, a pickup. No. 1: Is it really a shocker that one of
the smallest pickups on our list is also the most fuel efficient? The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon top
our list with a thrifty 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined.
