    Default 2012 Pickups With Best Fuel Economy Check it out...

    It looks like gas prices will continue to rise for the next several months, so here's a list of the most fuel-efficient pickup trucks sold in the U.S. for 2012, grouped by their combined fuel economy as determined by the U.S Department of Energy.
    Of course, you can find all sorts of global platforms that use smart and powerful four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines outside the U.S., but four our purposes we're sticking with those two- and four-wheel-drive pickup trucks sold in within our borders.
    The gas mileage numbers listed are the EPA's combined fuel economy numbers (average of city and highway driving). W have also listed the predicted annuel fuel cost for these vehicles based on 15,000 miles driven at a cost of $3.70 per gallon of fuel. Your exact fuel costs are likely to vary.
    In decending order of average combined miles per gallon, the results are as follows:

    I did not see diesels on that list nor did I see 5.7 liter GM v-8.
    1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.
    And other vehicles and toys.

    I vote ford, and chevy put a turbo diesel 4cyl in their small trucks! with a 6spd manual.. think a 4wd Colorado with a 2L Diesel, putting out as much power as the current 5cyl, but getting 25-30mpg.. and a V-6 or I6 3 or 3.5L turbo diesel in the 1500.. getting similar milage.. I would gladly pay $4 a gallon for Diesel (what we are currently paying) for one of these models over a gas model now.. Since they cost of these trucks is astronomical already i cannot afford a new truck and a gas beater for work. (i commute 50plus miles a day). I dunno i know i wont be buying anything new for quite some time in the truck market until they do to be honest.


    1997 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4X4 with 330K miles and counting (Hunting rig).

    2009 Saturn Aura XE (wifes car)

    2011 F-150 Crew 4X4
