I expect a few MPG city and highway increase over the last truck. Prob like 13/18, 14 or 15 combined. Real world 12, 13 mpg in the city.

Don't really care though, more important to me that they keep the 36 gallon fuel tank. Don't have to refuel for weeks.

And regular octane gas would be great, but we'll see with the ecoboost.

The ecoboost engines run on regular fuel, do they not? They may be nice engines but I think they are still supposed to be relatively accessible and down to earth.

The new motor has been buzzing around in daytona prototypes for a couple years now, although what we get in the Raptor and GT will be substantially different.

But yeah the Raptor V6 EB will share almost nothing with the current ecoboost lineup.

That in way might be a good thing since when it comes to tuning it could be we have a better platform for tuning for those that are looking into doing that some day.

What fuel does the new V6 run on?

My 2013 ecoboost Screw gets about 13 combined city/highway running 35's. No other mods. I'm expecting about the same or less from the new Raptors honestly. Granted, I live in Colorado where I do 80 on the highway and the altitude does have a pretty large effect on how the vehicle runs.

I'll sh*t a golden egg if the new truck gets better than 15 combined in real-world driving. If they are squeezing extra power out of the motor, it's most likely due to running a higher boost pressure which means higher fuel consumption for a given throttle input compared to the non-tuned 3.5's. Also means you're having to run premium octane fuel which increases the cost further.

depends on how the turbos are set up. The new motor could offer better performance coming out of the hole, meaning less revs to get her walking, which *COULD* equal a better fuel econ...
