DALLAS - With its new standard 36-gallon fuel tank, the powerful and fuel-efficient 2012 Ford F-150 EcoBoost pickup can drive nearly the entire length of California - from Oregon to Mexico - on one tank of gas.
Responding to customer demand, F-150 EcoBoost now has a driving range of 756 miles between fill-ups. That long-distance highway cruising range is designed to save F-150 drivers time by reducing stops for fuel.
"We know the majority of our customers use their F-150s daily for work or play. It's an essential tool that enhances their productivity," said Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing manager. "Reducing downtime for fuel stops can help them do their jobs more efficiently or get more out of their leisure time."
The 2012 F-150 EcoBoost 4x4, for example, can be driven nonstop from Atlanta to Detroit or from Houston to El Paso on a single tank of gas. It can go from Sierra, Calif., to Ram Lake, Ore., with 355 miles to spare. With only one fill-up along the way, the 2012 F-150 EcoBoost can be driven from Silverado, Calif., to Tundra, Texas, at a distance of 1,496 miles.
