Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Pickup Trucks


Trucks aren't know for fuel economy, but increasingly, finding a pickup that isn't a gas hungry beast is a top concern for many truck shoppers. So if you're looking for a good way to save money, both in terms of overall vehicle cost and especially at the pumps, check out this list of our Top 10 fuel friendly pickups.

The six cylinder Nissan Frontier can achieve a solid 17 mpg when packaged up with the either transmission, or drive-train. That's right, it doesn't matter which model of the 4.0 Frontier you choose, you're looking at exactly the same EPA numbers: 16 mpg city, and 20 mpg highway. That V6 gets 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. The V6 Frontier starts at $22,620 and while it's not the most fuel efficient, most powerful, or cheapest car on this list, it does offer a nice balance of the three.
