It used to be if you owned a truck that could tow anywhere near 9,500 pounds or offered a versatile interior large enough to store all of your cargo, fuel efficiency was one of those factors you just didn’t discuss. That is now a thing of the past. According to Edmunds’ list of the Top 9 Most Fuel-Efficient Trucks for 2014, it’s possible to have it all: Nissan’s Frontier and Titan deliver the performance, the style, and the fuel economy necessary to get the job done.
Edmunds compiled the list of gas-only trucks using the official ratings as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Nissan Frontier took the second place ranking with a combined EPA rating of 23 miles per gallon. The 2014 Titan sealed the list at number nine with 15 mpg combined.
“People have associated pickup trucks with low gas mileage for many years, but we’re defeating that stereotype,” said Vice President Dan Mohnke, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “We’ve worked hard to produce pickups that not only provide excellent towing capability and ample cargo space, but also impressive fuel efficiency. This recognition by Edmunds validates our efforts to make fuel efficiency a priority across all platforms, from sedans to pickups.”
