Sometimes you need a truck to haul stuff in Coquitlam, but you really don’t want to spend more than you have to at the pump. Gas may be down from where it was just a few short years ago but you always want to make sure you don’t spend too much in case gas goes up again. Here are the five most fuel efficient trucks on the market today. Some of these may surprise you, but if you’ve been seriously looking over every detail these should be a no brainer.
To top our list we have the 2016 GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel 4WD and 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Duramax Diesel 4WD at 31 MPG maximum is both capable and efficient with their 7,700 pound trailering capacity. These twins can’t be had with the shorter Extended Cab or the lower WT and SL trims, but is able to be had starting at $30,170 for the Chevrolet Colorado and $35,440 for the GMC Canyon. These twins have a 2.8 Liter Turbo Diesel engine made in Thailand and used in the North America exclusively for these vehicles.
Right below that we get a full size truck with the 2016 Ram 1500 Turbo Diesel 4×4 HFE at 29 MPG. The Ram 1500 Is the only full-size truck to make it on this list and that is because of, like the Canyon and Colorado above it, it is run on diesel. Unlike the GM twins, to get this fuel economy you actually get the base level Tradesman trim truck with Ram’s “HFE” package which stands for High Fuel Efficiency in a quad cab. You get the 3.0 Liter with two wheel drive and a 7,950 pound maximum towing rating. Prices for this truck start at $38,880 after delivery and you just have to apply for car loans Coquitlam to have one pulling into your driveway soon.
The bottom two spots of our top five are again handled by the GM twins. This time it is the 2016 GMC Canyon 2.5L 4×4 and 2016 Chevrolet 2.5L 4×4. These trucks get a 27 MPG rating on the highway when properly equipped and come with a 3,500 pound towing capacity. The 2.5 Liter engines are the only gasoline engines on this list and are also the least powerful on this list overall. The biggest upside to these trucks is the starting price. You can get the Chevrolet Colorado starting at $25,885 and the GMC Canyon at $26,435. The configuration for that fuel economy magic number is the Crew Cab with the five foot box. That starting point is many thousands lower than the other trucks on our list but you also have lower capabilities.
If you want a truck that saves money at the pump there are many options out there. These, however can save you the most. If you can find a truck that fits your needs and your wallet why not go for it and apply for a car loan? These trucks more than likely provide enough capability for most of your needs and you don’t have to spend a fortune for a truck that will get the job done.
