The Ram 2500 HD Cummins has come out on top in a recent fuel economy test conducted by PickupTrucks.com.
For the test, pickup truck manufacturers sent over their top-end diesel powered pickups and PickupTrucks.com put them through a variety of tests, both unloaded and with a payload.
The 2017 Nissan Titan XD and its 5.0-liter Cummins V8 scored the highest fuel economy rating with no payload on board at 19.3 MPG combined, though the Ram was close behind with 19.2 MPG. The Ram was the standout perfomer when it came to loaded fuel economy, however, with a winning result of 13.1 MPG.
To determine the winner of the test, PickupTrucks.com averaged each truck’s loaded fuel economy and unloaded fuel economy figures. The Ram’s average was 16.2 MPG, while the Nissan’s was 15.4 MPG. The Ford F-250 returned 15.2 MPG, while the Chevrolet 2500 LTZ was last with a 15.1 MPG figure.
