    This is pathetic. The best mileage on a pickup you can buy in 2014 is just over 20mpg? You could do better than this with a mini-truck in 1980. It's because today's mini-truck is the size of what used to be a full size back then. I understand that there are tougher safety and emission regs now, but cars have far surpassed what cars got mileage-wise back then.

    First company to come out with a right-sized pickup powered by a 1.6 to 2.0 liter turbodiesel is going to make a killing

    Unfortunately they only included gasoline engines in this list, for whatever reason. I still don't understand the point of making a list of the most fuel efficient trucks and then purposely leaving out the most fuel efficient ones.

    I wonder how the new Colorado/Canyon turbodiesels will compare.

    Isn't this just a list of ALL trucks, ranked by fuel economy? There's no way the Titan should be on a "most fuel efficient" list.

    Interesting article - The lead story shows the Tacoma with what 'appears' some good fuel economy numbers - but that's the 4CYL, 2WD, 5 Speed. Once you get into to what most buyers get @ 4x4, V6, Auto, as from the article "The V6/automatic 4WD returns 17 mpg combined (16/19). And unless you have No head wind, properly inflated tires and egg shells under your right foot, you're lucky to get those numbers! The Toyota Tacoma while a very decent truck needs "direct Injection" maybe cylinder deactivation, and something more then a dated 5-speed auto to improve this horrid MPG in the year 2014! Hopefully the 2015 Tacoma will have some serious MPG improvements? I won't speak for the other manufac since I don't own one, but I hear the Frontier same/similar as Tacoma for MPG!

    They just listed the base model numbers for all the trucks on the market. I like how they also show pictures of much nicer models that would never hit the numbers they post.
