This rear-wheel drive hybrid model is rated as the most economical, with a maximum city fuel economy of 27 mpg and highway fuel economy of 29 mpg. The EcoBoost's 10-speed automatic transmission helps make shifts smoother and more efficient, providing a wide powerband to achieve your performance and towing needs.
