1. Toyota Tacoma 2.7L 2WD: 22mpg
The small engine version of the Toyota Tacoma takes home the trophy today. Earning a combined 22mpg this small pickup starts at $16,875. That’s just for the 2WD version, which has an outstanding (for a pickup) 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. There may be more powerful options in this list, since the Tacoma only has 159 hp, and 180 lb-ft. of torque, but nothing is as fuel-friendly as this Tacoma.
