For pickup truck drivers, fuel economy isn’t always a top concern. If you wanted a highly efficient vehicle, a pickup shouldn’t be your first option. However, that’s not to say that some trucks can’t be more efficient than others. The RAM 1500, for instance, is remarkably efficient for its size and power. A single tank of gas (23 gallons) can take you about 414 miles, depending on how often you drive on the highway. Check out more efficiency numbers below.
