Fuel economy: 21 city/26 highway mpg

The two-wheel-drive Ford Ranger (about $17,900) logs the best fuel economy in the pickup truck segment -- 22 city/27 highway mpg -- when it is equipped with the 143-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and five-speed, manual transmission. Fuel economy is compromised only slightly -- 19 city/24 highway mpg -- when the four-cylinder is paired with the five-speed, automatic transmission.

The 207-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 is available in two-wheel or four-wheel-drive. Two-wheel-drive models achieve 15 city/21 highway mpg when equipped with a manual transmission and 16 city/21 highway mpg when paired with an automatic transmission.

Four-wheel-drive models get 15 city/19 highway mpg with a manual transmission and 14 city/18 highway mpg with an automatic transmission. If you need a fuel-efficient pickup, buy a Ranger now. This likely will be its last year of production.
