  • Allikatzpop is right. There is no single "most fuel-efficient" truck out there. It's really just a matter of personal preference and how you drive them. You can order a new truck and put any engine, transmission, and rear ends of your choice in any truck, so you have to know what your going to (work) do with your truck to make the best possible choice of your options.
