Ford’s Kansas City plant builds new, fuel-efficient F-150 pickup

Ford Motor Co.’s most fuel-efficient full-size pickup is planting its roots in Kansas City.

The 2011 F-150, which Ford says is the most fuel-efficient of its kind among any manufacturer, is expected to get 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 mpg on highways, though that figure still needs to be verified by the Environmental Protection Agency.
