looking for info on real mpg of the 3.7 s/c 4x4

Hi I'm thinking about purchasing a 2012 S/C 4x4 3.7L - just was wondering if anybody who owns one could give me some info on real mpg's, what kind of kms their getting to a tank-i think its a 136L tank. Thanks for any info in advance.

Welcome to fordtough.ca - great crew on here.

I think there might be a bit of confusion with your research.....the 3.7 L Ecoboost is twin turbo, not supercharged.

There's been a bit of discussion here on ford tough about the mileage with the Ecoboost ( I don't have one, so I'm not the most reliable source of info).

I've seen numbers from 10 to 12 L/ 100 km thrown around, if that helps.

Here's some reading that might help you out.....

I think he means the 3.7L V6 in a supercab. Ecoboost is 3.5L. As for mpg's I have no idea. But I currently have the 4.2L in a S/Cab and I will never buy a V6 in a full size truck again. I find my engine works to hard and in return burns more fuel.

I know these engines are different but I thought I'd give my opinion.

In line with what Dank_44 stated, you will not save enough fuel, if any at all, with the 3.7L to make it worth your while. Go with the 3.5L or 5.0L and you will be a very happy customer.

3.7 L , 3.5 L, whatever, bottom line remains that Ford does not make a supercharged V6.

I think s/c meant "supercab" not supercharged.
