Many car manufacturers today are incorporating an automatic start-stop technology into their vehicles to help stretch fuel economy. When the car comes to a full stop, the engine will shut off to conserve fuel during idle times.

Ford is planning to put this same technology into their F-150 pickups which currently get 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Come 2017, all F-150s with the turbocharged EcoBoost engines will get this technology as a standard feature which is estimated to boost economy by 7 percent in the city. Ford doesn’t plan to stop there. With fuel economy being a huge decision point for the consumers, Ford plans to incorporate the auto start-stop technology into their other models.
