Do any trucks\SUVs share engines with sedans?

As far as I can tell, a base Super Crew F150 costs 50% more than a Ford Fusion sedan, but only uses 13% more gas, while weighing 30% more, displacing 42% more air, and definitely having worse aerodynamics. I have claimed before that car manufacturers try harder with SUVs (and trucks). I just wonder what MPG a sedan with a 3.6L engine would have, compared with a truck with the same 3.6L engine.

Do you guys have any relevant information?

Or cat pictures. It is a slow day.
