It looks like real world mpg for those who drive faster than 55 mph on highways is around 19. To actually get the advertised, 23 mpg, one would need to be driving 55 mph or less on a U.S or State Route with no stop and go traffic. No reports have been made on city mpg.


Given that the truck is larger all around than the Ranger it replaced and added a full rear seat, 19 mpg is not an unreasonable number. My 2011 4X4 XLT Supercab gets only slightly less.


No truck is going to get car mpg, if that is what you are shooting for. The closest you might get is with a Government Motors Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon with a diesel, assuming you want to pay the diesel upgrade cost and more expensive routine maintenance that comes with a diesel. I think they are supposed to get something close to 30 mpg.

Considering that the OVER OPTIMISTC EPA sticker for your car is 16 city and 24 hwy, I would say buy a calculator.
Do you drive 45 mph downhill all the time?
If you get 26 mpg from a 4000 lb 4.6L Crown Vic then you should get between 35 and 40 mpg from a 2.3L ecoboost Ranger. LOL

Keep in mind it will probably want 93 all the time, so the fuel efficiencies will be negated by the price tag of fuel.

I finally got my custom ordered truck. It's only been about a week, so I'm still working through and getting familiar with the truck. On the fuel, it only requires 87 octane. They do recommend bumping up the octane if you are going to be doing heavy hauling or towing to get the pest performance and power. So for, I haven't found the power to be wanting.


Length wise, it's about the same as my 2011 extended cab. It is wider. I'm not a huge fan of how small the rear window is but I'm used to using my mirrors. So the limited rear visibility out the back window isn't a huge problem. Worse comes to worse, there is the back up camera.


Room wise, it is much nicer. While I don't mind the tight quarters of the older models, the added elbow room is real nice to have with the new one.


The truck is taller. That in itself is a mixed bag depending on what you are considering at the moment.


Overall, I'm not regretting the decision to buy one.

Interesting that they run the 2.3T on 87. It is detuned so I suppose it makes sense.

I have never understood all the folks on here that say the sticker mileage is "over optimistic". If you can't beat the sticker then maybe you could change your driving habits?

https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/18871.shtml

I routinely get 30 mpg out of my regular cab 2003 2.3l 5-speed stick. Hell, when I recently got a tank that averaged 27+ I reached down while still at the pump and felt the right front wheel was pretty hot. Yep, brake was hanging up a bit and I still beat the "over optimistic" EPA sticker. And that's driving both down hill and up.

Fixed the brakes and now I'm back to 30 mpg.
