I am very happy with my new truck. Owned the 2000 1500 4X4 and put 135,000 on it with only a water pump break down but it was not enough truck to haul 2 horses. This truck sure is, I didn't realize what a difference the bigger truck would be. I have the gas engine and it is currently getting 18 mpg on the freeway same as the 1500. Towing I get about 13 mpg. Lots of get up and go with the trailer when I need it. Still getting used to the new interior design, trying to figure where to put things like sunglasses,storage under back seats is better than previous design. Ford friends say my mpg will decrease dramatically at about 60000 hope they are wrong and just looking for something to pick at.
