ReviewI needed a Big SUV but was afraid of the fuel costs. Ford's Turbo Diesel is the answer. This truck is incredible. At 7000 plus pounds, 11000 lbs. of towing capacity, the fuel mileage is equal to my daughters V6 midsize SUV. I am averaging 18+ overall mileage with power that you cannot believe. I mean this baby flies. I actually spun the rear wheels the other day entering traffic. Naturally, after I bought the truck, diesel fuel increased to $2+ per gallon, but I am confident it will settle back down to regular fuel prices. My friend's GMC Yukon XL gets 11 miles per gallon no matter what he does. Is he ever jealous!
Best FeaturesPerformance and Comfort. People are shocked by the trucks comfort.
Worst FeaturesThe diesel can be noisy on initial startup but after warmup it improves. Perhaps, if I had a complaint, it would be the engine noise. Perhaps more or better sound proofing could help.
