V-8 is overkill

1998 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV AWD
Review
I bought this used 1998 with 100,000 miles on the odometer. At the same time I purchased a 2000 with the SOHC V6. The V8 increases towing capacity by about 500lbs, but the fuel economy is awful (8 city/12 hwy) compared to the V6 (17 city/22 hwy). This vehicle had its fair share of squeaks, rattles, and other unsettling noises, yet had a very compliant ride and willing performance. I'm happy to report no troubles at all with this truck (excluding the poor fuel economy).
Favorite Features
In addition to the Limited's Lincolnesque luxury equipment content, there is something very satisfying about the sound of a V8 with a low restriction exhaust.
Suggested Improvements
Fuel economy. This truck drinks as much as a 4x4 Suburban!
