2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test


2012 Ford Explorer XLT: Guess the Highway Mileage

October 31, 2011

Took a nice long drive to Las Vegas today to cover the SEMA show. Figured it would be a good test of our Explorer's real world highway mileage. This is what the instant fuel mileage indicator looked like on a relatively flat stretch with the cruise control on. Care to guess what the overall average was for the roughly 300 mile trip? Keep in mind, the highway to Vegas is rarely flat.
