Purchased 9/26/11 . No technology option. Got rear window package, floor mats package and side air bag package. Gas mileage is based on your driving habits. I drive speed limit and do not accelerate quickly. Get about 16.5 to 17 mpg in city and on flat highway, no wind, going 65 mph I get 21 mpg. This is with no shelving or cargo in back.
The inovations are great. See the ads .
Van is more quite on hwy and city roads compared to Ford E250. Stereo is so so. Cab area is good. Lots of room to stow your stuff out of sight.
Drives like a truck not like a van. After installing shelves and cargo van drives smoother and you don't feel the bumps as much. Don't know how reliable it is yet.
Cab space and fold down passenger seat. More space in cargo area. 273 degree rear doors. Rear sonar is great ! You can take this van into an automatic car wash ! Engine hood is great. No arm to hold up engine hood!
I can stretch my legs out completely while on a long drive.
V6 has good power on hwy when passing. Van drives like a truck. I got a comment from someone that thought it was a "pimped out van".
