My 2.7L EcoBoost gets 22mph driving around town and so far, it suits my needs perfectly. Love your 21'
No, We have the 3.5 without the Eco-Boost and get 21.5 mpg combined hwy/city. We have 5000# towing and 500# tongue, so I know we are pushing our limits with the 21. We have the Tow/Haul Mode, really like the Explorer and aren't in a hurry, so I think we will do fine. But only time will tell.
This is exciting for you too. Anticipation is so much fun. I'm anxious to see how you do with the 2.7 Eco. I expect you'll have no problem.
