Looks great and perfect for that white stuff it is sitting on. Still no snow here in the BC Okanagan but any minute now.

Your New Year’s wish will come true, Jenny! Our classic 21 is about 150-200 lbs. less than your nouveau 21, but we tow it with our 3.5 (non-ecoboost) Explorer. We average 21.5 not towing and 15.2 when towing. We travel at 60 mph, but you should do at least as well with your eco

Hi: jennykatz... Congrats on the LTD Ex. I took a leap to get a diesel puller. 31.5 mpg Imperial not towing and 25.5-26.4 mpg Imperial towing. Nothing to sneeze at Eh? Alf p.s. It's really a "Cowboy caddie"!!!

You can get great mileage with any vehicle if you use "Imperial" gallons.
One UK gallon equals 1.2 US gallons since it's 20 per cent larger.

Hi: gbaglo... There are less miles than kilometers so I'll take my next trip in miles. Alf
