I have one and tow 12,000lbs. Around town I get 15 mpg, highway 17.5mpg and towing about 11.5. I have a heavy foot and always seem to get worse mileage than what other people say. These numbers are real life and honest, no rounding up or padding it a little. You will love it if you decide to buy it. My advice would be to put air suspension on the rear and some guys also add anti sway bars which I have not done. You will not find another SUV that tows like the X. I can and have run at 80mph for long periods of time (until I got a ticket, cop couldn't believe I was going that fast). If you need or want an SUV, BUY IT, you will not be disappointed.
