Well, I dont know bout the new F-150s or Dodge. But I love my 250. It tows like a champ. And My Expedition couldnt tow my 28 for beans. I remember the older F-150s were basically the same as the Expeditions.

If anything, they would have to be dogs on fuel. I do like the new 150s. I just dont know if they would be up to the task. Local towng is ok. I guess

Bruce,

Never actually asked you about it but what year is your 250 and do you have the 6.0 or the 7.3 ltr motor in it???

What is your real world milage for the 1500 with hemi -vs- 4.7L 4x4's?

I'm trying to decide if I should buy one today (replace my Dakota) but am concerned after all the comments about terrible hemi gas milage. It would be my daily driver, with a 90 mile rt daiy commute. Have found two equiped like I would want at $25k (which I think is a pretty good price, 8-9k off sticker). Need to decide if I'm going to go look at them this afternoon or not.

When I referred to my bad gas mileage I was talking abot the old 5.9. A friend of mine bought one 3 months ago and his wife loves it and is driving it every day now. He said she is averaging 17 MPG and that is some highway and some in town. I thought that was a big increase from the old one's.
