Where the ecoboost seems to shine is on non towing at 60 mph consistently getting 21 mpg. Unfortunately i don't do a lot of highway miles unless i'm towing but i'm very pleased with it so far.
21mpg at 60 doesn't sound all that groundbreaking to me. I could do that in my '05 Ram. Problem is, on the Phoenix highways, if you are doing 60 you might get shot! LOL
It's good to get some real person #'s on it though. The advertised #'s look too good to be true. Unfortunately, I can't afford one of those now. Or fortunately, depending on how you look at it. (I was raised a chevy man)
