The F-150 would be a good choice...if it fits in the garage. We had to rule that out early on, as it was longer than our 19 ft garage (that's 228 inches... the crew cab is 231.9) The Durango, at 200 inches fits in, just barely! I don't know if we just have a really short garage, or if this is a problem for all crew cab owners. But, living where there's frost and snow, I want my vehicle inside, thank you very much!

Same boat here. For a a family of 7, pickup was not a good solution. Needing a larger (but wife didn't want too large) vehicle for the kids and their car seats, but still the majority of the time it's not pulling anything, so we wanted to watch the mpgs also.
For what it is worth, the Safari (4.3l v6) has 5100 lb capacity, my x18d weighs in at 3600 lbs empty. Loaded up, I'm getting about 11-12 mpg at 60 mph.

Never paid close attention to the mileage numbers, but these F150 numbers here are not correct. A 4x4 ecoboost is in the 15 mpg city / 22 mpg hgwy range, combined 17 mpg. Not bad though for the size of the truck and engine, but nowhere near 30 mpg, lol.
