    The Ford website has finally posted the official numbers and they are good:

    17/24 - regular length (XLT, Limited, Platinum)

    17/23 - Max (XLT, Limited, Platinum)

    I assume these numbers are for the 4x2 but not sure, I couldn't find the 4x4 numbers. Either way, I think they are very good for a vehicle this large, and just beat out Tahoe and Suburban which are both 16/23 for 4x2.

    But really, why buy a truck or large SUV with 2wd? I understand some don't need it, but why not have it. Even for launching a boat or something on a steep ramp. 4x2 doesn't interest me in the least.

    For me, my 2wd truck has been just as capable as any other vehicle ive had, 4wd or not. My main reason for the truck is the comfort in both space and seating as well as ride comfort. Also, the space has also been useful as ive used the space available many times that no other vehicle wouldve been able to carry. Also, there is many a time i used the third row as well. Its true that we have a glorified minivan and if i liked how they looked id own one but i hate the minivan general look and profile(the pacifica and sedona are beautiful cars however). My dad has a 4wd truck but gets mad if you use it. I dnt see the justification of a 4wd truck to add the 3k. If i moved further north or was an offroader, then id reconsider it.

    I live in an area where 4 wheel drive really helps in the winter. But I have a friends who live in the south that always buy 2 wheel drive. In fact go look online at a Chevy dealer in someplace like Miami, the majority of their Suburbans will be 2 wheel drive. Same with Ford and Expeditions.

    In the northeast where I live, you would never ever find a 2 wheel drive Expy or Suburban.

    Launching your own boat? Peasant! Ballers keep them at the marina.

    4X4 is a $3K upgrade. I've probably put 100 yards on mine since 2008...

    Miami Lakes Chevrolet claims to have the largest new inventory in the area. 633 new vehicles. 30 are 4WD. Less than 5%.
    25 Suburbans, one 4X4. 26 Tahoes, all 2WD.

    And i would bet more than half these people don't need a truck, they need a van. Either way, just my opinion. I do live where 4x4 is a necessity, but i don't think i would buy a truck without it even if i lived in Mexico.

    I agree if your down south and never going to take it off-road why spend 3 grand just to lose tons of money in gas over the time you have the vehicle. It barely adds anything to resale.
