What I meant was, if they drove it 2700 miles over multiple tanks and only got 19 mpg, that’s not that great since your best mpg should be on highway cruising.
Actually hybrids get their best milage in stop and go city/urban traffic.

My rep at the Dallas drive event said the loaded limited 4x4 got 22 on the highway, so if the guesstimate of 23 combined is close, it should get pretty close to 23 city, which is great compared to 16 which I believe is the city rating of a 2020 EB.

I have an appointment in Hurst tomorrow, I’ll see if they tell me anything else.

I'm going to try and go to Hurst tomorrow too, as the crew at FireWheel told me Hurst has a King Ranch.

For me, coming out of a mid-size Tacoma, the possible mileage and range are impressive. My Taco Limited is getting 14.5 mpg around town. I live in NW Arkansas, so I don't do traffic and interstates like I did in Atlanta. Moving up to a full-size truck and possibly gaining up to 8-9 miles per gallon is pretty astonishing to me.

The latest rumor out of Ford Canada is 24 mpg combined.

My '17 lariat 4WD 3.5EB got 15.7 lifetime mpg and 20.1 best ever on an all freeway tank. I don't trust the lie-o-meter, but dropping 10% of that its still 10% better than I ever got. If its that 10% better in real world usage I'm pretty happy with the PB setup. I'd prefer a plug-in with a bigger battery, but this will do.

I ordered a 2021 PowerBoost for the mileage. I have a 2015 F-150 and a 2020 Escape Hybrid and I get about 34 mpg highway and 46 mpg city w/ my Escape so I expect it may be the same case with the PowerBoost

Just registered here so perhaps the following link has already been shared. Here is a test drive video covering the F150 Hybrid (Powerboost), both being driven and then towing a 7,000# trailer, along with a simioar towing test drive of the new F150's diesel power train. For the Hybrid model, a 50+ mile rural circuit without the trailer produced a circuit mileage of 21+ mpg. There's a range of other interesting observations from the driver.

I agree after the 2020 Fusion loaner I had while my 17 F150 got some warranty work preformed. I achieved 54 mpg when I believe it was only rated up to around 40 mpg. Found that impressive. Even whooping on it I was exceeding 30 mpg on the regular.
