I had a '02 Explorer for about a couple weeks and ended up giving that one back and got a '02 XLT Premium Escape instead. It's only a V-6 w/201hp, but it gets 25mph highway and 18 in town. Not sure on mpg while towing, but it has to be better than the big boys by a little...
I don't have a huge boat or anything realy heavy to tow, so the wife talked me into getting the Escape instead. I wasn't even going to consider it, but after driving it for awhile, I am very pleased with it!

I am in the same boat as Mr. Frich. I ordered a new truck for towing my race trailer and sleds. I have a '02 F-250 crew cab powerstroke coming. Oxford white and Waldoch conversions will be striping it once it arrives. It won't be here until early May and I am already getting anxious.
Plus I am getting two new race sleds for next season so I am really counting down until December. It is going to be a long summer but wife is due on July 4th so it will go by very quickly and my 3 year old keeps telling me he wants a blue Pro X. I guess I know what santa is bringing this year, a Pro X 120 done up in blue body work and yellow accents. He will be racing micros next year so it is going to be a blast!!!
Boots, like the others, i plan on getting about 15mpg towing...have had GM's for a long time. My buddy towed w/his '00 Suburban for the first time this year...towing a 4plc non-alum enclosed, he got around 12mpg. I work for a dealer who owns GM and FORD dealerships, it seems that GM has always had the mpg advantage over FORD.
Midnight, stay away from that car. My buddy owns his own garage and says that is one of the biggest pieces of junk from his view. One of the things he hates, is that there is apparently no adjustment available at the top of the shock tower. There were many other things he rattled off, but that one sticks in my head.
Its seems that more people in the forums own Chevys,me included.Ford sells more trucks than Chevy so whats the deal.My opinion is Ford makes more of a work truck and Chevs are more for pleasure.My 2 cents
