Ford F-150 to a Wrangler Unlimited?
 
ok, so my hubby has a 2011 Ford F-150 super crew with the 6 1/2 foot bed and the 5.0 V8. It is a very large truck. He has always loved pickups, and had to have this truck. He parks in a parking garage at work so this is sometimes and issue with the size. He did testdrive a wrangler umlimited before he got the F-150, and had a really hard time deciding. He also loves the wranglers. In the end that whole pickup thing got him!....LOL! Anyway, he drives about 120 miles a day and has highway driving no traffic on the way in to work and stop and go on the way home. He gets up to 20mpg on the way in and down to 17mpg on the way home. Problem is, he is thinking of getting rid of the F-150 and really would love a wrangler, but i think the gas mileage is pretty much the same.....:-( he really wants better mpg's, but I've hearing of people actually getting worse than that

Wondering if those are possible mpgs for the wrangler? Or maybe even better than that?

ahhh.....what to do what to do!.....:confused:

Sorry for the long post....LOL!!

thanks for the link! I checked it out and that is a great site! It looks like he might be able to get around the same as he gets now with the F-150 maybe a little better. I would just hate it if he ended up getting 14 mpg! LOL!!
well, when the 2014 Grand Cherokee's come out in like Feb/March he is going to check those out and the wrangler again. Test drive both and see
