Brand new MKX today--250 mile return trip from Houston dealer, comp showing 24.5 at the end of the trip, running from 55-85. Instantaneous mileage was easy to get to 40+ just by letting off the gas. This is first tank, no hand-calc as yet. Traded in '08 Nav, I think my wife is really going to like it for size and quickness and the Navigation/dash technology is mind-boggling to an old man like me.
There was a lot left at 85--it is wasn't new, would have seen what it would do before I chicken out. Talking to salesman, he (lips moving) said he has had no trouble getting to 110+.
One of the biggest laughs available in the automotive world today is the 140mph speedometer on the Navigators--would be much better to top it out at 110 and spread out the spaces between the mph figures.
Tim, just came across this.... '08 Edge SEL AWD.....it is the wife's ride and she just drives it. She does not baby it or abuse it and with her normal back and forth to work (about 7 miles each way) the Edge will pull right around 20 to the gallon. It does have decent power and will get up and go. On a 2-3 hour drive on rural roads (no interstates) it will get around 22 mpg.
