Raptor mileage?

Does anybody have an idea of what kind of highway/city mileage can be expected from a Raptor with 5.4L engine?

Also, how would it handle on the highway and in the city?

i think it would get the same mileage as the standard 4x4 5.4. it's an offroad truck, but i watched Bullrun rally and the dude that was driving a Raptor said it handles great on the highway, being an offroad truck.

It will get slightly worse mileage due to the higher ride height.....

Like Ryan says the ride height will def play a part as well as the rear end ratio and tires. Your prob looking at 1-2mpg less in normal driveing. I guess the extra width will also play a part in worse aerodynamics.
