2005 Limited with the 4.2 The BEST I've ever been able to average is 19.5 and the worst was 18.0 I'm in sales and do quite a bit of highway driving and am very disappointed in the mileage I get. I also have a 2003 Explorer V8 AWD and have gotten 20 mpg on the highway with it.....It's ridiculous that an SUV with the V8 and AWD system gets better mileage. I love the van as it's very quiet and comfortable and can carry more with me, but I was expecting to get at least 22 with highway driving.

I have the 2004 w/4.2. City/mpg is around 17. We have got believe it or not, 26mpg on a trip to Vermont towing a pop-up camper. Just set the cruise control and let it go. Have had transmission problems in the past. Torque convertor crapped out ,had transmission rebuilt for 1600.00, works better than when new. A/C not working now, rear evaporator and lines rotted out. Thanks to all the damn salt that New York state uses in the winter. ( The lines run under the van to the rear air A/C.) Will cost another arm and leg to repair.
