I am going to be picking up another vehicle within the next year. I want it to be able to tow my truck/car and get decent gas mileage. I also want it to be used, less than 3 years old.
I have been leaning towards the new 2011 F150, 5.0 V8, Super Crew. I have read up on it and it seems to get around the same gas mileage as the EcoBoost, with less of a fluctuation in MPGs. Keeping the truck out of boost seems very important for high MPGs. The F150 is awesome inside and out, and it will be able to tow efficiently when I need it.
My Girlfriend will also be driving this vehicle and she would prefer an SUV. I like the new options on the 4Runner Trail. Would the 4Runner would be enough when towing my truck and trailer?
In the price range of >$40,000, what daily drivable, tow rigs, would you be looking at?
