Just to chime in about the original post... With my 2018 XLT AWD, I’ve been getting consistent 22MPG highway. If I never set tires off the highway, I can maybe push that up to 23-24MPG. That’s at usual cruising speeds, not 55. Mixed rural driving works out to more like 19-20MPG. Haven’t done any city driving yet, as I don’t do much. However... fuel economy was HORRIBLE the first two tanks of gas. Calculated, not just on the screen. The cyclone needed a little time to loosen up, clearly. Never had a vehicle get such horrible fuel economy during break in. It resolved about 250 miles in. Also... I have noticed that, unlike my previous Ford vehicles, running the defrost (which engages the AC compressor) results in a significant drop in fuel economy. 1-2MPG on the highway. Usually, the difference was not noticeable on the highway beyond a very slight reduction in power, whereas it was noticeable in city traffic. I’m wondering if they used a very large compressor due to the extra passenger vents. Additionally, as others have noted about temperature, and just like our Ecoboost Escape, we’ve noticed a significant drop in fuel economy when it is very cold, say below 20F. Interestingly, all my previous naturally aspirated Ford’s did not display this behavior, but the newer boosted Escape does. Clearly not a Ecoboost related matter, as our Explorer is naturally aspirated.
