It's pushing a tall square Bronco through a fluid.

Also, from everyone who has owned an off-road vehicle before:

If I had a commute of more than a couple miles I'd never consider the Bronco, don't enjoy gas stations all that much. I'd also never have bought my Tacoma (which I think might get around 14mpg right now), just not economical IMO. I'd be in some Toyota hybrid cross over or similar instead, maybe get a used Rubi for fun. I don't have any commute except driving the kids to school and one is off to college this year, so what ever my car uses in gas is irrelevant in my case.

I'm still not particularly excited about the 17/17/17 mine will apparently get, I'd prefer more range, but I also didn't expect all that much more honestly.

Some here appear to have really long commutes, personally I'd not get a guzzler for that, commute around here is more stop and go than having fun on winding country roads. The later I happily spend gas money on, the stop and go stuck in traffic not so much.

If finances allow I'd rather get a used efficient car for a long commute that's not full of actual driving fun.

Funny... I just thought of something... Affording and being moneywise are two different things.

I can afford to buy a $200 pair of sneakers, But I wouldn't be caught dead doing so. Being financially wise is what allows people to "afford" things.

But many of you are correct, if I lived in my mama's basement and didn't have a family to raise and pay for, I could "afford" to fill the gas tank up every day.

100% to the point.

You should look into buying a helicopter to help avoid traffic!

Could have bought a lot of gas for the price of that Tesla :cool:

It is called “saving”. Saving for your child, parents, future, charity..etc.
If someone is keen enough on this that it influences their vehicle-buying process, they're out shopping for a Toyota Camry that they will drive for the next 200k miles.

This is a forum of people looking at a $30k+ BOF SUV (with bonus points for paying MSRP+ for a first or second model year), that is a 100% luxury (if not luxury car) lifestyle/hobby vehicle. There's very little about the Bronco that is "money wise" in the first place even before you get into the regular care and feeding of it, so you can't be too alarmed at the lack of empathy on here about getting cold feet over a statistic (and a very unsurprising one at that) and writing it off as financially irresponsible.

I don't pay CA fuel prices because I stay out of that place. I'm originally from there and loved the state, just not the people too much (except family).

DD is very much an option for me. Go where the gas is cheap, and be free to DD your Bronco the way you want.

Stop telling people to move to Texas. Its getting crowded here

My current commute is 8 miles round trip. $2 or $10 gas makes little difference. I am wanting to move out of the city so when my commute is 50-60 miles round trip I may have to reevaluate.

I’m fine with that number. Worse than what I was hoping for, but I can afford it.

For 17 you better have a 30mph gust pushing downhill cause every avg mpg by manufacturers are fictitious numbers
