I just put in the reservation for a Badlands trim four-door.

My concern is will the 2.3 EcoBoost be enough to turn the 35 inch tires from the Sasquatch package? I am leaning towards the 2.3 for fuel economy and cost savings.

Where did you hear this from? I thought it was available for both 2.3 and 2.7?

With proper gearing (I believe its 4.7 for the 10-AT and Sasquatch Package) I imagine the 2.3EB will be able to turn those 35" tires decently. But I wouldn't expect it to be a rocket by any means. Only time will tell for sure.

EDIT: fixed the gears.

Its a 4.7 gear both front and rear for the Sasquatch.

4.7 gears come with the Sasquatch package which is only available with the 10 speed auto.

Ask the Suzuki samurai community about turning huge tires with a tiny engine. The Suzuki stock is under 60hp and people throw 36 inch tires on them all the time. All it takes is proper gearing, the 2.3 eco will be great.... Not as great as the 2.7, but really good.

Yep, I'd guess that the biggest factors will be , in no particular order:
the increase of tire/rim weight, added rolling resistance from wider tires, added drag(wind resistance) from the lift/extra overall height(larger frontal area).
I think I just listed the top 3 things that will kill fuel mileage on any vehicle.

So yeah, if you are looking for fuel mileage, stay FAR away from the samsquatch. Stay with those skinny 255 tires and no lift..... or go nuts with all of that and buy an Ecosport for a daily driver!
