I mean I get like 12-14 in my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab, so I don't think I'll be disappointed with anything.

Anything 18+ would be great. I get like 14 in my convertible, mostly due to jackass driving habits but still.

Stock 2dr BL: I'll be happy with and expecting to get 20ish when on regular dirt roads/2-tracks. Not-hard core off-roading but those 30-60 mph open trails. With an extra 5g of gas on hand, that would be over a 400 mile range which is what I always plan on minimum. My Bronco Sport BL gets 27-30 on these trails above even the highway epa figures.

Content with 16-17, happy with 18-20, ecstatic with anything over 20.

Based on recently Bronco Life vid, I'm anticipating 18-19, so all good.

I certainly hope the average is around at least 20mpg. Aside from the diesel version, I would think it would get close to the Jeep Wrangler mpg, 20-23 ish. Anything 20 and above would be satisfactory
Oof. 16.9 ok?

My Mustang GT with a V8 got 21 in mixed town driving.
Wife's Expedition with the 5.4 gets 17.5 in mixed town driving.
New F-150 Crew Cab with the 2.7 gets just over 20.

4-banger Eccoboost with the stick shift damn well better get at least 21 or 22, especially with the tiny little fuel tank Ford it putting in them. Even with the steeper gearing, the Bronco is a LOT lighter than either the Expy or the F-150

Hint for those ordering an automatic - in mixed to heavy traffic, the F-150 with the 2.7 actually gets better mileage in Sport mode. Sport keeps it in lower gears, so the turbo doesn't spool as much. Ford's downshifting in standard modes are not nearly aggressive enough.

Whatever fuel economy it gets with bigger tires. I’m happy!

20 hwy would make me happy, 17 would be acceptable. Don't care about city mileage, even though it's the bulk of my driving it's still such a small number of miles that I only fill up about once a month now. It's the out of town trips that I feel the fuel pinch.

If I get more than 1 smile per gallon I'll probably have a permanent 💩 eating grin
