took my first road trip in my '22 Limited Eco. Southern California to Denver, Co towing a fully loaded 12' Cargo Trailer. Averaged 16.5 mpg at above-posted speed limits. Truck ran like a dream. Because of the trailer, we took the long way through Flagstaff, Albuquerque etc. The truck had plenty of power and I was able to accelerate up hill without any problems.

Coming home via I-70 to I-15, no trailer, averaged 26.5 mpg. During about half of the 1046 miles we were headed into a storm front. Rain and snow. Truck bed was empty so my fear was that the back end might slide around some. I hit one small patch of ice on the shoulder- the back end slid just a bit and recovered nicely. I bought fuel in Cedar City UT and still had almost half a tank when I got home to Mission Viejo. Pretty solid, especially given that I don't really drive to maximize mpg.

I am at about 6K miles now. Zero problems. Super happy with my rig. Great handling, great power, great comfort. IMG_1816[1].JPG

I love my ED and it is the best thing I’ve ever traveled in bar none. I have a 2014 Laramie Longhorn with all the bells and whistles. My intent is to keep up the maintenance and repair anything that needs repaired and make this the last pick up I ever buy.
