Amazing fuel ecomomy for size....17.5 mpg overall, have hit over 20 mpg on 5 tanks, high is 22 mpg. 6-speed auto had 2 overdrives. see full Ford Expedition review
Ford Expedition Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2014 0 Seriously, what a pig. Not towing - mostly highway (over 400 miles worth) but some city driving as well - in 600 miles, we averaged 13.9 MPG. The car's computer appears reasonably accurate (as a rental, I do not know if it was really full when picked up but the second tank MPG was within 0.5 MPG of my calculation based on mileage). Yes, there were generally 6 passengers (4 adults, 2 kids) and the AC blowing (front and rear) to combate the Texas heat, but I was light with the thottle and it was quite flat. I am well aware no one will buy one of these based on gas mileage but this performance is just abysmal. Hopefully the next generation will improve. see full Ford Expedition review

It weights 3 tons, so fuel economy is not going to be great, but 13-14mpg in town and near 20mpg on the high way is achievable. see full Ford Expedition review

13 in the city, 18 on the road, not bad but a diesel would be better see full Ford Expedition review

The 5.4 L engine gulps fuel. Usually get 14 around town and best of 18 mph on highway if easy on the throttle. Probably all that can be expected of such a heavy vehicle with high wind resistance. see full Ford Expedition review

Fuel economy literally sucks!! I guess it's the price you pay for driving a big vehicle with all-wheel drive. I also own a new GMC 4x4 quad cab truck with a 6 liter engine. My truck gets better fuel economy than my 3.6 liter Traverse. Maybe I just got stuck with a lemon. I'm told that fuel economy is supposed to get better once the engine gets more km's on it. I doubt it will improve very much at all to notice any savings at the pump. see full Chevrolet Traverse review
