My new 2011 King Ranch gets slightly better than my 06 King Ranch. The 06 had 3.73 while the new one has 3.55. Towing there is absolutely no comparison. The 2011 is far better accelerating and just plain driving down the road. The 06 had problems staying in top gear unless you drove fast. Then your fuel economy went away. The 2011 doesn't downshift nearly as much at towing speeds which allow good economy. I can't think of one thing I liked better about the 06.
