2010 SCREW XTR or FX4, what to buy?????
Background: based in T.O. but drive north every weekend for approx. 800 km round trip. I want good gas mileage & don't tow at this time but want to be ready for hard work garlic farming.
First I built and made a deal for a SCREW XTR at the dealer with: 5.4L, 3.55 LS, sync, trailer tow, trailer brake, defrost, power seat, reverse sensing, skid plates. Considering adding trailer tow mirrors (that I dont like the look of). I don't take care of my vehilces so chrome will never be cared for.
I now realize an FX4 has many of my option standard, I like it's tow mirrors and the lack of chrome. For a little bit more I can have more luxury and a heavier duty truck. BUT I am very concerned about MPG with a 3.73 rear end.
I need your input to make the correct decision for my needs.
PS: I hit a bear Friday night with my Passat wagon - did $6K in damage & the bear limped away!
