I had a 2012 Cadillac SRX with the 3.6 liter V-6/6speed FWD, and in the same driving pattern, with my MKC 2.3 AWD, the MKC is getting 3 MPG better (21 vs 18), and does 0-60 in 6.5 secs, whereas the SRX was 7.2 secs.

Probably the mix of city vs highway, and/or the temperature...been somewhat here in North Texas vs elsewhere. My mix is around 50/50 city/highway, and my city portion is not severe stop & go. Have also been somewhat easy on the pedal, with total 1,300 miles on it.

On a recent 1300 mile round trip, primarily at speeds between 65 and 75, our 2.0 did about 27 mpg on Florida gas (which isn't "winterized") and about 26 on gas from more northern states.

Also a 2.0 here. Low has been 24.5mpg, high 27.5mpg.
Most driving is 45-60mph 2 and 4 lane. Interstate running just under 80 I still am getting almost 26.

Planning to bring the boat back after Thanksgiving (2700 lbs.) Trailer is getting fitted with surge brakes that were not needed when I towed with the old Mountaineer. I will fire up a thread about this episode. If the MKC gets better than 12mpg and does not crawl up the hills, I will be quite satisfied.

Also 2.3, at 1300 miles, averaging 18.8mpg combined 50/50 highway/city taking it easy, and mere 16.1mpg driving with a heavy foot. Have yet to take it on a pure highway cruise, curious to see how much better I'd get.

It Better improve!

To note, it might also help to mention anything that influences how good or bad you mileage is.

e.x. # of passengers, cargo (and what exactly), towing, etc.
