I have one with that engine in the family fleet, next year I get one and park the truck. The corolla and Civic rule on mpg though.

That left me with 6 gallons in the tank , we were laughing that we still didn't need gas after 650 miles on the road. Lifetime avg mpg is 19.5 with 46k on the truck, with 1000 miles of that according to the truck towing boats at 11 to 10 mpg. If you go much over 70 and have any hills the twin turbos will eat your mpg up.

Iím pretty much 75mph the whole way to work. Pretty flat, all turnpike. My speed is why I question the mpgís with the turbos.

If it's flat your fine, 75 any hills the turbos get hungry, ran up north when it was new so in was was watching it pretty closely , through tn and ky got it up to 23mpg , hit WV and left there at 17 . Through Pa, ny, ct, ri, ma got the avg back to 21. WV is unreal to drive through, used lots of turbo through there.

Do some careful and realistic calculations before going the route of diesel. You will pay more for the truck upfront and then pay more for the fuel and maintenance so you may quickly see any fuel economy savings go down the drain...pending how you use the truck, how long you keep it, etc.
At one time, when the price of diesel fuel was less than gas, the argument was easier to make but now I am not so sure.

I might give some serious thought to a 2.7, 2wd. Thereís a couple 18ís extended cab floating around my area at the dealerships. I hardly use 4wd now

Best for fuel economy is going to be a 2.7 with standard cab no 4x4. It'a also going to be a cheaper option, but the resale of it is not going to be as good (if you care about that). I used autolist to find my truck, it may help you to get a year or two old that still has the warranty but safe a bunch vs buying brand new. Up to you though.
