5 speed makes a big difference when doing highway driving---better gas mileage--

Oh,yea----The 5 speed might be OD(over drive) which lets you cruse at 65 at low rpm---I had that trans in a 1976 van---

Depends how you are using it. If you drive it like a truck, I would take the I6 (300 cu in aka 4.9L). It will out pull the 302 and give better gas mileage.

I agree---the 302 stock engine is not to impressive---I like the 300cid 6----the 302 can be souped up a lot---

F150 1/2 ton

F250 3/4 ton. Go diesel if you want to play with the big boys.

Really, if you're concerned about fuel mileage, you're shopping in the wrong category. My 98 GMC Sierra K1500 4x4 with a 350 will get 16 on the highway, which is about what you'll get in any of the trucks you're looking at. If I were you, I'd get a 96 F-150 extended cab with a 351 and call it a day. Great power and reliability, acceptable fuel mileage.

And then do what I did, buy a 2013 Ford Focus. You can't argue with 160 horsepower and 38 miles per gallon.
