They're f'n high. Driving carefully without passing ANYONE, I've never gotten more than 17.5 hwy in the 2wd beast, and that was just last weekend on a DOWNHILL with a newly cleaned K&N and oil change.

23mpg highway is awfully optimistic for a full-size truck.
We'll see what the actual EPA numbers become.

WOW, 23 mpg. I'll believe it when people are actually getting a 20% increase.

5% in the engine. + weight savings (just a little) + making it more aerodynamically efficient. 10% may be possible. 20% is a stretch.
