Honestly since you already have a 4x4 vehicle, I say go with a car for gas mileage. Something like an 02 Subaru WRX or an 03 Mazdaspeed Protege. Get my jist? Or are you just completely against those?

The F-350 looks good except the engine. the V10's suck gas like no other, so I would stay away from that. My next choice would be the Navigator, but I don't know what they get gas wise.

One thing about Mustang's... insurance is too high. I know an SS would be high, but not as high as a Mustang. I had a Z28 that was only like 150 a month.
