Icon5 A newbie question about gas mileage in a king cab

I'd like to get a brand new Ranger when my '95 dies, but with gas mileage being my biggest concern I have a question.

Will a 2WD king/super cab with an automatic 2.3L get the same gas mileage as a standard cab with the same auto 2WD 2.3L engine? I know the king cab will obviously be a heavier truck, but does it effect the mileage? Thanks guys.

Yeah it will affect mileage a little bit, maybe 1-2 thats just cause of the more weight tho.

It will be heavier, but I'm sure you won't notice any MPG difference.

I could be mistaken but isn't the new 2.3L a little better than the older 2.3L in his 95 thus making it out like "Rolldogg" said? Milage wash??

Hopefully they still make them, and Ford is still around for that matter. HAHA
On a more realistic note, i think gas milage would be comparable or identical. Driving style-habits could make more of a difference. I think stickshift would be more advantageous.
