Update the transmission on my 2005 Ford Explorer xlt 4.0 l
What to update my transmission. I get fair mileage.
15 city. 19+ on highway. Truck is in good
condition. Want to see if I can get better mileage.
Have the towing package. Don't want to loose
5000 lb towing availability.
Buy a newer Eco-Boost truck or SUV. Changing the transmission to a new 8 or 10 speed is not feasible. You could change out the rear differential to a higher ratio but I doubt you would gain any fuel economy and it would reduce your towing capacity.
