I bought a 2017 Latitude 4x4 w/ manual transmission about a month ago. I haven't checked the actual MPGs yet- is there a way to display instantaneous MPG on the dash display while also displaying speed? My family vehicle (minivan) will show mph, MPG and distance to empty all at the same time.I have 2018 latitude w/48k. Never had this issue. Only issue I have is utilizing 6th gear. I have checked mpgs going 75 in 5th and 6th. Looks like 6 is for 80 and above. Is everyone averaging 31mpgs? I think it's the flat terrain around me.
I agree about 6th gear- it seems only barely higher than 5th gear, and really only useful for keeping those MPGs as high as possible.
Any word on if there has been a software update for manuals (as mentioned in the comments above) that would provide more power in 3rd/4th/5th gear? I find myself having to downshift A LOT when going up a hill on the highway. Of course, I do live in Colorado, so "hills" may be an understatement.
