I'm new to this post - was looking at F-150's for a while until Gas prices went nuts.

I've been doing a lot of research and I've narrowed down to the Frontier.

I need a 5,000 pound tow rating (Has it)
I need reasonable gas mileage (V6 4.0L 265HP does it for me)
I like the styling
I like to sit high (Currently have a Focus ZX3 - GREAT Mileage)

Gas mileage says 16/21 - What are the real mileage facts?
What kind of gas does it require (PLEASE tell me Regular!)
Towing: Does anyone tow with this truck?
If yes, how much weight? What are you towing? I'll be towing a pop-up camper (3,500 lbs approx)
What kind of pricing are you folks getting?

I wish it came in Green!

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Well I can answer a couple a questions!!

Gas Milage: Is pretty true to the sticker from what I have experienced. I drive the truck really hard and in quite a bit of traffic. I average about 17 mpg.

I use 87 octane here in Colorado (which is middle grade here but low grade everywhere else) and i don't think it will perform much better on premium gas.

I don't tow much but I would guarantee that you will have no problems towing your 3500lb Camper.

I paid just under $25,000 for my NISMO 4x4 King Cab. Which I'm not sure is a good deal, average or bad. It was $26,500 oor so on the sticker

Well hope this helps and welcome to the forum!!
