Need a truck recommendation.

I need a pickup truck that is: a) 4-wheel drive / AWD ; b) is a crew cab (we have a child who needs to ride in a carseat; and c) does not get incredibly crappy gas mileage. What do I want?

We currently have a 2008 Honda CR-V which is 4WD, and a 2004 Ford Ranger which is 2WD. (And a 2002 Ford Focus which I use to commute.) We need 4WD because we live in the mountains, and we need a pickup because we have to haul things sometimes. But it feels dumb to have three vehicles when there are only two of us, so we would like to combine the functionality and good mileage of the CRV ( so no V-8's!) with the utility of the pickup. We also have a child so the truck is going to need to carry all three of us sometimes.
It seems like everything I'm seeing either has an engine that is too big, or the "crewcab" is a couple jump seats in the back (which I don't think you can install a carseat on? or am I wrong?).
Does this combination of features even exist?
