I have a 2013 SLT QC V6 with 3.21 gears and this truck is great for me, mostly riding with some light towing. Normal is 21-22 local mpg and can get 25 running about 60 mph on a 200 mile trip I take quarterly. It's a great setup, drives great, shifts smooth.

0-60 in about 8 seconds - fast enough for me

Hemi does sound nicer definitely - but so does my wallet when it still snaps shut with all that extra money in it from not paying for gas LOL

I second this. I loved my 2010 quad cab sport Hemi but the gas cost killed me. I love the gas mileage I'm getting with my pentastar and it is still quick.

yeah, I'm very happy with this truck - the onboard computer says about 19+ mpg driving around town - 23 or so on the highway, I have a 2014 QC 4x4 8 speed pentastar with the 3.55 and anti-spin diff. Still being broken in - the real mileage when you fill it is less than the computer says (of course) - but I've only filled it once or twice so far (32 gallon tank) - I get about 17.5 city and about 22 highway and I drive very conservatively.

I know guys say they get better, but the computer is just a nice 'esitmate' - filling the tank is the real number.

The Hemi is only about a second faster 0-60 and I never drive hard like that so it's not an issue. Towing is fine too - I put my 2001 Ram on a trailer and this truck was ok with it - but again, I drive like a old guy, so ...

My truck is a 2013 quad cab tradesman two wheel drive. I put a 2 inch level kit on it and 2014 sport wheels. I am about 75% freeway and I am getting 22.5 MPG. I love it.

My Hemi (heavily modded) runs 0-60 is 4 seconds flat,
and easily gets 20-22 mpg highway when I'm not in boost.

rpm is only 1500 rpm with 3.55 gears at 60 mph.

...just sayin'

A matter of opinion. I was very pleased with the sound my V6 makes, with the stock exhaust. I couldn't be happier with that.

No need for the rudeness, grow up man.

Are you not the one who posted this?

I'm pretty hard on it in the city (13-14 mpg)
But on the highway, flat for miles without hills in central Alberta,
and the cruise set at 100km/h (60mph) I very rarely see under 20 MPG.
(Drive to Calgary is about 3 hours)

[click pic for video] just getting onto the QE2 heading to Calgary



also hand calculated after I arrived in Calgary put me at just under 21mpg.
(BTW up hill all the way, Edmonton Elevation is 2200' Calgary is close to 3500' above sea level)

To ME, that's pretty impressive in a 4 year old 4x4 with 20's/33" Grapplers with 3.55's


....that can Also do THIS at WOT :

I had a Hemi, it was a 2005 though. My overall average almost never went above 15.

What kind of performance mods have you done to achieve such a great 0-60?

As for mileage for the Pentastar, on a long trip like you've mentioned I can easily get 26 MPG. I once averaged 27.2 when I did a long 3 hour trip. My overall regular average right now including all driving is 21.3. I've seen that as low as 17(in the winter with lots of idling) and as high as 25. I do have 4x4 to.
