Tow/Haul, Manual Shift on V6

Can anyone tell me if the Tow/Haul button and manual shift are on the V6?

Also, what kind of gas mileage are people getting with the V6? Please indicate approximate mileage on your vehicle.

(I did a quick search on forum, but didn't see anything.)


Thanks!

Manual shift is available but not tow/haul button! I have 6000 miles on mine with overall average of 18.2 MPG with probably 60/40 hwy/city

Mileage on my V6 70th Anniversary is currently ~ 1750 miles.

First 3 tanks have been: 19.5, 19.7, 20.0 according to the EVIC and my commute is probably 60/40 city/hwy.

Re: Tow/Haul, Manual Shift on V6

I just put it in 4th gear and kept it at 55 mph on the highway. I averaged 12.5 mpg towing my 19 ft, 3600 lb travel trailer. I average around 19.5 mpg without the trailer.

Re: Tow/Haul, Manual Shift on V6

Thanks guys! I really wasn't sure which motor to get. My 2008 JGC has the 5.7, but it is a lease. Can't beat the fun factor of the hemi. We can't get leases anymore in Canada and was a bit apprehensive about buying a 5.7, as you never know what the gas prices may climb to. I don't do much major hauling. I mainly tow a 12' closed trailer with a sled, motocross bike or ATV in it (1800 lbs max with any). So, shouldn't be a problem. But, really like the hemi! I am still second guessing my decision...

Re: Tow/Haul, Manual Shift on V6

When driving on a 55pmh highway (vs. and interstate), I can actually get a steady 27.0 mpg if I put the cruise on 62. Drove 65 mile trip last weekend and from start to finish ended with an average of 26.4 mpg. Interstate is around 24, and in town drops down a good bit, maybe 17.0 is good.
