havent seen those posts, and it would surprise me that someone buying a 5000 lb suv with a 6.4L motor would be trying to figure out ways to get better gas mileage, there are many other economical choices (mpg wise) v6, even 5.7. bottom line is dont buy an srt if you are worried about fuel economy.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC SRT

the 8 speed for me is entirely for performance.The 8 speed made a huge difference in this vehicle IMHO!

Haha. It was long before your time here, lol. One of the biggest complaints of the 2012 was that it didn't have the 8 speed. Back in the spring of 2011.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC SRT

I agree with those saying SRT owners don't care about fuel milage. And while the 8 speed trany may be an inprovement, I have been enjoying my '12 for almose a year now puting 6k miles on it. 15mpg = 400 gal's x $4:00 gal = $16oo, 20mpg = 300 gal's = $1200, $400 differance woppty shit.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC SRT

At 30,000 km/year (18641 miles/year), most on german highways, fuel consumption is interesting. - I said: Facts and figures. ;-)

Re: 2014 Jeep GC SRT

Sorry folks, I thought the GC SRT is in the U.S. have already been delivered and driven. I guess I was a little impatient. It's kind of love at first sight! And since you want to know more then!

Re: 2014 Jeep GC SRT

With my 2014 GC with the v6 im getting only 13-14 mpg combined when they thought i might get more like 19. given im doing mostly city ish driving, but still. So make the same comparison of wrong numbers to the str8 it could be like 10 mpg.

Ok. About 1500 miles into trip from loping along at 85 mph up to 140 so far it's at 16.5 mpg. What a hoot to drive thru twisties at 100 plus and track starts 4.9 in 0to 60 and not even an a avg. This beast will continue to improve( right now at 1900 miles on odometer)

Back home for the Fourth. What a great ride,17.2 mpg avg. no problems with anything. Everything works great on Ole Red , gas stations all had 91 octane and the mileage at end was right at 2500 miles for trip. Detroit built mine perfect as of today(just washed and detailed) no leaks,squeaks,rattles.

This photo is one were we were just loping along in sixth gear.
