From 3.6 L to 6.4 L

Hi Everyone, well my warranty is up on the 2013 and I'm close to 100,000KM.
Looking at trading in for the SRT, same year 2013/14.
Main concern is fuel, obviously I'll be emptying the wallet a bit more, but apart from the obvious changes, power, style , etc.
I'll be towing a caravan 4 times a year 1250kg loaded, how's fuel?
Anyone done this? and what's your feedback?
Thanks

Re: From 3.6 L to 6.4 L

Well I guess the first thing to say is you don't really buy a SRT and be concerned about fuel in the same sentence.

But with that said, I personally don't find it too bad. I don't always plant the foot. I don't tow but highway can be 10 - 12L/100km. Mind you my SRT has only 36700km on it and the engine is still tight. Fuel will get a little better over time. I have shed some weight by removing the spare as I have run flats and went to aftermarket wheels which were lighter than the spider monkeys.

Around the city I can see anywhere from 16 to 19L/100km, depending traffic and driving style.

Hope this helps a little.

J Wood, thanks for your input, interested in how's it run in ECO with the 4Cyl's
Everything so far I've watched/read has mentioned how thirsty it's been.

Re: From 3.6 L to 6.4 L

I love the SRT's and was also considering them before I bought my 14 JGC limited. Like you, fuel was a factory to keep in mind. I don't tow anything other than my dog and the only rocks I climb are the ones in my driveway. I guess as I age I get more practical.....I hate it

If you plan on towing I'd go for the 2014, not 13 for the 8 speed.

Are you talking about the 3.6 vs 5.7? Because the V6 gets a lot better MPG than the 6.4 lol

That's a good question, just did a trip but I keep forgetting the eco button.

But I have heard people say there is a weird vibration running on 4 cyc (?)

Decreasing weight does help with decreasing fuel usage, so Im not sure where that comment is coming from.

Ive removed the tyre for city usage..not gotten rid of it for long hauls across highways. If I have a major issue with a run flat I have road side assist to fall back on.

Cheers

It's about decreasing weight..less weight more efficent fuel usage. With my aftermarket wheels and removing the spare wheel Ive saved over 40 kg. Might not seem much but it has made a difference on fuel around town.
