Your math doesn't even make sense. Where did you read that? EPA said 24 combined for v6 4x4

I think you mean 18 city, 25 highway and 20 combined. I find it interesting that the 2.4 and 3.2 have almost identical mileage ratings for the TH. The 2.4 has slightly better in-town.

Re: EPA ratings

I just found out you can customize the fueleconomy.gov settings to your individual driving. The default is a 50/50 split between city and highway.

When I put in my personal settings of about 30/70 city/highway. The combined average is 22 MPG for a 3.2L TH in that situation.

The 2.4 probably has trouble moving the TrailHawk's extra weight at highway speeds. The 2.4 and the 3.2 also have different rear axle ratios.

The only extra weight in the trail hawk would be skid plates and bigger tires, your biggest drag will be the 1 inch higher stance, more wind resistance for a already underpowered engine.

Don't forget tire rolling resistance. The ATs on the TH will have a higher resistance than the fuel savers on the other Cherokees.

Yeah, forgot about that, I was mainly saying the weight difference isn't that big, and the locker doesn't add any weight.

Re: EPA ratings

Thats a big difference for tires, little higher stance, and skid plates... For the price they are charging for it you could have a grand cherokee and get the same mileage.

True but you will not have the same capability.
