Real MPG (2010)

Hi all,

Looking into getting a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee as my first car. However, I will be putting about 20-25k miles/year on it to work and back.

Just curious, I know EPA estimates show 15 city and 20 highway, but what are you guys actually getting out of your Grand Cherokee?

I guess 2008-2010 seem to get about the same "EPA estimated" mileage, but I am also interested in the 2011-2012 year models to see if the extra cash is worth it in the long run if they pump out much better mpg.

So, yeah, your MPG along with year and if its completely stock?

Nearly all of my miles will be highway...so hopefully that will help a little. I cannot ever see myself driving a little, tiny fuel efficient car...

Thanks all,

jagj

Re: Real MPG (2010)

I had a 2007 5.7 HEMI WK before my SRT.

I got like 8 mpg in Manhattan traffic.

Which in normal other city traffic in other cities relates to about 10-12 mpg.


And in my SRT, dont ask. lol

Oh boy. Hopefully all the highway and a V6 will bring those numbers up...

Re: Real MPG (2010)

I have a 2010 3.7L and I drive 25-26K miles/year. Highway is anywhere between 21.5-22, maybe 23 if feathering. City driving is anywhere between 15-17. I commute around the DC metro area with 60% highway and 40% side streets and I average about 17.5-18 mpg. When filling up at the pump, right now its $3.85/gallon here, with about a quarter tank left it costs anywhere between $60-$65 to top her off. WHen I bought the Jeep, however, I signed up for a BP gas card and I average $0.20 per gallon off each week(ish). This drastically helps and I can fill 3/4 of a tank up for mid $50's. My fiance and I also get gas points with grocery store purchases so that keeps it lower too.

I came from a Mazda3 which sipped gas (relative), and at first I wont lie it was a shocker. But after awhile you realize its not horrendous, its part of the territory of owning a Jeep. Well worth it in my opinion. I love my WK.

Re: Real MPG (2010)

If you're worried about gas mileage a WK would not seem to be a brilliant choice for pure commuting. Do you really need Jeep capabilities? If the answer for you is yes, then okay, great, join the club. And welcome!

Thanks. I've always wanted a GC. I like the way they look and I like the fact that snow where I live on my commute will not be an issue. As for gas mileage...there not as good as a car but seems better than a truck. I just wanted to get a feel of what the true mileage are because I don't believe in the estimates that are out there.

Re: Real MPG (2010)

The 3.7 is deffinately your best bet for fuel efficientcy if you want a wk, I got a 2009 4.7, I hover anywhere from 14.3-12.7 mpgs with a mixed highway to city ratio.

Re: Real MPG (2010)

the 3.7 is too weak for the wks weight so it is suffers in the mpg area for it. the 4.7 will get the exact same mpgs as the 3.7 so there is no real benefit to buying a 3.7. i am usually around 14 city and 23 highway but that suffers in the winter blend season so now i am around 12-20

I would have to agree, my 3.7 is far to weak for the weight of this thing and I could get just as good of mileage as the 4.7. Don't get me wrong I still love the hunk of metal, but more power would have been nice. Lessons learned.

i do know the 3.7 does what i need it to, including hauling. yes, more power would probably be nice, but the only thing i'd get with the v8 is into trouble. i'll save that for my restoration project.
