I haven't had any transmission updates I have 16k miles on the jeep. If it's not raining or snowing what's the point of having traction control turned on

Maybe you should have the updates done before you complain about eco mode then. That is exactly what the updates fix. If thats the case what is the point of shutting traction control off?

It's a safety aid. One that could save your bacon in an emergency avoidance maneuver, rain/snow or not.

Turning it off does not change the shifting behavior or make it smoother.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

I'm at around 4500 miles on my 3.6L 4x4. The winter gas mix with a bit wider tires, same overall diameter, has bumped the mileage down to around 15.5 mpg, 95% city driving.

Hurts coming from a smaller coupe, but I'm not complaining too much.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

A mileage update. Took my first longer ride from KY to Detroit and back. Got 23.8 mpg running at about 73-75 mph going up. Coming back 20.5 with wife driving and headwind. All hand calculated since my GC evic adds about .9 mpg.

One heck of a lot better ride than my (former) Caliber or Ram 2500.

I get 15 city. That's a lot of stop and go with max speed of 45. On the highways I get 23+ at around 70 mph. With this cold weather i have taken a 2 mpg hit.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

On long trips I typically get about 25, and I've got 4WD. The key is to keep a constant speed and never use the brake. I mean never, unless of course you really need to.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

I have about 2500 miles on mine and with about 60/40 split on Hwy/City I'm only averaging 18.5. My EVIC always reads about 1-1.5 miles higher. I'm also in Colorado so the cold isn't helping at all.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

Update on my fuel mileage:
I just rolled through 1900mi and I've put 4 full tanks of gas through.

V6 4x4 20" wheels @ 40psi

1st 17.7mpg
2nd 17.63mpg
3rd 18.4mpg
4th 18.0mpg

EVIC has been hovering around 19.2-19.4mpg. I'd say I'm probably around 50/50 hwy/city. My last tank was 80/20 towing a small trailer with an ATV.

So far not really impressed with the gas mileage. I'm almost wishing I would've gotten the V8. I'm guessing it should improve with milage.

I'm in the exact same boat. I just hit 2,000 miles on my '14 Summit and have the exact same fuel economy numbers. I'll always wonder just how much more fuel economy I'd get from the 6 vs the 8. The low end "grunt" of the v8 is the best

What is the average temp where you guys are? If it is as cold as michigan your not going to get good mileage no matter what vehicle your driving. My wife wad averaging 20.5 or so during the summer. Same driving now gets her 17.5 to 18. My ram was getting about 16, now im down to 13. The cold weather will kill your mileage. If your still getting the same come summer you might have something to complain about but until then it is normal what your getting, especially on a new vehicle.
