Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

Personally, i dont think there is much of a real world difference between the V6 and the Hemi and this is coming from a guy with the V6. I've had my 14 Overland for a couple of months now and am very pleased with the mileage but i don't think i would be seeing a noticable difference had i got one with the Hemi. Of course i would have loved to get the Hemi, but i got an awesome deal on the V6, don't do any towing, and most of my driving is limited to short trips in the City so there really was no point. That being said, if i could have got one with a Hemi for the same price as the V6 i would have gone Hemi and not worry about the gas mileage.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

My 2012 4x4 Laredo has 18k on the 5.7L and if I run it in cruise at ~68-70 over semi flat freeway with one big hill (Altamont), I get about 22 mpg. That's for a ~80 mile round trip (out & back same route).

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

21 combined city/highway. Probably about 50 miles highway and 100 miles city a week.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

One last update to the mileage I get from my 2012, 5.7 liter Laredo 4x4.

I drive mostly in cruise at 68 to 70 mph on the fwy, so my numbers are probably high.

I just got back from a trip to Tahoe and back, about 550 miles round trip.

So, fwy to and from Tahoe and 3 days driving around the north lake and then some driving around both Walnut Creek and San Ramon on the way home. That's with 2 in the car, 2 sets of golf clubs and luggage, and 2 bikes on a hitch rack in back.

I averaged 20.9 mpg for the entire trip and if it was just the fwy portions, it would have probably been 22 mpg or so.

So while I get down to ~15 mpg when I just drive around town; I am happy with the freeway mileage.

So perhaps my results can help people decide on either the 6 or the 5.7L.

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

If your GC is like my last 2, the mpg shown on the dash is almost exactly 1 more than what it really is if you calculate it manually.
