Ha!

A 4x4, 5.7L Grand Cherokee shares sticker ratings with my '10 3.7L Liberty.

I call that great gas mileage! LOL

I also compare the rating to my 2002 Liberty... It's crazy, especially when considering how much heavier it is.

Haha... I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves...

I'll throw 'active exhaust (muffler) system' into the list of guesses... Though I really don't see it

It's strange, requires a new wiring harness, has never been on a Chrysler (though was almost on the Viper at one point), would provide marginal economy gains while effecting the SRT's beloved exhaust note... *sigh*

Well I suppose everything is relative. Without the diesel, if have to get the hemi, but given the option, it's a no brainer for me.

Hahaha... It's crazy fuel economy, but it's still hitting the throttle on my forged and boosted V8 that puts the smile on my face

Who said it would have anything to do with a Viper?
