Difference in gas milage between v6 & v8? And compared to 06 4.7 V8

I've currently got an 06 Limited with the 4.7 V8.

I'm just curious to people who actually got the new one. I first thought about getting the V6, but I keep reading people think it's not all that powerful, but I like the power in my current engine. I would like at least that much again. It's not a hemi, but it's still pretty good, and my gas milage isn't that bad, somehow. Just curious if the hemi gas milage on the new one is anywhere near as good as my 4.7 V8? I would hope so, since mines older, and you would think the new hemi would be improved. Any help would be appreciated.

I too had the 4.7L HO and now the 5.7L Overland. It's only been a month, but the mileage seems worse than the 4.7L.
Prior to purchasing, I did check a fuel consumption web site that quoted mileage for my '02 4.7L and I compared it to the mileage for a '10 5.7L Limited and the 5.7L faired better.
