Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

We use our JGC mainly for road trips. Did a 4000 miler to NM/AZ/UT/CA in April/May and just got back from a 2500 miler to CA. Our next trip in Sep/Oct to the Florida Keys will be another 4k.

Our Overland diesel is fabulous on road trips, especially 70/75 and 80mph roads here in Texas. See 25mpg easy at 80mph....effortless and comfortable cruising and it doesn't even downshift going up some decent grades!

In the 55/60 and 65mph States (damn 'em! LOL) we see 31/33mpg at highway speeds.

I do use it a little around town but it's focus is really highways cruising. We are in a small town with the next nearest one being 22 miles away (it's just up the street in Texas language!) and we are an hour away from San Antonio on IH10.

As far as maintenance goes. Oil and filter changes (oil/air and cabin!) are a piece of cake and take just the time to drain the sump and filter housing and they cost me around $90.

Fortunately, my need for speed is met by my motorcycle....but the JGC diesel doesn't disgrace itself on the road and at stoplights. I've smoked the tyres a couple of times !

The Hemi is a great motor but we just love the diesel on the highway. It pulls just a shade over 2000 rpm's at 80mph and is in the meat of the torque band there.

Test drive the Explorer sport before you make any decisions.

Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

we do in fact have donks in the US. although they are limited in their demographic appeal.

definition according to urban dictionary:
Any POS late 80's or early 90's American heap (preferably an Impala) that has large enough wheels installed until it resembles (and rides and handles like) a Conestoga wagon. This is done so it sits up high enough so as to be at the same eye level as the Playas with real juice ridin in their Escalades. Adding in a bad candy paint job and Wal-Mart sub box completes the transformation.
With no money left over for necessary suspension and brake upgrades, the lifespan is limited to a few drug runs or the first Police chase, whichever occurs first.
ex) That donk is fly and ridin high.

You sir are picking a fight with all Texans with that comment. I don't mean the accent part, I mean referring to West Virginians as Texans.
I accused a mate from Toledo that he was actually from West Virginia, he didn't take kindly to that.
