So you are saying that some things can be better, depending on the circumstances.
Most of my driving (90%) is done on local roads with speed limits of 20 to 35 mph, or dirt roads through nature preserves. In almost 2 years, the computer on my MDX, says my average speed is 29mph. I don't think the Hemi would have been any better in those circumstances.
I don't care about mileage. I'll be getting the Hemi, Overland to get the QuadraDrive 4wd. I'll be spending more time on ocean beaches than dirt roads. I don't think the Hemi will do any better than the 6, but I'll be paying more for gas.
I'm just happy we all have choices, and mine is no more right or wrong than yours. As long as you are happy with your decision, there is no need to try to convince or put down people who have a different opinion.
In the end, it really sounds like you are trying to convince yourself. Good luck with that.
