Heartbreaking really. Since the poor guy sacrificed his career for some jeepgarage stickers and online community rep points

That's certainly not the issue. I owned a 2006 BMW M5 in the past and the mpg was so bad, it clearly affected the "fun-part". I wasn't pushing it at all and had to visit the gas-station every 200 miles.

And having $$ doesn't mean you have to enjoy wasting it. These days, a powerful engine doesn't mean it has to be a wasteful fuel-burner. Not anymore.

Look at the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Re: Any ideas what fuel economy will be for this pig?

Sorry old thread but.... Jeep is telling you what the mileage is.


Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency – an estimated 13-percent increase on the highway – and an extended range of approximately 450 miles on one tank of gas.

It's simple...do the math...24.6 gallon tank...450 miles per tank =18.3 mpg.

I believe them

Re: Any ideas what fuel economy will be for this pig?

If it say 5mpg......then that really means 3 or 4 mpg. Lol.

That stickers on the windows aren't alway accurate. At least not for me and I don't have a heavy foot.

If it can achieve a 15 MPG combined official rating I might just say "screw the wait for the 8-speed" and put an order in. I'm guessing 13 city and 18 highway since the last generation SRT8 ended production with a 12 city and 16 highway official rating with no cylinder deactivation. There's NO CHANCE of a 16 city rating since the Challenger SRT8 (lighter with 2WD) can't even do that (although it would be VERY nice if I'm wrong).

Re: Any ideas what fuel economy will be for this pig?

Yeah. 4 wheel drive does kill gas mileage and I see the point of an 8 speed transmission now.

Re: Any ideas what fuel economy will be for this pig?

Has anyone even done the math with the same car with different transmissions? One with a 5 speed transmission and the identical car with an 8 speed? I would doubt it is that significant. The fact of the matter is if you have a 6.4L engine the city numbers are not going to be that great no matter how many gears you have.

Re: Any ideas what fuel economy will be for this pig?

So... WHEN will we have the official fuel economy ratings on this rig? When we first see a window sticker? You'd think that the EPA would have it before then... (see www.fueleconomy.gov) I'm assuming that they have to be rated before they ship them...

Jeep touts a longer fuel range but all they did was increase the size of the gas tank. A 13% increase would be 2mpg at most, but the math does not add up (unless its Bush Jr math). I travel for a living so it was 70mph cruise set on flat roads for hours only to stop and get gas/food/leak and then back on the road again. The best my 2010 got was 250-300mpt. Now they are saying 450mpt...... somethings not right....

I put 24,xxx on my SRT in a year! I have had my 2011 Hemi since april and she has 11,xxx miles on her already
