V6 or Hemi
 
I have a 2007 GC and plan on buying a new 2011 when my lease is up in Oct. Anyone have any info on the gas mileage of the two engine choices for a 4 wheel drive. I can manage about 18mi with a 4.7 driving it nicely most of the time :D

the hemi with the MDS is gonna do pretty decent...probably around what yor getting with the 4.7. But I believe the new Pentastar V6 is in the 22-25 range with 280 hp....so 50 more hp from the V6 than you have now and 22-25 mpg's

More Hp with better mpg's sounds good to me. Kind of worried about the reliability of a new engine though.

Hemi, gas mileage is important, but so is the towing capability.

the V6 can tow way more with a better hitch...even the current 3.7 does.

A Hemi will tow 3-4,000 pounds with less effort.

I don't have anything to tow so that's really not a concern for me.
