Re: 5.7L vs 3.6L Actual MPG?

Oh I forgot to mention this is all hand calculated mpg. NOT form the EVIC which seems to be anywhere from .5-almost 2 mpg high at each fillup.

Re: 5.7L vs 3.6L Actual MPG?

I average right around 19mpg daily driving in my 2012 V6 Laredo. A little less now that it's been cold and windy. My daily drive is about 10 miles of open highway mixed with some stop and go on the...

Re: 3.6L V6 owners: rate your 5-speed transmission please!

I gave it a 3/5. In some cases it works fine, such as when accelerating from a stop and you can go at your own pace and with the right throttle it rows smoothly through the gears. But when you have...

I have a 2012 Laredo X with the V6. I really like the truck so far, except the crappy shift programming.

Re: I take delivery tomorrow...V6 owners need your feedback

The V6 is fine. The transmission programming could be better and let the engine do its thing. Thats my only beef with the V6 powertrain. You need to stab the gas pedal sometimes to get it to...

Re: 1st tow with the V6

Yes. Total weight around 2650 pounds. I think most all vehicles struggle when towing near their max capacity. I would never buy a vehicle that I intend to tow the max. I prefer to keep my towing to...
