That's about what I get with mine.

whats the point of the v6 then?
could have a v8 with the same mileage couldnt ya?
a buddy of mine with an 03 ram with the hemi is getting 12, and thats in the city.
looks like thats a problem lol\
my ram with the 318 is gettin 15 city
my bros with the 360 is gettin bout 14 to 15.
never really heard of a v6 gettin that kind of gas mileage

Honestly, there isn't much point to the V-6. I got mine with it because of the deal I got on the truck when I bought it. The added power of the 4.7 would be nice but it's hard to ignore $1000 equity before you even drive it off the lot.

well damn, hope ya didnt get suckerred into that one.
i guess its not really a bad thing though, some of those v6's can take a beatin :P

I had that engine in a Jeep Liberty and didn't get good mileage at all either. It does have a great power band for a small engine though!
