Most trucks Ram sells won't even approach 25mpg. They are using their bare bones 3.6L 4x2 models to get that figure. Kinda like how fast food joints have the most perfect burger shown in commercials but when you get one, its just a greasy mess clobbered together.

I would bet the majority of Rams get about 17-21mpg, depending on what size engine, transmission, gearing, and truck size/weight you eventually get. Plus factor in your driving habits. And then the list of mods that can be done. A lot of "what if's" for everyone to get an individual mpg rating.
