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.
The Capt got it right. The 25mpg is for the v6. Technically it is a 1500 so Ram can claim it.
