I have a 2013 Tradesman single cab with the 4.7 motor. I mainly do city driving so I get about 13-15mpg which is a lot better then my 2006 chevrolet trailblazer ext I only got about 9-12 with that gas hog and it was a wimpy motor if i had to pass someone. My bank had a Repo 2012 Ram 1500 Express with the 5.7 I would rather had that but I couldn't afford the payments on it. The 4.7 has plenty of pep to get around people but my only complaint is at about the 30-40mph range the transmission feels really sluggish as in my torque just "dies off" until it shifts at about 42mph then its fine again. Anybody else have that issue or feeling when driving?
