It was my plan to buy a Laramie with the V6 last year but it was not available, as you know. Plan B was to then buy a SLT with the V6 but I really was not too happy about doing that because it did not have some of the features I really wanted. Then when they made the 8 sp tranny available with the Hemi and the MPG (city) went from 13 to 15 and the V6 was only rated at 17, I ordered a Laramie Longhorn. For the 2 MPG difference it was worth it to me to get the truck I wanted. I am very, very happy with the decision I made. The Laramie Longhorn with the Hemi is an awesome truck and I am getting about 15.8 MPG in city driving and about 20.7 on the highway.
