One of my issues with the eco was mileage. On the Ford forum like here you here mileage anywhere from 12 to 23. Honestly, the hemi is a bit better on mileage (8 speed) but it is close by maybe 0.5 mpg driving the same route to work. I only have 600 miles on the ram so that will improve a bit. I babied the eco trying to get every last mpg I could and that made the truck less than fun to drive. I dont baby the ram and love the hemi sound. The 8 speed is smooth as silk and if mileage is important the active grill louvers will improve the engine and transmission warm up time in the winter. Other things I like about the ram is the higher quality of the leather, sport looks, touch display, headlights, im happy. Glad I went back to mopar even if I did get killed on trade $'s.
I did the exact same thing and for the same reasons. I am very happy now
