I "upgraded" from an '08 QC Big Horn which had the HEMI to my current truck, which is a '10 CC Sport, also with the HEMI, and I don't regret it for a minute.

The 4th gens were done right when they were redesigned. The ride quality of the 4th gens versus the 3rd gens is like night and day. They ride pretty much like a car, but have the versatility of a truck. Both of my truck were two wheel drive, with stock suspension along with stocks wheels, so that may be a factor as well. My '08 had the crappy Good Year tires, I've replaced the crappy tires on my '10 with Cooper Discover HT Plus tires and I haven't looked back.

I've taken my '10 on several road trips, and it has always been comfortable, with plenty of room for all. I live in the northwestern corner of Louisiana, and I've driven it to New Orleans twice (about 6 hrs), Galvaston, TX once (about 8 hrs) and to Atlanta, GA (11 hrs). On the interstate dependent upon my speed I got 19-21 mpg and around town I tend to get around 12-14 mpg. The HEMI is highly dependent upon how you drive. If you baby it, you'll get a lil better mileage, but if you put your foot into it, it'll suck up the gas.

Hope that this helps
