But there is such a variance in what people are getting.

Crazy how much difference we all get.
Seeing how I had the same optioned 2010 and 2012 and they get the exact same mileage my guess its not the trucks and its the drivers/conditions. My normal driving may seem aggressive to some and wimpy to others. Plus where I live there are a lot of hills/mountains, different ethanol quantity, winter/summer blends, payload etc.

Not to mention someone someone who pays 6.00 a gallon for gas is going to be a lot more mileage-aware than someone paying 3.00 a gallon.

To be honest, as much as I like the hemi power, my wife's AWD Grand Cherokee with the new 3.6 gets FIVE mpg better average than her old Hemi powered Commander. Sure its no hemi but its not bad either, I bet combined with an eight speed the 3.6 wont be a bad option in 2013 if you arent towing or hauling a lot of weight.
