I got lucky, kind of. when I got into a accident with my trailblazer I was already looking for a RAM. my friend is a drinking buddy with a manager at enterprise so I got a 2011 ram quad cab 4.7 for a rental instead of an econobox on the insurance companies dime. so I got to test drive one for a month. I did feel it was underpowered but I could pull 20 mpg highway according to the display. I actually avg about 16.4 mixed driving when I did the math at the pump. Which for a truck that size seemed ok especially since I never drive the speed limit usually 75 to 80. but since I do occasionally pull a trailer I decided the hemi would be a better choice. honestly I am happy I got the hemi but it does feel underpowered as well for the Ho claims from the factory. I think if I got a reg cab with the right gearing a 4 7 would be a good motor.
