This might be an interesting article to follow for the next 30 days for those interested in the V6 Pentastar.

I have a '13 1500 ST Quad Cab, 4x2, 3.6 V-6 w/8speed and 3:21 LSD.

I needed the truck bed, but won't be doing any heavy towing. I bought it for the gas mileage.

I've had it for 3 weeks, 1800 miles and quite frankly I am impressed with this engine/tranny combination.

It seems to have good power for a truck with a V-6. At 450 miles, I took an 900 mile road trip. I averaged 23.8 MPG at freeway speeds of 75-80 mph. My around town mileage has been averaging 19.7 mpg.

So far, I'm completely satisfied with the power & performance.

Just an FYI.... 2008 to 2011 I owned an '08 Ram 3500 quad cab diesel, DRW, 4x4. I downsized when I sold the big trailer.

My mileage is around a 19 average so far through 900 miles, but I havent had nearly as much highway driving as I usually drive since I bought this truck. When I'm on the highway I notice it averages about 22 to 24.

Default SLT with 20" wheels

Any SLT v6 owners get the "ATZ" sales group with the 20" wheels listed? "Arietem" has stated he selected option "WRE" painted 20"s. The "ATZ" sales groups has the first line in the option is "20" chrome wheels". Chrysler says this option moves you up to the Hemi. I know for fact that there is a truck at a local dealor but it has 17" chrome clad (ok but not what I want).

Well, I hope you have success with it. I test drove a SLT a few weeks back and was happy with the fuel milegae even though it was not broke it (22.3mpg mixed driving). However, I did not like the 17" chrome wheels. I have searched dealors for SLT and found none that have had 20" wheels to date. Perhaps that is not something most would want.

Keep us updated once your truck arrives.

You got it, I post details as soon as it arrives. Liked the look of 20's and the dealer said no issues with ordering the 20'- the painted aluminum is reasonable for me.

I had my 2010 with the 32 gal tank for 3 years, it's a non-issue as far as the sending unit is concerned.
