4WD- 15 / 22
This would make the Hemi 8 Speed one mpg better than Ford's Ecoboost on the highway, and would meet Ram's pledge to beat the Ecoboost in regards to fuel economy.
I bet the 23 is Hemi regular cab with the 8 speed though and yes 2WD...
This would be a fun game! Guess the fuel econ rating! If I were betting on it...I would say the city mpg will go up 10-15% and the highway 5% to at MOST 10% due to lighter weight of trans components and less parasitic power loss...so that puts my guesstimate at:
2WD - 16 / 21 and combined 18
4WD - 15 / 20 and combined 17
Of course that means it will actually GET about 17 combined (2wd) and 16 (4wd)...but I am thrilled about saving 5-10% on fuel per month and improved acceleration.
