While I love a big engine with these gas prices I gotta ask if you guys are delusional. I'm not much on Liters so I can only guess this would be like a 400CID, and that would eat gas like there is no tomorrow. I had a 75 Pontiac with a 455CID and I couldn't even make a trip to Vegas from the LA Basin (5 hours trip all highway) without having to fill up twice. In the city is was horrible. Even though they should have improved mileage a little bit with PCM controlling the motor and fuel injection I would still guess the mileage would be around 9 or 10 MPG mixed driving. I would love it but couldn't afford the up keep.

The 6.4L is a 392CI and from what I heard they were talking about making it with MDS (Not sure, but I have read it). I would guess the truck would be similar to the current SRT8 Jeep which gets about 13 in the city and 18 on the hwy.......

If it does have MDS I would think it should be able to get that and maybe 20MPG if you get a canned tune on it.

Don't assume that it has to use more gas. A friend of mine has a 6.4l stroker in his 05 RT Magnum, it has ported heads an a hot cam plus he sprays a 150 shot on the track. He gets 23 mpg on the highway with MDS disabled! Properly tuned, a 392/ 6.4 will get good mileage, and if they use FIAT's Multi Air technolegy you might be surprised. BTW there are already a bunch of 392 stroker Rams out there. Pretty easy build up.

I want one in a Challenger R/T because it looks way better than the SRT8.
