Honestly, there isn't much point to the V-6. I got mine with it because of the deal I got on the truck when I bought it. The added power of the 4.7 would be nice but it's hard to ignore $1000 equity before you even drive it off the lot.

I had that engine in a Jeep Liberty and didn't get good mileage at all either. It does have a great power band for a small engine though!
