Default V6 Durango Mileage?

So my brother has convinced his wife to let him upgrade his 02 QC Dakota and 99 Honda Civic to a QC Ram and a V6 Durango.

Only problem is, the Durango is a gas hog in any form according to, so why go with the V6? Especially without 4x4. We're in Idaho folks.

I'm starting to think that . . . dare i say it. . . an Explorer is a better choice. But, the mileage on those doesn't look any better. This is all based off of though.

I think the route he needs to go is just a Grand Caravan/Town&Country/Voyager. They have plenty of towing capacity for a small motorcycl trailer or pop up camp trailer, and when he's really going to be using those, he'll take the truck.

Of course, he'll be getting a Ram for the truck. It would dishonor the family if he didn't.
