what fuel economy? bought it to pull a Brenderup horse trailer (3300lbs including 1 horse) that can be pulled with a 4cyl car in europe.... doing 22l/100km on flat roads with light foot. more than double combined rating ....GM unresponsive! see full Chevrolet Avalanche review

It only averages around 14 to 15 in a mostly city driving environment. Was hoping the V4 mode would kick in more often to help improve the economy. see full Chevrolet Avalanche review

The milleage was terrible , my friend made the same trip as I did with a similar equiped Ford 5.4 L , 4x4 and used 30 % less gas. I rented this truck for a 2 week hunting trip to test it befor buying a new one. I will buy another Ford or GMC. see full Dodge Ram 1500 review

That hemi drinks fuel... we live at 55-60 while towing and 10mpg is all we hope for... we get that on the flats with no headwind. If you get a hill with a headwind you are looking at 4mpg! Buyer beware! fuel is approaching 5 bucks! see full Dodge Ram 1500 review

I should have bought the Hemi 5.7L engine. The 4.7 is awful...gutless and I get about 13 mpg in a rural setting and can get about 15 in the highway. I drive very conservatively. see full Dodge Ram 1500 review

Not much I don't like about this truck, but MPG with a Hemi combined with heavy loads means 12-13 mpg consistently. Not sure newer trucks would do any better with my 1000 lb load in the back. Highway mileage is only 16-17 at best. see full Dodge Ram 1500 review
