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

2013 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
I keep a detailed log of fuel economy. I commute on hour each way, every day. 50% of the time is spent at 65 mph on the highway, and the remainder between 50 and 60 on 2-lane country roads. Only a few stops in between. Very consistently getting 21.5 to 22.3 mpg. I rarely rev it above 4000 RPM - only when passing someone. That happens maybe once or twice per tank. I am underwhelmed by the fuel economy. Full-sized trucks with larger, stronger V8s get similar economy. see full Nissan Frontier review
2011 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6

Well it has a 4.0L V6, so I guess I should have expected it. It does have nice power though. see full Nissan Frontier review
2011 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Well, the EPA ratings are 15 city 20 Highway. The salesman I dealt with says it is easy to get 20 Highway, and I am not an aggressive driver. The V6 is geared low enough that it does 1800 rpm at 60MPH, so my light foot will help here. We will see ! see full Nissan Frontier review

This 2011 Frontier Crew Cab at 4,000 miles is averaging 19-21 hwy, 16-19 city depending on weather and traffic conditions. see full Nissan Frontier review

Even though it is a powerful V6, economy was on par with much more powerful V8 engines. see full Nissan Frontier review

Overrated to what is identified. I know it is a truck but the mileage is far from what Nissan claims. see full Nissan Frontier review

5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
Average 17/21 during the summer. A friends 96 F-150 (also 4x4) gets 16/20 with a V-8. Expected much better mileage from a small truck. see full Nissan Frontier review
