    Just got to florida from ny in my new Ram 1500 4x4 4 door pickup 4.7l. Totally surprised by 20.8 mpg . this with 3 people and bed loaded to the hilt.
    If not for 3 hours of stop and go around Obamatown, probably would have got 21
    plus. New coil spring suspension much smoother and stable at high speeds than my old ram. Absolutely no wind noise. Totally pleased.

    My friend bought a new chevrolet 4X4 extended cab with a 5.3 litre engine. He took in on a trip with only 800 miles on it and got 20.8 on the way up and 21.2 on the way back. Really surprised him too. My old 6 cylinder ford 4X4 only got about 15 on the road.
