I have a TH V6 with Trailer Tow group with full size spare tire 3.517 final drive weighing approx. 4,300 lbs. stop and go MPG without any Freeway driving abt. 16 mpg. In town including Freeway abt. 19 mpg. Recently went on a 1,600 miles trip with trailering a 1,000 lbs. motorcycle trailer including a motorcycle averaging 19.6 MPG with substantial headwind and speeds in the 75 to 80 miles range. Noted on other shorter trips 24/25 Mpg at speeds in the 60/65 miles range. Mileage to date: 6,750 miles and changed today for the first time oil and filter. Oil life was indicated at 10%.

I recently bought a 2015 2.4 4wd Limited. While I am only around 800 miles, I am only getting 17.9 MPG combined. Been about 65% city driving. Very disappointing. I only bought a 4 cylinder because I was coming from a V-6 that was only getting about 15 MPG and wanted a much bigger jump in MPG. I have had some issues with the way the vehicle is shifting so not sure if that is contributing to the poor MPG. I took the vehicle to dealer today to see if they could find any issues.

Mine is V6 AD2 at 1500 miles getting 23.7 since picked it up at 10 miles. But that's at about 30% city.

On longer trips, through quite mountainous country in Montana and Washington State, and with the Trailhawk very heavily loaded for vacation, we averaged about 24.3 - 24.5 mpg. That is about the same as we achieved in our '08 Mitsu Outlander V-6 on similar trips although the TH is about 500# heavier and has 55 more bhp. Our best tank has been 26+ mpg on flatter roads. So we are very happy campers as you may imagine.

Approaching 5,000 miles and averaging between 19 and 20 MPG. However, as I wrote in my review, the mileage varies considerably between city and highway, and depending on driving styles.

My city average is around 18 MPG but in city stop and go traffic, I am lucky to get 15 MPG. On the highway and open roads, I am always above 25 MPG. I also notice that driving style matters. By engaging ACC, I can add at least 1 MPG on the highways and 0.5 MPG in the city (so much for my driving abilities ).

I have a V6 Trailhawk and do mainly stop and go and I average around 18. The best I've seen is 25.6 on a highway run. I have about 2,000 miles on it.

My I4 gets 27.5 MPG on my commute. My V6 gets 27.5 mpg on the same trip and I drive it a little harder than the 4. Both get low 30's on highways with few stops.

Mixed highway, suburb, and town traffic. 55 miles per day at speeds mostly 35 to 55 mph. Hilly terrain.

I4 and V6
