Anyone pulling their trailer with a new Dodge hemi? What's the verdict, enough power to pull a decent trailer? What kind of mileage do you get. I've kind of been looking that way but I would like to hear some feedback.
Thanks

Leased one before my diesel, 4x4 Hemi 1/2 ton, pulled awesome, but the milage wasn't real good, got about 8 towing and 18 not towing.
All around it was a great truck

18 MPG not towing??
I'd love to have a truck that did that well. Before the dually, I had a '95 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9L magnum. It did about 8.5 pulling the trailer, about 13 normally and might get about 15.5 going down a mountain pass in neutral with a 100mph tail wind!!
Anyone else had one yet?

I'd opt for the Cummings diesel, I get about 14 mpg and its never short on guts. Better yet is the Dodge will stop too. Unlike the Ford diesel (11mpg)I have, but its so hard to start that stopping it is secondary.
