LOL, no, because of the design of the motor. Aluminum block is not as reliable as the cast iron block. Thats proven. The previous post mentioned that the 6.2 l motor was a work horse motor, and i pointed out that it wasn't meant to be the constant hauler, puller, etc, which it is not. A high compression aluminum block motor ultimately is not a work horse. Why do you think its not offered in the 2500's? Thats not to say it cant tow and haul here and there. I do that with mine. Have a good day.
Much more fun to drive than my 6.0L i must say! I am seriously considering going back to Dodge........I am a fan of their interiors and I have had good success with the Hemi. I may regret that decision though lol
Very true, the 2" lift definitely doesn't help the fuel mileage cause between the two trucks. I just looked it up and noticed that the curb weight of the AT4 is actually 500 lbs less than the AT4. Never would have thought that. Oh well, it is what it is. Not all motors get the same gas mileage.
Technically thats not true. This isn't a work horse motor, its more of a race horse motor. With a cast Aluminum block its not meant for heavy work, that would be the 6.0 l engine. I buy whatever floats my boat. Driving style ultimately dictates gas mileage. Having said that, if i can get better gas mileage, thats a bonus. The difference between my 2019 and 2016 is a lot, thats my concern. Glad yours does well for ya!
I am using the exact same fuel I have always used, dyed 87 octane. I used it in my 2016 6.2 and i am using it in this truck so I am totally comparing apples to apples in that sense. I find it odd that i am experiencing such a huge difference between the two trucks. I assume this truck weighs more than my 16 denali, haven't looked into that.
Damn envious of many of you. Wonder why the big difference between vehicles? I was hoping this truck would impress me. The 6.2 in my denali did. I was lured to the dark Ram side again and resisted but am not overly pleased with this truck.
I normally drive at 77 mph but when i do my mileage tests i set it at 62 mph, same as i would do with my 16 Denali. What makes it even worse is these ****** ass small gas tanks as was mentioned earlier. I cant even get close 300 miles to a tank. Brutal! I had a 2018 2500 LTZ Night edition truck last, even though it rode like a railway tie and had crappy zip to it, its gas mileage was comparable to my AT4 but, it had the large tank. Beauty.
I have a 2019 AT4 with 6.2L 20" rims everything stock. Truck is terrible on fuel. 12-14 mpg. My 2016 1500 Denali with 6.2L beats it by 10 mpg easily. Very very disappointed with the fuel mileage of this truck. 38,000 km on this truck. Will be looking at getting rid of this truck in the next 6 months.
Truck is governed at 38 km/h in reverse (yes, I do lots of higher speed reverse driving on my rural back roads) and the location of the block heater plug is absolutely ridiculous IMO. It is by the driver side fog light behind decorative plastic grate that you have to remove....best do that when its warm! I wish the truck had a little throatier sound to it. When my wife's Durango R/T was switched into sport mode, it changed the exhaust tune as well as shift pattern etc Once you switch into sport mode, you cant switch back as if you do, it goes into towing mode. The truck rides nice off road. Pleased with that. I put the 20" duratracs on and am fine with them for now. Decent on the highways, slight shutter and shake on the highway with the seams in the pavement. All in all, pleased with this truck. Its a nice compromise between my 2016 denali and my 2017 Sivlerado LTZ 2500. Just my two cents.
Some may disagree with me on this but, I can't help but think the rims on the AT4 look a lot like rims on a Toyota. I can't have that, but i don't want to spend a pile of coin either to change it up. I like the rugged look of the black rims, so not looking to go to the chrome look which would be an easy swap out with the dealer. I was thinking of powder coating the rims, but I am not good at visualizing what it would look like. I need pictures lol. Any other thoughts?
