thirsty? maybe the old ones. I have a 2011 quad cab 4x4 with 3.92's and easily get 12.5-13 litres/100 km ( 18.8 mpg)
not bad in my books for a full size pickup.
as info there is a major difference between gen 1 5.7's and now gen 3 5.7's. gen 3's are mds vvt engines that are failry efficient for a v8.
your 05 would be a straight non mds non vvt hemi. good motor not efficient. I fidna big difference between my gen 2 5.7 (chrysler aspen)and my gen3 truck
Nice looking truck crash3!!!
