I have had my Commander 4.7 V8 for 3 years now. I chose the 4.7 because it was NOT drive by wire and the engine has enough power to move this heavy vehicle without being over worked. Drive by wire wastes fuel. With direct control of the fuel I can finesse my acceleration to get the best mileage. Drive by wire has a brief lag between your foot and the response, so the tendency is to over do it on the acceleration with computerized accelerator "linkage". Couple that with 5.7 Hemi power and it is a wasteful combination for no gain. I get as high as 22 on the highway (optimum conditions, no AC, 55 degrees outside, no wind...) and about 13 in town. Considering I traded a 1982 FSJ Cherokee for the Commander, I'm getting about double the mileage of my old Cherokee!!! LOL
