I only test on highway driving since that is where I have a messure of control. City rural and such is so variable. Lights, traffic, yahoo's cutting infront, farmers who don't signal and just do as the want as if they're all alone on the road.
Having said that. I got a solid 27MPG on a recent trip to Montreal doing about 115k/hr AVG. On a return trip I drove through through a lot of rain and freezing rain force me to slow down. Avg 100k/hr resulted in 30MPG. Last year I did several test getting 29 and 30-31MPG but thats the best I've seen. I don't see how this powertrain can achieve 39MPG or even close. Other than programming updates their is not difference in the last few years other than the 2011 having a different body. But 2010 were said to be 39MPG on Jeep website with 4x4 & CVT.
Note I even have new CVT transmission and if anything its lower than on the original CVT. I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee and despite its age its getting 25-26MPG on the same trips along the 401 and speed.
