It's the average from their city test loop, which includes a lot of stop and go and low speeds. I guarantee the HEMI doesn't get 13 in this test.
Actually, let me look it up...
The Liberty CRD actually got 11 in their city loop, 26 on their highway loop, and 18 overall. The overall number for the 3.7 gas engine is 15.
The numbers for the Ram with the HEMI are 8 city, 17 highway, and 11 overall.
I have many problems with CR's methods, but their fuel economy results look sound to me. Just got to understand that when they say city, they mean city, not suburbs.
