    Own 2016 Laramie 4x2, ordered and took delivery Nov. 2015. odometer is spinning at 65K, every 10K oil change, she's averaging 25.8 mpg... def is at a gal. per 1000 miles or there about… Occasionally pull a 14,600 gvwr trailer with a 62 Ford Thunderbird Landau which weighs in at 5700 lbs, for a total of 8200 lbs...she pulls and brakes with zero issues.... the best fuel economy has been 33 mpg... over a routine 280 mile trip back and forth to central Kansas, depending on humidity, wind speed, which can be horrid, I average mid 27 mpg... with the trailer, I installed air lift air bags in the rear springs, the airbags also enhances braking and road handling either way, loaded or unloaded... as for ride, she's better than an ole B-Body Cadi or Lincoln... only issue, twice, had to reload the PCM, and the rear back up camera will occasionally go crazy and draw a blank green screen... I used to use, 5-20 Kendall from Petroleum Service Company out of PA. it ran about $5.45 a qt. and now use Rotella T-6 5-40 syn. and give about $20 a gallon for it from a farm and ranch store... compared to a gas rig, it runs 30% more efficiently... insurance costs and total acquisition costs is my only complaints... trucks are now too high... never thought that I would see the day when the MSRP would bust $50 or $60 K.... otherwise, I love my ride, it does not beat you to death...

    67,000 miles and never a single problem. Approximately 1/2 the miles are towing.

    ~42,000 miles no mechanical issues at all. only real issue is finding a tire dealer that can roadforce and balance a set of tires.

    I had my 2014 for 60000 miles or 100000kms, my 2016 for about 70000 miles or 115000kms and now my 2018 for 1500 miles or 2500kms. Besides a tensioner on the accesory belt coming loose early in my 2014 ownership all have been very good. Mileage has been very consistent at 23 mpg average or 10l/100km on all 3.

    2015 Laramie 4x4. Bought in September of 2015 with 30 miles. Just turned over 154,000 miles. Meticulously maintained. GDE tuned at 70,000 miles. 5w40 Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme Oil with Mopar Filters every 8,500-9,500 miles. Mopar Fuel filters every 40,000 miles. Transmission Service with OEM filter and pan and ZF Fluid 90,000 miles. Valvoline Synthetic Gear Oil in differentials every 70,000 miles. Mopar Transfer Case oil changed at 140,000 miles. Flushing coolant this weekend. Used maybe 2 cups of coolant since new. 1000-2000 mile round trips nearly every weekend for 9 months of the year. 1 3/4 sets of tires. 😉

    0 problems. BNSF Railway keeps me busy

    87k still going strong. GDE tune at 14K. Only problem was that damn squeak from the ECM. Zip ties fixed it better than new. Speaking of it still smells new

    50000 klms on my 2014 GDE tuned, lots of them towing my trailer 9,999 gvw never missed a beat, the only issue was water in one of the fog lights.

    In the process of making a deal on a diesel pusher so the truck maybe history, unless we decide to flat tow it behind !!
