I've got the 1.4 Turbo MultiAir 140 HP.
I've driven a 1500 km in the first week, mostly highway,....(100/120/130 km/h)
Fuel consumption is quite good,...13 km on 1 litre.
(the board computer gives an optimistic 14 km on 1 litre)
:D
13:1 is 30.94 miles per gallon (US)

I've had my Renagade Opening Edition Limited 2.0 MultiJet 140 hp Diesel with manual transmission for a month now and been driving it for about 4800 km so far. I mostly use it for commute to work in town 25 km away. Also took it for two longer trips up north on snowy and icy roads.
Are using Pirelli Ice Zero studded tires!

Have an average of 6.6 l/100 km (15.2 km/Liter)

So I'm curious why the 4WD fuel economy isn't listed on fueleconomy.gov yet. Do you guys really think it's going to show less than 30mpg on the highway?

That would be so disappointing. My guess is they haven't released it yet because it's less than they've told EVERYONE in EVERY interview the last year.

At this rate we're going to have to go to a dealership to see the 4WD fuel economy on the window sticker...

It'll have to go up there when they start selling them. They will wiat as long as possible. This tells me it isn't good news.

If they could break the 30+ mpg barrier with their 4x4s, I would think they'd be singing it from the mountain tops.

The fact that their FWD versions JUST BARELY surpass 30 mpg on the highway and they are taking so long to release 4x4 fuel economy leads me to a similar conclusion.

Multiple Jeep representatives have been quoted and even recorded as saying "all trim's highway fuel economy will start with a 3". I think this is a decent "oopsie" considering this segment prides itself with better than average SUV fuel economy.

With the disconnecting rear drivetrain it really should be negligably worse. Maybe 30 highway 23-24 combined. I'd be happy with that, far better than my XJ which saw 13.5 mpg last fill up.

Time will tell but I'm being optimistic and thinking positive.

I know what you mean, i'm coming from a vehicle that also gets mileage just as worse. You'll be filling up once a week at most with the renegade :D

With any car, the mileage you get depend a lot on how you drive it. I'd rather have a well built (read slightly heavier) car with slightly less gas mileage than some flimsy and flexy car that gets more mpg.

Just got my 1-6 E Torq longitude. Drove home very gently over country roads never above 3.5k revs and fuel consumption reads 24 mpg! Drove to the dealer in my GTC and was averaging 60 mpg on same route!!! And that's a 2 ltr turbo! Hope it gets better as it frees up as the engine feels very tight.
