Hi,
I'm a happy owner of my 21 Trailhawk. Unfortunately I'm really suprised about the gas consumption... I can't go down 7.8 L/100km (29.4 mpg) in extra urban being carefully with the gas pedal. In the urban I get about 12-13.5L/100km (19.6 to 17.4mpg). Is that normal? My car has about 6 000km mileage. It's just horrible this is the only thing that disappoints me so much about this car.

Jeeps are not known for gas mileage they are known for there ability to get from point A to B over difficult terrian and driving conditions which they have proven they can do better than anyone else since the ninteen forties.
My rene trailhawk 2.4 gets 29 to 33 < US gallon >on the freeways and a consistant 26 in cities. Mine is not equipped with start stop technology.

Witam!

My 2021 Trailhawk (1.3T engine), with 6,500 mi (10,500 km) shows an overall average of 23.1 MPG (10.2 L,100km).

I agree that's not great for such a small engine. But I do a mix of mostly city and some highway driving, and also quite a lot of summer offroad 4x4 driving here in the Rocky Mountains. That really affects the fuel consumption.

And as many here have pointed out, these vehicles have the aerodynamics of a toaster.

:)Nah...toaster is better

The mileage is really bad off road. You can't look at the dash read out of range. I remember my first experiance with that i looked and it said i was down to 40 miles and it was about 30 miles back to pavement i was worried. By the time i was on pavment the range had gone back up to 160 miles. I had forgotten that it was looking at my range at actual current consumption rate and i was in low gear climbing over rocks and creeks which sucks fuel.
Here is a pix of the trail i was on after reaching the valley at 10,000 feet when i was shocked by seeing i had forty miles to go before i would be empty.

Should be in the region of 7->8 l/100km

Optimum efficiency is at ~110kph. And who drives at that speed when the limit is 130kph? 🤭

I had the Renegade up to 160. But it's not that stable to feel "safe".

The Compass PHEV is frighteningly easy to get up to 160 and beyond if you stamp on the loud-pedal at 130kph.

But it is funny to see the usual foot-to-the-floor midrange diesel drivers (with their indicator on and headlights flashing) shrink to a speck in the rearview mirror.

Too many speed camera these days to play those games for long any more.
