way to come off like a prick, I've been driving an 05 grand cherokee and it's a 18 gallon, most american big american cars like the charger, challenger, 300, camaro, mustang, all have 18 gallons tanks except for the mustang which has 16. The Cherokee has 15.8 and it shares an engine.
not according to all the sites out there they are all 12.7, and there isn't any gas thank size options on jeeps configurator. Would have been a great option to have i'm sure alot of people would have gotten it, think everybody with 4x4 should opt to get it. it should be at least 16 gallons 18 would be ideal.My liberty tank is 20ish - I agree that 12.7 seems small for for a rig meant for off roading and traveling. And isn't the TH tank a little bigger than the other trims?
Do you do mostly city Driving in those Santa Fe's? My Hemi Ram 1500 gets better than that. For me to get that kind of mileage I have to be pulling a vehicle on a trailer.At first when I read that the Renegade had a 12 gallon tank I was somewhat disappointed mainly because my previous Santa Fe had a 17 gallon tank and the current my Santa Fe has a 19 gallon tank. Both get (at the very best) only 13 MPG (when they should get 17) and that only gives me about 247 miles between fill ups. But disappointment turns into happy dance when I read from customers that the Renegade with its 12 Gallon tank are getting some folks up to a 350+ miles between fill-ups.
Granted, I do agree that a slightly bigger tanks would be great, only to get more range.
I have a '98 2-door RAV4 with a 15.3 USgal tank and a 2015 Subaru Forester with a 15.9 gal tank. My RAV is getting on in years and I thought I'd get a Renegade, liked it a lot, and choked when I found out it has such a small tank. I guess that's not a problem for urban/suburban/interstate driving, but I'm not gonna feel comfortable on the back roads of Nevada, Utah or north of Dawson in the Great White where range is as important as mpg. Are you listening Jeep?
