I find it no surprise the V6 Commander has problems getting good mileage. That V6 has to work mighty hard to motivate a vehicle as large as the Commander.
My dad had 2 Dodge Maxivans. One had a 360 and one with a 318. The 360 always got better mileage than the overworked 318.
With my light foot, I could probably do well with the 5.7 too. So you are probably right, 4.7 and 5.7 will be similar economy for me.
That 5.7 must be a lot of GO! when you punch it.
It definitely is ! I've owned mine for 4 years and still get a thrill out of the acceleration.
