In fuel testing, Consumer Reports found that the Hemi-powered 1500 got an average 15 mpg which is on par for the class.

The 1500 earned a 78-point overall score (out of 100). That puts it over both the Toyota Tundra and Ford F-150. Consumer Reports is currently testing the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado.
