by David Zatz on

2009 EPA gas mileage for the Chrysler Aspen Hybrid and Dodge Durango Hybrid are 20 miles per gallon city and 22 mpg highway, best in the full-size 4×4 sport-utility vehicle class. The hybrid system uses the Hemi V8, producing 400 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque when coulpled with the electric motor. The twin SUVs are around $8,000 cheaper than the GM vehicles using a similar system, and may be eligible for a tax credit of over $2,000. They have a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds when properly equipped, and are built in Newark, Delaware.
