I'm getting about 15 mpg towing 4500lbs with my diesel XD.

The 6.4 ram will give you the most capacity, but it will return the worst mileage. 12-14 mpg unloaded, sub 10 when towing. And unless you plan to step up to a 12k + trailer, the xd will have plenty capacity and better mpg in both gas and diesel. I'd really like to see a tfltrucks mashup between the xd with the 5.6 and the hemi 6.4.....very comparable power output.
