Impressive pull.... Now Chevy needs to dump that hideous front end and put a good looking one and it would be a good truck

I found this video tonight. Guy bought a 6.0 and was not happy with it pulling 8000lb tt over a pass in CO, and traded for the 2020 gasser, and pulled the same pass.

He’s claiming 9 MPG pulling a 8000 pound trailer over Rabbit Ears Pass?


What goes up comes back down.

There was something wrong with his old truck. He even mentioned having to pull off because it was getting hot.

The HDs are starting to grow on me, the Custom trim level specifically. Now the 1500s, I don't think I will ever like those.

The trailer stated in the video is a 2019 Cougar 22rbs I would find it hard to believe its 8k which is over the trailers GVWR...its prob somewhere around 7k....I also find it hard to to believe getting 9mpg running at 4500rpms at 50mph

9 mpg was an average after traveling over the pass, not up the pass.

Just looking at the number of gears in the transmission (manual or automatic) is out of context...but having more gear sets allows the tranny to find the best gear for any situation

The differential ratio, tire rev’s per mile and the biggie...the ICE’s torque/HP curve

Toss in how that vehicle will be used, as is the vehicles spec (actual weight, GVWR, etc)


True. Time will tell how the competition performs in comparable challenges. Its good to have the new gasser choices from all and give the diesel choice a higher scrutiny as to its immediate price increase and long term maint/post warranty repair exposure. Must be a reason why UPS has almost abandoned diesel in the mid duty fleet.

I agree, I have pulled 2.5 times that much weight to 8K' and never had to pull over. It never got hot.
