I was worried after reading how people like towing with 5.3 liter trucks that I would be largely unsatisfyed with the performance. Running almost 50/50 interstate/2 lane roads, I'm happy to report an averaged mpg of 11/14 respectively. That is with the jeep on the trailer, and the bed loaded with 3 large coolers (full), camping supplies and luggage for 4 people and a table. I was overjoyed and the performance of my truck this weekend.

That's pretty good gas mileage I only get about 10 pulling my Jeep with my dads 04 Yukon. What speed do you tow at?

6.0, I asked the same thing. So I thought it would of had the 6.2 also but even his owners manual says it was not an option for the 2500, but it was for the 1500.? I thought that was weird.

True, as of right now no 6.2L in the 2500HD's. Not really sure why, hoping they do it in the next couple years or so.

Yeah it is the 6.0 but it has plenty of power with or without the jeep in tow. I got 11.6 mpg towing the jeep at 70 so I'm not mad

It's only 40hp difference between the 6.0 and 6.2

So, what you are saying is that you are content with less. Sucks to be you.

Let me clarify... air system, programmer, and maybe exhaust... bottom line 40 HP can be added easily..
