I was so worried about how bad the mileage was going to be when I originally bought it, I really wanted a 6.0. The mileage is bad but 6.0s are just a bit better with a lot less power so it works for me. It definitely has a lot of power! It didn't break a sweat pulling the toy hauler which weighs about 6000 lbs with what it had in it, the tranny climbed to maybe 210-215 degrees in the hills & switch backs of mn hwy 60 on the way home from Millville but then dropped to normal operating temp as we got back onto hwy 52 and all the way home. It was about 90 degrees & humid that day (this past Saturday) and we had the a/c on the whole time.
