It was 27.7 hp at 45 mph, 50 hp at 55 mph, 74.6hp at 65 mph, your truck will vary. but you can see the effects of speed vs hp required.

A V6 truck is more than enough to do the job, and if you can keep throttle inputs moderate, you will get better MPG than a V8.
when i had my 4cyl i could barley even get on the highway with a trailer. think 60 max.
