If you enjoy the higher rpm pull of the 6.2 then i would stick with it, if you want something that has some good bottom end grunt for towing gets good mileage then the 3.0 might be good? You will lose some passing power with the 3.0, but thats really the only time i am disappointed in the 3.0
I hear what you are saying, but, i dont know what you are comparing to but mpg for me it is far better than my 14 5.3. The 3.0 really shines on highway at 60-65 mph. I agree the passing power isnt there but the 270hp told me that. I tow a small trailer pretty often and that is where it shines for me, gear searching is greatly reduced and the powertrain is far smoother imo than the gassers. Would i be happy with more top end power yes, but i knew what i was getting with the diesel. Im happy with it.
Tires really arent bigger, just heavier
I just let it idle for 5-10 minutes usually, lets the seats an steering wheel warm up, the engine doesnt warm up much until you drive it.
Im averaging 19-20 right now during the winter in idaho. Warm up idle is really killing MPG and it being cold. I have a silverado with 2.5/2 lift and trailboss takeoffs, so pretty compareable. Id imagibe you will gain a little with more time to break in.
I average 23-24 in the summer, its been about 20 this winter so far, but ive been pulling a small enclosed every weekend. Plus i have the 3.73 gears. I still average about 30 mpg on stricly highway at 55-60 mpg Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
