Again, I performed a cost benefit analysis on the used Ford IH Powerstroke and the scales were in favor of the diesel. Admittedly I have only had it a few years but thus far it has been cost effective and the best tow vehicle I have owned (been towing since the 1970s).

2016 GMC 1500 5.3l engine, 6x speed tran & 3.42 rear axle ratio. Use Trailer/Haul when towing. 214WSD weighs 4000lbs+ on average.

I almost always keep it to 60mph when towing and get 10-12 mpg (US) with the trailer.

Around 20 mpg highway without the trailer, averaging 70mph

As always, "Your mileage may vary!"
