RE: GM 6.2L 420hp and 10-speed

I'll pipe in! My numbers here are general as I don't have my files with me, but it gives you an idea of just what a "half ton" is capable of with the proper equipment. Yes, it was pricey, but I dreamed of a truck like this my entire life, so I was ready for the price with ALL the bells and whistles! As a point of reference, I've been RVing since 1987, with fiftwheels, travel trailers, campers, duallys, etc., and full timed for 9 years in a 30' pull trailer with a single axle one ton truck and then a 36' full wall slider fiver with a GMC extended cab dually. I purchased my 2018 Sierra Denali, with the Denali Extreme package new in March 0f 2018.It has a 6.2V8 8/4 with 8 speed auto transmission. Empty I average 21.5 MPG. Fully loaded with full tanks and gear, towing, 13MPG. I pull an EVO T2050, dual slide 23' travel trailer (25'11" bumper to hitch) with a max weight of 7,900lbs. I have weighed the rig but I don't remember the exact weight, but it's under the mfg. rating and quite a bit below the trucks tow capacity. The tow rating of my truck is over 9,000 lbs with the extreme package and I can tell you after over 15,000 miles of pulling it I LOVE it! I have never had a truck that so effortlessly pulled a trailer without being a dually (and I've had a number of them!) Never had an issue with power. The magnetic suspension adjusts (supposedly) 1,000 times a second and it's like driving a luxury car, with or without the trailer. Like I wrote, I don't have my paperwork or files with me, but suffice it to say I am Completely happy with it!.... though it WAS more expensive than my first house! So there you have it. It's not the 10 speed, but I can only say that if it's anything like my 8 speed with the 6.2 you would LOVE it! Best of luck ! Dak
