I had a 2015 Chevy 2500HD with the 6.0 and 4.10 gears. My trailer was about 9,000 loaded give or take a few hundred pounds. I routinely got 8mpg when towing. Best I ever did was 8.5mpg and the worst was 7mpg. When not towing and using it as a daily driver, I got 12mpg around town and 16 on the highway. I liked the big 36 gallon gas tank but my 2017 RAM 3500 Heavy Duty with the 6.4 Hemi and 3.73 gears does a little better (8.5 towing 10K 5th wheel, 14mpg around town and 19mph highway when not towing) and it weighs more at 7,200lbs. but it only has a 31 gallon tank. I will say that the 6.4 Hemi is much more responsive when not towing. I would say it's quite snappy! The 6.0 in the Chevy wasn't.

At 30K combined I got about 5-7. Pulling boat trailers and so forth I got 10 mpg. Highway mpg 14-15. It was a 2015 3500 6.0 CC, 4X4. Great truck, I would do it again.

I had a 2001 2500HD 6.0 4:10 and pulled around 6k lbs. I'd get 8-9 mpg towing, 12 in town. Those averages are similar to my current F250.

Interesting question. Never seen this asked or discussed before.

Short answer, about the same as your Escalade.

Our last trip this year was from Southern Illinois to Branson. Averaged 9 towing and 16 running around. 2015 6.0, 4.10 and tow a 30' travel trailer weighing around 7400lbs. Pulling the steepest hills around Branson, we saw 2mpg [emoticon]

My 2018 2500HD (6.0 and 4.10's) is getting around 7-8 towing a 30 foot trailer that's around 7-8000 pounds.

Low was 6 in the Smokies and high was this last trip (beach) at 8.

Best (according to the cluster) was 17 not towing. 12-13 seems to be the average during normal, non towing driving.

Hauls like a beast and drives great. You won't be disappointed.

The truck in my sig gets 8-9 towing, 14-15 all around unloaded.

Pulls great, wish it had a six speed though.

I agree with the others that you will be in the 8-9 mpg range towing. Great truck for the money. 118,000 miles on it and still going strong.
