The two that I referred to are 2wd and I believe that the op's is also. That is good for one or two miles per gallon. And driving habits can make a lot difference.


My son's truck is a 4x4, double cab.


Then that is pretty good mileage for the truck. I really would like to see a direct comparison between the two engines to get a more precise comparison. I haven't found one yet.

why buy a truck if it can't pull anything? Next they will try to sell you a 5 1/2 foot bed.

Said trucks will pull more than you think! To think a right with a 300/300 turbo charger motor can't pull anything, shows how far behind your thinking is.
I'd have no issues putting 6000 behind OPs son's truck, or the Ford trucks with the turbo 4 bangers in them. They'd probably do better than my BB V8's I've had, or some of the original turbo diesels of yor in 1 tons!!!

My son didn't buy his truck to pull anything. He had a 2017 Chevy truck before this 2019 and he didn't tow anything with it. But he does use the bed of the truck to haul things every so often.

I am trying to figure out if you are serious or trying to make a joke. If you are serious you need to drive some of these small engines, they pull amazingly well. And, the dealers tell me that most buyers want a 5 1/2ft bed on a half ton. I had to special order my truck to get the 6 1/2ft bed.

No, it’s just his typical “If you don’t have a 1 ton solid axle diesel, you don’t have a truck.” Speech.

ppine is a troll plain and simple. Yep, wants a 1 ton short8' box truck to haul things. When a real twuck has a 20k min graw or tandem 20k drivers. His lowly 1ton is still a light duty truck.
His reply troll post never saw the light of day!
