I’d definitely agree. I feel the 6.2/10speed is the best powertrain on the market. The power delivery is dead nuts linearYeah, I agree. My neighbor has one and I wasn't impressed at all with the power. It seemed very comparably to my 2020 Trail boss with the 5 3. Sure the fuel mileage is great, and it would be an awesome powertrain for rock crawling with all that tq down low, but I would take the 6.2 all day long in this particular truck.
I think 30mpg is a bit much to expect out of a ZR2. 30 is probably only doable with a standard 2wd extended cab.It's not much more than premium is here. I sure wish I was getting 30mpg instead of the 17 I'm getting out of my 6.2L currently.
Absolutely correct! My neighbor and I did the math one day, if diesel is 1 dollar above gas it costs him more. He averages anywhere from 18-25 mpg depending on how he drives. It is possible to see close to 30, but conditions have to be perfect.I think 30mpg is a bit much to expect out of a ZR2. 30 is probably only doable with a standard 2wd extended cab.
Real world is probably 15 6.2 25 3.0
Here in Florida, diesel runs a dollar more then 93.
When your factor the cost of fuel alone you save about 800/year. (12k miles) That’s not including DEF or the diesel maintenance costs.
In my opinion, it’s an absolute wash.
