Re: TFL Truck on IKE Gauntlet Towing 4840 lbs
Robert - Thanks for loaning them your baby! Hard to argue with the test and results. That was a really great job by the RL. It definitely confirms what I already knew based on towing my nearly 5,000 lb boat for years with my 2010 G1 RL.
The G2 will have no issues with any semi-aerodynamic trailer under 5,000 lbs.
The mpg was awesome. Comparing the Ike Gauntlet test of the GMC Canyon Diesel (they towed a 5,600 lb horse trailer in the Feb 2016 GMC test): The GMC got 6.7 mpg with its 2.8L TURBO DIESEL and the uphill took 8 mins 55 secs. So the G2 getting 6.4 mpg with 4,840 lbs and a non-turbo gas engine is far more impressive in my book.
I'm a diesel fan too (2015 RAM EcoDiesel) but definitely moving to the G2 as my next rig...
P.S. No verbal mention of ROC by Nathan and Andre but they ran the banner under them for a while...
