I can't comment on fuel economy.However as a ex dealer tech I can tell you the 6.0 is a great motor.The only Real issue I've really ever seen with them is they like to snap exhaust manifold bolts.I would get a flash light and look around where the manifolds bolt to the heads.If they are all there you are good to go.

Yep 6.0 is a good motor. My wife's Denali has it and yes they snap manifold bolts. My wife's Denali has two that are snapped but since no sign of exhaust leak yet they are not getting fixed... Won't tow like the duramax obviously but should be fine for 8k pounds.

If the broken ones are all the way in the front or rear they make a clamp system to eliminate the need to drill the bolts or pull the heads(rear no room).
