  1. in the 60's our Bedouins were useing ford trucks to travel throw the desrts, early 70's the GMC came on the top and nucked down the ford truck like a beast , untill this day people here love the GMC trucks and alot of still owns 1975-1983 GMC trucks

    i know how people do on the comments > listen I DON'T HATE FORD

  2. So 5.0 Ford is faster than the 5.3 GM with 2 extra gears and the GM is better with fuel with 2 extra gears. The problem here is that those sand bags don't account for the parts that still have to turn in the 4×4 system even though disengaged, the lower ride height of a 2wd and the less aggressive tires. The GM trucks are getting all the advantages in these videos. Did GM really have no 4×4's available? The 6.2 is the obvious choice here between these 2 though.

  3. While the MPG was the same during towing, the 5.3 would have the MPG advantage when you are not towing. Better overall MPG, lower octane fuel and less expensive purchase price are reasons for 5.3. That said, I have the 5.3 and wish I had the 6.2. They are just so hard to find used though.

  4. Thank you so much for doing this sort of test. I love watching your YouTube videos! Your results proved to me that the 5.3L is the better deal due to its towing MPG is so close to the 6.2L, which is the only reason I would look at getting a bigger engine (empty 0-60 is for sports/muscle cars). Next time, how about adding a 0-60 towing (i.e. an on-ramp acceleration test)? That's a truck's 0-60 that matters to me.

  5. Both are good engines. Both have good trannys, pick your flavor. If your looking at modifying a truck to make it a fast truck, the 6.2 is a good base to start at. 420hp stock. Throw a cold air intake, headers, exhaust, and a supercharger and your pushing around 600.

  6. i have. a 2012 gm with the 6.2 4×4 extenda cab with the 6.6box love this truck and it was 2200.00more then the 5.3. it is an exlent for pulling and makes about 14 miles per gallon.loaded.
