Fuel mileage on a 2012 6.0

Fuel mileage on a 2012 6.0

Postby tombo [OP] » Mar 03 2012, 11:08pm

I'm thinking of buying a 2012 Chevrolet CC 2500 with a 6.0 liter. What kind of fuel mileage are you guys getting in this truck? Does it have V4 mode like the 5.3? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think that is the truck your looking at. If not there is a huge list of cars to choose from on there and all the info is from drivers reporting there actual mileage and fuel ups, not the EPA estimated crap they give you at the dealerships. Hope this helps!

$112 today from reserve notification, to full up, at $3.75/Gallon. That's an average of 8.2mpg. Um... that of course was towing #12,000... so in that regard, that isn't so bad!

Seriously though, I get about 14mpg on flat ground, with nothing in the truck. I average lower by me, because I am always up and down mountains (averages about 13).

Ran into another field trialer, bought the same truck as me (with extended cab not crew) but with 3:73 gears, he says he gets about 12mpg highway, so not sure that the 3:73 would be that underpowered.

I have 2012 2500 Silverado. The highest I have ever gotten is 13 miles to imperial gallon. Pulling my 5th wheel approx 10 mpg. I would also like to hear what other guy's are getting from their trucks.

May seem odd, but wind more than load affects mpgs for me. I'm at about 13mpg on the highway unloaded; as high as 14 with a tail breeze. 10mpg pulling a cargo trailer a littke more with a tail breeze. As low as about 8.5 into the wind. A solid 10.5 mpg around town stop and go, unloaded.

No 4 cyl baloney on these engines. GM didn't make them to save gas and they are outside of the CAFE requirements.

Thanks for all the reply's regarding the 6 litre Chevy truck engine. I am right in the ball park. Funny though as I towed my 5th wheel 15,000 miles with my 2004 5.3litre and averaged 11mpg. I bought the 2012 2500, 6litre and thought I would average about 13mpg towing the same 5th. Poorer milage with the 2500, but an easier tow. No big deal, as I we do love the 2012.

The city mileage is ugly . empty taking my truck 2 time a day doing short move is doing 6-7 mpg this is very bad. highway empty 15-16 mpg , with a trailer and a atv , 12-13 mpg. towing 8000 pound rv on highway is 8-9 mpg

I buy a 2500hd only because I want a 4 door and long box. I like my hd because the truck drive like empty when i drive with an atv in the box and full packed of stock .

if you considering not towing frequently over 5000 pound
and you not need a crew cab with a long box
and you not need the extra suspension toughness for towing
and you not need the look of an hd

you better with a 1500.
because empty the mileage difference is an easy 2-3 mpg
and the price difference.

I assume you are in the US and US gallons. I am in Canada and dealing with the imperial gallon. In the very near future I will know exactly what the truck will get as I intend on doing a 10'000 mile trip shortly and I am a milage watcher? So I will let the Chevy forum what I get towing a 8000lb 5th wheel when I get back.
