What I have found is a lot of people are scared to put their foot in it, let it downshift, and rev it up into 5K territory. There is a reason the tach stops at 6K and has no red lines. You can wind one of these up all day long into 5K+ territory and you won't hurt a thing. Its built for it.
Our 2015 with the 4:10 is much better going up than the 3:73 we had was which is understandable. No noticable mileage difference. Not towing we get around 14.5. Towing and loaded 9 to 10 highway, a little less on 2 lanes in mountains.
