It seems to have enough power, but my only experience with it so far (+/- 500 Miles) is on the IH35 corridor in Texas between San Marcos, Austin and Dallas --which is pretty flat terrain... not even rolling terrain, really. And the weather has been rainy and windy. On one leg I averaged 12.3 MPG calculated. I had one stretch coming back from Dallas and the sun was shining, and I was showing over 15 MPG on the instruments. Maybe I had a tail wind. As soon as I ran into more rain and wind, the MPG decreased. One instance, when I was going up a constant grade (> 2%) it down shifted and ran the revs pretty high... I didn't like that. But I was not in tow/haul mode, and I had the cruise control set. That concerned me, in case I ever go to the Rockies.
The Drivers Information Center has a screen where you can monitor the transmission temperature, but there is not a gauge.
