Also, pulled up this same hill with a rented 2500 gaser and it was running at 3500 to 4000 up this same hill when my 1st Toaureg was totaled. I also get 14 mpg towing and 29 all around mileage vs 8-12 in a gaser.

Trips to Norris run 78 down hill in 8th, drop to 7th up the hills at 70, running between 2000 and 2500 rpm respectively.
I'm going to have to record my RPM when I'm towing through the mountains.

Have a Benz GL450 and pull through some pertty decent hills here in the Carolina Piedmont ("foothills" in French). May be a "grocery getter" but plenty of grunt, real space for 7 pax, and an awesome ride quality as well as plenty of interior amenities and some kickazz engineering.

I like the matching wheels. How about this for your spare?
