Yes. IIRC V8 was actually 1 point higher than I6; with the intended pulling and towing- some of it off-road- I figured I should have 4x4; and compared to a V6 Ranger or other small truck it wasn't much of an mpg hit at all according to the specs AND purchase price was pretty close to the same too. It ended up being used for loads too big for a smaller truck anyway. Of course most of the time a smaller truck would be more suitable because I don't have the huge loads 100% of the time. But it's paid for.
