Not a lot. The only problem I have had was the 10% grade up to the Teton pass. I do not know if the 5.0 would have faired any better. The ride on the roads in New Engand is just as bad with the 5.0.2. I have lost about 1 mpg. 14 - 16 before, 13 - 15.now.
With 144000+ miles on the Frontier, Joanne wants to trade, andI think we will go with another Frontier depending on the GVWR of the newer model.
I was annoyed to discover that my axle weights can both be within allowable range, and the total can be too high. My CVWR was OK, but I had to move some weight from the truck bed to the rear basket.
