i have a 5.0 vortec and i think its amazing, power, good on gas, and fun to whip

More horse power and same gas milage as the smaller 4.8 engine, so it doesnt have to work as hard to pull the same amount of weight or extra cargo which in the long run saves on wear and tear of the engine and truck, not to mention money.
