I can give you a good compare..
I own a 2021 Class B+ with the new Ford 7.3L V-8 and 6 speed transmission and a 2014 and 2017 Chevy 3500 van with the 6.0L V-8 and 6 speed transmission..
The Chevy van is just a van and the Class B+ weights 11,500 pounds.
The 6.0 would not do what the 7.3 does in my RV and I like the 6 speed in the Ford better than the Chevy because the Chevy transmission has a shudder problem and many complain about this, I think the Chevy 6.0 in a small Class C would labor hard while the Ford 7.3 does not labor even in the mountains.
I also own 5 other vans for my business and over the 20 years I have had better luck with the Ford vans over the Chevy vans, also had a few Dodge vans.
Even though the Chevy 6.0 V-8 and 6 speed is ok the Ford 7.3 V-8 and 6 speed is a far better motor/transmission from my perspective and owning both.
Hope this helps..
