2010 6.0L Gas enough power?

Hi!
Finally found the PERFECT bus for us. Except we were trying for a diesel and this one is gas.

23' long
2010 Chevy 6.0L V8 engine
Quigley 4x4

We had some concerns with the smaller gas engines having enough power to get us hills. This one is a fairly large engine but just want to make sure it's enough. Anyone have any experience with this engine/bus combo?

Thanks!

It's a good motor for a cutaway, they're WAY lighter than a medium duty bus.

Mine is 2wd, but even at altitude it does fine (I'm in CO). Mine is a 6 window Collins, so probably about the same size overall.
