I just want to know whether it will be able to tow 8,000 - 10,000 lbs. & How much will it affect the mileage from each full charge while on the road towing.

Towing capacity will be based on motor, it's listed on the Tesla website.

We don't know how much range will suffer: This will vary based upon your driving speed, hills, and the aerodynamics of what you're towing.

Something that fits in the truck's wake might not cost any notable range. Something massive could double the truck's energy use. Or maybe just something sticking out into the air. Or you might just be going slow and it won't matter.

The single motor will tow 7.5k max, dual motor version will tow 10k max, the tri motor will tow 14k max.

Expect mileage while towing to drop significantly. Probably in the 40% to 50% range. Similar to what an ICE equivalent loses while towing the same load. If your truck now gets around 20mpg empty and 10 - 12 while towing, that could give you a general idea what the CT will do for you. At least from a range perspective.

The really nice thing about electric is the torque. I mean the dual and the tri are in the 3/4 - 1 ton diesel range for torque values. Big boy shit.

dual motor can tow that. just assume your mileage is cut in half while towing.
