Diesel I-5 for mountain driving?

This is an opinion question, since one of the motorhomes I'm looking at uses the I-5, but for people that have the diesel Transit, how well does it do up and down mountain highways and roads?

I'm guessing the fact that it has two turbos minimizes power loss due to elevation, but I've not driven one yet, so don't know.

No issues whatsoever moving my build over mountain passes. Been living with it at altitude (~9000ft) for a year now and have moved heavy loads over Tioga and Sonora Pass in the Sierras without difficulty. Have also passed plenty of traffic on the way over the passes fully loaded. The diesel has plenty of oompf.
