It is very rare with head gasket leaks on these engines and with that HUGE amount of coolant loss, I would be surprised if the engine did not have other running issues as well if it in fact was the head gasket. I would suspect rough starting and misfire when cold if the head gasket would leak into combustion chambers.
The orange Dexcool have a tendency to disappear and leave few traces but still, with that HUGE amount of leak, it should leave wet traces somewhere.
Radiator and upper radiator hose is two common leak areas. Water pump is another on these engines together with that coolant tank and cap already replaced.
