    Lindsay is about to be driving a new Cummins like mine at this rate...
    I think you can if your a Costco member and grab a 19 suburban premier with 6.2 with the Costco discount and rebates is should be in the mid $70s. We love our 18 Denali XL over the 16 suburban LT. https://www-roadandtrack-com.cdn.amp...co-escalade%2F

    I let the Costco lapse... the only one thatís close isnít convenient. Lol
    But either way, thereís no way in hell Iíd pay over 70k for a half ton gasser SUV! Thatís 20k more than my Cummins cost! And I have a heated steering wheel... lmao
    Where ya at GM?!?
    I love the Yukon/Tahoe/Burbís... but the prices have gotten out of control.

    Oh, and I tried to build a RST Chevy with the 10spd and 4wd. You canít get the heavy towing package! Wtf?!?

    The RST 6.2L with 10speed is only available with the 3.23 axle ratio and that is the towing killer, honestly even the 3.42 is weak sauce. With 22Ē rims itís even worse. Although the RST does appear to tow 8100# which is near max for any suburban package.

    With the same transmission, Ford offers the 3.55 ratio, makes a big difference in towing.

    It will likely be next season before I hook the boat up to the suburban but I will report back on how it tows. My 6.2 Silverado with a 6 speed transmission (and 3.42ís if I recall) does a fine job, so Iím guessing the 6.2 Suburban with a 10 speed and 3.23ís will too.

    I have no doubt you will be plenty happy pulling 5700# max (boat and trailer weight) with that Burban.

    I mostly use the wife's '16 slide esv (8 spd) to tow the Max and it does a solid job. Due to the air suspension have to use a 4" drop ball. Average 9.5 towing when we took it to central Texas. I would estimate its a bit heavier combo than 5700# though.

    Believe the boat dry weight is 4400#, add 60ish gallons of fuel (400#) and then in my case 750# lead and looking closer to 7k not including another couple hundred in gear/anchor.

    Really looking forward to trading it in for a lightly used navigator with that sweet HO 3.5 in a couple years. Have towed with my fathers plain jane '16 ecoboost 3.5 with just the 6spd and power wise I liked it better than the 6.2 in the slade. Gas mileage is not any better, but similar to a diesel rather than kick down a gear it just spools a bit more boost since at towing speeds you are basically in the fat end of the torque curve.

    Yeah we have a 15 Expedition with the 3.5 and I usually just lock out 6th gear. With the 3.15 rear axle that keeps the rpms right around 2000 at 70 mph and rarely downshifts. If I use 6th the rpms drop to like 1600-1700 and I find it will then down shift to make it up over passes on the freeway. If we had the 3.73 we probably wouldnít need to lock out 6th. This is with a Mojo that clocked in at 6900 on the Cat Scales

    My wife got the front windows/windshield tinted and I lowered the rear ~2Ē with some drop springs and shock relo brackets to level it out. We are really enjoying the suburban! Hereís a pic on the blue ridge parkway from trip to the mountains a couple weeks ago.
