Ours is around 8600lbs with 6.2l, not sure of the CCC. Ours also came with all the towing features, brake controller etc, but no hitch.

My 2009 Suburban is ok with the trailer I have for towing the Flagstaff. TT is 4400lb yellow sticker and 5100lb CAT scale weight.

Towing up grades 7-8% will put you at 3-4000 RPMs which is unnerving but not out of line. Wind loading is the bigger issue since the TT is a big front or side sail. Not likely a way to deal with that without a deflector.

I need the passenger capacity too, but load the TT with the gear since I'm close to the GAWR loaded. I get 8-12 MPG CDN average depending on grades with the 4.3L 3.42 axle.

I tow 5000km per year so I don't plan to upgrade till the new small diesels hit the market.

I added the aux transmission cooler which was not part of the HD towing package. Towing capacity for the 4x4 is 5400lb no cooler, 7900lb with cooler. My CCC is around 1600 lb per the GM build sheet and stickers in the door.
