Yes the new setups are a bit more confusing than the ol gear ratios for towing
For example my '06 Nissan armada has a 3.357:1 for its final gear and tows 9,000lbs w/ 5 speed transmission with tow/haul mode.
when i was younger you needed a minimum of 3.73 for medium towing. now it gets a lil confusing
Heck even new Chevy Silverado 2500HD uses 6speed w 3.73's instead of 4.10's!
