I'm following this thread because I think we should one day replace our Ram with something more comfortable for a family of 5 plus friends...

We have a lot of things to consider in addition to towing capacity, but thought I would put some numbers and links down:

'16 Chevy Suburban will tow up to 8300#.

Link to Chevy.com

The '16 Nissan Passenger NV 3500, 8700#

Link to Nissan.com

And the '16 Ford Expedition, 9200#

Link to Ford.com

Of course, all have to have max tow package...

With an 11000 lb gvwr it will answer a lot of family towing needs too bad it is only fleet offered. Chevy could make a mint in the towing industry with this.

Don't forget the conversion van market with the Duramax Chevy van with 10k towing capabilities. And that would be an easy pulling 10k, not a maxxed out 9k with a gasser.

We had a diesel Suburban as one of our medic units when I did that in another life... Man that thing was a BEAST.

Was that one of the 6.2 or 6.5's? I don't think they have put a DMax in a Burb, although there are custom shops that do.

I do not know, it was 15 years ago... But it was a diesel monster, we also had a few of the original Broncos and then eventually went to Excursions in diesel. Now they have 2500 chevy D-maxs

EDIT: Looked it up, might have been a GMC suburban not Chevy...
Very similar looking example:
