SAE J2807 Recommend tow ratings - ratings change?

I'm looking to upgrade my '14 1500 Silverado to a 2500 and I'm looking at the tow ratings on both the Chevy and GMC and the '16 are towing less then a '15. Has the tow rating process change? Am I missing something?


this if for GMC, but Chevy is the same:

Wow, that's almost a 3,000lb difference between a '16 and my '11 2500.

yeah I know, I'm talking to Chevy right now and they're telling me that only the 2wd Duramax reg cab long bed can tow #17,9.

The dbl cab diesel, 4wd can tow #16k

My '11 2500 Crew 4x4 8' bed was rated at 15,500 or 15,700, and the rest of the specs are almost identical. I believe my payload was 2486lbs. where the '16 is 2423.

Tow ratings in this case doesn't mean much since the payload of 16k would 3200 lbs at 20% and 4000 lbs at 25% pin weight which is way over the payload of 2500 diesel.

My 5er on the scales weights 11380 lbs with 2740 pin weight. Added the 700 lbs for the hitch, people and misc I have in the truck it would take 3440 lbs of payload to stay within specs.

We may have to change our 5'er options or go to a 3500 instead.
