Like you a much better towing experience.
Same thing here. I had a 2011 2500HD 6.0 gasser, and even towing 8000lbs on flat Florida highways, it would HOWL trying to get up to speed and going on overpasses. Got rid of it and went to a 2013 Duramax, and it was a whole new world. We just did a six hour pull on that same route with a new 10,000lb TT and it was a great experience. Maybe some don't care how hard they push their equipment, I do. 40 years in the automotive repair business showed me over and over what happens when you do.
