I have owned a 2000 Suburban 1500 and started towing our 25 ft. Argosy with it with no problem what so ever. A 2500 Suburban would be even better. I've never had a single problem with any GM product. Unitl I purchaed a Dodge diesel several years ago I drove 1500 series Chevy trucks. Never a problem with any of them. I can say them same thing about my Dodge. Very reliable vehicles. In my opinion, the Suburban is one of the finest all around vehicles. It has the size and comfort.

The only upside to the Sequoia is the every day use might be easier due to it being a little shorter.

Let me know what you think.
Thanks!

The Toyota can be bought with a 10.000 LB tow capacity and a 5.7L V-8 that will out perform the Chevy in every way except seating capacity, that includes resale value. And lets face it, the Chevy Suburban isn't a looker !

Can't argue with the track record of the Burb, I just think it's ugly. And those of you who belittle Toyota because of it's recent problems, let's not forget that GM very nearly went out of business last year, bailed out with taxpayer money, and could still be in big trouble down the road.

Bottom line here is the Toyota is a better truck on paper and IMO much better looking as well.

In the parking lot at Lowes last week I noticed Toyotas large truck only had
five lug bolts per each wheel. Chevy's 2500 have eight and I believe Ford
and Chevy's 1500 have six lug bolts per wheel.

Hi, I'm not a GM fan or a Toyota fan, but I believe a half ton tow vehicle should stop at 25 feet or less. [my opinion] Unless you are in Canada, then you can tow a 34 footer with a Pinto and a Bambi with a Kenworth. [with a high dollar hitch]

i like the suburban better with the longer wheelbase for towing.my only concern would be the size of the engine that comes with this size vehicle.i think the 6.0 gas is the largest they come right now?reminds me of the 70s gas crunch when they downsized all the engines.the 8.1 gas with the 2500 suburban is the real ticket.i pull with a 2005 excursion diesel ltd and have driven the 2500 suburban with the 6.0 gas,and it would not be enough for me.check it out and see.

without getting into the whole 'pulling an American icon with an American truck' discussion... I thought the major drawbacks, if not showstoppers with the TOYota (compared to a 'burbon) are: very limited interior cargo space, and tiny gas tank...
