Well I can tell you that the torque from the new one is the same as the old 3/4 (which I have) and that is perfectly adequate to tow our 25 foot Eddie Bauer... but it's geared a little lower... then again, the 3/4 has a curb weight of 6400+lbs.

I got a phone call today from Chevy dealer reguarding the 2015 Suburban 2500. I asked if they were in, he said no all 2500 were custom. Anyone know if that is for all dealers? I like idea the two rows of seats fold down, but I am curious to see price.

sbb they may have misunderstood the question. No 2500 series in the Suburban Yukon for 2015. Chevy site says no large engine, only the 5.3L. Need to go to the Silverado/Sierra trucks to get a 6.2L.

This is correct.

The 6.2 is also the power plant in the Denali and Escalade. Also, on GM family first web site I can't build a 2500 Suburban for the 2015 MY

Something to consider is waiting for the 2015 Expedition Max. Current ones have about the same space as a Suburban but they have independent rear suspension which handles and rides better. The 2015 will get many of the new F150's aluminum parts and the Echoboost engine. It should be a dramatic leap forward.

Unfortunately, the 2500 was discontinued in 2014 and GM hasn't announced any plans to create one for the new body style.

I took the 2015 Suburban LTZ for a spin yesterday and I was mightily impressed with it. It's quiet, refined and powerful. The magnetic ride suspension does a remarkable job of limiting body roll in the corners. The version I tried had the 3.08 rear as opposed to the 3.42 from the max towing package. I imagine the 3.42 will only drive better.

The biggest difference is how much quieter the interior is as compared to the outgoing model. This thing is going to be majorly comfortable for long drives.

Apparently they're 2 inches shorter, 2 inches longer and 2 inches wider; I imagine that combination makes them appear more car-like.

If their 2 inches shorter and 2 inches longer, they should be the same as previous gen?

Sorry, yeah, I mean the body is 2 inches longer from nose to tail and 2 inches shorter from roof to road.
