One of our tow vehicles is a 2005 GMC 2500 Quadrasteer.

We wanted the best fuel economy possible, heck with GCWR. I had trouble getting the weight transfer right. The results were not good.

GM, baby... we love their full-size trucks and full-size SUVs. There was nothing about the competition that pulled us away, a few months ago, from choosing to go with a full-size GM vehicle, yet again... the GMC Sierra Denali HD with the time-tested and respected Duramax/Allison combination. Great quality. Great features. Beautiful design. GM can, sometimes, cost a wee-bit more, but the small margin of cost is not a significant concern - all things considered.

We've had both F-150s and F-250s in the past and they're good trucks. They're just not as appealing, to us, as Silverados and Sierras.

What? No v6 SUV option? I'm outta here. (Well, I think our SUV it's a truck compared to our daily driver.)

2500 diesel / 25 EB ...see avatar ... great combo for us. We wanted to get a VW, but the local dealer said that they would NOT warranty any drivetrain or suspension issues that might arise on the Touareg if we pulled the AS w/ EQ WD hitch.

I'm hoping to use my 2010 Sport Trac Adrenalin to tow my AS when it's finished.
Has anyone used an Adrenalin as a TV before? If so what did you pull?
