Something there seems off. I haven't looked into to it much but I was thinking the '17 was supposed to have that number increased from my '11 due to the new engine. That chart is telling me that the 6.0 can pull more trailer. The rear end gear can't make up for the diesel power that much, I call BS. There are half ton gassers that are encroaching on 14,000.


I bet it has a lower tow rating because of payload calculations on the fifth wheel pin. The diesel eats up a lot of payload that the gas doesn't so weight wise the gasser can haul more even though less torque. The denali has all of those toys which means it can haul even less.. That combined with the 3.73 gear equals less towing ability.
