Are you wanting a truck or another Suburban type vehicle? I bought this 2024 Chevy High Country with a 6.2L engine 3 or 4 months ago. With 420 hp it has plenty of power to tow a trailer.

That's a beautiful truck...too nice for me

Looking for a Suburban type vehicle...we have a GMC Sierra pickup.

I have looked a little online...lots of choices out there.

Time to post in the wanted section...thanks for all the input.

I had a 2011 Tahoe with the 5.3/6 speed and a lifter went bad around 160k miles. Mobil 1 and frequent changes since new. Cheaper to put a new short block in it than repair the lifter. Replaced it with a 2018 Yukon Denali with the 6.2 and 10 speed - significantly better drivetrain. Have 154k on that now... Knock on wood no drivetrain issues to date. Can't say enough about the 6.2/10 speed combo, gets 21 MPG on highway and plenty of power.

I'd suggest checking out Carmax, a longtime car buddy of mine worked for them for about 10 years. They are picky and typically wholesale vehicles which they don't want to sell on the lot.

Dang, reading the issues with the 2011 5.3, I'm hoping I'm lucky. 2011 Silverado, 135K and same Mobil 1 10-30 syn and Mobil 1 filters every 5-6k. Plan on trailering the Harley to Tucson in January with it...fingers crossed now.
I'm surprised you are getting 21 with the 6.2. I've always heard they are "thirsty". Must be the 10 speed helping that.

Don't know about the 6.2 with 10 speed.

My 06 Yukon XL Denali with 6.0 and 4L65E and full time all wheel drive wouldn't get 20 mpg off a cliff.

14 around town. Don't know what it gets on the highway without anything in tow, as I just don't drive it on the highway unless I am towing.

Likely a moot point since Wilma has decided to go a different route, but, my DD is a Silverado with the 3.0 DuraMax and I get similar city milage. This pix taken after putzing around Yellowstone park for a couple days.
Big block torque at 1,700 rpm. 10 speed trans is silky smooth without the annoying hunt and jerk of AFM 5.3's I've driven. Supposedly the newer DFM engines are smoother??

The ole 6.0s .... the mpg of a BB with the power of a 5.3.

All that changed when they went to direct injection, the 5.3 and 6.2 get roughly the same mpgs albeit you should run premium in a 6.2 with the 11.1:1 compression. Ive owned several of the new 5.3 and 6.2s and can vouch for the mpg claim. The power difference is amazing and I will never go back to a 5.3.

I decided to avoid all the lifter failure issues of the AFM/DOD system by going to an HD with the L8T 6.6L gas.
