I would have loved to get one of these, but I had to settle on an Excursion instead.

I picked up a clean 07.5 2500 suburban a few months back.... Its begging for a duramax. The 6.0 doesnt feel like it has near enough power.

That is seriously the ultimate vehicle.

  • Turning radius equivalent to a small car (Not even exaggerating. 2015 Toyota Corolla turning radius? 35.6'. Quadrasteer Suburban turning radius? 35.2')
  • Probably gets mid 20 mpg's on the highway if it has a selectable economy tune
  • Could tow 12,000 lbs without breaking a sweat and could maneuver the trailer better than any truck out there
  • Can haul you, your wife, your four kids, and the dog with room to spare
  • Could blow the doors off most vehicles on the road
  • Bulletproof engine and transmission combination, given you aren't out bagging the piss out of it on a regular basis
It's only downside is that the quadrasteer is tough to find replacement parts for, and that you can't tow a gooseneck/fiver.

People that are in the market for duramax suburban are probably more interested in hauling people than hauling 5th wheels. That's why I bought my wife an Excursion. Hauls all the kids and can tow my 22' flatbed with some toys on it. My truck is for pulling the 5er.

I didnt think that they'd use the quadrasteer rear end as it is not as durable as the HD. They replace the rear diff with the donor diff IIRC

TexasRedNeck the Quadrasteer rear axle (9.75") can be used behind a Duramax. Just don't want to put a whole lot of torque to it. About max you wanna throw at it would be about 900-1000 ft/lbs

Thanks for the clarification. 900ft lbs. hmm. Should be sufficient in a burb. Lol. :thumb
