Jealous. I got the 5.3 in the 'burb. Wish I had a nice new one with a 6.2L. But, mine's just getting broken in. Only has 128k on it.

What others said about the 5.3 Chevy is true. It is a workhorse and does great towing. I have a 2002 Tahoe with 5.3 215,000miles original motor original transmission, a saab 9-7x with the 5.3 96,000miles and also a 2008 Denali with the 6.2L. The 6.2 is an absolute monster and does tow slightly better than the Tahoe but with the AWD and 6.2 it gets slightly worse gas mileage. I will be headed the 10hrs one way to Brostock the June with the XLV so with gear, coolers and people we will be at 6,000 pounds or more and I will be driving the Tahoe with 215,000 miles on it. Just hate putting miles on the newer trucks and the Tahoe tows great. I would say they are the best all around SUV I have owned.
Also you can get a very clean 2000-2006 tahoe for under $10,000 or a 2007 and up for around $17,000Boat: 09 Moomba Gravity Games
