What is the best tow vehicle

Recently tried towing with my new Chrysler Pacifica and even though it is rated at 3,500 lbs. it is a real dog! So now I'm looking to buy a truck or SUV like a Tahoe 4x4 just for towing my PS-197. I'm looking for feedback on tow rigs model year 2003 or newer.

I tow my Maristar with a '05 GMC Yukon with the air autoride package. Works great. Previous was a '99 Chevy Suburban. Also a great towing with. Before that was a '91 Ford F-150. It had the in line 6 cyl and was not enough power for that size load.

Current tow vehicles are 2002 Suburban and 1998 Tahoe. Both are great tow vehicles. The 'burb falls under "they don't build 'em like they used to". My Tahoe has the old 5.7 which lends to much more pulling power and is built like a brick S%*thouse....the 2002 is next generation Chev platform and seems to be "the softer side of trucks".....much better fuel mileage though. Next go-round, I'm looking to get back into a quad-cab chev pickup.

Remember...anything looks good towing an MC

Maybe it is just me but that new Tahoe looks awesome! I am sure it is up to the task and the looks are a plus!
