Yes this is a gas motor. GM in their brilliance does not offer the diesel in their Suburbans. This new Suburban is O.K. other than when it gets hot out and the electronics retard the motor. It literally will almost not pull off the line when it gets a little hot.

Going Backward with the Sequoia
I think you'll be disappointed going from a Suburban to a Sequoia. We had a Sequoia for 5 years -- great car as far as dependability goes, but that 4.7L V8 is rated to pull just 6,500 pounds (and I think that's a generous.) We traded it for an Avalanche 6.0L with 4.10, probably the same powertrain as your Suburban, 4L70E transmission, etc. I know what you mean when you say that this engine doesn't have the responsiveness that you'd hope for in a 6.OL. But once it gets going, it DOES have a lot more torque than the Sequoia 4.7L -- there is no question about that. Our Avalanche pulls our 6,000 lb trailer far, far better than the Sequoia ever could; it is like night and day. I hope you can work through the issues with the Suburban - I really think you're better off.
