If you get an Excursion you should get the diesel. Tows the boat no problem.

We bought an Excursion at the beginning of the season and have racked up 45k miles on it. We have no complaints other that we have to drive to much. It is great for long trips and feels very safe at all speeds, although it tops out around 94.

I would buy a Burban if they would put the Duramax and Allison in it.

ps. almost all our miles were towing atound 12k lbs. It pulls great.
