I am really close to trading my GMC Sierra for a Jeep Grand ecodiesel. Is anyone out there using the JGC with the diesel for towing a bass boat?

I know it will pull it without issue but how is handling, sway, stopping? I usually fish locally but I do tow my boat 2-6 hours about 5 times a year and maybe once about 10 hours. The rest is daily driving so I would say 85% daily driving and 15% towing. I've towed a bass boat with a JGC with a hemi in the past without issue. I am afraid I will notice a huge difference from the truck and won't feel safe. Thoughts?

I have a 23ft cuddy cabin. 4200lbs dry weight. Probably closer to 5k with all the fluids, fuel, and fresh water on board.

I've never and an issue. I get about 17mpg pulling it around town.

just make sure you get the tow package. You'll be fine.
