If you are truly serious about getting an SUV that will tow 9k safely and have around 25k to spend, I would look into duraburb. It's been mentioned hundreds of times on numerous sites so a little research will net you plenty of info. They only do 03+ suburbans and yukon XLs, but you buy your vehicle, they will drop in a rebuilt LBZ duramax and rebuilt Allison 6spd. This will be by far the best option for towing comfort. If you have the funds I'd recommend this route.

If you are not "anti-van" like my wife a 1ton van would do the job and have maybe a little room to spare. As far as the excursions and suburbans which I happen to like a lot, I can't see tying up a ton of money or paying a premium for a rare highly sought after tow vehical. I would consider a crew cab pickup if hauling more than 5 people is not a high priority.

I never had any problems towing a 12,500 pound boat and 4 people up to lake Ontario for 2wks fishing thru you do have to beef up a little on the rear end as it is on the soft side but that's just me , (and when the wife packed a suitcase for vac ,there wasn't much left in the house god bless her )

Nissan Armada SUV can pull 9100 lbs.....

of course the gurus out there can tweak the numbers depending on what you are pulling and what its dry weight is, etc...
