It might be even higher than that because of the much higher CR on the new 6.6 liter engine, possibly about 520 or 525 lbs feet of torque. OK, for the HP number from 401 bumped up 10.2 percent and ...

We found the new 6.6-liter V8 gas engine to be more than adequate for most uses. With a towing capacity of up to 16,600 pounds most weekend warriors will be able to take their boats to the lake or tow their toy haulers with sand buggies in the back out to the dunes, without paying almost $10k more for a diesel.

It still looks, um, interesting, but that’s okay because this brute can tow 35,500 pounds.

My 6.0 2500HD is a big girl and she isn’t easy on gas, but she can handle anything, never breaks, and will probably last forever.

Mine with the 3.73's is rated for 9,900lbs. It pulls my 8,500 lb fifth wheel ok but it definetly works the engine hard (RPMS) I'm sure 4.10's would make it better.
