'01-06 was that body style with the 8.1liter. In '07, they changed body styles and the biggest engine was the 6.0 in the 2500. Along with that came a drop in tow rating to 9400lbs.

No more production big blocks after that point. Dunno. Ask GM.

I read that it was due to poor sales of the big block. They don't even sell a 2500 to the general public at all anymore, only to fleet buyers. Supposedly this year they were selling a 3500 to fleets (which was never available to the public) 2016 Chevy Suburban 3500HD Engine, Details & More | GM Authority but still with the 6.0 gas engine.

Most people buying pickups in that range wanted the diesel engines, not the really big gas engines that only got 8-12 mpg. Remember how expensive gasoline was in those years?

The "hd" on the 2500 pickups meant it had some 1 ton components that the regular 2500 didn't have. And extra spring in the rear, driveshaft was larger, and a few other things that I can't recall.
