Anyone tow 6000 lb. trailer with a 4.7

I am aware that will tow on flatland but I live on a plateau and have to drive up grades of 6-12 percent to get home or away. I tow with a MB ML 320 now and have no trouble off the mountain but coming home I or I should say my wife as the last homeward stint is hers, has to downshift to 2nd gear for a short while because our 17 year old TV is getting long in the tooth and we are thinking of replacing before camping season rolls around and are interested in a Commander but don't know if the 4.7 will do the job or should we look for a Hemi?

Sorry, I have the 5.7 It can definitely handle that tow weight. My only problem with the Commander towing is the short wheel base. It really is affected by longer trailers.
