    You heard what the guy said about the torque and then it sputters, not enough horsepower when going uphill pulling a trailer but I was hoping for at least a 5.3 liter V8 Duramax Deisel it could have been done just ask Gale Banks Performance, Oh well maybe 2022 will be the year to get it right. I love my GMC Sierra Duramax 2500 HD.

    They have the diesel at our local dealership. Itโ€™s spring here so we are putting flower plants in the bed. The Denali is great! I own the 4 year old version but $90g is way too much for it.

    I just bought a new Yukon Denali XL for my wife, but with the V8. I would only get the diesel if I had to tow significant loads over long distances. But again, a truck would do the h=job better. The driving comfort of a gas V8 is incomparably superior to a diesel... And I'm not talking about the sound!

    I think that cupholder placement is to not drip coffee on the centre console electronics. Ugh, they procreated [sigh] and doing child seats now? The only annoying thing in that SUV are the reviewers. Not very scientific. ๐Ÿคจ

    They made a huge mistake by not putting a larger diesel in it. Same torque as the gasser. No one is going to be towing all the time with these family SUVs. I can handle the lower MPGs when I need to tow occasionally.

    Ladies and gentlemen, dear followers, don't let the exciting pictures fool you, GENERAL-MOTORS's products have many mechanical faults, I write and share for your information, after many years of suffering, in GM, the customer service is not interested in any of the customer's problems, or in short, no customer service at all, be careful not to throw your money into the trash. This GM is a very dangerous company for the client and the tragic experiences I have experienced in great suffering. Be careful!!!!! ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ˜ฌAnd for all the fools who respond against me, I'm announcing that I've had ten tragic years of mechanical malfunctions without service, without a manufacturer's warranty, therefore you are the followers, along with the GM management you will have to enjoy my message for the next 10 years every morning and every night, and this only to save another potential customer, to eit-a-lot shit from GM you are welcome to enjoy ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘ŽAll websites and all communications

    I feel like GM really needs to take a step back and think about redoing the front ends on the majority of their vehicles. Chevy, GMC, Cadillac... they have gotten so overly busy with their front ends, headlights and oversized, gaudy grills. The back ends aren't much better either, and frankly they've been more of a follower than a leader anymore when it comes to innovation cross the board. I'm a big fan of GM engines but I feel like they've been making uglier and uglier vehicles as time goes on and seemingly less inclined to come up with new ideas. Cadillac's gotta be in its death throes at this point.
