  • I actually don’t like the seat drop thing because if you have a car seat or booster you can’t use it vs other cars where the whole seat stays in sitting position but comes off the rails and goes forward.

  • Should have had a Duramax 6.6 V8. Lower displacement V6 is not enough displacement to offset the overall weight. You're gonna put too much strain on the powertrain. NO.

  • I don't really understand power tailgates. My Acadia has one, it's slightly nice to open the door for the delivery person at the grocery store when doing pickup. Other than that, I don't get it. It's slower than just lifting the tailgate. I turn it off usually.

  • “How much is this Denali?” “Only 79,000, and it comes with every luxury feature you ever wanted”. Me takes a seat behind the steering wheel, looking at THIS dashboard:” You know what? I am happy, really happy!” “ Oh great, shall we go to my place and sign..? “ “No, that’s not what I mean. I am happy I saved 79,000 Dollar. Have a wonderful day.

  • This is why you are downright an idiot to buy anything from GM. Corner cutting all over the interior, can’t figure out how to include adaptive cruise as a standard feature like a base model Honda Civic for 21,000, and can’t be bothered to make their styling on the exterior differ much from any other brands they own. This design is a rebadged Tahoe. It’s literally the same design minus the lighting.

  • Doug, two things. You reviewed the new Tahoe High Country very early, as in maybe the day they were released, certainly the first week. However, due to supply chain issues during the pandemic, the air-ride suspension was not available on the first few shipments of 2021 Tahoes/Burbans/Denalis etc. It is also why the Escalade came out a few months after the others. So my question is are you sure the Tahoe you reviewed had the air-ride suspension, and if not, because you mentioned thinking the Tahoe was a bit smoother than this vehicle, is there a chance the regular non-air ride system actually superior?

  • It's nice, but there are WAY too many cheap materials and it lacks good design (the exterior is bland and interior is monotone and not worth the price tag). I wouldn't even think about getting this truck!

  • I was excited about the diesel version and was in the market for 3rd row suv.. after being told by clueless dealers that diesel was not available and seeing the poor panel gaps, cheap materials, questionable build quality and absurd sticker price we decided on a palisade which has some features even this Denali is lacking and more than $30k cheaper.. I am baffled how someone can happily spend 80k on a product like this

  • I've only driven manual diesel cars, but from my own experience, they're harder to stall when driving off from a standstill, and their bottom-end torque, combined with the lower fuel consumption due to the diesel fuel's greater density make diesel engines slightly more practical to drive. Also, fuel economy in diesel engines is not as sensitive to driving style as in petrol/gasoline engines. The disadvantages would be the low redline (so they don't sound as nice as most petrol/gasoline engines), the slightly greater maintenance costs and oil change needs, along with exhaust fluid replenishment, the higher upfront purchase cost, and in the American context, greater taxes on automotive diesel fuel. They still deserve a chance, though.

Even family, the driver can simply pull over at a fast station and type in the navigation. I get annoyed when im driving and my passengers insist on changing the radio station or audio constantly. Ha!

  • This seems like a very niche vehicle to me. It would work great for someone who needs three rows on a regular basis, AND needs to periodically tow a trailer. For pretty much any other use case I feel like you'd be much better off with a Hyundai Palisade or a minivan. From the footage in this video of the interior, I see no hint or indication or hint of "luxury" here. If you throw $70K at a Genesis GV80, an X5, an X7 or even (God forbid) an Infiniti, I promise you will feel like you're in a luxury vehicle.
