    Acceleration 1 out 10? The diesel has much higher horsepower in the 1500 to 4000 rpm range than the gasoline.

    Looks like they stole the volume / track seek/ next buttons from Chrysler who would have these buttons behind the steering wheel. The blank button in the center should have been the hazard button.

    Diesels are awesome. When I lived in Europe, I bought my wife an Audi Q7 with a 4.2l V8 twin turbo and that thing was filled with torque and was fast as hell for an SUV. I drove a 6.3l C63 AMG at the time and felt her car was fast and quite fun. Diesels are totally suited to large luxury SUVs. I hope to see more…but V8s, not V6s.

    friends! Don't let the stories and beautiful pictures confuse you, GM
    this is a dangerous company for all public, anyone who buys a new car
    from GM, throws his money in the garbage bin, at the moment of
    malfunctioning you are alone and may God help you, in this company there
    is no customer service in general, and the management does not care,
    you will regret your loss of money. Be careful from GM!!!

    im kind of surprised you scored the Denali that low. its 4 points lower than a LX570 which i dont agree with. yes i agree the Lexus is better quality and offroader but its not as good of a daily driver which you scored it as.

    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.

    Interior wise, it’s a miss. For the money I would go Lincolns SUVs. The trim and model still comes in $30,000 less than an Escalade and you get more power. GM isn’t being innovative enough.

    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.
