I purchased the Yukon Denali in May of 2006. The truck rides great. The interior is roomy, the leather & components are sturdy & well built. My traction control light comes on occasionally but go off within minutes. The only major issue Ive had was a switch went out in the transmission causing the car to not recognize neutral & sometimes not go into reverse. This was fixed under warranty & has been problem free for the last year. One great thing is the saftey issue. My car was broad sided by a car running a light at 30 mph. The car was damged but barly felt it. The blue green color looks great changing color in the sun but shows all finger prints & dirt.
6.2 gives plenty of power & pick up. Very sturdy & safe. Handles great for a SUV. Leather wears well. Heated steering wheel odd but nice touch. Navigation reliable. Power lift gate, remote start very nice. Power folding middle seats great.
Manual shift mode works well but boring due to +/- button. Moving lever up/down would be more enjoyable. The steering wheel adjustment should be motorized instead of old school lever style.
What a truck. I traded in a 2004 Toureg V8 fully loaded for this Denali. Plenty of power, comfort, and style! I was very impressed with the car when we took it for a test drive and continue to be impressed with it 11 months later. Good build quality and I do enjoy that big 6.2 liter V8 rumble when you start it. Great truck for long trips.
Leather drivers seat is very comfortable, V8 power, quality of the interior, speaker system.
While the sound out of the stereo is good, the Denali could use a more accurate navigation system and you can't always see all the available channels for the satellite radio.
This is a very nice vehicle. I love to drive this and it has a lot of power, and has good handling. The 10 Bose speakers are really good. We checked out the Tahoe, Armada, X5, Escalade, and Pathfinder, and this had more power (except Escalade) than the rest of them and better fuel economy. This also has power running boards that people really look at. Very comfortable 4 captain heated seats.
I purchased this 07 Denali, would have rather had a Tahoe, I think better styling. But love this Denali, fun to drive, comfortable, great turning radius. As most have mentioned could be better MPG, but for it's size not bad, 16-18. But I have to bite the bullet and drive this size vehicle due to bad knees, back, ankles, so need this size and would absolutely buy another. One of best vehicles I have ever had, no problems. The vehicle and dealers service dept. are better than sales dept. Wouldn't buy from this dealer again. Great in winter in MN, now have 35,000 on it no problems.
Size, comfort, performance, styling other than front end, I think Tahoe looks better. Bought mainly to get the 6.2 engine.
Wish they had a place for sunglasses and cell phone storage. I don't need or want 3rd row seating wish GMC would offer without 3rd row,like Tahoe, giving a flat floor and not having to store them all the time, which are basicly useless, no adult and most kids I know can't sit in them.
After coming from a BMW X5 pile of junk, this Yukon is a dream come true. Very comfortable to drive, pleanty of power, love the xm & navigation with back up camera. Not a single problem so far, and gas mileage is much better than the BMW. I look at it as the cost of transportation, how else are you going to get 4-7 people around in one vehicle?
XM radio, back up camera, navigation, OnStar, nice interior
