Dirk, must comment on your comparison between 13 and 14 Denali, just bought 1 3 days ago. Mine was bought after three weeks of research of competitors, including consumer reports where it is a recommended SUV. Suggest u pull up the 2014 manual for the Denali or get 1 at the Dealer. Mine didn't have 1 but u need to compare it to the 2013. It is on line with some searching, think it just came out. They have added Voice command to Voice screen navigation, 8 additions to the safety features, Dealer said there was no difference but he has about 20 2013 on the lot and wanting $2500 less for them than the 2014.
I traded a 2010 Explorer my 3rd. one but I just came back from a 1800 mile trip 1 way, took the kids and it was 1 uncomfortable ride. Does not have all the features in the Denali.
MSRP I think about $5000.00 lower in my area. Mine is fully loaded with the rear seat entertainment, power door locks, color touch navigation. All you need in TX. Love driving it and it remembers seat positions and adjusts automatically when you sit down. Also really like the MPH showing in the windshield (keep your eyes on the road). Think I counted 8 drink holders.
I am going to enjoy being able to have someone sit on 1 side of 3rd row seat fold down other and lay down on a trip.
Like I told a friend has everything but a john.
