While the many "cons" make this vehicle sound rather bad, I'm also being rather harsh, given how particular I am with vehicles. But I typically find quite a few cons with ANY vehicle I drive. The Denali is just the best overall package of any full-size luxury SUV in this price segment. It looks great, has lots of power (6.0l V8), handles quite well for it's size (AWD), very comfortable (auto-ride, leather seats), and has LOTS of optional features that I can't live without (Sat Nav, touchscreen LCD, rear DVD, sunroof, 20" wheels, etc).
The biggest compliants I have is with the stereo and rear seats. The Bose stereo really *could* sound better. It tends to sound rather flat regardless of changes made to the basic 3-band EQ or DSP's (which does help). Of course my previous vehicle had a $2,500 sound system, so it may not be the best comparision. I still have high expectations in this category since I've heard MUCH better factory stereo's in a Cadillac, Lexus, etc. The GPS Navigation should also be a little more "user friendly" as it is in other luxury vehicles.
The rear-bucket seats compliant is really more of a passenger issue, and since I never sit back there, I'm not too worried about it. But honestly, rear-bucket seats SHOULD recline.
While an MSRP of around $50k may sound steep, it's still several grand cheaper than the very comparable caddy, and IMHO... looks better as well. So until they at least update the front grill on the '07 Denali, this body style is still my favorite. If you're looking for the best value in a loaded full-size luxury SUV, definately put the Denali at the top of your shopping list! And as long as they have the new '07 body style and gas prices stay high, finding a cheap used Denali isn't hard at all.
