Default Denali or LTZ

Ok guys I have been pondering this for awhile please give me your thoughts, here are mine:
Denali: Pro; Love the 6.2l and the Space
Con; MPG and not in love with styling
LTZ: Styling is great, better MPG than Denali
Con: 5.3L

Please give me your opinons

BTW has anyone heard GM may be announcing 0% around Pres. Day??

I'd get the Denali. The styling will probably grow on you and your getting a better package and an upscaler package than the LTZ.

They are both great SUVs. For $3000 more on MSRP than the Tahoe LTZ, I'd get the Denali. As for gas milage, well its much big of a difference. I have seen Hwy mileage around 19-20 and 15-16 in city on the Denali. Im sure you will like the Denali and it will grow into you. For me get the Denali.

Good Luck man

get what you can afford. The denali will hold a better resale value.

Go for the Denali, it's just an amazing vehicle.

I just registered today for this website since I just traded in my 04 Z71 for an 07 Denali. I had the same issue as you are currently having, as far as going with the Denali or the LTZ. I'll tell you what, the 6.2 on the Denali moves that truck VERY well. I love it, everything about it, from the power boards to the bigger beefier engine, to the 6 speed tranny. Good luck with whatever you choose, because I know it wasn't easy for me in the beginning, but now, I couldn't be happier with the decision I made!

I had to make this difficult choice myself. One other factor to consider is that your supposed to run premium unleaded in the Denali where the Tahoe does just fine on 87 octane. Now if gas prices shoot up again, sometimes the difference between regular and premium can be as much as 40 cents. I was really on the fence, but my wife liked the looks of the Tahoe better and with the new chrome package on the LTZ, it almost has the appearance of an Escalade, so that's what we went with. Still you can't go wrong with either one.

I just saw this post, so I don't know if you're still looking for opinions. Although I can't vouch for the Denali since I don't have one, I have to tell you that I love my 07 LTZ. Personally I think the front end looks better on the Tahoe, but that's personal opinion. I absolutely love everything about the LTZ. Not one complaint. I have a little over 2,000 miles and I average 16mpg. Not great, but not that bad considering this is a beast of a vehicle. Bottomline, whatever you get, you'll be driving with a smile on your face. I get compliments and looks everyday!

MPG really shouldn't be that much of an issue since we are driving suvs you know? My Denali Averages about 14mpg and I have a lil' heavy foot and 24s. If you are trying to save on gas, I would probably get something like an A4 or S4 wagon, still a lot of space, but not so much money for gas.

I like the styling of both vehicles. The deanli will have a better resale, and I'm seeing the new Tahoes and Escalades everywhere, but rarely see the Denali's or even base Yukons driving around.
