  1. Just picked up my 2020 Denali Ultimate Diesel with standard bed this week. Was on a QC hold for almost 2 months at the plant while it was closed... and I still managed to get a CEL with 24 miles on it due to a kinked aux cooler line from the factory. Oh well, here she is!
  2. Just picked up my new Sierra Denali Diesel yesterday. Ordered beginning of February, built March 4, under quality hold for a month and a half while the factory was closed. Finally delivered to the dealer and I picked it up last night. Back to the service dept with 24 miles with P026A CEL.
  3. I ordered a Denali a few months ago... still waiting for it to be delivered (it was built March 4th). Most people on this forum would go with the AT4 which makes sense. I agree that it looks better and has more off road capability than the Denali. For me, there were a few things that made decide to go with the Denali at the time, but I would definitely reconsider now. First, I will never go off roading. It isn't something I have any desire to do, and isn't in my line of work. Maybe a dirt/gravel road here or there, but nothing that requires a lift. My truck is used for mostly woodworking and landscaping work around the house, commuting in poor upstate NY weather, and some family road trips. The adaptive ride control makes more sense to me from a comfort standpoint. Secondly, the lift/height make things a little more difficult for my family. My wife is on the shorter side, and I've got a 4 year old son. Easier ingress/egress is important to them (I personally don't care). Additionally, the height would make things a bit tricky if I am doing work on it in my garage. Third, I get GM Employee pricing. When I ordered, the AT4s were actually slightly more expensive as the employee discount wasn't very high. The AT4 is a more desired trim, and I think inventory was low, so they didn't have a big discount on it. That has changed, and they now have the same discount as Denali's. If the discount were the same, I probably would have reconsidered. A similar spec AT4 is actually about $4000 less than the Denali I ordered- and what do I get for that $4000? Nicer leather, power steps, 22" wheels, and adaptive ride control? I wouldn't consider that a great value. And that is why most people should go for the AT4.
  4. I've been stuck at 3800 since 3/4/20. My current lease was up last week, but I'm still waiting for my truck to be delivered. Not sure if the spray in bedliner for the Denali is holding things up or whether the closure would affect already built trucks. Hopefully it will be delivered soon... Knowing my luck, I'll get Covid and be on a 2 week quarantine when it finally gets delivered. I'm a healthcare worker in NY directly caring for these patients, so it is bound to happen.
  5. I placed an order on February 6 for a Sierra Denali Ultimate 3.0 diesel with standard bed. My dealer just let me know that it hit 3800 today! That is crazy fast. He thinks it should be at the dealer (upstate NY) in about 2 weeks. I can't wait!
  6. I had to order mine for my 3.0 Sierra Denali. GMC's website won't even let you build a 4x4 denali with a standard bed. Mine was just accepted into production this week, hopefully should have it within the next couple months.
  7. Just placed an order yesterday for a 2020 Crew Cab 4x4 Sierra Denali 3.0 with Ultimate package and standard bed. Almost all Sierra Denali's are short bed, but I wanted the extra length for sheets of plywood for my wood shop (with multipro tailgate). Dealer has an allocation for next week, and made a bet that it would be delivered late March, but I'm guessing closer to mid April realistically. I've got a 17 Silverado Double Cab with 5.3 that I'll be turning the lease in at the end of March. It was a good truck and winter beater, but I needed something with a bigger cab.
  8. I thought I'd join up seeing as I just purchased a 17 LT Z71 in Graphite Metallic cause my other car doesn't fit the child seat too well. I wanted to closely match my other Chevy... I think I did OK. Sometimes the Graphite metallic looks a little blue/green. Plans aren't too much, just black bow ties and some black wheels for winter tires. Maybe a cat back exhaust at some point, but I've already got a loud V8 if I want some noise.
