  1. It's for the navigation to help load maps. I wouldn't remove it, I made that mistake in my 2021 Denali and got a pop-up error for weeks afterwards when trying to load maps that finally went away. So yea, I'd let it be unless you need to manually update the map software which I think is when you'd only have to remove it. Hope this helps Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  2. Can confirm lighting is just about barely acceptable... Not sure why with leds they couldn't allow for more options on brightness. I'd say it's a 6 or 7 out of 10. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  3. I skipped that add on... But curious to hear what others say as well Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  4. My neighbor has a new GMC Sierra with what I think is the same error message, he had it fixed with a simple software update from the dealership. Can't say it's the same issue for sure but possibly. I'd maybe try a different dealership also. Edit: Sounds like another member had similar issue. Check out the thread below. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/243096-2021-yukon-denali-service-safety-restraint-system/&share_tid=243096&share_fid=33003&share_type=t&link_source=app
  5. AT4 is 5.3 only... 6.2 won't be an option... Neither will the 3.0 L diesel... Disappointing I know. Supposedly the AT4 unique lower fascia doesn't allow for adequate cooling with the diesel. The lack of 6.2 is likely for exclusivity for the Denali line Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  6. Congrats on the purchase! Looking forward to pics Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  7. Yea so I'm pretty sure it's gonna be an android only thing so hopefully you don't have an iPhone. On my Note 20 it's called Smartview and the car screens pop up to connect to. Can also do it from within YouTube with the cast icon. If you are on iPhone there might be a workaround worth researching. Hope this helps! Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  8. I also own a tuned/slightly modified Challenger RT with a 5.7 Hemi pushing a little over 400 at the crank, I can attest that the butt meter between that one and my 2021 Denali are not as close as I would have thought. Apples and oranges I know... And again, can only really compare to the 5.3 in my old 2002 Tahoe, but based on my experience with that 15 yr old 5.3 Vortec, I really did not even want nor consider a real need for the 6.2 in the Yukon as I always thought that Tahoe had sufficient git up in city driving. Was driving both it and my Challenger interchangeably for some time and the butt meter felt much closer. Figured the 6.2 would be overkill but eventually fell in love with the perks/looks of the Denali and went with it, so glad that I did. Haven't driven a new 2021 with the 5.3 but in my opinion I bet there will be some folks complaining of it feeling underpowered since the 6.2 seems just about adequate for the size/weight of this new refresh. Maybe its a programming/transmission thing... I don't know. Test drove a 2020 Expedition with the 3.5 ecoboost before purchasing the Yukon and it felt a bit quicker than my 6.2.... and just think you get that in a 50k base model. Of course it's all anecdotal and we may end up being the minority once more folks get these in their driveways. But I can assure you all that Mike31 is not bs'ing or on a placebo high when he mentions some sluggishness with this new platform. I'm not drag racing this land yacht so at the end of the day it's not a huge deal, as long as the 6.2 does its job when I begin towing. Also not dogging the new 2021 platform nor do I regret my decision, it's the best full size suv out there right now imo... but it is an honest observation from someone who isn't just some paid car reviewer but someone who spent their hard earned money on this suv.
  9. Thanks brother, and if you are indeed a Vet then thank you for your service to this amazing country!
  10. Well truck was a week or so old at the time... plates have come in and decal removed already I guess I need to lead with the disclaimer that it is my "personal opinion" that plain jane silver painted wheels don't do much for me. My goal for this suv from the beginning was black wheels, black paint, black interior. Personal preference I guess. I would have gotten factory black wheels but an extra 3k on top of the 7k Premium package for factory 22's didn't make much sense when I could go aftermarket custom 24's and have a sea of options. Also my opinion that 24's would help fill the wheel wells a bit better while still allowing for enough rubber to maintain a cushioned ride on a vehicle with such a tall factory suspension height. However, by your own logic, why ever get a black vehicle?? Tons of colors are hitting dealer lots now, if no Yukons then you'd likely be able to find a new Tahoe in said colors in order to see in person. Pics do not do these colors justice. There was a Satin Steel Metallic on the lot when I purchased mine that made me question my choice for a minute or two it looked so good.
  11. You know I thought I was a bit crazy thinking my Denali was a bit sluggish as well. Seems slower than my old 2002 Tahoe with the 5.3 and also slower than a new model Grand Cherokee with the 3.6 v6. I know it's a lot of weight but expected a bit better out of the 6.2 with the 10 spd. It does move out its own way well at highway speeds thanks to momentum and torque but city driving below 60 mph I'm wanting a bit more. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Yea it's crazy to think plain ol' black is extra...? On an 80k suv?? And yea its the most expensive vehicle I've ever purchased... prior to this my vehicle was about half the cost... but that was also over a decade ago when vehicle prices were much more normal Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. I plan on hardwiring my radar detector as well. I've always hardwired in my previous vehicles since I absolutely hate the dangling/exposed wires. Let us know how the install goes and where you were able to tap into. I'm gonna look at tapping into the powered rearview mirror... if not then the center console and then run under the dash, along the driver A pillar, and then inside the edge of the headliner. Thanks
  14. Gorgeous combination there my friend! And amazing pics... I gotta step up my photography skills! I shoulda tried to get the dealer to deliver instead of drive 4 hrs from Dallas to Houston. Was worth it tho. Did your dealership budge any off msrp selling price? I know leases are written up differently and you have deal with residual value but curious on that aspect if your open to sharing. Understand if not. What was your previous vehicle and what's your initial thoughts so far on the new rig? Thanks for sharing! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Yea so regular Denali comes with 20's. Add the Denali Premium Package and you get these different 22's thrown on. They are a bit forgettable to me and I'm not super blown away by them... But I'll be selling them soon as take offs and upgrade to gloss black 24's to help fill in some of that wheel gap Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
