Traded my Sierra Denali for a Suburban Z71

Recommended Posts



Hi all,

I just traded my Sierra Denali. It was a 5.3, with the technology package.

Great vehicle but needed more cab room.


Anyways, I got 60k for my trade, paid 64k over a year ago with 18k miles on it now.

i was happy in only losing 4K.

Got a well equipped 2021 Suburban Z71.

I love the look of it, even fits in my garage better since 6 inches shorter.


I do miss HUD, Front camera and HD rear view mirror.

Absolutely love the front end and it feels lifted. Kind of reminds me of the Trail Boss.

I would not compare it to my Rubicon in off-roading, but I bet the Z71 would be great at over-landing.


just sold on the looks of it. Not missing the Sierra. I wish that I could add the HD rear view mirror of HUD to my new Z71.

Nice.   I'm going to buy a Suburban Z71 as soon as I find the right truck and the right price.   


You've got the same color I want.  Did you get the sunroof or the digital gauges?  I won't buy one with a roof, but I prefer the digital gauges.  


The Z71 is the sweet spot in the Suburban lineup.

Thanks, I went with the panoramic moon roof and the 2nd row bucket seats. Other than that no other extras. MSRP was 66k.

Mine came with the analog gauges. Had the digital in my Sierra but not missing it too much.


The Z71 Suburban looks the best to me out of the Suburbans and Tahoe’s. Most of my past cars were Wranglers and 4Runners.

Do you guys know if those middle captain chairs can be swapped out for a bench seat? Thanks!

The 2nd row captains chairs are an upgrade. The RST package seemed to include the 2nd row bench.

I am not 100% sure if you can swap out for a bench, since the captains chair move forward and appear to be bolted down.

Are you happy with the trade? Have you done any upgrade on your Suburban? 

Very happy with the trade. Like the look of the Z71 so much more.

I miss some of the tech features of the Denali, but not enough to want to trade back.


I put in the same GM floor liners that I had in the GMC. Kept the carpet looking perfect. I may go for the lighted front Chevy logo, or the rear cargo net for storage.

I may go for a utility trailer for the Suburban or the Jeep.

Nice, OP! I was very close to pulling the trigger in trading my Silverado RST Z71 for an AT4 Yukon (I wanted the better interior tech and the eLSD rear). I just couldn't do it because the discounts were non-existent, and the residual on the big SUVs are way worse than the full size trucks. 


Also, I just couldn't envision my life without a truck bed.
