    More so the doctor/lawyer type.

    Side note:
    Where is that picture taken?
    Looks burned out and abandoned, in detroit?
    Picture is taken in Sandy Hook at an old Navy base. What you see there is a bunker where they used to have these massive hide-away guns to knock out ships if they came too close to the coast. They would pop up from behind the bunker, fire, and the momentum would push them back down where they could be reloaded without disclosing their location. Pretty cool stuff.

    GMC should take up everything from Jeep to Land Rover. The fabled Hummer H-4 Wrangler type truck should have survived in GMC.

    We looked at the Acadia Denali and could not get over the top of the center stack (triple vents) and the lack of the whole dash from door to door not being broken up with different colors. This is why we went with a Traverse. LTZ. I like the exterior of the GMC, but the interior of the Traverse. You be the judge.

    Traverse has a much better interior, really does.

    I prefer the instrument cluster of the GMC but the overall design of the Chevy.

    It's too bad, the wife really wanted the Denali, But we had one as a rental for a month, we both liked it at first, but could not get over the all black interior, it just was sore on the eyes over time.

    Plus all the dealers we went to go look at them (3) had $3-6 mark-ups on them. One topped out at over $59k That also pushed us off the fence into a Traverse. Yeah it lack a few options (folding mirrors and projector lamps) but for the extra $$$ we could not justify it, it would have been worth $15k less the second we drove off the lot.

    If the car was totaled in an accident we would have received $52k and not $59.

    Liberty Mutual does not pay what you paid, they pay what it would cost to get you into the same vehicle at MSRP.

    It looks great-

    It sells great-

    Why can't we get the 5.3 in the Acadia Denali like we could in the Envoy Denali?? The Traverse was designed for the 5.3 (even though it never came to be) so we know it fits!!
    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you.

    Okay- Now put up the comparison shots with a Traverse interior in Ebony, and an Acadia Denali interior in Cashmere. Or you can opt for the Lt Titanium interior in the Denali as well.

    For over a decade, Denali has always catered to and has been purchased by individuals with higher-incomes...forget what the average transaction price or income level for them are, but they're usually pretty high.

    Not one of the 6 GMCs we looked at had anything but black, and I have never seen anything but all black in showroom floors. So I had nothing to compare. These are all I could find from GM and which to me are all to plain for a flag ship GMC.
