My choice...Denali.

I'm really anti Hummer anything. Too much of a damn fad these days.

16 views and only 2 opinions? ok - more info...

This will be our only cage, we've had 2 cages for over 10 years and I can count on one hand how often they're both in use at the same time. Living in Florida I can ride the bike year round so it'll be my primary daily transportation. We might keep a beater vehicle for those rare instances we need 2 cages.

Occasionally I'll have to pull a 3500lbs trailer loaded with another (at least) 1000lbs of bikes & gear to the track about 220 freeway miles away. Sometimes even further, depends on the track. The most people it'll carry on a regular basis would be 4 people and that's just to saturday breakfast. A couple of times a year might need to carry 6 people. I don't like being cramped, I want wide open spaces, comfortable. I like gadgets, bluetooth, GPS, dvd players. Looking badass is absolutely essential but it cannot be blingy or childish. Chrome on a Hummer is something I cannot understand. It will live on a rural farm style plot and travel down dirt roads that will become muddy during the rainy season. It will not be modified from stock.

That help any?

Denali is the only way to go IMO. I love driving them, they have great power and sound (with help from flowmaster), and are probably one of the best looking SUVs on the road now. Stay away from the H2, and the Excursion is to big. Not real familiar with the Jeep, but I hear they are a little pricey for what you get. Good luck with your decision.

Talking

the hummer has enough space to be a post-party bedroom when you fold down the rear seats.

Nope, niether. Just flip on the discovery channel and watch any show where they are in the out back. What are they driving, Toyota. Toyota builds some of the most reliable efficient trucks on the market.

Denali. Hummers are for soccer moms and guys will little wankers. Fords suck. The Jeep Commander is first year, and it's never a good idea to buy a first year car, especially from Chrysler. (Hondas are OK). The Denali is so clean looking. Not all funked up like the chevrolets and the caddies.

I rear ended a car a few days ago.......

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He was pissed!

He looked up at me and said "I am NOT happy!"

I said, "Then which one are you?"

from edmunds.com

What Edmunds.com Says:The Yukon will appear with a ground-up redesign in the spring of 2006

What We Know: As part of its major truck and SUV offensive, General Motors will be launching a ground-up redesign of the GMC Yukon. The vehicle will be built on the brand-new GMT 900 platform, which it will share with the full range of GM's large trucks and SUVs. The 5.3-liter V8 is now rated at 320 hp while the larger 6.0-liter V8 is up to 350 hp. Both engines feature Displacement on Demand technology, which deactivates some of the cylinders at low loads for increased fuel economy. The cabin will be considerably more sophisticated and elegant than past versions of the Yukon, matching the sleekly refined exterior, with its new front-end sheet metal, headlights, and fascia. The 2007 Yukon's chassis will be refined for much more durable performance as well as greater noise-canceling abilities. Both passenger and cargo space are up as well. Standard safety features on all versions of the 2007 GMC Yukon will include roof-mounted head curtain side airbags for all three rows, new four-wheel disc brakes with improved ABS, Generation 6 OnStar, and standard StabiliTrak. Other new features include rear camera systems, power-assisted rear liftgates, power fold-and-tumble second-row seats, DVD systems with larger, 8-inch screens, and navigation systems. The 2007 Yukon and 2007 Yukon Denali will go on sale in the spring of 2006 with the Yukon XL and XL Denali due out in the second quarter.


Right about the time I'll be visiting dealerships and taking test drives.

wow jet, the new denali sounds like a winner.. i really wonder how this displacement on demand stuff works and how reliable they are.. they're pretty new so i havent heard much failure.. its kind of weird how it just "activates" and "deactivates" cylinders..lol imagine having an exhaust system on there.. at low revs it sounds like a ricey 4 cylinder civic, then it open up all 8 cylinders and we got ourselves a mustang.
