    Re: GMC Denali vs. Ford Epedition

    I have an '04 Expedition. I've never manually figured the mileage, but the trip computer consistently reads around 15-16. The truck definitely gets more around town use than highway.
    Compare that to my old V-10 Excursion, where I averaged around 10 with the same use, and I'm pretty happy.
    As for the comparison, I will never buy a GM vehicle again, so it was an easier choice for me. I'm not any kind of huge Ford fan's more like a lesser of two evils kind of thing.
    I really wanted to get a Toyota Sequoia to be perfectly honest, but price was way higher than the Ex. Plus, the Ex has some features I like that the Toyota doesn't. One in particular is the third row seats that fold flat into the floor.
    These days, I almost never tow anything, so that's not presently a concern. I have yet to tow a thing with this truck - can't tell you how it does.

    I see the GMC advertised at $8000 off sticker often. The 6.0L with 410 rear end has a tow rating of 9900 lbs. Nice ride.

    Denali rides and drives better than any 4x4 Expedition. The 4x2 Expedition rides better than the 4x4.

    Ford motor has a little more grunt right off the bottom. The Denali motor has lots more pull up in the revs. Neither is a dog.

    Mileage sucks on both of them.
    Older Expeditions required constant steering corrections on the interstate, new ones are much better in that regard.

    If you tow over 6000 pounds, wheelbase is king. I believe the Exped has a little longer wheelbase, but I'm not sure, as I instantly vote XL/Suburban when it comes to towing.

    Ford has better seats (IMO) and Denali has a better stereo (also IMO).

    that's my spill

    I think what you really need to do is drive both and decide for yourself. People that are loyal to fords are going to say ford, and people that like GM are going to say GM. I don't think you can go wrong either way. My .02

    Re: GMC Denali vs. Ford Epedition

    We have an 02 Denali and love it. We used to tow a 225br (~4500lbs) with an F150 then with the far the Denali is better. When we would tow long distances (300miles one way), we arrived and were not completely worn out. As stated above, we didn't even know the boat was back there most of the time. The Denali gets about 14-16 towing. I'd by another in a heart beat!

    Denali XL... wheelbase makes a HUGE difference.

    I guess all this high quality, comfort and reliability is the reason GM is now offering 0% for 60 months. Sounds like they are selling the value to me.

    I do not have an opinion on either. But make sure you understand the perspective of the person from whom you get the opinion. Bulletin boards rarely provide that detail.
