Default GMC Denali vs. Ford Epedition

Does anyone have a opinion between these two trucks? They both will pull my 288 sunsation but I am worried about gas milage (I know, both are terrible) in the denali because it is a 6 litre with all wheel drive. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks

They'll be close on milage espicially when towing but you will certainly have extra money left over if you buy the Ford.

IMO, the Denali would be worth the extra money. I don't think mileage should be a determining factor on which one to get, since you won't be towing all the time. Go with GMC, you won't be disappointed...

My wife has an 01 Denali and gets 15 to 16 mpg all day long. I have the same motor in my 2500 HD and get 10 to 11. The AWD is great and the level ride is good for towing. The two don't compare, I have to drive my brother-in-laws Expedition some time and can't wait to get back into the Denali.

I have had both and would go with the Denali, hands down. I just pullled my boat 120 miles with an Expedition and it did the job but I think the Denali did it much better. I could go 80 with the Denali and not think anything of it but I didnt feel comfortable going over 75 in the Expedition.

Thanks to everyone who has responded. The GMC dealer by my house has a leftover 04 that lists for 52,000 but is selling for 42,900. The salesman told me there was some room to go down. I know the manager at the Ford dealer who said he can give me great prices on the leftover 04 expeditons. Until I decide which one to buy, I really dont know what the actual price will be.

Thanks again

Think it was the poker run magazine that just came a few days ago that just put the Ford, GMC and H2 head to head. Might want to check out their findings......

Go with the Denali or the 2 wheel drive Yukon XL, I pull a 29 SCARAB with my Yukon XL 5.3 no problem.
The Denali and the Yukon XL are a much nicer truck in my opinion, the interior is nicer and the truck is longer than the Expedition, the Expedition has shorter rear doors, where the XL has full size doors.

Just my 02

Not really. According to some surveys that were done on both there was a higher percentage rate of mechanical problems within the first 90 days of owning a Ford. It may be covered under warranty but the rental car isn't. The GMC is a much more relaiable car. It's more ergonomic and far more comfortable. If you do some research on the net you find that the GMC is better.
