I am excited that you are excited, but you are giving up a lot with he Denali. I miss the vented seats and heated steering badly that I had in both of my '15 2500 Denalis. I have a '16 Z71 and am planning to get a ZR2. I wish they offered those 2 features on the ZR2 though. I keep going back and forth thinking about ordering the Denali and just putting a little lift on it.
Yeah, I hear you. I somewhat agree. I have the heated steering wheel on one of my vehicles now. It's one of those options that is nice to have, but I'm not so sure I'd miss it. As I only use it about 10 times a year.
I've weighed all that out before I decided to go with the Colorado LT. It comes down to personal preference along with likes and dislikes. And I had each with both the Denali and Colorado.
I liked more, the ability to select the options on the Colorado more a la carte. And create a Colorado LT not so much like every other one on the road.
I really, really love the front grille on the Denali, and the interior is second to no other truck in its category. But, I'm not a big fan of the 20" wheels or the rear tail lights.
On the Colorado, I really, really love the 18" polished aluminum wheels I selected and prefer the tail lights over the Canyon.
I'm sure, once I get the Colorado delivered, I won't be regretting the decision. And quite sure I'd be driving it with great pride!
