New Redesigned 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 500Miles
Took delivery of my 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali fully loaded with the ultimate package on 8/13/18. Post a couple quick videos earlier but here is a more indepth higher quality walk around video showing all the new features and options on this truck! It is very high tech but i still must say that My 2018 Ford Raptors interior i liked better, the seats were more comfortable, screen was a little bigger, and the gauge cluster looked way better but i get it this is a “Luxury” truck and the raptor was a “Off-Road Animal”. After a little over 500 miles i love the sound of the 6.2L V8 much better but overall it is very close to the 3.5L HO Ecoboost in the raptor. I have to say that GMC has stepped up on this truck and put a WHOLE BUNCH of new TECH in it and it shows! The multi function tailgate i feel is much better though out then the ford version, but i know im gonna catch a bunch of “internet hate” for this write up. They are 2 completely different trucks, and at the end of the day it really depends on what you will be using the truck for the most, i use my truck to tow a trailer and go look at, buy, and pick up a lot and soon to be most of our inventory so i needed a truck geared more for towing, although i towed a good bit with my 2018 Ford Raptor it isnt made for towing and really could tell that once you go anything heavier then a Classic C1/C2 Corvette on the Trailer! At the end of the day i wanted to try something NEW and was treated poorly by the past 2 ford dealerships; 1 of them w/ service regarding issues i was having with my truck they would never look at them and always wanted me to just drop my truck off and they would get to it when they could or make an appointment for 2 weeks away which at that point what do you do when it is letting you sit, thankfully the truck after sitting for 15 mins reset itself and worked fine, and the other when trying to order a new truck 2019 Raptor, told me everything they needed to jsut to get me in the dealership and sell me on a 2018 they had sitting there after i explained to them i just sold a 2018 raptor i drove for 24k miles…they wanted to write down on paper what i wanted and take a cash deposit and put my name on top the list to order as soon as they could, but on the phone i was told they FORSURE could put the order in with Ford and i would leave with a Confirmation that my order was accepted by ford. I made an appointment and show up, they sales manager then tells me they cant do it so i left and on my way home drove past a GMC dealer and seen this 2019 Denali 1500 and went and the salesmen couldn’t of been any nicer, didn’t know much about this truck yet, i knew more about it then him but he was as helpful as he could be! I would recommend anyone buy from the GM dealer i purchased this truck from!
