    I'm not a big fan of grey or silver, but between ebony and tan I'd definitely go with tan. Ebony interiors are a heartache. Having just traded a black interior Ford for a tan interior Honda Pilot, I would know. The black interior's lower part of the doors was always dirty-looking and the kids were hell on the mats. The tan color gives a more luxurious (albeit less sporty) look to the car's interior and keeps it looking much cleaner.

    Congrats on your new Yukon, what a beaut of a car!

    However demand is fairly high. 15,431 sold in February and 10,481 in January. Almost 10,000 more than the same period last year. #2 selling SUV so far this year. I doubt rebates will be needed for a while.

    2,500 Nisan Armadas were sold in February.
    7,292 Ford Expeditions
    2,868 Toyota Sequoias
    7,924 Durangos

    Only one to out sell it for the year is the Explorer(29,559). For February the Explorer(17,559) and Escape(15,583) out sold the Tahoe(28,524) but only by a few units.

    I am not following your numbers here......can you clarify?

    If your looking at the dark grey or the silver check out the titanium interior. Looks good with those two colors.

    My wife and I attended an invitation only preview of the 2007 Tahoe last night. There were six stations set up, each with a different theme. As you went from one to another you listened to the canned spiel. This was NOT a sales event, it was sponsored by Chevy and Each person who listened to the spiel got a nice gift at each of the six stations. When you went to the last station you could drive the Tahoe and got a nice waterproof blanket for your effort. Most of the dozens of Tahoes there were LZT models, fully loaded. We came away wanting to know why anyone would spend all that money for such a large vehicle with so little interior room. The middle seats cannot be removed from those we saw and that really limits cargo hauling. The rear seat is cramped for all but children and weighs a ton to remove. Why not buy a top of the line minivan and save about $15,000 to $20,000, have more passenger space and flexibility not to mention gas mileage?

    Plan and simple. Some people do not want to drive a minivan.

    Not sure what you mean by "so little interior room"? If you are coming out of a different type vehicle, maybe then.

    I drove a new 4wd Yukon today and really thought it was nice. Interior was great and roomy to me, but I am used to our 99 Yukon. The brakes were a big improvement over our 99 and the 06 I drove a couple of months ago. Didn't play around with the stereo, power mirrors etc., just took it for a quick spin down the freeway. Feels powerful, excellent ride and did not notice the DOD. I did figure out that there are 2, 5.3 liter engines available on the 2WDs though. The one that will burn ethanol is rated one mile per gallon less on the highway.

    Question...Could someone explain to me the pros and cons of 4WD vs all wheel drive (Denali). All opinions appreciated.

    Funny, I am thinking of getting rid of my 2005 Honda Ody for the 07 Tahoe. I enjoyed the test drive and found the interior not only updated and improved on the new Tahoe, but the brakes and overall feel was impressive. Side curtain (available) for all 3 rows is a bonus over what I was going to consider (Toyota), which only offers curtain airbags for the first 2 rows only.
    For years we have bought HOndas and have been used to the MSRP or higher pricing. What kind of discount on MSRP is reasonable to expect on a Tahoe?

    The driving position was very comfortable. The ride was very quiet and handling good for such a ponderous vehicle. There was very little head room in the second row captain's seats for me. I am 6'2" tall and found my head was very close to the top of the door frame. There was no leg room in the third row for me. It would be next to impossible for an older person to have to navigate into that last row.

    For such a large vehicle there is not proportionate passenger space.

    Does anyone know when the expected release date of the Denali is? I've heard the end of April to the end of September.

    Also, what kind of deals are people getting on the SLT's? Anyone paying invoice or closer to MSRP? Any input would be great. Thanks.

    I know the body width of the 2007 is 79", but does any know how much the mirrors add to the width. I'm concerned my garage doors aren't wide enough

    Gee, the tide is turning. People are considering updated GM products over the Honda/Toyota stuff. The '07 Tahoe/Yukon is a big improvement with decent mileage, the Buick Lucerne is getting rave reviews, etc. Clearly the Japanese product advantage is no longer there. Additonally, the buying experience at most urban Toyota stores is now no better than the CSI at a Chevy store (says Barons Magazine). Think about it: why would you pay list or list plus and get the same CSI as where they discount heavily?

    With these quality products now out there why would anyone w/o grammar school age kids want to drive a minivan?
  • sdronsdron Posts: 29
    I am 5'11" and there was plenty of head room for me. :)
    I actually did check out the 3rd row seats even though they won't be on my order form. There just isn't sufficient cargo space behind them, which is more important to me than 3rd row seats.

    Still hoping somebody can help with a logical explanation of the pros and cons of 4WD on an 07 Yukon vs AWD on an 07 Denali? :confuse:
  • 06lly06lly Posts: 21
    Not sure how detailed of a description you were looking for but here is the basics. AWD refers to a full time 4 wheel drive system that usually does not have a 2-speed transfer case. You do not turn the system on or off. It is permanently in 4 wheel drive.

    The 4WD system with the t-case typically has three settings. 2-HI for highway, 4-HI for highway with poor road conditions and 4-Lo for off road deep mud, steep grade type use.

    The beauty of AWD is that you don't have to mess with turning it on or changing modes. It is always there but there is a small sacrifice of fuel economy, probably less than 1MPG at highway speeds.

    If you dont go off road but drive on slippery roads during winter, AWD is the way to go.

    If you want to go off road, 4WD is best.

    Watch out for towing capacities with AWD, they may not be as high as the 4WD models.

    Thanks 06lly.

    We just drive in the snow occasionaly, and every once in a while get in some sand/loose dirt but never any serious offroading (anymore). We have had four, 4WD trucks or SUVs in a row and will have another by summer.

    The loaded SLT Yukon that we looked at stickered at $50k so will wait to see what the Denalis are before deciding.

    Sorry. The 28,524 is for the year on the Tahoes.

    For February 15,431 Tahoes were sold, making it third behind the Explorer and Escape.

    Good luck on getting any discount on the new 07 Tahoe. This vehicle is still new and demand is a lot higher than the supply. May be in 6 months or a year may be? I read some article that mentioned GM is getting 40K for each on the average.

    I heard end of March. I am in So Cal.
  • sdronsdron Posts: 29
    A Dealer in San Diego is discounting $3,000 off MSRP on the 07 Tahoes.

    I ordered my 2007 Tahoe, paid invoice.
