Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

Both the Hemi and the Pentastar are really fine engine choices....I did extensive test driving with the Pentastar and thought it was very refined and had more than enough power, so I completely...

Re: Happy with my HEMI choice!

I have the Hemi as well and I do not regret it for a second. It is a very strong and proven engine. Has a great rumble at idle. Not sure why there is so much hating on the Hemi on these threads

Re: If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

That's ugly. I like the Bronco concept better. I just cannot believe that we have no other options. Nothing in the market compares to the GC other than the LR4, I guess.

Re: Changes for 2015?

They had quite a few SLT's on the lot in various colors. Champagne Silver Metallic was my favorite. The Denali was black. It was OK, but too hearse-like IMO.

There's a lot more to that truck than just insulation. I am no fan of GMC, in fact I've never even considered one of their products before. But the new Denali is really a nice truck.

Re: Drove a 2014 Toyota Highlander today, my thoughts vs the WK2

I don't see the Highlander as being a better ride in either scenario. But we can all agree to disagree. But geez, the GC on smooth pavement (esp at highway speeds) is almost too smooth LOL
