Update: So I picked up the Denali Tuesday evening. Everything looks good. The small scratch in the front door is gone after they buffed it and there are 2 or 3 very tiny spots in the rear bumper where they used touch up paint, maybe 1/16" in diameter at most. You could never seem them unless you were looking for them. I'm so glad I didn't have them paint over the factory paint.
Some random interesting thoughts I thought I would share:
1) Some of you may remember I also was looking at ordering a Suburban RST (diesel). I sent the dealer an email in early December telling them that I no longer needed it but because of an email snafu, they submitted the order for production anyway. So I got a phone call yesterday saying that my Suburban was here. I guess I should change the title of this thread to "Three diesel orders are on their way to me"
If anyone is close to the AZ area there are now two diesels (SLT with luxury/max tow and Suburban RST with luxury/max tow) that should be available.
2) Before I traded in my Subaru for the Yukon, I thought I would get it appraised at a Subaru dealership hoping I might be able to get a little more for it. As the guy was test driving my car he was asking what vehicle I am buying and I told him the Yukon XL. He said it's a good thing I'm not getting one of those Wagoneers (They are also a Jeep dealer). I said I actually considered the new Wagoneer "L" and he said the few they've sold have spent most of the time in the shop and a couple have even been lemon-lawed.
3) The salesman that delivered my Yukon personally owned a Sierra truck with the LM2 diesel. He owned it about a year and a half but recently bought a new 2023 with the LZ0 diesel. He said he actually liked the LM2 more. I said "Oh you are just saying that because I got the LM2". He said no, the LM2 seems quieter and he doesn't really notice any difference in power, although maybe slightly more between 50 - 70 MPH. Of course it is just one person's opinion, but an interesting data point regardless.
Here is a quick pic. Definitely is going to take some getting used to:
