Greetings,
Yesterday, just picked up my new to me 2019 Denali in Dark Sky Metallic, with 28.8k on the clock. Still has 4 months of factory warranty left.

Traded my 2016 Sequoia Platinum with 85k on her. Got 15 mpg on the drive there, got 31.5 in the 2.8 on the way home.

now just gotta see how she’ll pull my 20’ Skeeter (3600 lbs) up to the old pond Cachuma. Hoping to get better than the 12 the sequoia gave.

pure stock as far as I can tell, but it seems to have a larger exhaust tip than I’ve seen in other pics of these trucks…

first things I’ll be looking for is mud flaps to keep dirt off the boat, and some form of a bed cover. Either a shell or a hard cover, to protect my golf clubs..

cheers

Congrats man. Gotta love that fuel economy! Especially now!! The stock "bazooka" tail pipe does look large for that size truck, but if you've got the air inlets where it mounts to the exhaust pipe safe to say it's stock. You'll have no problems towing your rig. I recently picked up a 19' camper trailer, 3700lbs dry, she pulled it through the northern Sierras like a champ. Averaged 16.9 MPG after a 400 mile round trip through the mountains, trailer attached the whole time. Have fun!!

Thanks mate, I am LOVING my truck. I’m averaging about 20 mpg overall, which includes one or two rows to the lake. It took a little while to get used to the hard seats and smaller space, but now I don’t even think about it any more. It tows my bass boat right up the mountains at 50 mph, and downhill with the tow switch engaged it dramatically reduces braking.
The Bose stereo is pretty good too. I got a had folding bed cover so my golf clubs are always locked in and ready to go. The weathertech mudflats are perfect, and we’re super easy to install. I got a nice little iPhone magnet holder, and a coffee cup enlarger from Amazon, so now all the creature comforts are in place, along with the little plastic cubby hole organizer too.
I’ve got a friend who owns a diesel performance shop, and he wants to do a delete/tune on it, but shine I’m only at 31k, nope !, I’m leaving it stock, as it’s actually not that slow- and I’m an old fuddy anyways-
Anyways- I always wave to my fellow twins- and I might have said this already but,
I love this little truck… let’s go Brandon! You senile old fool…smh

The more I drive this truck around the more I like it... The daily is a company ford and it's a POS. It just makes me appreciate the truck all the more after driving that ford during the week.
