Default Sold my 2015 HD 2500 Duramax LTZ

Sold the Duramax, got almost 80% of what I paid for it 5 years and 30k miles ago. Just got tired of the stiff ride. I only tow the boat 30 miles twice a year....

Bought a 12' Yukon XL Denali with 134k miles- very clean- What a LUXO ride..... LOL. Oh, and put a BUNCH of money in the bank.....

I also now have a 2 br condo in Naples, FL..... So priorities change. Michigan in the summer- Florida winter....SNOWBIRD....

Those gigantic family moving SUV's are great vehicles. They last forever, have tons of room and can tow a little also.

You only put 30k miles in 5 years? probably why it held value so well.

Agreed. I am getting readdy to sell my 2015 Ford F 350 4x4. 78 022 miles. I'm thinking 80,000 miles it's going to take another hit, so hopefully I'll sell it before that. The Diesels definitely hold their value and why I bought them since 1996

Just traded a 50month old, 60k miles 2015 Sierra Crew (6.2 w max tow), paid about 48k OTD, got 30K in trade. It's stupid to me how much old trucks hold their value...

I have a '15 Yukon XL Denali with the 6.2 engine. Pulls anything I want to any very comfortable. Not towing I'm getting 22-23mpg average with cruise set at 75. I also have a Range AFM disabler that keeps the engine in full time V8 mode.

I think we're talkin diesels here? You can't give away a super duty in Florida with a gas unless it's a work truck XL

I agree, but on our wonderful potholed roads here in Mich. I had to strap in tight to keep from bouncing off the ceiling in it.

As for as THT goes, the 2500HD is the perfect daily driver. Rides like it's on clouds. And your new Yukon cannot pull over a 13 ft skiff or your I'll end up in a ditch when a semi passes you. Lol.....

But as for as my thoughts, here in MI that Yukon will ride a million times better and since you are a smart driver, towning your boat will not be an issue.

Subjective "facts" at best. You persistently use hyperbole to make your point, which is annoying.

You're absolutely right; but you use the same hyperbolic opinion in every thread. When you use drastic hyperbole like you do you aren't stating "facts" and barely even an opinion. It's just noise.
