    I like it very much. would buy right away as soon as it would come out. I am a fan of pickups

  • walter hussong III Posted: 2/18/2010 8:22pm PST

    yes build it w/out any question. If you don't build it how can I buy the consept. It's the best looking truck. How about a 572 engine in one.

  • walter hussong III Posted: 2/18/2010 8:38pm PST

    build it, build it I want one. I know gmc has built some proto-types please call me (619)571-6551 or e-mail me at wknco@cox.com I'm intrested in buying one.I will sign a waiver of any liability to your Co. It needs a gmc 572 crate engine at my expense.

  • Abdalla Posted: 10/16/2010 7:50pm PDT

    any 1 know when it will be for sale ?

  • Turboooz avatar Turboooz Posted: 10/17/2010 6:41am PDT

    when the GMC denali XT will be for sale any 1 know ?

  • Craig Dong Posted: 2/12/2008 4:41pm PST

    Why not? The american consumer is moving towards more fuel efficient vehicles due to financial or environmental concerns. Plus, it's not always easy trying to find a parking space for a big crewcab in a "compact" parking space world.

  • ksmith Posted: 2/12/2008 4:51pm PST

    I say build it, but does it have to have such a truckish exterior? A G8-themed ute from down under would look a lot better IMHO.

  • Mark Posted: 2/12/2008 4:59pm PST

    I would not buy it. Why? I do not need a truck. If I need to move something heavy, I go to Home Depot and rent a truck for $19.99. And in all other cases a Saab 9-3 SportWagon is sufficient - a complete Ikea Bedroom + 3 people fit into it. And I do not undrestand people who buy trucks and then use their bed or towing capacity twice a year. Just get a regular car and rent a truck when you need it - you will save a fortune on fuel...

  • Anthony Posted: 2/12/2008 5:16pm PST

    I say gimme a G8-style Maloo. This comes from a former '05 GTO owner, a 3 time El Camino owner ('78, '79 & '84) and a current Envoy Denali owner. I love the idea of a car-based vehicle with truck bed - but I think it only needs 2 doors and/or maybe an extended cab. The 4-door design with the huge front grill just looks silly - and I love huge grills.

  • Terry Patterson Posted: 2/12/2008 5:24pm PST

    Build it just as it is soon. Vehicles of this caliber would help GM to better compete with the opposition-especially if the cost is under $40,000.

  • Csedke Posted: 2/12/2008 5:30pm PST

    I loved my El Caminos. Only reason I quite buying them was they started to build them in Mexico. If you don't build them in the USA I don't want one at any cost.

  • Verne Posted: 2/12/2008 5:31pm PST

    Will Denali XT a serious and desireable endeavor?
    Have sold my F-150 and now happily using my
    Subaru Baja...........The A-Bat would also be fine.

  • tom kuchnicki Posted: 2/12/2008 5:43pm PST

    Looks like my Pontiac Vibe on steroid wheels and tires.
    Lets talk milage, like 35 city 44 hwy.
    Now you have something that appeals to a whole lot of people.

  • Seb Posted: 2/12/2008 5:48pm PST

    Build it under the Chevy brand and make it look like a truck (as the Denali XT). If it picks up, then, market it under GMC also. Also, make it look like a car and badge it under Pontiac. Then, you cover both worlds of Truck and Car lovers. GM needs special design products with limited competition and this is basically a rebaded car from the land down under. So, limited cost, move volume, and addressing a new market! What else can you ask for...

  • Chuck Hudson Posted: 2/12/2008 6:09pm PST

    Chrylser had huge success with the Magnum, why not GMC Danali, I think it is sleek looking car.

  • John Starnes Tampa Florida Posted: 2/12/2008 6:26pm PST

    They would be fools to NOT build it!

  • Tote Posted: 2/12/2008 6:45pm PST

    GM keeps on showing blue sky proposals that have never turned a wheel under their own power I.E. the Volt.

    Yes, they are concepts; but GM even advertises them during the Super Bowl. They also quote MPG and performance figures even though they don't have a running vehicle.

    The Denali XT fits in that mold perfectly. They quote Horsepower figures for a direct injection 4.9 litre V8 engine/hybrid power train even though such an engine doesn't actually exist. Hmm, sounds like how far the volt can go on its Lithium Ion battery pack even though they don't actually have the batteries.

    In the computer business, we used to refer to this silliness as VAPORWARE. I for one am quite tired of GM trumpeting things that don't really exist.

    I noticed that Toyota avoided that with their A-Bat completely. It is a concept car. It is not a production car. They never intimated otherwise. They don't throw out Pie-in-the-sky horsepower figures or MPG readings, they simply show the car as an example of what could be.

    How about a little truth in advertising, GM?

  • Tote Posted: 2/12/2008 6:50pm PST

    By the way, I also wonder where are all those people that made remarks saying the A-Bat was uggggly?

    The Denali XT looks like someone took an existing truck, combined it with some A-bat styling and then sat on it until it was squashed almost flat.

    Maybe they should have called it the A-butt.

  • Seano Posted: 2/12/2008 7:20pm PST

    Yep the Denali IS ugly.........as an Aussie, I'm a bit embarrased for the two talented Oz designers responsible for the Denali........all they needed to do was freshen up the Holden Crewman and what happened? They ended up killing the Crewman and pulling out this whopping great turkey.

    ......of great relief is that likelihood that this turkey will never fly Down Under.

    Nor will the totally daft idea of a 4.9L V8 petrol hybrid.....so so so so stupid. So so so unnecessary in every way except marketing. Better would be a 2.5 to 3.0L turbo diesel V6 that'd nail 25mpg with just the engine......add the hybrid option and you'll see 35mpg no worries....

    ....but it is still a fugly thing.

  • Dave_in_Rio_Rancho Posted: 2/12/2008 7:23pm PST

    I say build it. The really butt ugly Honda Ridgeline gets 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

    You are thinking truck, I am thinking Crossover with a bed.

    By the way, Toyota says the A-Bat may be a go for production.

  • Matt Posted: 2/12/2008 7:51pm PST

    I say build it, and as a GM model, not a Pontiac. First, when I saw this 'truck' I didn't think of the old El Camino's, I thought it was GM's newest truck concept. Although the proportions may be similar to the Camino's overall, this is definitely styled as a truck. If GM keeps the styling 'truck-like' instead of making it like those ugly car-with-a-bed things, then this should be able to attract those wanting trucks, but not needing 100% full-fledged truck capability. This should also offer a great way to increase truck fuel economy, there are a lot of those consumers that need (and want) a truck but don't actually need it for the most rigorous applications, that a full-size would be required for.

  • Mike Faone Posted: 2/12/2008 10:20pm PST

    Build it and they will come...I know I would buy it...back to the 60's YES!

  • M. Martinez Posted: 2/12/2008 11:03pm PST

    I believe that this would be good selling vehicle given its utility and smaller size. The only thing that concerns me is the pre-disposition that the American public has demonstrated when it comes to buying foreing made cars based on a "better quality" perception.
    Where I live I hear the constant battle cry of "buy made in the USA" but when it comes to our individual commitment, we always defer to the other people.
    What a shame!!!!!!!

  • Tom Posted: 2/13/2008 1:10am PST

    The old El Caminos were NOT 'dissed' by the car mags at all, ever! Even 'holy' Car and Driver liked them. Do some real research before saying such inane things.

  • Charlie Posted: 2/13/2008 1:22am PST

    IT LOOKS GREAT!! As an ex Subaru dealer we sold qite a few Bajas and people love it.
    This has beatiful styling and cosumes little gas. AWD would be wonderful up here in the North EAST. BUILD IT, PLEASE!!!!!

  • Cindy Posted: 2/13/2008 1:56am PST

    I would be very interested to purchase a small hybrid truck. The better fuel mileage is enticing as well as using the 85 ethanol fuel. I think that the new styling is appealing and sleek. Hopefully the price will be attainable.

  • DANNY LEE Posted: 2/13/2008 2:30am PST

    HELL YA! BUILD IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. JUST KEEP THE PRICE UNDER $40,000 AND I WILL BUY ONE TOMORROW.

  • Wayne K Posted: 2/13/2008 10:03am PST

    As someone who works at a GMC dealership, I think this is a great idea for production. I'm not a big fan of the whole G8 "trucklet" idea that GM is doing, but it does keep down costs . I happen to like the looks of the Denali XT concept, and think that it could translate into production easily. Come on GM, you've been doing a whole lot better with your vehicles over the past few years, build this!

    But as far as the poster Chuck Hudson states: "Chrysler has had huge success with the Magnum....." Ummm check again, that car was a BOMB. It was/is a great idea, and I love a big wagon, I really like it with a HEMI, but it didn't sell, hence the reason Chrysler has decided to drop that car all together.

  • Ken Reid Posted: 2/13/2008 10:11am PST

    I let my wife talk me into purchasing our first minivan. I call it a crossover because it sounds more "manly" I guess! It is a Chevy Uplander, We both LOVE IT! Awesome ride, not bad on fuel, and very peppy! She wanted this van for the space, I pushed for this one because of the looks of the front clip. (Aggressive looking grill) I would have to say that if GM built the Denali, we would once again be rid of the mid-life, family minivan, and surely buy this thing up!

    ps. Gm needs to sh*t or get off the pot! They advertise the hell out of a new prototype and if they don't get RAVING reviews, they can it and start from scratch! No wonder they can't make money, they are wasting it daily paying Engineers to build "one of's".

  • Mark A. Posted: 2/13/2008 6:48pm PST

    The Baja is dead from low sales. The Magnum is dead from low sales. The only way they might get enough sales of this vehicle is pricing it in the 20's, and I don't think that is going to happen. I remember when the Aztec was a show car and everyone said "Build It..Build it". Where are they now?

  • Chris Posted: 2/13/2008 11:23pm PST

    I think this is a done deal! As long as it is as wide and spacious interior as the current Denali truck it will do great. Do nobody buys a Denali to really use anyway. I would not be shocked if the next generation Avalanche looks very similiar.

  • Wildgoosechase Posted: 2/14/2008 2:29am PST

    It will be produced, it will replace the traditional 1/2 ton truck. If you want a real truck you will need to pony up for a 3/4 ton truck which weighs enough that it is not counted towards CAFE.

  • John Greenhalgh Posted: 2/15/2008 5:05pm PST

    Go for it and send to the UK as something different to the run of the mill pickup.

  • Sliver Posted: 2/16/2008 5:29am PST

    What's with all these ugly cars. Why do cars need to look like pit bulls. Fortunately, GM will be bankrupt before this goes into production.

  • wyatt Posted: 2/18/2008 2:49pm PST

    yes i think it should be built but if they are as slow as the camaro has been in coming then toyota will have a 3 year lead with the abat truck which i wouldnt buy anyway because its not american !

  • Alan Posted: 2/18/2008 4:02pm PST

    I LOVE IT. LOOKS SO COOL. BUILD IT WITH HYBRID MOTOR AND YOU WILL HAVE WINNER> SO COOL. Would like to see a bed cover like the Avalanche. Please.
    Good Luck.

  • Bilt Posted: 2/18/2008 10:22pm PST

    I like it a lot. I had a new 64 and a new 70 Camino. I have a 2000 sierra now. I would buy an XT if a 2 door was offered. Hybrid also would be nice.

  • Robert Leitra Posted: 2/21/2008 6:39pm PST

    please build it, because I will purchase one now.

  • Venus Posted: 2/23/2008 8:11pm PST

    not wanting only a truck, I think a car concept stationwagon type would be great for the family car, but either way GET Started! We need a REAL environmental change! Our planet needs it people. it's TIME! I would buy!

  • cm Posted: 7/4/2008 12:08pm PDT

    I think GMC should build it, but with a few changes. I'd love to see all-wheel drive. Some of us need to deal with snow for part of the year, plus it would reinforce the more truck-like image of GMC. I'm not looking for off-road mudpit 4WD, just a car-like AWD setup for the winter. Most people, even those with SUVs or pickups don't really need true offroad capability, just to be able to deal with winter weather and the occasional gravel driveway.
    I drive a Chevy Avalanche now and the utility is fantastic. Yes, I really do use it as a truck pretty often and the midgte flexibility really sold me (this is my second Avalanche). But I really don't need a truck this big most of the time. Something like the Denali XT combines most of the best features of the Avalanche in a more realistic platform. I think GMC should build it, or let Chevy take it as a realistic and practical replacement for the Avalanche.

  • David Posted: 7/16/2008 8:09am PDT

    I love this concept vehicle, I wish GM it would put it in production this year so that I could purchase it next year are as soon as possible. This is the type truck I have been waiting for since the 1970's El Camino.

  • john t kostick Posted: 7/26/2008 2:48pm PDT

    i like the style and everything about it, id buy it in a minute

  • pete Posted: 8/27/2008 1:50am PDT

    I was just searching on when it was going to be produced and how soon I can purchase it. I have a 2005 Denali XL now, and it is completely killing me on gas. And not for nothing, I love the thing, its a great truck; but the style and functionality of this vehicle would encourage me to make the just from a full size truck this beauty. I say produce the thing and throw me a set of keys...GMC till death do us part

  • debbie bishop Posted: 9/13/2008 11:44pm PDT

    I love the looks of the xl denalli...and if it is good on gas then......I will be purchasing one.......LOOKS GREAT!!! The sooner the better......!!!

  • Jazz67 avatar Jazz67 Posted: 10/15/2013 3:18am PDT

    I would love to have this truck. The style alone sells me not to mention the rest.LOL Where can I buy one???
