The drivetrain on a Denali is exclusive ONLY to both the Yukon Denali and Escalade; it isn't available on the Tahoe or the regular Yukon along with a Vortec 6200 engine again standard on the Denali and Escalade. The Denali also comes STANDARD with a power liftgate, Bose sound system, remote start, leather seats, mesh grille, and 18 inch rims.

I drove both the Denali and the base Yukon and I can tell you that the Denali seems to have a smoother ride and more passing power. I also looked at the Escalade but it didn't seem to be worth $10,000 more than the Denali. The Denali is basically an Escalade without as much chrome or the Cadillac insignia.

And how do you "surely know" that the Corolla has a better ride or more quiet interior than the Yukon? I've been in small cars before and going over even a small bump shakes the heck out of you while as in my Yukon, I can glide over a bump with ease.

I'm not hating on the Corolla here, I think it's a great little car but I'll take my gas-guzzling Yukon Denali any day of the week.
I don't drive a Corolla but I don't drive a Denali either. Yes, I drive a luxury vehicle, but I am a responsible consumer, and would never drive a gas guzzling monster. Not because I can't afford the gas, but because none of us can afford to do that to the environment. Wake up! Stop being selfish with your enormous status symbol of a car while destroying the environment.

In a few years, these gas guzzling monsters will be obsolete. While my luxury vehicle that gets 28 to the gallon will still be cruising along...

Wow, first of all motoring is a highly popular form of entertainment all over the entire world. It is HUGELY popular. As a matter of fact I almost wonder if it is the single overall MOST popular type of sport entertainment in the world.

"life must be pretty boring..." Not to be too insulting, but I wouldn't imagine that a guy who spends all his behind the wheel time in a corolla or an accord to have even the foggiest idea of how much fun driving and/or motorsports can actually be.

I agree 100%. I hate the high gas prices, but to find the silver lining in a dark cloud is to think of all the people stuck with their gas-guzzling road hogging beasts, that one gas gets closer to 4 bucks a gallon, nobody will want. All of you people driving Yukons and Excursions and Expeditions won't be able to give away those behemoths that you paid an arm and a leg for. They'll be sure to have fun spending $100 on a single tank of gas.

Actually, soccer (or football in countries other than the US) is the most popular sport in the world.

My life boring? Hardly. This is my favorite ride. Not as dependable as a Corolla, but gets over 30 mpg, and believe me it is fun to drive. Restoring older cars is a hobby of mine. Working on them is fun too.

It would be a very close call between the two. But either way, the majority of the world hardly thinks of cars as boring

Other cars in the Corolla's class include the Civic, Nissan Sentra, Chevy Cobalt, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Saturn Ion, Mazda 3, Dodge Neon, etc. Besides the Civic, none of those comes close to the Corolla in quality.
Civic is considered to be Corolla's equal reliability-wise, and is also more fun to drive. I'm not a huge fan of the styling on either though.

Mazda 3 has long been considered the best performing and best looking car in that class, and has good, if not great, reliability.

Personally, I'd drive a Focus or a Cobalt before I'd drive a Corolla also, but that's just me. Corollas bore me to death.

I highly, highly doubt that.

People said that when gas went from $2 to $2.50 that NOBODY will want to buy an SUV. They also said it when gas went from $2.50 to $3 and will keep saying it. But guess what, there IS still a market for large SUV's especially since the quality is improving more and more each year.

The demand for large SUV's is slipping though. People are ditching the beasts and I now see more smaller SUV's on the road like the CR-V, Rav4, Forester, etc.
