MPG was not much of a factor in my decision. I figure the best a 5.3 would get me is maybe 2 more MPG. In 50K miles of driving @$3.50 a gallon your talking $1800 difference in fuel cost. I was willing to pay that for the power/looks of the Denali (although a Z71 looks good too). The only other consideration would be if you required a transfer case with a LOW range. I was also able to use the Denali's poor MPG against it during the haggling phase. I actually paid the same for the Denali as lesser-equipped Subs were getting cause he wanted it off his lot. Drive them both before you finally might get seduced by the 6.0 roar!
