Denali question

I'm thinking of upgrading my 01 suburban to a newer Denali (2 or 3 years old) and have a question for you regarding trailering equipment on these trucks. A friend of mine has told me that they all come equipped for towing. I've currently looking at two vehicles. The build sheet on one of them specifically lists transmission and engine coolers. The window sticker (found it in the glove box) on the 2nd vehicle doesn't have either of these items listed. -- Is a trailering package an option on Denali's or do they all come equipped the same? The Denali's seem to come with everything standard so just trying to sort out what's included and what isn't. Appreciate any insights.

I had an '07 Yukon XL Denali, not sure if it had an engine cooler or trans cooler.
Regardless, it had no issues pulling my '05 X-star which is heavier than your '02 X-star so you should be ok. You could always add those coolers on if you wanted.

All have a receiver hitch. Heavy duty towing package is an option.

I thought trim levels were all standard, including receiver and tranny cooler standard with 6.2. I can't verify.

On Canadian vehicles, you're absolutely correct. I have heard that there are different option packages on the American trucks though.

My 05 with the 6.0 has the trailering package standard.

Different options like engines may include groups of options as standard features within that option group. The best way to know for sure if the vehicle you're looking at has the option you want is to look for that option code on the sticker attached to the inside of the glove box door. I believe the code for the heavy duty towing package is Z82. I'll try to remember to verify that option code for you today.

07-13 Denali's all come in 6.2l.what year are looking for? I have an 09 and it has the transmission cooler and towing hitch and etc.... All was standard. Also 6.2l is standard.

They do have a 2WD option or AWD. Mine is AWD so that maybe the reason for the HD trailering package?

The only options available on a Denali in Canada are rear power sliding window and the navigation system. Everything else is standard equipment.

Another way to verify exactly what you're buying is to use the RPO codes (3-digit alpha-numeric). The entire vehicle's codes are affixed to the bottom of the glovebox on GM vehicles. The list every option of the build for that vehicle. You can then look them up on a Master List of RPO codes (found one on the internet, linked below). The attached Master List may not be the most current though. The codes include color codes, engine, transmission, etc. One feature I discovered when I bought my '05 Tahoe was the 'Premium Smooth Ride' option as they call it, which is the Nivomat 'shocks' for loose term. It isn't the air shock system but they self-level (to some degree) when loaded with a trailer. I think that comes std. on the newer vehicles. Easy to spot if you look at the rear shocks as they are the size of a soup can instead of the typical shock dia. Good luck with the upgrade.
