I have been combing and reading these forums since October, remaining silent and learning from all of the comments. I specifically waited for the 8sp and wifi, then the Platinum version came out and I loved the interior look over some of the other interior colors or option available on Premium, and of course the new badging. I have had a Denali since 2008,and a 2005 prior to that, very excited to get this baby picked up on Monday. Thanks for everyones comments about important features as well as things to look out for, I hate that some of you have not had such a great experience and hope that it can be resolved for each of you very soon. I looking forward at being a Cadillac raving fan at 46...I sure hope I can pull off the bling of the Escalade over the Denali.... I will keep you updated.

I ordered from a dealer (Cannon Cadillac) in the town where I am from (Lakeland, FL) because I have known Terry for many years and he would take care of me, I will go and pick it up (about 2.5 hrs away) on Monday, but my dad, who is a car guy, was excited about it and went by today to test drive it for me for vibrations and such, said it was smooth through 70. He also took some more pictures...

It looks really good But I still can't understand power running boards being optional on platinum trim

CONGRATULATIONS!
You will love the Platinum.

I love my new Platinum.
It is a 21st Century tank on wheels with many colorful displays.
Very smooth ride and no vibrations others seem to have.
I can see up to five different navigation displays (HUD, CUE, 3 in clusters on my Dashboard) if I choose.
had it 4 weeks, 1100 miles, 14 MPG on regular.
Surround cameras great most places.
Use fisheye low resolution cameras.
My new oceanfront condo has grey concrete 19' by 8' parking space that is very tight to get into.
Have to add some colorful chalk to floor and color full reflects to walls to see in my surround cameras to make parking easier.
No scratches yet but all the concrete so close to our new car.

I took delivery today, flawless transaction, with Outstanding Customer Service and Support from the Team at Cannon Cadillac in Lakeland. Terry and his team did a great job!
200 mi ride home was flawless through various speeds at which I do not want to mention the speeds of testing. I just finished reading the manual and cannot wait to get back into the vehicle tomorrow and play with all the settings to get things set with my preferences.

I am a bit disappointed that you cannot log into Pandora with username and password and use the wifi, rather than the required cell phone using pandora that is plugged in (iphone), or bluetooth (android)...

Text messaging works just fine..

If you have an AT&T business account you cannot simply add the data plan to your existing account... it must be a personal plan then you can add for $10... which makes zero sense, gotta love AT&T ...

The ride is exceptional, the quality of the platinum interior is unbelievable, it is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned or have been a passenger in.... Thanks to the Cadi team for a great vehicle!

Tim
