You are in the GMC Yukon
What is this discussion about?
GMC Yukon Denali, GMC Yukon, SUV
Apr 09, 2001 (8:07 pm)
Compiled this info from ai-online.com for a response on another site and thought the readers here might find it of interest.
All sales figures are in units sold for the months of Jan and Feb 2001 compared to the same months in 2000.
FORD: 2001 vs 2000
Explorer/Mountaineer 54,277 vs 73,840 down -26%
Expedition 27,494 vs 31,683 down -13%
Excursion 5,238 vs 7862 down -33%
Navigator 4789 vs 6215 down -23%
GM 2001 vs 2000 (GMC, Chevy and Olds models combined):
Blazer/Jimmy/Envoy/Bravada 49,950 vs 59,371 down -16%
Tahoe/Yukon 40,113 vs 27,253 up +47%
Suburban/Yukon XL 31,061 vs 28,974 up +7.2%
Escalade 2084 vs 3788 (The sales for the Escalade were almost exclusively in Feb. for 2001 as this is a new model and sales were very minimal in Jan. compared to 2000. If you doubled Feb sales (2x 2723) and compared to Jan/Feb 2000 sales were up +43%).
FYI: The Sequoia is not in the same league in sales at 9,494 for the first 2 months of 2001. Time will tell if they become a real competitor to Detroit.
For those making purchasing decisions on popularity, the newly designed full size GM designs are clearly the growth leaders over Ford and Toyota.

Heatwave3...... Didn't take offense to your questions re: Catch-Alls, just trying to help. I received a catalog in the mail today from Performance Products. They carry both Catch-All and Cargo-Logic mats. The Cargo-Logic line has listings for 2001 Yukon & Yukon XL. Might be worth a shot!!! (www.performanceproducts.com)
Thanks for the lead on the relays, just installed them tonight!! They work well. You were right on getting the kick panel back on. That was the hardest part.
mbclk430......Thanks for posting the info on the grill emblem. Can you tell me how you installed it? It appears that the factory emblem snaps out , does the new one snap in, or is it a universal two face tape deal? Also does the size look right? I noticed today that the "perforated" style grill appears to be solid under the factory emblem. Wondering how the new one will cover? Please post.

Yes, the current one snaps out. The billet emblem screw into the same holes (4) with washers and locking nuts. Soon as I find my digital camera........I'll take a picture and post it or send it via e-mail.

mbclk430: I went to the web site you listed to look at the Billet GMC logo - very sharp! I'll be buying one for my 2001 DXL for all the same reasons (seeker, meaner, cleaner), but before I do, I'd like to know where you got one for $56. I'd much rather pay that than the $72.50 at the web site you listed.
Also, if you are still interested in a back-up system, I would highly recommend the Rostra system which uses microwave-based sensing technology (not hindered by weather conditions, mud/dirt, etc). The technology allows you to install the two sensing units behind the plastic part of the Denali's rear bumper, making it invisible. You cannot install in this way on a regular Yukon because of its all-metal bumper, but a small portion of plastic on the Denali's bumper assembly allows you to get away with it. And it does work! I purchased one locally for $156 (best price around by far) and installed it last weekend. It seems to work great. I did a lot of research on these products including Poron and several other "cheaper systems, before deciding on the Rostra system. It is also call the ROSS - Rear Object Sensing System.

dhill3: What advantages did you find on the backup warning system you installed vs. the Poron? I am looking to install a warnign system on a 2001 Denali XL and liked the digital readout and audible signal of the Poron, but haven't made a purchase. How difficult to install was the Rostra system?
Isn't the Poron system also microwave technology?

As I understand it, the Poron and other systems that have been out on the market for a couple of years use more of a "line of sight" or optically-based technology, which requires the sensing units to be visible from the rear-end of the vehicle. That, in addition to the more accurate and reliable sensing ability of the ROSS system is what sold me. I did, however, give up the digital readout feature offered with the Poron. My two cents - I don't want my eyes looking at a digital display on my dash while I'm backing up a 3 ton piece of steel. The tone warning (piezo unit) on the ROSS is okay but the three little (and I mean little) display lights (green, amber, red) that come with it are pretty lame!
Installation was extremely easy and is well documented and supported by photos (specifically of the DXL) on Rostra's web site. Total installation time took me about 45 minutes. It probably could have taken 30 minutes, but I'm very particular.
#516 of 3279 Grill Emblem for Denali

MBCLK430 Thank you for the lead on the grill emblem!!!
I purchased it today thru E & M Wholesale (1-800-924-0647) The cost was $64.95 + shipping. Looking forward to the new "look".
I also noticed today a slight ticking or knocking noise coming from the motor, has any one else noticed this. After reading post about Denali delivered with bad motor it's got me a little worried.

What's the web address for this system?
