Dear sirs: Asking for your advice on your opinion on which truck to purchase. Of the four Toyota, Gmc, Ford and Dodge I am considering buying their top end model with largest powertrain. Leaning toward Denali. Thanks, 12921985

I would strongly recommend you not consider the current Denali until you see the new GM line coming out in a few months. The changes are dramatic; specifically, all aluminum engines, direct injection, cylinder deactivation, plus many improvements and enhancements to the trucks themselves. Toyota is also coming out with a new model, though powertrain options are the same. There is some evidence that GM also plans to add 8 speed transmissions to its trucks. This would further enhance fuel mileage.
