- Auto up windows

- 4X4 indicator that you can see

- Heated seats that adjust with the climate control. My Volvo has this, the seats slowly cool as the in cab temperature comes up. I leave them on all year, they only only operate when necessary.

- Power folding towing mirrors

- Nicer leather...on the entire seat, not just seating surfaces

- Better quality paint

- Get rid of that hideous On Star antennae on the drivers side roof

- TPMS Delete option...or a system that actually reads correctly and can be re-programmed by the user for loaded and unloaded pressures

- Adjustable back up sensors that allow a receiver hitch to stay in and not "block" the system

- 2 way remote auto start so you know if your truck is running or not

An unlocked ECM?

Realistically, a factory dsp 2/5 option instead of having a tow/haul button, exhaust brake, ect... have a full econ mode, light tow, heavy tow, and full sport mode from the factory.

Get rid of the limp/reduce power/speed modes related to the urea, no point leaving someone stranded cause of no fluid/bad fluid when it's not doing damage to the truck. CEL is enough.

Allow users to change tire size, tire pressures, remote start timers, ect without any tools or stealership trips.

-NO MORE RATTLES!!! So I guess higher quality interior design/materials.
-A frame coating that stays on the frame
-A hitch rated to what the truck can pull
-A factory installed gooseneck hitch
-Auto down/UP on ALL windows
-Dual steering stabilizers
-Factory installed auto steps (Yukon Denali gets them, why not Sierra Denali?)
-Improved sound system (Bose is horrible for auto and home)
-Factory installed spray-in bedliner
-More, heavier duty tie down points in the bed
-Lockable underseat storage
-2500 Denali LONG bed option

I'm sure I can think of more, that's just off the top of my head. I'm really hoping many of these things appear on the 2014 Denali HD, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

How about a standard factory tow package especially on diesel. My truck that I got used had no trailer brake controller or tow mirrors.
