First Spin: 2021 GMC Yukon

2021 GMC Yukon Denali

Consumer Guide AutomotiveOver the past 20 years or so, most SUVs have morphed from a body-on-frame, truck-based construction to become “crossover” SUVs that utilize car-like unibody construction. The upside of this shift in design is better on-road driving dynamics and better driver ergonomics. The downside is reduced towing capacity and diminished capabilities in serious off-roading.

2016 GMC Denali

Denali’s signature “chain mail” grille is what separates the top-end Yukon from its lesser stablemates. It also likely contributed to our tester’s $74,000 sticker.

2015 Tahoe and Suburban

The tested LTZ represents the top of the Tahoe lineup. While it boasts a rich-looking interior, “lesser” models ride better.

A previous post outlined the changes made to GM’s redesigned full-size SUVs for 2015; this one concentrates on how those changes affect the driving experience.

All of these models come with GM’s “EcoTec3” 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 except for the top-line GMC Denali, which sports a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter version. As expected, the Denali feels stronger than the others, but acceleration – at least with just two people aboard – is more than adequate in all. The only fly in the ointment is that the 6-speed automatic transmission (which is standard on all models) occasionally exhibits some delay before downshifting when the throttle is stabbed while underway.
