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.

GM’s popular full-size SUVs are redesigned for 2015, gaining greater cargo versatility and a host of new features. They’re going on sale now. (Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban shown.)

When you already own 75% of a high-profit class of vehicles, there’s probably little incentive for a redesign. But that’s what GM is doing with its quartet of popular, full-size SUVs.

Chevrolet has just taken the wraps off all-new versions of its “large and larger” full-size SUVs. The Chevrolet Tahoe and its longer-wheelbase, longer-overall-length sibling, the Suburban, have both been redesigned from the ground up for the 2021 model year.
