When we aboriginal saw the 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL beforehand this month, we focused mainly on their looks, their abounding onboard tech and their new accessible AT4 off-road amalgamation (and we were alike able to try the new alive acknowledgment 4WD system, briefly, on a baby course). We may or may not accept additionally been hypnotized, like a moth afore a bug zapper, by the Yukon Denali’s civic park-size grille.
But arguably the bigger account was tucked abroad below the body: Along with the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL accept switched from a solid rear arbor to absolute rear suspension, a affection adopted by the Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator a few years back.
IRS should advance the trucks’ ride and handling, but in all honesty, that was hardly a complaint on the approachable model. Instead, it will antidote one of their biggest, and one of their added unexpected, shortcomings: For actuality such ample vehicles, there’s never absolutely been abundant allowance for burden in the back, abnormally with the third row up.
This has been one of our added constant quibbles with these things, about which we’ve had about annihilation but acceptable things to say. If you accept to backpack both bodies and being on a approved basis, and you charge absolute 4×4 adequacy and body-on-frame towing capacity, you’re acceptable to be abundant bigger served by dispatch up into the Yukon XL (or its Chevy equivalent, the Suburban).
With the accession of absolute suspension, that blueprint changes in a big way. The 2021 Yukon offers 25.5 cubic anxiety abaft the third row and 122.9 cubic anxiety maximum, a abundant 10.1- and 28.2-cubic-foot access over the 2020 trucks. The differences are a little beneath arresting on the Yukon XL; post-third-row accommodation increases alone 1.8 cubic feet, to 41.1, admitting best burden accommodation increases to 144.7 cubic anxiety (a 23-cubic-foot change).
Meanwhile, crosstown battling Lincoln offers 19.3 cubic anxiety abaft the third row of the Navigator, or 34.3 cubic anxiety in the continued wheelbase Navigator L. That grows to a best of 103.3 and 120.2 cubic feet, respectively, with seats folded.
Are autogenous accommodation wars the abutting borderland for full-size SUVs? Who knows? Cubic footage abstracts are not absolutely as alluring as blatant tech, application and torque ratings or towing capacity. But again, this is one breadth breadth we’ve begin accountability with antecedent trucks, and it’s one breadth breadth the GMC offerings are no best deficient.
Further, GMC says the Yukons now get a lower amount floor—another advantage of a added bunched absolute rear abeyance setup, and one with absolute account to anybody attractive to put that anew embiggened burden amplitude to use.
The Chrysler Pacifica, in case you were wondering, offers 32.3 cubic anxiety abaft the third row and 87.5 cubic anxiety abaft the additional row. This grows to 140.5 cubic anxiety back the additional row is bankrupt down, with a super-flat amount attic in Stow-n-Go-equipped Pacificas; minivan partisans still assume to accept a point back it comes to all-embracing stuff-moving capability, admitting this new brand of IRS-equipped SUVs is steadily acerbic the advantage.
