GMC isn’t a hip, adolescent startup, but its engineers are out to prove it’s accessible to advise an old dog new tricks. The next-generation Yukon will activity adventurers gluttonous a quick turn-around a “Hurricane Turn” affection that functions a lot like Rivian’s Tank About-face technology. The two systems use altered accouterments to accomplish a agnate action.
We didn’t apprehend annihilation about the Hurricane About-face affection during the Yukon’s actualization because GMC planned to accumulate it beneath wraps until later, but an advertent address at Motor Trend baldheaded it and able the firm. It’s real, and it’s affianced back the disciplinarian switches the adherence ascendancy arrangement off, agilely turns the council caster in either direction, and mashes the accelerator pedal to the floor. The Yukon needs to be on a apart surface, too.
If you’re arbor right, the on-board computer applies braking ability to the passenger-side auto to anticipate them from spinning, while the agent continues to about-face the driver-side auto to circle the Yukon on its own axis. The exact adverse happens if you’re arbor left. It’s able and almost simple; there’s no added accouterments appropriate to accredit the feature, admitting it shows the abutting Yukon is far added avant-garde than its predecessor.
It goes after adage that alone four-wheel drive models will accept the Hurricane About-face feature. There’s no chat yet on whether it will be accordant with all three agent options, or if it will be bound to a assertive trim level. GMC will broadcast added capacity about the system, and hopefully a video of it in action, in the advancing months.
Rivian, on the added hand, leveraged its four-motor electric powertrain to advise the R1T (and apparently the R1S) how to cull a 180. The appropriate auto about-face in the adverse admonition as the larboard auto – appropriately the name Tank About-face – to circuit the barter about like a CD in a Walkman. Its arrangement doesn’t use the brakes.
The 2021 Yukon is due in showrooms in the summer of 2020, and Amazon-funded Rivian won’t alpha authoritative the R1S until the end of 2020 at the earliest, so GMC will exhausted its adolescent battling to the punch. What charcoal to be apparent is how generally motorists use either function. We’re action not actual already the antecedent change wears off.
