Chevrolet is blessed to aggregate 80 admirable or added from angrily brand-loyal buyers attractive for a top-shelf Tahoe or Suburban, but adorned association attractive to absorb that affectionate of money are usually snobbier about their brands. They’re the association who will end up at the GMC store, area range-topping Denali-spec articles annual for 30 percent of all-embracing retail sales and a amazing 60 percent of Yukon SUV sales. So GMC understandably is emphasizing the differences amid the all-new 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL and their appropriately new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban ancestors in adjustment to absolve the added chef it accuse for them.
GMC has its assignment cut out. The Yukons allotment their architectural upgrades with their afresh alien Chevy twins, the best important of which accommodate a about-face (at continued last) to an absolute rear suspension, the delayed availability of a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel agent (some months afterwards launch), and a top-shelf abeyance advantage featuring air springs and magnetic-ride shocks. The Yukon’s accepted 5.3-liter V-8 is analogously aggregate with the Chevy’s, as is its alternative 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8 and the above diesel. A 10-speed automated manual is accepted beyond the line.
Dimensional increases are additionally mostly shared, acceptation the beneath Yukon assets 4.9 inches in wheelbase, 6.1 inches in length, 10.1 inches in third-row legroom, and huge assets in burden amplitude (up 67 percent abaft the third row and 30 percent overall). The alike bigger Yukon XL assets 4.1 inches in the wheelbase but abandoned 0.9 inch in all-embracing length, additional added bashful boosts in its already vanlike burden ratings.
It would assume as if General Motors’ designers accept calmed bottomward their pens somewhat aback axis out the latest Chevy Silverado, the aboriginal of the admission of new-generation trucks that includes the new Tahoe, Suburban, and these GMCs. The Yukon’s face is almost simple and apple-pie compared to the added apish Tahoeburban’s mug and lightyears better-looking than the somewhat Transformers-like Silverado’s. The Yukon’s administration alone, then, ability be account whatever exceptional GMC accuse over an agnate Chevy.
The new-for-this-year, off-road-focused AT4 trim drives addition block amid the Yukon and the Tahoe and Suburban. It splits somewhat with its Chevrolet Z71-package equivalent, aggregate the aforementioned 4×4 adequacy and asperous actualization upgrades with abundant of the tech and some of the affluence of the high-zoot Yukon Denali. GMC alike carves up the AT4’s altered advanced fascia so that aback the barter is able with the air abeyance and aloft to its off-road acme (2 inches up from nominal), there is approval for about 32 degrees of admission angle. (This bonanza architectonics is not accordant with the agent engine, however, so the Yukon AT4 is gas-only.) Addition key GMC-only feature? The cyberbanking limited-slip rear differential, which collaborates with the GMC’s Active Response 4WD arrangement to bigger accord torque ancillary to ancillary as able-bodied as front-to-rear and allowances from GMC-specific cyberbanking affiliation of these systems with the agent drive modes.
With or after the air suspension, the AT4 comes accepted with the adorned Magnetic Ride Ascendancy electronically adaptive dampers, as able-bodied as AT4-exclusive leather-appointed seats and bond with a altered Jet Black autogenous blush and Brandy accents; and a acrimonious council wheel, acrimonious and aerial advanced seats, and acrimonious second-row outboard seats. Beneath acclaimed (at atomic compared to the Tahoe Z71) AT4 accessories includes a two-speed alteration case, 20-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires, Traction Select Arrangement with off-road mode, acropolis coast control, and skidplates.
Perhaps the better Yukon-versus-Tahoeburban differentiator is the Denali interior, which includes a advisedly altered dashboard architectonics with a altered centermost awning area not aggregate with any added GMC trim variants. (Nor does it accept an according in the Chevrolets’ High Country dashboards, which architecturally are aggregate with basal Tahoe and Suburban trims). The designers were activity for a chic mid-century avant-garde burden with the Denali’s innards, which are additionally offered in four blush schemes (Jet Black, Jet Black and Brownstone, Very Dark Ash Gray and Walnut, Light Shale and Teak) and akin with 18-carat wood.
The Denali autogenous additionally gets a 15-inch blush head-up affectation and a power-sliding advanced centermost animate that can motor aback into the amplitude area the average second-row passenger’s legs are declared to go, bringing its rear cupholders afterpiece to the captain’s armchair passengers. (It’s not offered on models with a average bank seat.) This opens up amplitude for front-seat occupants to abundance a purse or parcel. Powering that animate aback additionally permits admission to a drawer in the basal of the centermost animate (making that article of a abstruse safe space, at atomic aback closed). Chevrolet will eventually get this feature, too, but GMC is announcement it because added GMC Yukons will be able with it, accustomed the accomplished Denalis-are-popular thing.
GMC dresses up the Denali’s exoteric with a “Galvano Chrome” grille, now allegedly configured to accommodate “over 10,000 alone cogitating surfaces.” (We didn’t calculation them, but, uh, the aftereffect is gem-like.) Added Denali accepted accessories includes High Definition Surround Vision camera, rear banal alert, and GM’s fourth-generation Magnetic Ride Ascendancy cyberbanking dampers. Premium-ier Denali options accommodate 22-inch wheels, a across-the-board sunroof, an Air Ride adaptive air-spring suspension, and a full-time Active Response 4WD arrangement that retains a two-speed alteration case.
Final acumen on what GMC hath wrought with its newest full-size SUVs will accept to delay until we get abaft their auto and being their three rows of seats with bodies and being aback they go on auction this summer. We apprehend appraisement to added or beneath bottle the Chevy/GMC differential, with abject trucks starting at about $1,600 USD added and top Denalis ambitious $2,000 to $3,000 USD added than their High Country counterparts. Based on our aboriginal glimpse of the trucks, however, we can say General Motors is aggravating harder than anytime afore to differentiate agnate articles from its GMC and Chevrolet brands, and that’s a acceptable thing.
