Driving Impression

The 5.3-liter V8 delivers plenty of smooth power, the 6.2-liter even more so. Both develop peak horsepower at more than 4000 rpm, and they cruise at less than 2000 even at 65 mph.

The six-speed automatic chooses its gears well. Even if you don’t use your Yukon for towing, you might want the towing package because the way it programs the transmission is sharper around town. There’s a manual mode that actually does rev-matching downshifts like a sports car, we like it.

The Denali’s eight-speed automatic has quicker and smoother shifts with smaller surges because the engine speed doesn’t change as much. That’s one of the reasons for more transmission speeds. The added gears also allow easier engine braking on long grades.

The Yukon is as easy and pleasant to drive as a car, as long as you pay attention to where its corners are. It turns tight, better than many sedans, improving the large SUV experience parking in malls. The XL is another story.

The handling is secure and stable, with electric rack-and-pinion steering. The power assist is consistent during slow-speed maneuvering.

The ride is more comfortable with the standard 18-inch wheels than with the optional 20-inch wheels, partly because the bigger wheels use tires that have less of a sidewall height to absorb bumps. The available Magnetic Ride Control feels like magic to us, and makes all the problems go away. The shock absorbers continuously adjust in milliseconds to the road surface. On washboard surfaces the system is a blessing.

Walk Around

The Yukon shows masculine presence, with square corners like square shoulders. Edges, angles, and character lines on its sheetmetal give it a sharp and tailored look.

GM designers paid close attention to aerodynamics. The doors are triple-sealed, set into the body.

The Denali has its own grille, and high-intensity discharge headlamps. Other models have projector-beam headlamps.

Interior Overview

“”

It doesn’t feel like a truck inside, with all the quiet, the soft touch materials, and the center stack with its large dials, dominated by the IntelliLink infotainment screen big icons. The center console is big and deep enough for a tablet or notebook computer.

The Denali is downright luxurious, with its ambient lighting, Bose surround sound audio system, and Blu-Ray entertainment in the rear seat.

The third and second rows fold almost flat. We read one outraged comment in a forum because the folded rear seatbacks sloped upward, so you can’t put groceries behind the front seats or the bags will dump. It is true, we have been there.

There’s plentiful legroom in the second row, not quite decent in the third row, unless it’s Yukon XL although headroom is still tight back there.

There’s optional power to fold the second and third rows flat, an optional retractable step up into the cabin, and an optional head-up display that you can’t read with sunglasses.

It’s remarkably quiet inside, with the triple-sealed doors and glass treated to absorb sound. Most of the sound in the cabin is the rumble of the engine through the exhaust pipe.

Forward visibility is excellent, with high seating, slim pillars, and sloping fenders. A rearview camera and proximity sensors are standard, and it’s a very good thing.

Summary

The Yukon checks off every box in the big SUV class, with a rating of compelling. Styling, cabin, features, chassis, engine, transmission, differential, ride, handling, cargo capacity, seating. Another way of saying, What’s not to like?
