Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Based on the BMW X7 SUV,Turbocharged V8 makes 612 horsepower.Retuned suspension.

PROS
Thundering acceleration
Impressive array of advanced driver aids
Exclusivity of the Alpina badge

CONS
Not enough differentiation from the BMW X7
Interior is cluttered with buttons
Ride quality can suffer on less than perfect roads

The Alpina XB7 is as fast as it is luxurious and as practical as it is well equipped. The trouble is the same is true of the closely related BMW X7 M50i, which is significantly cheaper.

PROS
Hugely fast
Very spacious and practical
Outstanding infotainment system

CONS
Too similar to an X7 M50i
Much more expensive than the M50i
A lot of road noise

By: 
whatcar.com

PROS
Big, refined power;
understated design;
Decent ride comfort,
even on big wheels.

CONS
Awfully big and thirsty,
unsettling stability-control interventions,
priced for exclusivity.

An all-new Yukon bows for 2021 and it rides on a new platform shared with the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, but wearing distinct styling. As with the Chevys, the 2021 GMC Yukon will come with an independent rear suspension, a first for the large GM SUVs.While both the rough-and-tumble AT4 and its butch looks and off-road equipment and the luxurious Denali and its hand-stitched leather interior seem the most compelling, the one to go for it actually the well-equipped and more affordable SLT. This mid-range model comes packed with features that most buyers are looking for, including leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, 20-inch wheels, a power rear liftgate, and a suite of driver-assistance features.

Coming to an upper-middle-class neighborhood near you: The 2021 GMC Yukon is richer and bigger, with details and a price tag to match.

Pros
Bolder looks
Upscale Denali trim
Tougher AT4 trim
Available turbodiesel
And it’s bigger…

Cons
…but does it really need to be?
Lots of options
Denali goes heavy on chrome look
How much will it tow?

By:

The GMC Yukon has been fully redesigned for 2021.

Pros
New independent rear suspension benefits ride and cargo capacity
Longer wheelbase increases passenger comfort
Redesigned interior is substantial improvement over the outgoing model
Newly available diesel-powered engine

Cons
Lacks maneuverability in parking lots and city streets
Not much different than the less expensive Chevrolet Tahoe
