Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Not much. Mechanically the Tahoe remains unchanged, as does the interior. New items are limited to the wheels: Chevy offers new 22-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels with custom silver accents and 22-inch machined-aluminum wheels with a bright silver finish.

Pros
Rugged construction, 8600-pound max tow rating, quiet cabin.

Cons
Cramped third row, high load floor, not fuel efficient.

The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe comes with four wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Minor revisions to optional feature availability.

Pros
Seating for up to nine people
Standard V8 offers impressive towing capability
Interior is well-trimmed and quiet
Optional 6.2-liter V8 adds performance and capability

Cons
Sluggish engine and brake responses
High trunk floor makes loading difficult and reduces cargo space
Maneuvering in tight spaces is a challenge

In its last year before a redesign, the 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe offers old-school SUV chops with a heaping helping of additional options and features.

Pros
Strong V-8 engines
Easy infotainment system
Plenty of options
Big, luxurious cabin
Massive towing capacity

Cons
Truck-like ride and handling
Subpar efficiency
High cargo floor
Tiny storage behind third row
Crossovers and minivans offer more space

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
