Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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?

The Buick Enclave rolls into 2020 with a new, optional Sport Touring package. Available exclusively on the mid-range Essence trim, the new appearance package adds a black mesh front grille, body-color grille surround, and chrome-and-graphite 20-inch wheels. All Enclave models now come with an updated infotainment system with an 8.0-inch display; high-definition backup and 360-degree exterior cameras are also available. Premium and high-end Avenir models offer slightly more in the way of luxury thanks to a massage function for the driver and front-seat passenger; four-way power-adjustable lumbar support is also now standard for those seats.

Pros
Graceful styling, generous infotainment offerings, cargo-hauling champ.

Cons
Obvious evidence of cost cutting, expensive driver-assistance tech, mediocre fuel economy.
