Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Both the R1S and the Rivian brand itself are new entrants in the SUV marketplace. The R1S will be sold directly to consumers, although Rivian says that it also will set up a network of service centers and Tesla-like stores. The R1S will go on sale in early 2021.To take advantage of the R1S's longest available driving range, buyers will need to spring for the largest 180.0-kWh model. We think it's worth it given that the average driver will need to recharge the battery less frequently and the extended range will come in handy for road trips.

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 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
