The base and AT4 trucks get the Tahoe/ Suburban dash.

The exterior styling is a great effort from a studio that has been a bit polar lately. The "unique" interior, however, is an absolute mess.

 

They'll sell a ton. Good on 'em.

GM's Arlington Texas assembly plant will be running max overtime when this new 2021 Yukon along with 2021 Tahoe, Suburban, and Escalade start production.

The grill on the AT4 looks much better than the upmarket Denali.

Overall it looks fine, but I still prefer the Expedition.

It looks good. I'm very surprised the Denali gets its own dash top, and that' it's not just shared across the whole Yukon lineup. Seems like an expensive change for only a portion of sales.

 

It'd be nice to see Expy get its own interior, though I understand why they do it.

Perhaps they plan on pushing the price point of the Denali even higher, justifying the additional expense. 
 

The Yukon is definitely the best looking of the trio, and a solid effort.

Someone over at GMI was saying Denali sales are 60% of sales for Yukon, which I didn't realize.

I'm sure most buyers get a Yukon for the sole purpose of getting the Denali trim, so I'm surprised it's not higher.  It does have a longer warranty than the Chevys so that's another reason.

I’m not surprised. It’s definitely been the best looking of the bunch.

And you get a better motor.

Anyone understand what the middle lump is in the vertical slot to the right of the gear selector buttons?  Why not just have buttons?

They did some push/pull combo thing.  I think you push for park and neutral, and pull for reverse/drive.

Seen one on the road the other morning. it was next to the current model and it looked strangely tall and boxy. You could see a lot of the IRS underneath. proportions looked off and unfinished.

GMC isn't a hip, young startup, but its engineers are out to prove it's possible to teach an old dog new tricks. The next-generation Yukon will offer adventurers seeking a quick turn-around a "Hurricane Turn" feature that functions a lot like Rivian's Tank Turn technology. The two systems use different hardware to perform a similar action.

We didn't hear anything about the Hurricane Turn feature during the Yukon's unveiling because GMC planned to keep it under wraps until later, but an eagle-eyed report at Motor Trend uncovered it and quizzed the firm. It's real, and it's engaged when the driver switches the stability control system off, energetically turns the steering wheel in either direction, and mashes the accelerator pedal to the floor. The Yukon needs to be on a loose surface, too.

If you're turning right, the on-board computer applies braking power to the passenger-side wheels to prevent them from spinning, while the engine continues to turn the driver-side wheels to rotate the Yukon on its own axis. The exact opposite happens if you're turning left. It's clever and relatively simple; there's no extra hardware required to enable the feature, though it shows the next Yukon is far more advanced than its predecessor.
