The Car Pro Test Drives the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali
Thursday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Matt to talk about his test drive of the week, new car models getting diesel versions, as well as other auto industry news.
This week The Car Pro was test driving the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali, not to be confused with the Denali XL which is a longer model. Jerry couldn't help but compare this car to other General Motors SUVs that he has been test driving recently, such as the Tahoe and Suburban, with this Yukon being his 3rd test out of their 4 new SUVs. Reynolds said that he wanted to compare the different cars to find out the differences, and while they all share some features, such as the sliding center console to allow for extra space like the Suburban has, there were important differences as well, such as the touchscreen. The touchscreens on the Suburban and Tahoe were very high on the dash, and felt like a bit of an addon, but on this Yukon Denali, the screen sits down into the dash, making it much easier to reach and operate. This Denali is a sport version of the Yukon that has a 6.2 liter V8 engine that puts out 420 horses, has a nice ride and drive, gets good power and gas mileage, has a HUD on the dash that displays both the speed of the vehicle and the current speed limit, and has a panoramic moonroof. The car has a window sticker price of $84,000.
