Expert Quotes:

It might make more sense to call the Yukon Denali the unassuming-man's Escalade.

has always stood in the Escalade's shadow...even though mostly superficial differences separate them

Though it looks from the front much like GM's full-size sport-utility vehicles on which it's based (including the GMC Sierra), the 2011 GMC Yukon is a very handsome vehicle, with good proportions and a minimum of unnecessary detailing. Framed simply by tall headlamps, the big GMC grille looks very businesslike, and with big windows and relatively tall sheetmetal that avoids the overwrought, ripped and rippled look worn by some full-size utes, the Yukon looks understated but serious.

Yukon XL are 20 inches longer than standard Yukons, and the extra length goes right into the rear windows and metal, which takes the shape out of balance, but it's still nicely drawn.

The interior of the GMC Yukon is also very straightforward, and has a more rounded, simple style instead of the upright, macho, machine-shop look that some other models sport. The Yukon's interior has slight differences depending on seating configuration, but they all get the same nicely styled interior, with wood grain trim, tightly grained plastics, and soft, upscale-looking upholstery on offer. Denali versions add more luxury touches, like a honeycomb grille up front and Nuance leather and chrome details to the cabin.

Conclusion

The 2011 GMC Yukon doesn't push any styling or design boundaries inside or out, but its design is handsome and upscale.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
