2011 GMC Yukon Styling

7.0
Styling
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.

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