The exterior of these SUVs, in general, maintain their big, rugged looks.
A new instrument cluster with a small central screen is attractive and legible, while the Denalis get a different cluster with a much larger and reconfigurable LCD.

One exterior item that contributes to these models' remarkable efficiency for their size is a perilously-low front air dam, even on 4x4 models.
The Yukon also lifts Sierra styling cues, including a new grille, full-width bumper and sculpted sides and fenders for a more modern, even aerodynamic look.
The dash is no longer shared with the pickup trucks, and the broad, plain expanse of the previous model has been junked in favor of a richer design with soft-touch surfaces separated by metal and wood trim.
With a squarer, more straight-edged look, the 2015 GMC Yukon puts on a crisp business suit in place of its previous smart-casual look. The cabin gets a range of upgrades in design and layout, too, moving the Yukon experience closer to luxury territory--and fully into that realm in Denali form.
Real aluminum and genuine wood trims adorn the Denali, giving the Yukon's quality leather a suitable match. The look of the interior is upgraded not just with better materials, but with more modern, almost sedan-like design, shedding some of the truck-like tendencies of the previous-generation Yukon.
A clever rising center display screen hides a cubby space with a powered USB port, making the perfect place to stash your phone out of site while staying connected. In the instrument panel, an LCD display relays several ranges of information, including cylinder deactivation status, gas mileage, and more. The overall effect is of a much more modern, high-tech look.
The squared-off, high-belted exterior of the 2015 Yukon meets a refined, luxurious interior for a much-improved look.
