The Car Connection's Take

7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 GMC Yukon Denali is evidence that big, capable body-on-frame sport-utility vehicles can be supremely comfortable and luxurious. Rugged good looks and a strong powertrain make the 2011 Nissan Armada desirable, but compared to other large SUVs its lacking in most other respects.
