Active Response 4WD
Max Cargo Volume
Freshly redesigned for 2021, both the GMC Yukon and the Chevy Tahoe are slated to arrive at Houston-area dealerships this summer. The two SUVs have a lot in common at the core—they’re built on the same pickup platform and offer identical engine options—but diverge dramatically when it comes to design aesthetics and creature comforts.
As a result, choosing between the Tahoe or Yukon will likely come down to personal taste. Compare the GMC Yukon vs. Chevy Tahoe with Big Star Buick GMC, and don’t hesitate to reach out for more info about your favorite trims and features!
Whether you choose the Tahoe or Yukon, you’ll find it larger and more spacious than the previous model year. That’s thanks in part to the pickup platform, which also lends both SUVs a workman-like appeal. A new independent rear suspension opens up more cargo space inside both models. Either the Tahoe or Yukon offer the following dimensions:
The two SUVs are just as similar under the hood, offering the same base 355-hp 5.3L V8 engine and V8 upgrades, including a 420-hp turbo-diesel. In addition, both now feature smarter cylinder deactivation systems and stop/start systems. With the Tahoe or Yukon, you’ll choose from the following engine options:
There’s still a key difference to keep in mind here: Active Response 4WD is exclusive to the GMC Yukon. This advanced drive system uses an electronic limited-slip differential (known as eLSD) to adjust traction and power distribution to fit Channelview driving conditions in real time. In other words, the Yukon is a better choice if you need an SUV that’s just as capable off the road as on it.
Thanks to their shared pickup platform, the Tahoe and Yukon do have a lot in common design-wise. But the difference is in the details: featuring a smaller grille and chrome elements throughout the body, the Yukon confers luxury and refinement — rather than the work-truck appeal of the Tahoe.
On the onside, the GMC Yukon offers a completely redesigned dashboard for the range-topping Denali trim. All of this matters when you consider the marginal price difference between the two. For just $1,700 more, the Yukon delivers a luxury driving experience that you won’t get with the Tahoe.
