The 2011 Yukon is closely related to its corporate cousins, the Chevy Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade. Often overshadowed by its corporate cousins from Chevrolet and Cadillac, the 2011 Yukon is a comfortable, upscale SUV for buyers who prefer to stay under the radar.
If you’re shopping large SUVs, you probably need a vehicle that can seat up to nine people, go off-road and do some towing. Most 2011 GMC Yukon review say the GMC Yukon should be on your list. The 2011 GMC Yukon continues a long tradition of sport utility vehicles of exceptional performance and quality.
The 2011 GMC Yukon is expected to carry over mostly unchanged for the new model year. It will be offered in three trim levels, will have two or four-wheel drive, and can seat either five to nine people. Available in both two wheel and four wheel drive, the basic two wheel drive 1500 SLE of 2011 Yukon comes equipped with a gas/ethanol 5.3 liter or 4.8 liter, V8 engine.
The top end two wheel drive is the 2WD 4dr 1500 Denali with a 6.2 liter, V8 engine. The four wheel drive Yukon comes in 2011 GMC Yukon SLE and SLT versions with 5.3 liter V8 engine, and the AWD 4dr 1500 Denali is the top of the line for this model with a 6.2 liter engine. The two wheel drive 2011 Yukon SLE engine is rated at 295 hp, while the SLE 4WD is equipped with a 320 hp engine with Active Fuel Management.
The 2011 Yukon Denali models come with 403 hp engine. The 2011 Yukon Hybrid 2WD and 4WD models are available with electric drive system and are rated at 332 hp. All 2011 Yukon models feature six speed automatic transmissions with electronic overdrive, and tow/haul mode and tap up/tap down shifting.
The exterior of the 2011 Yukon should carry over unchanged for the new model year. All 2011 Yukon colors offers 9 options for the exterior except the 2011 Yukon Denali colors which offer only black color option for the exterior and interior. The 2011 Yukon boasts an attractive cabin with high-quality materials.
The control layout is simple and straightforward, and the available navigation system is also easy to use despite a smaller screen than newer GM models have. All 2011 Yukon models should come with heated side mirrors, roof rails, halogen headlights, and a rear step bumper. Upgraded trims of 2011 Yukon offer different features, such as different wheels, a unique grille, power lift gate, and a sunroof.
Competitors of the 2011 Yukon
The 2011 Yukon is a leading choice for a traditional large SUV thanks to its comfortable cabin and strong towing and hauling capabilities. But for many people, a large crossover SUV might work out better. Should a more rugged, tow-ready vehicle be needed, the 2011 Yukon (including its high-lux Denali trim) is certainly one of the best vehicles available.
Its Tahoe sibling is another. The Ford Expedition offers a fold-away third-row seat but isn’t as powerful as the 2011 Yukon. The Toyota Sequoia is probably the 2011 Yukon most serious competitor; it offers a similar mix of performance and utility. But if you don’t expect to have anything beyond modest towing needs, we suggest checking out large crossovers like the GMC Acadia (and related Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse), Ford Flex and Mazda CX-9.
Buyers who need lots of interior space and who don’t plan to tow or go off-road should look at large crossovers, not a large SUV like the 2011 Yukon. The 2011 Yukon is already available now as the 2011 Yukon Denali release date is on late 2012.
