Since both GMC and Chevy are part of General Motors, there is often a lot of overlap when it comes to the vehicles they develop and their performance. For example, the 2022 GMC Yukon/Yukon XL and 2022 Chevy Tahoe/Suburban are built on the same platform and share much of the same design. At first, this might seem like it just means you have four different models that should just be two vehicles, but in reality, it gives you a lot of freedom to get the setup you are looking for. If you want something a bit more budget-friendly with more trim options, then the Chevy models work well, while the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL give you the same great engineering with more refined features.
The comparisons between these two models can get a little confusing since GMC and Chevy use different naming conventions, but it is really quite simple. When looking at these vehicles, just remember that the GMC Yukon is built on the same platform as the Chevy Tahoe, while the Yukon XL shares a platform with the Chevy Suburban. For the 2022 model year, all of these models continue last year’s design, which means they are larger and more spacious than before. All four have three different engines to choose from: a standard 5.3L V8 engine, an available 6.2L V8, and an available 3.0L turbo-diesel. You can also pick either standard two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive on any of these models.
There are some key differences between these models, despite all of the similarities in their designs and overall performance. For example, a new 12-inch digital instrument cluster is available on the Chevy models but is standard on both of the Yukon models, regardless of which trim you choose. The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are also available with the exclusive Denali trim, which delivers incredible luxury thanks to a Galvano chrome grille, heated/ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, an automatic heated steering wheel, and much more. No matter which of these models you choose, however, you are going to get a fantastic SUV that is built to take you, your friends, and your family wherever you want to go.
Although it is the smaller of the two GMC Yukon models, the standard Yukon is still a large, three-row SUV that has plenty of space inside for passengers and cargo. Four different trims are available for the Yukon, starting with the SLE, followed by the SLT, the off-road-focused AT4, and the incredibly luxurious Denali. No matter which trim you choose, however, the Yukon comes with a 12-inch driver information center, and the Infotainment system features Google Built-In with voice controls and embedded navigation using Google Maps.
In terms of performance, the GMC Yukon has three engines available, starting with a standard 5.3L V8 that delivers 355 hp. An available 6.2L V8 engine boosts that up to 420 hp, while there is also an available 3.0L I-6 turbo diesel that offers 277 hp. No matter which engine you pick, however, it comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission for a smooth and responsive driving experience. The standard engine gets an estimated 15 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway, while the diesel engine gives you an estimated 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG highway.
When properly equipped with the standard engine and two-wheel drive, the Yukon can handle towing up to 8,400 lbs – it also gives you up to 122.9 cu.ft. of total interior cargo space behind the front seats. The new independent rear suspension that was just added last year allows for a lower floor to give your third-row passengers great legroom and space to be comfortable. Best of all, the first-in-class available four-corner air ride adaptive suspension and magnetic ride control allow for an incredibly comfortable time on pretty much any kind of road.
Although both GMC Yukon models are large, three-row SUVs, the Yukon XL is the bigger of the two and provides substantially more interior space. While it might be larger, the Yukon XL does not lack for features, offering four different trims for you to choose from, including the off-road-focused AT4 and the incredibly sophisticated Denali. No matter which trim you choose, you get a standard 12-inch driver information center cluster and a connected Infotainment system that features Google Built-In, providing you with voice controls and embedded navigation using Google Maps.
A large SUV like the Yukon XL needs plenty of power under the hood to make it fun to drive, which this model delivers on with three different engine options. The standard engine is a 5.3L V8 that offers 355 hp, while an available 6.2L V8 delivers 420 hp, and an available 3.0L turbo-diesel offers 277 hp. No matter which engine you choose, you get a 10-speed automatic transmission for a responsive ride, plus a first-in-class available four-corner air ride adaptive suspension for an incredibly smooth experience on the road. Combine this with available magnetic ride control, and you have a large SUV unlike anything else out there.
Standard safety features on the Yukon XL are fantastic and include automatic emergency braking, a forward collision alert, front, and rear park assist, and front pedestrian braking. The large size of the Yukon XL gives you an incredible 144.7 cu.ft. of total interior cargo space, plus an independent rear suspension allows for a lower floor that gives your third-row passengers more room to enjoy. When properly equipped, the Yukon XL can tow up to 8,300 lbs, making it a fantastic choice for spending the day on the lake, doing some tailgating, or going camping for a weekend (or even longer).
Built on the same platform as the GMC Yukon, the Chevy Tahoe is a large, three-row SUV that is slightly smaller than the Chevy Suburban. That being said, this is still a fantastic option if you want a large SUV and prefer the overall design and styling of Chevy models. There are six different trim levels available for the Tahoe, starting with the LS, and followed by the LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country trims. This gives you a lot of freedom to get exactly the features you want while saving money by skipping anything you are not looking for.
Three different engines are offered for the Chevy Tahoe, including a standard 5.3L V8 engine that delivers 355 hp. There is also an available 6.2L V8 engine that offers 420 hp, as well as a 3.0L I-6 turbo-diesel engine that gives you 277 hp. Both the 6.2L V8 and the diesel option deliver an impressive 460 lb-ft of torque, and no matter which engine you choose, it comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. With all of this power and when properly configured, the Tahoe can tow up to 8,400 lbs.
The interior of the Tahoe is very spacious and comfortable, offering up to 122.9 cu.ft. of total cargo volume behind the front seats. A 12-inch configurable digital instrument cluster is standard on the LT trim and higher, though not on the starting LS trim. Other available features include Google Built-In, which comes standard on LT trims and higher, as well as an optional 15-inch head-up display on higher trims.
The Chevy Suburban is the bigger of the two large SUVs offered in the Chevrolet lineup and shares a platform with the GMC Yukon XL. Much like the Chevy Tahoe, the Suburban is available with six different trim levels for you to choose from. This gives you a tremendous amount of freedom to get exactly the right features you are looking for, and there are a number of available packages to let you customize it even further.
Chevy offers three engines on the Suburban, starting with a standard 5.3L V8 that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. You can pick an available 6.2L V8 that boosts that up to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque or choose an available 3.0L I-6 turbo-diesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. All three engines come with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and when properly equipped, the Suburban can tow up to 8,300 lbs.
As the larger of the two Chevy SUVs, the Suburban has interior space comparable to the GMC Yukon XL, giving you up to 144.7 cu.ft. of total interior cargo space behind the front seats. The independent rear suspension of the modern Suburban lets it have a lower floor that gives your third-row passengers more room to stretch out. A number of great interior features, including a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and Google Built-In functionality, are standard on the LT trim and higher but not on the starting LS trim.
