2016 GMC Yukon Denali New Car Reviews

We're big fans of the Suburban's long history as a great tow vehicle. When we got our hands on the latest GMC Yukon Denali, one of the first things we did was hook it up to a trailer and tow a car to a track two hours away.

I like big trucks, so this thing was perfect for me. It's also perfect for anybody who can't resist checking every last option off their order sheet. What better way to make a vehicle do it all than to just keep adding to it! Towing? Check. Speed? Check. Cargo space? Check. Passenger space? Check. Awesome stereo? Check. Lots of shiny buttons? Again, check. This thing drove like a cruise ship and looked like a highway pileup of dresser Harleys, but I loved it anyway. I think driving it even made me more American (for a few days). If you're richer than a Koch brother, carry a lot of people, and also have a racing addiction, then I couldn't think of a better tow vehicle for you.
