Exterior

Painted black and trimmed in chrome, my Yukon Denali test vehicle looked more like its Escalade corporate cousin than a tough truck. The Yukon is probably the safest-looking of the three siblings, with chrome used tastefully in all the right places. The Tahoe is a bit more aggressive and the Escalade more chromified. In black, the Yukon looks like it could shuttle either foreign dignitaries or rap stars, and maintains a look as elegant as any vehicle this big can manage.

Most noticeable to anyone approaching the Yukon are its huge, square headlamps and chrome mesh grille. It's a look that says "big" and not much else, but at least it's making a statement. The rest of the Yukon's look is generic. Although it's all too easy to make something this large look ugly, the Yukon never crosses into that unappealing territory. If you're trying to make a style statement, though, either the Tahoe with its more aggressive front end or the Escalade with its intricate grillwork would be the way to go. If you don't want to be noticed, pick the Yukon.
