Handling Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Premier 4WD better.
"Except Yukon Looks a little better than Suburban, even though both have the same engine, weight, and length, Suburbans handling is much better than Yukon. Both accelerator and brake of Suburban were obviously more responsive than Yukon did. I always felt Yukon was more heavier than Suburban when I was driving. except felt slow response from the engine when I stepped down the accelerator, I had a little confidence to stop a Yukon, its brake was awful. Even the highest trim Denali with bigger engine, still not good enough. Actually, I really wanted a Yukon at the beginning, however I was so disappointed after I test drive Yukon, I even thought I test drove a Lemon car, However, after I kept trying several Yukons, including Denali, still disappointed. Actually I did not expect any surprise from Suburban because everybody told me they were basically the same cars. But I was surprise with Suburbans performance, its handling is much better than Yukon, I tried several Suburban before I got the final conclusion. Finally, I got a Suburban Premier."
Looks/Style Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Premier 4WD worse.
"Simply looks a little better than Suburban because of its grille."
2016 GMC Yukon XL Denali 4WD Review
GuruS75J3 says:
I was looking to buy the new family SUV and rented and drove a 2016 GMC Yukon XL Denali 4WD, Suburban, and Tahoe each for a week (the Tahoe for two). I later test drove the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse FWD. The initial 2018 Chevrolet Traverse drove was the 4 cylinder version. STAY AWAY FROM THI VERSION, its underpowered, sluggish and does not represent the class well. I ended up test driving and buying the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Premier AWD (Redline Edition). Its sleek, look great, blacked out has lots of pick up, maneuverable and handles well in city traffic. The Yukon and Suburban both have more cargo space and a bit more interior space but are Tanks when maneuvering in city traffic, hard to get in and out of small spaced, have no turning radius and worse gas mileage when compared to the Traverse Premier. The Suburbans and Yukons have more HP but their weight slow them down. While the 300HP Traverse is much lighter and has more pick-up. The Traverse gas mileage is also about 2 MPG better than the Suburban and Yukon and Tahoe. The Tahoe was a close competitor bang for your buck. Where it lost out was turning radius and rear cargo space. There’s no room to put any luggage in the back on a long trip. While the Traverse seats 7 comfortably and has enough luggage space for everyone to bring a 3 day capacity duffle or and maybe two small overhead compartment size suitcases. If the Tahoe had been cheaper and made better room of luggage space it would have won overall hands down (the Suburban and Yukon clearly win on luggage space and interior room but that’s it). Which comes back to bang for your buck. The 2018 and 19 Chevrolet Traverse Premier AWD have all the amenities minus HUD as the larger vehicles but for around 16 -20K less. So to fit 7 or travel with a family of 5. The best bang for my buck was the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Premier AWD.

2016 GMC Yukon XL Denali Review
Mitchell says:
We chose the Yukon XL Denali for its big V8 engine and for its very attractive exterior design. In my experience GM vehicles including the ones we’ve owned have all been in the shop for repairs. I would recommend purchasing a Ford for reliability. I give the Yukon the edge for appearance and Ford for quality.
