2021 GMC Yukon First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes. When the Escalade is a little too rich for your blood and a Chevy a tad too plebian, GMC is right there to perfectly meet your large SUV needs. The all-new 2021 Yukon and its extra-long brother the Yukon XL have plenty of new tricks up their sleeves including an even more luxurious Denali model and the addition of the more rugged AT4 trim. Families will appreciate the Yukon’s nearly 5” longer wheelbase which substantially expands 3rd row legroom and max cargo volume. The Yukon XL also grows in those regards but more modestly. A new sliding 2nd row seat makes getting in and out of that 3rd row easier than ever. Of course, the new independent rear suspension also plays a role in the smarter packaging as well as elevating the Yukon’s ride sophistication. Built in Texas, the 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL go on sale this summer. https://testdrivenow.com/2021-gmc-yukon-first-look/
HARLEY DAVIDSON FAT BOY INSPIRED FORD F250 TO ARRIVE FOR SPRING. Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Tuscany Motor Co. today introduced the 2020 Harley-Davidson™ Branded Ford F-250 edition truck in Las Vegas. It is the latest in a growing lineup of Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® motorcycle-inspired trucks manufactured through Tuscany Motor Co. based on Ford and GMC truck models.
“The Harley-Davidson™ Ford F-250 edition fulfills customer requests for additional towing capacity and celebrates their passion for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles,” said Jeff Burttschell, Vice President, Tuscany Motor Co. “Working closely with Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling and Design at Harley?Davidson, we created another fantastic truck worthy of the Harley-Davidson name and coincides with the debut of the Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® 30th Anniversary motorcycle.”
The new truck includes over 65 edition-specific components that make the 2020 model truck distinctly Harley-Davidson. The styling was inspired by the famous Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® model.
Driven by cheaper fuel prices and a resurgent appetite for all things large, the truck segment is in the midst of a renaissance like never before: they’re bigger, smarter, more capable and increasingly luxurious with jaw dropping price tags. And this one is a real monster – the all-new GMC Sierra Heavy Duty.
The price of this truck starts at $57,700 and with options checks in at a healthy $77,155 so Professional Grade doesn’t come cheaply. But this is no doubt a very impressive ¾ ton pickup with off-road chops, huge presence and the trailering tech to match.
I finally made it to summer vacation which, as you know, means I’m up in Maine. And this year’s workhorse is the 2019 GMC Acadia; a 3-row, midsize SUV that was last redesigned 3 years ago. It has done a yeoman’s job of everything I’ve asked of it thus far and if you’re considering one here are 10 things you need to know.
GMC is strengthening its 2020 truck and SUV lineup with premium, bold styling and smarter technologies. GMC raises the bar by adding standard safety features to Terrain and offering the first-ever AT4 Acadia. Acadia joins Sierra 1500 and Sierra Heavy Duty as the newest addition to the AT4 sub-brand, which will be available across the entire GMC lineup in the next two years. The successful rollout of GMC’s next generation pickups continues with the addition of innovative features to the Sierra 1500 and the launch of an all-new Sierra Heavy Duty.
