I’m currently considering trading in my 2020 Range Rover Velar for a 2021 Yukon Denali—I just need something bigger than my Velar. Curious as to everyone’s thoughts on the good and bad with this new body style and year. I think the design looks fantastic from the exterior but I also realize that with new design / body style changes come issues on the first year typically. Give it to me.

Dealer chiming in. We really have not seen a lot of issues on these. There was one batch that had a set of bad valve springs on the 6.2L, a while ago, but that affected a couple models and wasn’t exclusive to Yukon. The only real negative feedback I see are based on the rear entertainment system and the various restrictions that users run into trying to use various devices (ie, can’t stream wireless from apple devices easily). Not necessarily a design flaw but a factor of navigating the various legalities inherent with the device and software manufacturers. Only really headache you will have….finding one. Be flexible and you should be ok.

Mostly good. Nice interior. Feels more spacious.
Things you might care about:
* If you want roof cross-rails get them with the car & don’t accept the car without them — its a new system — GMC parts are on permanent back order & no 3rd party options yet – so you are SOL if you need ’em.
* Has automatic engine-stop at lights — there is a button to turn it off but resets itself to “on” between drives. (There may be setting in a menu somewhere to override that – but have not found it yet)
* No DVD player – can get phone HDMI adapter and play from there as long as you don’t need you phone while the kids are watching
* Uses USB-C plugs — very up to date! — annoying if your other kit is not latest and greatest.
