How the New Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon Stack Up Against the Competition

The All-New 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Next Generation 2021 GMC Yukon are bigger and better than ever. These full-size SUVs sit at the top of GM’s vehicle lineup with their commanding presence and spacious cabins. But how do these recently revamped SUVs stack up against the competition? Let’s find out!

To start, let’s cover some key stats. The 2021 Tahoe and Yukon offer a class-leading 420 horsepower when you choose the 6.2L Ecotec3 V8 engine, with an estimated highway fuel economy of around 12.4 L / 100 km plus 460 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for a 5.3L V8 engine or Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel. Now let’s move on to competitive comparisons.


The Ford Expedition’s 3.5L, twin-turbo V6 comes close with 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, but ultimately can’t match GM’s 6.2L V8 on pure power. Despite reduced horsepower with the Expedition, fuel economy is nearly identical to GM’s offerings, also coming in at around 12.4 L / 100 km.

The Tahoe and Yukon easily outclass Nissan’s Armada and its 5.6L V8 engine, which produces 390 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota Sequoia also pales in comparison with its 5.7L V8, offering 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Both offerings from Nissan and Toyota lag behind in fuel economy, offering just 15.7 L / 100 km.

Power aside – what else do the Tahoe and Yukon bring to the table? First-in-class Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension debuts, optimizing ride height and comfort by automatically adjusting suspension. See all around you with a class-leading nine camera views, unmatched by any competitors. Keep your eyes on the road with a class-leading 15” diagonal head-up display, which keeps crucial information right in front of the driver without distracting you from the road. As you may have noticed, “class-leading” becomes a familiar term when describing these incredible new SUVs.

No matter where you look, the new Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon offer so much more than the competition. From power to technology to comfort, General Motors is leading the way. Talk to a Preston Sales Consultant today and we’ll help you find the perfect SUV for your needs!
