GMC and Chevrolet are both owned by the same parent company General Motors– so several of their vehicles are essentially mirror images of each other. The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, and Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia are all examples of vehicles that share the same base frame and performance specs. However, although these vehicles are twins when it comes to engine power and size, they are far from identical.

 

 

GMC vehicles tend to be more luxurious and upscale, while their Chevy counterparts are known for being hardworking and down-to-earth. The 2022 GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe are no different–they have many similarities, but the Yukon has a wider array of features and packages available for drivers. But which one best suits your Detroit lifestyle: Tahoe or Yukon? The team at Ray Laethem Buick GMC, Inc. has put together a guide outlining the major differences between these powerful new SUVs.

GMC Yukon vs. Chevy Tahoe: Price and Performance

Engine performance is one area where the Tahoe and Yukon are identical. They both offer three engine choices: a standard 3.5L V8, a more powerful 6.2L V8, and a 3.0L turbo diesel. Both vehicles come with a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission.

However, because the GMC Yukon is a more sophisticated SUV that offers more features than its Chevy counterpart, it’s offered at a higher starting price. The Chevy Tahoe might be a less luxurious choice, but it comes at a lower price and offers six trim levels to the Yukon’s four. Here are the details:

GMC Yukon vs. Chevy Tahoe: Interior Features

While there are many features available as optional add-ons, Royal Oak drivers will be getting plenty included with the base-level trim. Here are some of the best standard and available interior features you’ll enjoy with the 2022 GMC Yukon:

  • Available Second-Row Power-Release Fold-and-Tumble Seats

  • GMC Pro Safety Plus Package: Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Braking and IntelliBeam
