The tall, heavy Yukon responds slowly to steering inputs, but the chassis reacts with surprising alacrity to spirited driving. The base suspension on our test truck shrugged off pavement blemishes without ever feeling flustered or unsettled, and the Yukon proved as comfortable as many a luxury sedan when wafting down the highway. We never experienced harsh impacts despite Michigan’s famously pockmarked roads, but Denali models, which have standard adaptive dampers (called Magnetic Ride Control), have a much sharper, less comfortable ride. There’s not a vehicle in the class that can stop on a dime, though most come to rest in similar distances. The Yukon’s brake pedal feels substantial and responds in a stable, linear fashion.
