It is not unknown that GMC and Chevy tend to enjoy making very similar vehicles of the same class. The Sierra and Silverado are a classic example of this twin manufacturing method practiced by these two automotive giants, but the two vehicles you want to focus on if you have a desire for balanced and convenient SUVs are the 2019 GMC Yukon vs 2019 Chevy Tahoe.
The 2019 GMC Yukon and the 2019 Tahoe are pretty much identical when you look at the stats alone. Their power outputs, dimensions, exterior style, and interior layout will leave drivers completely stumped when deciding which option is better, but sometimes you just need to take a deeper look to find the answer. The main element that will separate these two is how the manufacturer visualized they would make drivers feel and whom they are marketed towards. The 2019 Yukon is a more about luxury and strength while the 2019 Tahoe is all about everyday accessibility. Both excel at providing for their drivers in nearly every situation no matter what their lifestyle is life, so just go with the one that suits how you feel while on the road. If you like to feel like royalty that commands the road wherever you go, you will definitely enjoy the Yukon, but if you like to feel like you put in your hard day’s work and are always striving to be a better person, the Tahoe should suit your needs.
So while these two may seem like two bird of a feather, when it comes to how you feel when behind the wheel, the difference is clear as a sunny day in June.
Performance may be where GMC has always thrived, but the 2019 Chevy Tahoe does a fair job of keeping up with the 2019 GMC Yukon when you break down the numbers, mainly because they share the exact same engine options. Both of these large SUVs offer drivers the choice between a standard or advanced V8 EcoTec3 engine. The standard is a 5.3L V8 engine with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque that pairs well the 6-speed automatic transmission. The advanced choice, for those that have the money and need more power, is a 6.2L V8 engine that delivers a stunning 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque that is paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This option is only available for the most exclusive trim levels though, which are GMCs famous Denali edition and the Chevy Tahoe Premier edition.
Performance isn’t all about power though, both of these fantastic beasts come in either 2WD or 4WD in order to handle some epic off-roading. Whether you have always dreamed of taking the road less traveled, or are just scared of driving in bad weather conditions, the 2019 Yukon and 2019 Tahoe will allow you to push your limits with their stability and handling technology.
If you are set on choosing one of these models based on performance alone, you are most likely going to have a really bad time. They are identical when it comes to under the hood, and that really shouldn’t be a bad thing considering we could always use more quality vehicles like these two.
While it’s not uncommon for vehicles in the same class to have similar performance capabilities it is rare for two vehicles to share the exact dimensions and overall design.
Both the 2019 GMC Yukon and 2019 Chevy Tahoe are both classified as large SUVs that can fit up to eight passengers. When it comes to dimensions inside and out, they both measure to be 204″ L x 81″ W x 74″ H exactly with a maximum of 94.7cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seating is up and 15.3 cubic feet when they are all in use. So if you are focused on space and utility, you won’t find any differences you can go off of. When it comes to style though, you may just be able to see a few worthwhile differences.
The 2019 Yukon and the 2019 Tahoe are both big, bold, and brilliant in style, but looking at the details, you may find a feature or two that you like better on one or the other. Looking at the front of each model, the first thing you will notice is the different grille and light designs.
The 2019 Yukon is sporting a large grille sporting the proud GMC symbol that is cohesively split into three sections with a light trimming of stunning chrome. As for the headlights, they full and solid for increased visibility and boldness with just the tip wrapping around for a bit of whimsy.
The 2019 Tahoe, on the other hand, has its grille sporting the signature bowtie symbol of Chevy that is split into two large chunks with heavy chrome trim. The highlights are closer to a thick backward C-shape and do not wrap around.
While there are probably a few more noticeable style differences with the exterior designs of these two vehicles, these are the most prominent ones that may help make your choice a little easier.
Overall both the 2019 GMC Yukon and 2019 Tahoe excel when it comes to offering drivers plenty of space and commanding looks, but if forced to choose between them based on these factors alone the 2019 Yukon may just have the edge simply because of its cleaner and more cohesive exterior details.
The most significant difference you will find between the 2019 GMC Yukon and the 2019 Chevy Tahoe is what they stand for, and how they make you feel as a driver.

There really is no wrong choice here, but since a choice must be made, it’s best to understand the ideals these models promote.
