    GMC isn't a hip, young startup, but its engineers are out to prove it's possible to teach an old dog new tricks. The next-generation Yukon will offer adventurers seeking a quick turn-around a "Hurricane Turn" feature that functions a lot like Rivian's Tank Turn technology. The two systems use different hardware to perform a similar action.

    We didn't hear anything about the Hurricane Turn feature during the Yukon's unveiling because GMC planned to keep it under wraps until later, but an eagle-eyed report at Motor Trend uncovered it and quizzed the firm. It's real, and it's engaged when the driver switches the stability control system off, energetically turns the steering wheel in either direction, and mashes the accelerator pedal to the floor. The Yukon needs to be on a loose surface, too.

    If you're turning right, the on-board computer applies braking power to the passenger-side wheels to prevent them from spinning, while the engine continues to turn the driver-side wheels to rotate the Yukon on its own axis. The exact opposite happens if you're turning left. It's clever and relatively simple; there's no extra hardware required to enable the feature, though it shows the next Yukon is far more advanced than its predecessor.

    You should be able to do that YOURSELF in a Lambo. No computer assist necessary!!

    Hell, I could do that in my '66 Tempest in my teens.

    Wow this Yukon is fantastic! Really love that power center console and the interior in general. Especially stoked that Denali has a unique interior as it should...unlike past efforts. GM invented this segment so I expected greatness but it’s engineering is more than I expected. Can’t wait for the Escalade

    The power center console is a perfect place for hiding your weed if you live in an unenlightened state.

    Lol true although I live in Canada where weed is perfectly legal. However it’s a nice hiding place in general but I’m sure that police departments will soon catch on just as they did when GM first started making hidden storage areas behind the radios in many models

    The Acadia is not very good looking, the grille is too low into the bumper and the headlights are oddly out of proportion.

    When Holden gets the AT4, they will probably add the front electronic locking diff.

    That seems high, I'll have to fire-up my work laptop and see if I have that info; maybe it's 60% of retail sales?

    I have pockets, much deeper than that, but I have no desire to dig that far down onto them; probably part of the reason my pockets are so deep?
