Grand Wagoneer

It goes without saying that the Grand Wagoneer and the Yukon Denali have exteriors that turn heads. Equally impressive and worth a second look is what lies at the heart of each vehicle. So, let’s pop their respective hoods to find out about their capabilities.

Big SUVs Matched With Big Power

The optional 6.2L V8 in the Denali boasts 420 horsepower. It’s impressive, but it’s still no match for the 6.4L V8 of the Grand Wagoneer that kicks out a lively 470 horsepower.

Want to take it up a notch? The available 3.0L Hurricane Twin-Turbo 510 I6 engine in the Grand Wagoneer generates a herculean 510 horsepower. The Denali offers an available 3.0L Duramax® Turbo-Diesel, but it only produces 277 horsepower.

Towing comes easy when you have a high-powered SUV, so haul your travel trailer to the campsite or take your boat out to a remote lake. The Grand Wagoneer has the advantage here. It can tow up to 9,850 pounds when properly equipped, while the Yukon Denali is only capable of pulling 8,200 pounds.

Heading Off-Road

When you’re ready to take the fun off the beaten path, these SUVs offer capable 4-wheel drive systems to conquer whatever path lies ahead. You’ll be able to dial in a driving mode to match the conditions with the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System in the Grand Wagoneer. It comes with five modes:

  • Rock
  • Sand/Mud
  • Snow
  • Auto
  • Sport

Meanwhile, the similar Traction Select System of the Denali only offers three modes, and Off-Road Mode is only available on 4-wheel drive models.
