    That’s worth a wave, or a thumbs up!
    What the world needs now, is more of a sense of humor.

    Funny, and true!
    I was hoping for some Canadian wildernesses shots.
    I played in Watson Lake, Yukon Territory almost 30 years ago.
    Beautiful!

    GM, for Summer 2020, has strangely made the Yukon almost as large as the Yukon XL. Probably larger than the usual Yukon XL of 15 years ago.

    Why so big? Is it because Law Enforcement (a huge buyer of the earlier form) seems to be liking the Explorer, sedan based police cruiser and buying those, instead. Why let this key component of your previous economic success get away? Yes, I know the Law Dogs buy almost all Chevies, but what difference does that make? Talking model year 2021, btw.

    I saw that - they also changed the design as it was getting dated and sales were down. Same with the Suburban.

    Sales were down because these things are so expensive, last a good long while between purchases, but don't retain value like they once did.

    Remember when a Yukon was a useful sized vehicle, like this?

    The redux should've been smaller, not even larger.

    I know individual vehicles get wrecked, sunburned and the interiors get grunged, but there's nothing "dated" about the soon to be previous body style. That's like saying the '63 Chevy looks more modern than the '62 does. The difference is just.....different.

    Lookadiss:

    Remember when the Toyota Sequoia was a manageable size, up through 2007?

    [​IMG] I see scores of these every day, just absolutely tons of these. What I also see, but not very often, are the larger, 2008 and later version. It is a sound vehicle; it is just too big and too expensive and people, I think, ain't buying them. I was wondering if maybe Toyota had quit production on the Sequoia - but no, it is still available.

    Article I read stated that they were trying to do what Ford did with their redesign of the Expedition (2021 Yukon below is very similar) as they considered that their biggest rival. A lot of people aren't buying these for their 'truck toughness' anymore, they sell a lot to people who need to seat 8 without spending $100K for an Escalade or Navigator. Not too many options there. And for that $ you still get a lot of plastic - as i was forced to find out last month when my 14 yr old Expedition had seen enough.

    Sorry your Ford gave up the ghost after only 14 years. Was it flooded, or wrecked or something?

    In theory at least, those should last much longer. I mean, our cars are 14, 16, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 24 years old. And they're not going anywhere.

    Needed some repairs that were not cost effective - 2005 was a bad year for the Triton engines. Since my other car is a 22 yr old Rodeo, which isn't going anywhere, I thought it was time to have at least one car in the family that had XM :)
