GM’s full-size SUV duo has done a lot of growing up together since they took over from the Jimmy/Blazer siblings roughly two decades ago. The Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon started out as two door SUVs looking almost identical except for the horizontal line that cut through Chevrolet’s grill. Starting in 2006 the twins developed different tastes as the third generation Tahoe and Yukon adorned different front fascias. Although the rear ends looked alike it would be the last generation to have a prominent similarity.

What started out as badge engineering has transformed into two distinct SUVs with the silhouette being the only similarity that they share. The fourth generation Tahoe and Yukon were introduced as 2015 models, all grown up and ready to take on the likes of Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada, and Toyota Sequoia. Since the full-size SUV market isn’t very competitive both brands must have a loyal following, and GM is fully aware considering the new generations aren’t easily recognizable as the twins of old.
