Why? "When it comes to full-size SUVs, it gets no better than GMC's big brawn. With gas prices down again, full-size utilities make sense again. And now GMC offers a hybrid. Perfect. Automotive Rhythms partnered with STRUT to style our Denali even more. I often travel with a cadre of friends or, of course, my family, consisting of three women and their accessories. The Yukon always comes through."
