The GMC Yukon Denali evolves a bit for the 2018 model year. The two big changes are a new 10-speed automatic transmission and a new grill.

 

GMC says that the new Hydra-Matic 10-speed transmission has a wider 7.39 overall gear ratio spread. When paired with Yukon Denali’s 6.2L V-8 engine it- "Enhances refinement with world-class shift smoothness, responsiveness, and quietness." We checked the EPA's website to see if the fuel economy changed for 2018, but it has not yet been listed.

 

The grill is sculpted and "multidimensional" in GMC's lingo. “The new grille, which is flanked by HID headlamps and LED Signature Lighting, advances the design legacy established with the very first Yukon Denali in 1999,” said Matt Noone, director, Global GMC Exterior Design. “It’s a more exciting and sophisticated design, while remaining instantly recognizable as part of the GMC Denali family.” The grill also increases airflow to the radiator, which is never a bad thing.

 

One additional design element for 2018 is the addition of Mastique Ash real wood trim.

      So, I'm lost. My truck will want to turn right all the time, you have to hold it on the road. Highway, low speed, doesn't matter. I've replaced the upper ball joints, upper control arm bushings, Pitman arm, idler arm, steering box, calipers, pads, rotors, steering stabilizer and front shocks. Checked the lower ball joints and wheel bearings but they are free and have no play. Had it aligned twice by Merchants. The guy was cool, he brought me in and showed me the machine and worked with me. He let me drive it after everything was done and we tried again but he was even lost and apologized. On the machine it was perfect. On the road not so much. I bought new Cooper Discover A/T's and some Dick Cepeks recently but nothing changed after the upgrade. Went with a bigger tire but the issue persisted after the change. 

      So the only things I haven't changed are the lower ball joints, inner / outer tie rods, wheel bearings, and ????. I even went as far as to park my truck on flat ground and measured the height of the front fenders and re-adjusted the torsion bars to match everything up hoping for some improvement. 

      Its very squirrelly at highway speed. The larger tires seemed to have amplified the issue. Wanders fairly badly now.

      any help will be much appreciated
