In the full-size SUV segment, we recently tested one example of each type. First we have the 2021 GMC Yukon, which is fully redesigned this year. Then we have the 2021 Nissan Armada, which dates back to 2010 but just received new styling, an overhauled interior, more features, and a revised engine this year.
