Drivers comparing the 2021 INFINITI QX80 to the 2021 GMC Yukon should get one thing straight off the bat: the three-row GMC SUV can only compete with the QX80 if you upgrade all the way to the range-topping Yukon Denali trim level. However, even here, the GMC Yukon still can’t match the value, standard features, and advanced safety technologies of the QX80. Our three-row SUV is a superior value, no matter how you look at the data.

QX80 vs. Yukon Denali: Pricing & Value

The 2021 INFINITI QX80 LUXE starts at $69,050 MSRP*, and you can upgrade from RWD to AWD for a total cost of $72,150 MSRP. This makes it just slightly more expensive than the range-topping Yukon Denali, which starts at $68,400 MSRP with RWD or $71,400 MSRP with AWD. 

Is the QX80 worth the higher price? See for yourself! Each of these features is standard in the QX80, but either unavailable or optional, for an added cost, on the Yukon Denali:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Navigation
  • Moonroof
  • Smart RearView Mirror
  • Tinted Glass Moonroof with Auto Open/Close
  • Rear Spoiler
  • Air suspension
  • Automatic transmission with a Manual setting

Did we mention that you’ll have plenty of opportunities to add even more features to your QX80 SUV, if you so desire? That’s the advantage of choosing a genuine luxury SUV over a high-end challenger from a non-luxury brand.

QX80 vs. Yukon Denali: Warranty Coverage

If the standard features listed above aren’t enough to convince you that the QX80 is a better value, take a look at each model’s standard warranty coverage:

  • INFINITI QX80 Basic Warranty – 48 months or 60,000 miles
  • GMC Yukon Denali Basic Warranty – 36 months or 36,000 miles
  • INFINITI QX80 Powertrain Warranty – 72 months or 72,000 miles
  • GMC Yukon Denali Powertrain Warranty – 60 months or 60,000 miles

INFINITI covers you, bumper-to-bumper, for up to 24,000 more miles than GMC! Even the most important components in your vehicle–those that constitute the powertrain–enjoy better protection for a longer period of time.

INFINITI QX80 vs. Yukon Denali: Safety Features

A three-row SUV like the QX80 or the Yukon Denali needs to be a functional family vehicle, and for more and more families near West Des Moines and Ankeny, a family vehicle should include all of the latest safety features and driver-assist technologies. Compared to the QX80, the upper-level Yukon leaves a lot to be desired:

  • Blind Spot Intervention® – This advanced technology works automatically to move you out of the path of oncoming vehicles in your blind spot. While the GMC Yukon includes a blind spot monitor, it won’t move you out of harm’s way.
  • Back-Up Collision Intervention – The QX80 intervenes to prevent collisions when you are moving slowly in reverse. The Yukon Denali doesn’t offer any similar feature.
  • Predictive Forward Collision Warningand Forward Emergency Braking – The INFINITI QX80 offers Forward Emergency Braking that works at all speeds above 3 mph–including highway speeds. As standard, the GMC Yukon Denali can only offer similar protection at speeds below 50 mph.
