cool Yukon XL Denali in the Snow

Well, the snow finally arrived today and I was able to try out how the Denali XL handles the white stuff with the new 17" winter tires. And I have to say, I'm impressed! We've been having unusually cold temps the past week or so--tonight it will be -9 C (about 16 F)--and we got about 4-5 inches of snow during the day. It was the first snowfall of the season.



Coming from a Subaru STI that had AWD and no traction control and was super fun :yesnod:...



...I was a little worried that the nanny on the Yukon would be too intrusive. My last SUV had a button to turn off the traction control, but it never really turned off completely--it was a total fun-killer :sad:



I tried the Yukon with and without traction control on and I was very happy. Traction control off meant it was really off and I was able to do a little side drifting around some S-curves as I climbed the mountain back to my house. That brought back fond memories of the STI :gy:.



Now I'm looking forward to getting more snow and finding some empty parking lots .

I wish we had snow here:cryin:

my silverado has no traction control and I can be in 4x4 or 2 wheel. Best of both worlds IMO.

I have to say that doing controlled drifts in AWD is super fun . Temps are dropping to record lows the next couple of days: -12° C (10.4° F) with wind chills in the -16° to -20° C (3.2° F to -4° F) range. And then more snow is forecast for Sunday and Monday :eek2:.

P.S. I love the Yukon's remote start!

You can come up here to Chicago and get all the snow you want. Feel free to take it back to your State...
