maneuverability around town. Owners of 2-door Yukons sometimes complained of an uncomfortable, choppy ride, 4-door customers seemed satisfied. The steering is over-boosted in traditional GM fashion, making it light during parking situations but hardly sporting at higher speeds, with vagueness at its center position and a rather large 12.6 meter (41.2 foot) turning circle in rear-wheel drive and 13.1 meter (42.9 feet) in four-wheel drive. Model year 1997 remedied the situation, with a tighter turning radius of 11.6 meters (38.1 feet) for rear-wheel drive and 12.4 meters (40.7 feet) four-wheel drive models and the addition of speed-sensitive power steering.

By the way, 1995 model year Yukons featured a standard driver-side airbag, while a standard passenger-side airbag took two more years to arrive. What's more, a redesigned instrument panel was also a '95 addition. The improvement was monumental due to larger and better laid out controls.
