Which Cars Are Tested

Yukon DenaliManufacturers do not test every new vehicle offered for sale. They are only required to test one representative vehicle—typically a preproduction prototype—for each combination of loaded vehicle weight class, transmission class, and basic engine.

Some vehicles are exempt from these requirements:

  • Motorcycles

  • Large vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 8,500 pounds, such as larger pickup trucks and SUVs (GVWR is the weight of the vehicle, all fluids, and its maximum carrying capacity)
