GMC Yukon is an SUV that can seat up to nine (when equipped with a front bench seat on SLE trim levels). It comes standard with a 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine that pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Shoppers in search of maximum passenger space and cargo room should think about stepping up to the bigger Yukon XL, which delivers on both fronts. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are included with the standard 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, and 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) means your family can stay connected on the go. Available advanced safety features include forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights and lane-keeping assist.
If you’re looking for a full-size SUV to tow your family — or a boat or camper — where you need to go, the Yukon can do that job. Downsides include ride quality, handling, cargo room in the regular-length Yukon and a lack of interior differentiation from its Chevrolet siblings. We’d recommend checking out the Expedition, as well, to see which best suits your needs.
