Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

If you've got a lot to haul, the GMC Yukon range is one of the best ways to do it. But if not, consider a crossover that will use much less fuel and be better to drive.
Its spec sheet may read like an SUV from a different era, but the 2017 GMC Yukon range is a highly-refined passenger, cargo, and trailer-hauler that makes a compelling choice to those who need to carry around more than just the family.

Pros
Refined demeanor
Sauve interior
Denali's Magnetic Ride Control
Automatic emergency braking

Cons
Expensive, especially with options
Third row folds flat but takes up a lot of room
A crossover may make more sense for many

By:

For 2017, the GMC Yukon receives low-speed automatic braking paired with the existing forward collision warning system and a teen-driver management system. Cooled seats have now been replaced with ventilated seats, the rear entertainment system input has been updated, and a head-up display is standard on the Denali trim.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Standard V8 engine delivers ample passing power and a stout tow rating
Clean cabin design is one of the best in the class
Available two-speed transfer case gives the Yukon the ability to tackle difficult off-road terrain.

Cons
High cargo floor height makes loading bulky items difficult
Hard to maneuver in tight spaces
Less cargo room than car-based SUVs of similar size
Maximum passenger capacity is available only in the base model
Engine doesn't respond to gas pedal inputs quickly enough.

The 2017 GMC Yukon ranks 3 out of 6 Large SUVs. The GMC Yukon gets high scores and a high ranking in the small – but fierce – large SUV class. Its strong performance and attractive interior keep it ranked above most other options.

Pros
Decent power
Stellar fuel economy for the class
Premium interior materials
Large cargo hold in XL trim

Cons
Slow-to-shift six-speed transmission
Limited cargo space in non-XL models

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban ranked #4 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Suburban has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Spacious, upscale cabin
Outstanding cargo space

Cons
Lower towing capacity than rivals
Generation earns subpar predicted reliability ratings
Lower safety score than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer. Try that in a crossover.

Pros
Upscale interior
Strong V-8 engine
Superlative towing ability
More fuel efficient than you might think

Cons
High cargo floor
Rides more like a truck than rivals
Expensive at every level
Throwback looks

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Unless you need the Suburban's nine-passenger configuration (which is only available on the base LS model), we recommend going with the midlevel LT trim. It comes with a substantial amount of standard equipment and is a solid pick as is. But we'd suggest getting the Luxury package to add some useful driver safety aids and a power liftgate.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Cargo capacity is generous
Strong V8 engine can tow and haul plenty of cargo

Cons
Maneuvering in tight spaces is challenging
High cargo floor means more effort to load objects
Lazy gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
