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

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

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

By:

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Traverse has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 12 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Roomy, versatile seats
Lots of standard tech
Spacious cargo area
Carlike handling and ride quality

Cons
Unexciting driving dynamics
