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

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 has a rich look and excellent interior space, but it doesn't deliver the driving polish that it should.
Infiniti was fairly early to the three-row luxury crossover game with its JX, which has been continuously updated—and renamed—to become the 2017 QX60. Sharing its underpinnings with the Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60, like its less-luxurious counterpart, offers front- or all-wheel drive and a hybrid variant.

Pros
Elegant styling
Excellent third-row access
Comfortable for a family
Rear Collision Intervention safety system

Cons
Less polished on road than it should be
Infotainment lags rivals
Costly, ineffective hybrid

By:

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 ranks 20 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is the blue light special for luxury midsize 3-row SUVs, delivering a pretty good package for less money than most. It has great safety scores, an inviting list of included and optional amenities, and one of the most agreeable third-row seats you can find. But uninspiring performance and a few other hiccups cut into the QX60’s overall appeal.

Pros
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Adult-friendly third-row seats
Outstanding fuel economy

Cons
Steering feels vague

By: 
usnews.com

For 2017, the QX60 receives a revised engine with more power with no reduction in fuel efficiency. A larger multimedia screen, a hands-free liftgate and automatic high beams are now available.

Pros
Quiet, comfortable cabin makes for a soothing ride
Easy access to third-row seats
Smooth transmission operation adds to luxurious feel
Plush ride quality that makes long trips enjoyable

Cons
Not as sporty as some other large luxury SUVs
Desirable features are all extra and bundled into packages
Off-road capability not part of its formula
Tight third-row legroom for adults
