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.

Pros
Excellent Style,
Cavernous interior,
loads of tech.

Cons
Intrusive adaptive cruise,
no upgraded engine option.
