The 2018 GMC Yukon is an old-school SUV updated for the 21st century.

Pros
Muscular engines
Good for towing
Luxurious interior
Chiseled looks
Denali’s ride quality

Cons
Interior not that roomy on regular Yukon
Denali is eye-poppingly expensive
High liftover for cargo loading
Crossovers make more sense for most

There's only one version of the 2018 Lexus ES 300h, but a couple of option packages are worth considering. The Premium package is inexpensive yet adds appealing luxury touches such as a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings and wood trim (a definite upgrade over the standard piano black pieces).

PROS
Efficient hybrid powertrain returns high fuel economy
Luxurious interior with impressive fit and finish
Plenty of rear legroom, even for tall passengers
Lots of standard driver aids, and plenty of optional ones

CONS
Lots of noise while the electric motor recharges the battery
Enform app suite is a poor substitute for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Grabby brakes make it difficult to slow down smoothly
Infotainment system's controller is frustrating to use
