What You Will Like

The GMC Yukon exists primarily as a people carrier, albeit a much more rugged one than any of the minivans that clutter the roads. With three rows of seating, powerful engines and a truck-based chassis with good ground clearance, the Yukon excels at taking anyone anywhere. Its secondary mission is one of luxury, the Yukon can be outfitted with enough options to do a credible impersonation of a limousine if need be. Everything from sumptuous leather to state of the art rear-seat entertainment systems can be had on the GMC Yukon. Prices start at around $48,000.

Introduction

The GMC Yukon is a big seven-seat SUV with V8 power, essentially the GMC version of the Chevy Tahoe though with some significant differences in equipment.

The GMC Yukon XL is the Suburban-size version, with a wheelbase of 130 inches, giving more legroom in the third row and cargo space behind it.

Built on truck chassis, these vehicles are among the few full-sized SUVs built body-on-frame, as opposed to being a unibody crossover with a car chassis. So the Yukon, like the land it was named for, is all about ruggedness, towing capability and hauling ability.

The standard Yukon engine is the 5.3-liter V8 making 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, with a 6-speed automatic; but GMC also offers a 6.2-liter V8 making 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

So if you want the most towing capability, Yukon is the way to go. It’s rated at 8500 pounds, although that’s still not as much as the Ford Expedition’s 9200 pounds, on the back of is twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s also less than the Nissan Armada’s 8200-9000 pounds, but more than the Toyota Sequoia or Dodge Durango.

Both Yukon engines are direct injected, which improves response and efficiency with precise fuel metering; and both use cylinder deactivation, which cuts the engine down to a V4 when the throttle is reduced. It’s indicated on the instrument panel, but the driver never feels the transition. Fuel mileage with the 5.3-liter is EPA-rated at 16 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined.

The ladder-type boxed frame uses mostly high-strength steel, for safety and rigidity. The rear suspension is old school, with a live axle and leaf springs, delivering a very good ride. But Magnetic Ride Control is available, the high-tech active suspension that basically absorbs bumps that the solid axle just deflects. A locking rear differential is standard.

Because the Yukon was redesigned for 2015, there’s nothing new for the 2016 model year, except a capless fuel filler. However, there are enhancements to packages, such as the addition of Apple Car Play to the infotainment system.

Safety equipment standard on all models are a rearview camera and proximity sensors in front and rear, and with models having a bench seat in front, there’s an additional airbag that separates the two passengers. Optional safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic warning, and forward collision alert.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive available. Yukon 4WD models use a single-speed Autotrac system for automatic operation on the highway. If you want 4WD with a low-range for rock crawling or slimy boat ramps, you have to get the HD tow package two-speed transfer case. Denali 4WD comes with it.

Lineup

GMC Yukon models are built on a 116-inch wheelbase, XL models have a 130-inch wheelbase. Denali versions are more luxurious and come with the 6.2-liter V8 and 8-speed automatic.

Available features include Bose audio, keyless entry, pushbutton start, an 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen interface, head-up display, power tailgate, cargo-management system, five USB ports, Blu-Ray DVD entertainment, and 22-inch alloy wheels.

Walkaround

This latest-generation Yukon abandoned the boring slab sides of the pre-2015 models for square corners and a masculine presence. Edges, angles, and character lines on its sheetmetal give it a sharp and tailored look. Aerodynamics played a strong role in its design.

As with the Chevrolet Sierra pickup upon which it is based, the doors are triple-sealed, set into the body.

The Denali has its own distinctive grille, and high-intensity discharge headlamps. Other models have projector-beam headlamps.

Interior

The GMC Yukon feels more like a sedan than a truck inside. Way bigger, of course, especially the center stack with its large dials. It’s taken over by the IntelliLink infotainment screen, with its big icons for various functions. The center console is big and deep enough for a tablet or notebook computer. So on second thought, the Yukon feels more like a modern semi-truck than a sedan, inside, and outside, with available retractable steps to climb up to the tall cabin.

But then you feel the cabin’s soft-touch materials. And the Denali, downright luxurious, with its ambient lighting, Bose surround sound audio system, and Blu-Ray entertainment in the rear seat.

The second and third rows fold flat, with available power to create vast cargo space with one touch of the finger. There’s plentiful legroom in the second row, and even the third row of the XL, although headroom is still tight back there. If it’s the 116-inch wheelbase model, don’t expect decent legroom in the third row but it still works for occasional use, so if that’s all you need for passengers, the shorter wheelbase would probably be a better choice.

The Yukon doesn’t sound like a truck inside, either. It’s remarkably quiet. Those triple-sealed doors silence most of the road noise, and windshield and front window glass is treated to cancel noise. Most of the sound comes from the exhaust pipe, and it isn’t intrusive, it only makes it evident how well the engine compartment is insulated.

The forward visibility is quite good, thanks to fairly slim windshield pillars and angular bodywork on the hood and fenders. The side pillars are substantial, blocking the tapered rear flanks in the rearview mirror. The standard sideview mirrors aren’t wide enough to see what you’re towing if it’s tall and wide. Fortunately a rearview camera and proximity sensors front and rear are standard.

The optional head-up display projects speed, rpm, turn signals, warnings, navigation instructions on the windshield ahead of the driver, but, like all of them in our experience, it’s not readable on sunny days with sunglasses.

Driving Impressions

The Yukon is as easy and pleasant to drive as a car, as long as you pay attention to the corners that are way out there. Despite its size, the Yukon turns tight, better than many sedans, so there’s no reason to be daunted by malls, at least not with the short-wheelbase versions. The XLs are less wieldy when pulling into a parking space.

The handling is secure and stable, with electric rack-and-pinion steering. The power assist is consistent during slow-speed maneuvering.

The ride is more comfortable with the standard 18-inch wheels than with the optional 20-inch wheels, partly because the bigger wheels use tires that have less of a sidewall height to absorb bumps. The available Magnetic Ride Control feels like magic to us, and makes all the problems go away. The shock absorbers continuously adjust in milliseconds to the road surface. On washboard surfaces the system is a blessing.

The 5.3-liter V8 delivers plenty of smooth power, the 6.2-liter even more so. Both develop peak horsepower at more than 4000 rpm, and they cruise at less than half that speed even at freeway speed. To get a downshift for instant acceleration, you hammer the throttle.

The 6-speed automatic does a good job of selecting gears. Its manual mode rev-matches the downshifts, and that’s cool, and welcomed. The mode is managed by a switch on the column shift lever.

The Denali’s 8-speed automatic has quicker and smoother shifts with smaller surges because the engine speed doesn’t change as much, that’s one of the reasons for more transmission speeds. The added gears also allow easier engine braking on long grades.

Towing is the best reason for buying a GMC Yukon. Even if you don’t use your Yukon for towing, you might want the towing package because the way it programs the transmission is sharper around town. Same with the optional brake controller for trailers with electric brakes: it’s needed if you tow, but even if you don’t, it helps the resale value.

Summary

With its attractive fresh styling and modern features, big V8 engines and smooth automatic transmissions, decent fuel mileage for the size, towing and cargo capability, offroad potential, and last but not least room for seven passengers, the Yukon is a compelling choice if those are your needs.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
