Review of the 2002 GMC Yukon

  • A comfortable and easy-to-drive SUV loaded with premium features.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V8 lineup, roomy cabins, extensive list of standard features.

  • Cons

    Interior fit-and-finish concerns, still too similar to the Chevy Tahoe.

  • What's New for 2002

    GMC's strong-selling Yukon heads into 2002 with few changes. The 5300 V8 is now ultralow emission certified (ULEV) for California. For states with less restrictive emission requirements, the Yukon offers flexible fuel capability with the use of cleaner burning gasoline blends. A more efficient starter, more durable steering gear housing and LATCH child seat attachments anchors round out the Yukon's upgrades for 2002.

Great rig

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Bought my 02 Yukon 6 months ago, and love it. Yes, she's a little thirsty (14/18), but it's like driving a Cadillac on a 4x4 frame (w/ a tighter turning radius!) Fun to drive, safe in a wreck, and the easiest interior configuration I've ever used. As a gig musician, I'm always loading/unloading varying amounts of gear. This rig is so easy to pull seats out, rearrange space, etc.

Excellent value

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Perfect SUV for a family of five, surprisingly MPG's is not as bad as we were expecting...average 16-17 with the 6.0L. Handles great in the Wisconsin winter roads.




Excellent truck

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Bought the Yukon new in Dec. 2001. Drove it for business (mostly highway) to around 180,000 in 2008. Since then my sons have taken the truck to college with them. Now has approx. 215,000. I have always changed the oil between 3-5000 miles. We have only had to do routine maintenance (brakes, belts, tires etc.) The only irritating issue has been the drivers side window motor. Have had to replace this 3 times. Otherwise very, very solid truck. In fact, bought a 2009 Yukon and love it. The key to any car is to keep up with routine maintenance and don't beat it to death. Take care of your car.




Not bad for 125,000 miles

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Call me crazy but I bought a 2002 Denali with 120,000 miles on it. I have had it for two months (5000 miles) and am very pleased. I would have never thought to buy a vehicle with that many miles but the previous owner took exceptional care of this car. The ride is very nice although if the road is bumpy so is the ride. The performance is outstanding. It flat out moves when you give it the gas. My biggest complaint is that the front seat doesn't quite go back far enough. The mileage is at 16 mpg with about 50/50 driving. The car's transmission was rebuilt at 110,000 miles. My mechanic said it was one of the nicest cars he has seen with that high of mileage. Inside and out.

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Bought this truck at an off lease five years ago. Just got back from a 4000 mile road trip with no issues (115,000 miles with just routine maintainance). Nice leather interior, stylish exterior (with 20" rims from 2007 Yukon) plenty of 12v outlets & plenty of power (with the 5.7L you hardly know your trailer is back there). Fuel milage (not great) beats my friends with Lexus G470 and Lincoln Navigator with 16-18 mpg. Before my big road trip, I overhauled the brakes, plugs, belts, filters, hoses etc. Hadn't done the brakes in 60,000 miles and I was amazed to see that the massive rear brakes had about 60% life left on them and the original plugs were almost like new.
