We have 2 kids and plenty of room in
our Yukon to haul them, their stuff and
our stuff as we travel up and down the
coast line from NY to Fl to visit their
grandparents. Also have the ability to
haul as many as 9 occupants, which
comes in handy when the uncles and
aunts come along too.
V. comfortable seating (I'm 6'6" tall)
and nice features inside.
Gas mileage is good for a lg SUV.
Power is excellent (4.8L w/ 275 hp).
V. smooth ride. Better or at least as
good as the mercedes, volves, BMW's,
etc. that I've driven and/or rode in.
Moved up from Ford F150 Super Crew 4x4;
the Yukon seats should be in the living-
room! GMC rides more luxurious. Only
miss the higher torque, but Yukon has
sufficient power (5.3L definately
recommended). Couldn't be happier -
don't know why everyone doesn't drive
one of these SUVs. Interior storage
compartment space is lacking, but
handling more than makes up for this
Seats and comfortable steering wheel;
handling is great
utilize the dead space in the rear over
the wheel wells with storage
compartments - the single, glove-box
size cubby is all there is! What did
GMC hide behind those interior
panels?!? Roll-down lift window would
Strong motor and trans. Interior
plastic parts leave lots to be
desired. Totally plastic dash tends to
rattle. Copmfortable ride. Low road
noise but some air noise around
windows. Runs like and bear. Exterior
styling lends itself well to cosmetic
Looks, handling and durability.
Less rattley plastic parts on the
inside. I have 6 parts from the
interior that have fallen off and I
don't know where they go. They are now
in the glovebox.
Our Yukon is a excellent ride, fun to
drive, easy to park in city traffic and
the on-star communications system on
board is a safe feeling knowing that if
your in a severe accident with air bag
deployment and can not respond, help
will be coming.
G.M.C. may want to consider replacing
the engine cooling fans with electric
fans to assist with better fuel milage.
On-Star Communications System
Better fuel ecomony, possibly by
switching to electric engine fans.
