Unlike most modern SUVs, the 2017 GMC Yukon is a truck-based vehicle that's capable of towing heavy loads and tackling off-road trails. Those same traits make it less than ideal as a daily driver, however, so shoppers should consider their priorities carefully.
- 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.
- 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.
