The 2014 GMC Yukon can haul your family, friends and just about all their stuff, too. The luxury-lite truck-based SUV, known for its capability, received some minor updates in the final year before getting a major overhaul in 2015. That left the Yukon feeling a bit dated for the 2014 model year, while remaining a star at its core goals: Hauling all your friends, all of their gear and doing some towing, too.
The Yukon is sandwiched between its corporate cousins, the Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade, splitting the difference between economy and luxury SUV. Its interior reflects that, bearing quality cabin furnishings and an upscale vibe compared to the Tahoe while not quite reaching the luxury of the Escalade.
If people-hauling is your primary interest, a crossover like the contemporary Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse or Ford Explorer might be the better choice. While the Yukon can be had with seating for nine, its cargo volume falls short of many car-based competitors. But if towing is a must, it's worth checking out the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia, a pair of truck-based SUVs that also offer slightly more cargo space.

Max towing capacity
Utility: The Yukon can, when properly equipped, tow more than 8,000 pounds and haul up to nine passengers.
Driving: The Yukon is a calm, comfortable interstate hauler. Highway noise is limited, which makes hauling all those passengers, all that gear and whatever you're towing much more comfortable.
Interior: High quality materials can be found throughout the interior and the gauges are easy to read. The seats are supportive and comfortable, and leg room in the second row is ample for most adults.
Cargo: This is an area where the Yukon falls short. The third row seats must be removed from the vehicle completely and cannot be folded into the floor, which has become standard in many competitor vehicles. That, in addition to a short third row, makes the Yukon a less forgiving vehicle for stowing your stuff.
