The 2016 GMC Yukon is a near-luxury, truck-based SUV that offers seating for up to nine passengers while also delivering the capability of a full-sized pickup. Its towing capacity and off-road prowess are standout features, while its interior niceties separate it ever so slightly from its corporate cousin, the Chevrolet Tahoe.
But the Yukon is not without its drawbacks. It drives like a full-size truck, making maneuvering through tight spaces a challenge. The third row folds down flat but cargo space isn’t as generous as competitors like the Toyota Sequoia or Ford Expedition. And while the cabin is more refined than the Tahoe, its ride can't compete with three-row crossovers like the Hyundai Santa Fe. You’ll also experience occasional truck-like shakes and shivers while going over bumps and divots on rough roads.
If you're looking for a three-row SUV that can also haul your boat on the weekends, the Yukon might be worth a look. But if you can do without its towing prowess, the next generation of crossover SUVs may be a better choice.

Max towing capacity
Utility: Properly equipped, the maximum tow rating for the two-wheel-drive Yukon SLE or SLT is an impressive 8,500 pounds.
Performance: The standard 5.3-liter V8 offers plenty of power for most shoppers. Looking for a little more? The Yukon Denali comes with the 6.2-liter V8 which boasts peppier acceleration, though towing capacity is slightly diminished.
Interior: The Yukon is a classy three-row SUV that features high-quality materials throughout the cabin, providing a step up from its corporate cousin, the Chevrolet Tahoe. It's also remarkably quiet while driving on the highway and boasts gauges and controls that are easy to read and use.
Cargo: The trunk's high floor makes storage space limited and loading that cargo into the back of the Yukon is a challenge compared to competitors. Leg room in the third row is cramped and storage space in the back row is limited.
