You should consider the 2017 GMC Yukon if you're looking for a three-row SUV as capable of hauling up to nine passengers as it is at towing up to 8,000 pounds when properly equipped. Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories. The SUV, based on General Motors' full-sized truck lineup, is impressively capable for an SUV and can double as an upscale people and boat hauler, but it has its downsides.
For starters, its truck underpinnings means it also drives a lot like a full-size truck. It doesn't maneuver all that well in tight areas, like parking lots. The Yukon also sacrifices some comfort in the cabin, especially the seats, which are a bit thin. Crossover SUVs, like the Toyota RAV4 or GMC Acadia are less compromising in comfort.
But the Yukon does boast impressive off-road capability and for 2017 added a host of available driver aids such as low-speed automatic braking and a teen-driver management system. Many of the Yukon's most sought-after driver aids are only available on higher trim levels like the Denali or on vehicles with additional options packages.

Performance: Both engines provide plenty of power, though the upgrade 6.2-liter V8 offers more impressive acceleration compared to the base 5.3-liter. Both offer impressive tow ratings when properly equipped and deliver plenty of utility for most drivers. Despite its brawn, the Yukon is also reasonably quiet during highway drives.
Interior: The cabin is nicely designed, featuring high-quality materials, and reasonably comfortable for the driver and second-row passengers. Visibility is also good thanks to the layout of the front of the cab and the controls are well-designed and thought out.
Utility: The Yukon is capable of both towing large loads and tackling rugged terrain while maintaining a refined interior. If you're looking for a vehicle that can do a little bit of everything, the Yukon is it.
Tech: While the Yukon added many driver aids for 2017, most of them went into an optional Enhanced Driver Alert package that’s only found on more expensive trims and options packages. At least Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are standard features on all trims.
