KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 10/21/2013

The GMC Yukon is a full-size, 3-row SUV that is the sibling to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. 2014 marks the last model-year for the current version ahead of the completely revamped 2015 Yukon. Because of this, the 2014 lineup will have a shorter production run. Though an all-new model is in the works, the current GMC Yukon still offers a lot of vehicle for the money. With seating for up to nine, an extended-length version available and 4-wheel drive (4WD) also an option, the Yukon and the larger Yukon XL hold their own against rivals such as the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada. When dressed in premium Denali form, the Yukon can even give a Cadillac Escalade a run for its money.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you regularly need to carry eight or nine passengers and their gear, plus require V8 power to tow up to 8,500 pounds, the 2014 GMC Yukon could be your family hauler of choice.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you don't need the ability to tow big loads or the off-road capability that comes with truck-based SUVs like the Yukon, look to a crossover SUV such as the GMC Acadia, Nissan Pathfinder or Honda Pilot. They have better fuel efficiency, are more comfortable and are easier to maneuver.

What's New for 2014

With the all-new 2015 GMC Yukon around the corner, the 2014 model carries over virtually unchanged except for a new exterior paint color – Deep Indigo Metallic. The slow-selling hybrid version has officially gotten the ax, and the 2500 3/4-ton model has also exited the lineup.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Though their size can make these vehicles unwieldy in tight spots, the GMC Yukon is civilized once on the road. The pair of V8 engines available for 2014 offer decent-to-good passing power, and shifts are smooth via the standard 6-speed automatic transmission. The Yukon's ride in general is surprisingly compliant, even more so for models equipped with the Autoride suspension system that quickly adjusts to put a check on body motion. Given the size of their bodies and engines, it should come as no surprise that the 2014 Yukon isn't exactly a fuel miser. On the high end, models with the 5.3-liter V8 and 2-wheel drive (2WD) earn a combined 17 mpg, while the 4WD Yukon XL Denali with the larger 6.2-liter V8 is rated at 14 mpg. If you plan to park a Yukon XL in your garage, measure first to make sure it can accommodate an SUV that's over 18.5 feet long.

Favorite Features

With the proliferation of smaller cars on the road, drivers of big vehicles such as the Yukon can only benefit from extra safety features. This one – standard on Denali and optional on SLT models – uses radar beams to keep high-tech eyes focused on the spots that yours may miss.

Finding the right fit behind the wheel is important in any car, and even more so in one as large as the Yukon SUV. This standard feature helps people of all shapes and sizes obtain a comfortable driving position.
