The 2017 GMC Yukon is a full-size SUV that offers high towing capacity and can carry a total of nine people inside. This SUV packs in a premium and grand interior, and also brings some off-road characteristics to the table. The Yukon gets a powerful 5.3L V8 engine that pumps out as much as 355 hp and is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Yukon is priced at $48,530 for the base trim and comes in three trim levels. Even with all this on offer, this SUV is not the best choice as it stands pretty low in terms of reliability ratings against its rivals.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2017 GMC Yukon is a great family hauler. It's most suited for large families as a daily driver and also for weekend getaways thanks to its high towing and carrying capacity. The Yukon offers a very fuel-efficient V8 engine as standard, and this gives it a long-range as well. The Yukon is very well-known for its high luxury interiors and offers one of the best cabin experiences in this segment.

2017 GMC Yukon

The Yukon received a 5-star rating from the NHTSA. It also gets some advanced driver assistance features. The Yukon however, has been plagued by its low-reliability ratings where the competition performs much better. The main rivals for the 2017 GMC Yukon are the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe, the 2017 Nissan Armada, and the 2017 Toyota Sequoia.


The 2017 GMC Yukon comes in three trim levels, namely the SEL, SLT, and the top Denali trim. All the trims come with either a rear-wheel-drive setup or a four-wheel-drive setup. Pricing for the trims starts at $48,530 and goes up to $68,965 for the top trim. The 4WD versions demand a premium of around $3,000 over the RWD version. Standard features on all the trims include alloy wheels, heated mirrors, foglights, roof rails, trailer hitch receiver on the outside; and front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, remote keyless entry and ignition on the inside. The SLE trim also comes with an optional front bench seat that increases overall capacity to 9. The Denali trim gets second-row bucket seats as standard and comes with a 7-seating capacity. 

Trim SLE SLT Denali
MSRP $48,530 $57,315 $65,965
MSRP (4WD) $51,530 $60,315 $68,965
Key Features Audio And Cruise Controls On Steering Wheel Adds/Replaces features on the SLE trim Adds/Replaces features on the SLT trim
  60/40 split-folding second and third row Keyless Ignition Adaptive Cruise Control
  Overhead Console With Storage Turn Signal In Mirrors Rear Seat Blu-Ray/DVD Entertainment System

  Leather Steering Wheel Tilt And Telescopic Steering Wheel Reclining Rear Seats
  Tilt-Adjustable Steering Wheel Adjustable Pedals Folding Rear Seatback
  Three Zone Climate Control Heated Steering Wheel  

The Yukon SLE also gets the optional Enhanced Driver Alert package that adds some safety features. The SLE and SLT trim also have the HD Trailering package and also get a few standalone features as optional items.

We Recommend

The 2017 GMC Yukon's SLT trim with the 4-wheel-drive is the trim that we recommend. It is pretty costly at $60,000, but it's worth the investment. The SLT gets the job done with its 5.3L V8 engine and offers great performance and a decent fuel economy as well. Over the SLE trim, it is much better equipped and comes standard with safety features that are optional on the SLE trim.

Engine and Performance

"Exceptionally well-controlled for a body-on-frame SUV, the Yukon range masks its girth surpringly well."- TheCarConnection

2017 GMC Yukon Engine & Transmission

The 2017 GMC Yukon comes with two engine choices. The Yukon SLE and SLT trims get the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, that produces 355 hp @ 5600 rpm and 383 lb-ft @ 4100 rpm. The 6.2L V8 engine, exclusive on the Denali trim produces a heavy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, for the same rpm levels. The 5.3L engine comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox whereas the 6.2L engine gets a better eight-speed transmission. All Yukons come with RWD as standard and 4WD is available as an optional extra, which will cost around $3,000 more.

2017 GMC Yukon engine

The 6-speed automatic transmission is sluggish and late at quick changes. It could use some fine-tuning to better match the engine's rpm levels and a better gear ratio as well for quicker acceleration and a stronger mid-range. The eight-speed transmission is a delight to use and is perfectly matched with the powerful 6.2L engine on the Denali. It's quick at shifts and precise as well.

Torque 383 lb-ft @ 4100 rpm 394 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm 383 lb-ft @ 4100 rpm 401 lb-ft @ 3600 rpm

The Yukon is the most expensive car in the lot at $48,530. All the cars have a 6-speed transmission except the Armada which gets a 7-speed automatic. All four cars come with RWD as standard, with 4WD as an optional extra. The Armada and the Sequoia make the most power at 390 hp and 381 hp respectively. Also, the torque on the Sequoia is available early in the rpm as compared to the Yukon. The Tahoe and the Yukon share the same engine and hence have the same output figures.

2017 GMC Yukon Acceleration

For a car that weighs over 5000 lbs, the GMC Yukon is pretty quick with its 5.3L V8 engine. It has a 0-60 mph time of 7.5 seconds, with the quarter-mile coming up in 15.7 seconds. The Denali trim's 6.2L V8 reduces that 0-60 mph time down to 6.5 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 13.1 seconds, two seconds over the standard trim. The top speed of the Yukon is rated at 160 mph.

Even though the SLE and SLT trim function well enough for everyday use, premium buyers will surely appreciate the quick acceleration and a smoother gearbox on the Denali trim.

Models 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 Nissan Armada 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 Toyota Sequoia
0-60 MPH 7.5 sec 6.5 sec 7.0 sec 6.7 sec
Quarter mile 15.7 sec 15.1 sec 15.3 sec 15.4 sec
Top speed (mph) 160 165 155 165
Engine 5.3L 5.6L 5.3L 5.7L

The Yukon is the slowest of the lot thanks to the slow 6-speed transmission. The Armada has the best 0-60 mph time of 6.5 seconds, thanks to its 7-speed transmission that is precise and shifts are on the mark. The Sequoia also has a quick 0-60 mph time of 6.7 seconds, which despite the heavyweight is due to the early torque availability that helps it get off the line quickly. The Tahoe takes 7 seconds for the 0-60 mph mark.

2017 GMC Yukon Ride and Handling

The body-on-frame chassis with the multilink suspension setup help the 2017 Yukon deliver a very composed and smooth ride over hard undulations and imperfections. This combined with the capable V8 engine makes the Yukon's driving progressive, but restricted at the same time due to the slow transmission. Over smaller road bumps and potholes, the shakes are felt in the cabin.

The 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 feels less luxury-SUV type on the road also due to the chassis type and the coil-over-shock suspension setup. The steering is well-tuned, and quite responsive as well. There's minute body roll in curves but nothing that sets the car off balance. Also, the cabin is relatively quiet as well when cruising at higher speeds.

2017 GMC Yukon Braking

The 2017 GMC Yukon is a heavy car, and gets a power full set of brakes to get it to a complete halt from any speed. The car gets a 13-inch front disc brake and a 13.6-inch rear disc brake. There is no data on the 60-0 mph braking distance taken by the Yukon, but it takes 192 feet to stop from 70-0 mph. 

Model 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 Nissan Armada 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 Toyota Sequoia
Brake Front (in.) 13.0 13.8 N/A 13.9
Brake Rear (in.) 13.6 13.8 N/A 13.6
Curb Weight (lbs.) 5379 5576 5356 5730
60-0 mph (ft.) N/A 128 125 130

The Tahoe is the earliest to stop thanks to its low curb weight of 5356 lbs, compared to the competition. The Nissan Armada takes 128 feet to stop, whereas the Toyota Sequoia takes 5 feet more at 130 feet despite having bigger brakes.

2017 GMC Yukon Towing Capacity

The 2017 GMC Yukon with the standard setup can tow a maximum of 8, 500 lbs. The maximum towing capacity is lower on the 6.2L engine, at 8,400 lbs. The Yukon has a maximum payload capacity of 1690 lbs.

Model 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 Nissan Armada 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 Toyota Sequoia
Towing Capacity (lbs.) 8500 8500 8600 7400

The Chevrolet Tahoe has the most towing capacity, at 8,600 lbs. The Armada has the same towing capacity as the Yukon. The Toyota however offers the least at 7,400 lbs.

Fuel Economy

The 2017 GMC Yukon has excellent fuel efficiency when compared with other cars of this class. The 5.3L V8 powered RWD Yukon returns 16 mpg in the city, 23 on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. With the 4WD setup, this efficiency drops slightly to 16 mpg in the city, 22 on the highway, and 18 mpg combined. The 6.2L V8 with the RWD setup returns 15 mpg in the city, 22 on the highway, and 17 mpg combined. Its drops down to 15 mpg in the city, 20 on the highway, and 17 mpg combined with the 4WD setup.

2017 GMC Yukon black color

The GMC Yukon gets a 26-gallon tank. This gives the Yukon a combined range of 494 miles with the 5.3L engine and the RWD setup.

Range (city/highway) (miles) 416/598 392/532 416/598 343.2/448.8

The Yukon and the Tahoe share the same mileage figures and the same range and tank capacity as well. The Yukon offers a massive 600 miles highway range! The reason behind this top efficiency on the Yukon is the cylinder deactivation technology that shuts down half of the cylinders under low-load conditions. The Armada offers the next best mileage at 16 mpg combined, whereas the Toyota offers a mileage of 15 mpg combined. In terms of range, the range on the Yukon stands at 416 city miles and 598 highway miles.


"Luxurious even in the base form, the Yukon is comfortable- but its second and third rows aren't as roomy as some crossovers." - TheCarConnection

2017 GMC Yukon Seating and Comfort

The 2017 GMC Yukon interior is a combination of all the right things that are a must on a full-size SUV. Right from cabin ambiance to materials used to the seating, there's no room for complaint. The materials used are above standard and the fit and finish levels are top-notch. Soft-touch materials are seen on most surfaces, apart from some areas finished in leather wrapping. The front dash and its layout resemble a car-like arrangement in terms of controls, knobs, and buttons. There has been a lot of attention towards making this cabin a quiet place to be in and that is evident from the thick doors with seals and also the noise cancellation aid on the Bose system. This has been a major improvement over last year, as earlier Yukon's did not pack a quiet cabin.

2017 GMC Yukon interiors

The visibility offered through the cabin is excellent, and the doors open wide allowing for easy ingress and egress. In terms of seating comfort, the 2017 GMC Yukon has spacious and roomy seating. The front row seats have great legroom and headroom, and taller passengers won't have a problem getting in and out. In the second row, the space is adequate and the seats are well-cushioned. They have adjustability, but the range is limited by the folding mechanisms. The rear seats are thin-cushioned, and there's not enough space overall. Even the legroom is limited due to the tall floor.

Model 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 Nissan Armada 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 Toyota Sequoia
Passenger capacity 8 8 8 8
Front (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (In.) 42.8/64.8/45.3 40.9/63.8/41.9 42.8/64.8/45.3 34.8/66.4/42.5

In the front row, the Tahoe and the Yukon offer the most legroom and headroom at 45.3 inches and 42.8 inches respectively. The Yukon and the Tahoe compromise on the third-row seating and the cargo space to provide a spacious front and second row. In the second row, the Sequoia has the most legroom at 40.9 inches. The Sequoia also offers the most legroom in the third row as well. The success behind this balanced legroom in the Sequoia is the long wheelbase of the car. All cars can seat 8 passengers. Interior features on the Yukon are:

  • Cruise Control
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Leather upholstery
  • Keyless entry and ignition
  • Heated and power-adjustable steering wheel
  • 12-way power driver and front seat

2017 GMC Yukon Infotainment System

The infotainment system on the 2017 Yukon is easy to use and straightforward. However, this system lacks consistency, as the touch responses are laggy sometimes. All trims get an IntelliLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen. Even on the base trim, this system is highly functional and gets OnStar emergency telematics, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, Wi-Fi hotspot, navigation, satellite radio, HD radio, auxiliary input, USB input, CD player, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 9-speaker Bose audio system. The car also gets five USB ports and a 110-volt household-style power outlet.

Some other features on the car include:

  • Wireless charging pad
  • Heads-up display
  • Active noise cancellation
  • A ten-speaker surround-sound system 
  • Navigation with real-time traffic
  • Rear-seat DVD entertainment system (opt)

2017 GMC Yukon Cargo Capacity

The 2017 GMC Yukon packs in one of the least cargo spaces available on cars of this segment. The standard space stands at 15.3 cu-ft, with the maximum cargo capacity at 94.7 cu-ft. This low cargo space however provides a better front row space and a better second-row space.

2017 GMC Yukon cargo capacity

With the second row folded down, the Yukon offers a cargo capacity of 51.7 cu-ft.

Model 2017 GMC Yukon 2017 Nissan Armada 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe 2017 Toyota Sequoia

Second row Cargo Volume (ft.3) 51.7 49.6 51.7 66.6
Maximum Cargo Volume (ft.3) 94.7 95.1 94.7 120.1

The Toyota Sequoia offers the most standard space at 18.9 cu-ft, due to its long wheelbase. The Chevy provides as much as the Yukon. The Nissan offers a slightly better space, but it's only 1 cu-ft more. The Toyota has the most maximum cargo capacity as well, at 120.1 cu-ft. 


"Clean. boxy proportions make the Yukon an especially stylish SUV."-TheCarConnection

2017 GMC Yukon Dimension and Weight

The 2017 GMC Yukon carries over without any changes to its exterior design. The most prominent feature about the Yukon's exterior is its truck-like appearance and the boxy body language. The four corners of this car are squared-off but with a curve. Upfront, the Yukon gets a segmented grille, finished with a chrome surround that sits neatly in between the rectangular pulled-back headlamps. The bumper is body-colored and features fog lamps with chrome accents all-around. A look at the side profile shows the tall and flat roofline that cuts down straight in the rear. the deep wheel arches give this car a commanding presence on the road.

2017 GMC Yukon angle view (front)

The rear of the Yukon is simple and has no flair. It houses the vertical LED taillights and the GMC brand lettering in the center. On the Denali trim, the grille gets a meshed treatment, and the overall body has more chrome on it, along the sides, on the door handles, and with the chrome-finished wheel rims. In terms of body design, the Yukon and the Sierra seem to share a few ideas. However, this design has now started to get a little old and a redesign is needed soon.

Track width (in) F/R N/A 67.5/67.9 N/A 67.9/69.1

In terms of dimensions, the Yukon is a compact truck when compared with its rivals. It has the least length of all, at 203.9 inches, and also a tight wheelbase of 116 inches. The curb weight stands at 5379 lbs, making this a lighter car than some rivals. It's worth noting that the Yukon shares most of its dimensions with the Chevy Tahoe. The Nissan Armada is the heaviest car and also has the most length. On the Sequoia, we see the longest wheelbase of 122 inches. The Armada and the Sequoia are both benefited from their high ground clearance that will help overcome even some tough off-road tracks.

2017 GMC Yukon angle view (rear)

Some exterior features on the Yukon are:

  • LED DRLs
  • Foglamps
  • Automatic wipers
  • Roof rails
  • Power-folding mirrors
  • Hands-free liftgate

The 2017 GMC Yukon scored an overall rating of 5-stars from the NHTSA, but got a mediocre 3-star rating in the rollover test due to its high center of gravity. The IIHS has not yet rated the 2017 GMC Yukon, and we'll update this space once the ratings are out. The Yukon gets six airbags, a rearview camera, traction control, and stability control are some of the standard features available. There are also Safety packages that offer additional driver assistance systems. Some safety features for the Yukon include:

  • Rear cross-traffic alert system
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • OnStar Emergency telematics
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System

2017 GMC Yukon vs 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe

The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe is very similar to the Yukon. At the core, both get the same 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine and the 6-speed automatic transmission. Both these cars have the same fuel economy, the same interior, and exterior dimensions, and a very similar list of features as well. The Tahoe is better in terms of performance and that's thanks to its lower weight.

2017 Chevrolet Tahoe

The Tahoe is priced at $47,215, which makes it around $1,000 more affordable than the Yukon. What the Tahoe lacks in, however, is the Yukon Denali's offerings which are on the next level of trim features and offerings. The Yukon packs in a much interior as well. However, the Tahoe gets a better reliability rating.

2017 GMC Yukon vs 2017 Nissan Armada

It's important to know that the Armada is not a new car at all. It was sold as the Infiniti QX80 earlier and comes into the Nissan line-up mostly unchanged. However, the Armada's design makes it more upscale than it was and it now sits more aggressively against its rivals. The Armada is priced at $44,900, which makes it much more affordable than the Yukon. It is much quicker than the Yukon as well in the performance runs. Both the cars flaunt a commendable engine-gearbox combination.

2017 Nissan Armada

The Armada offers a better ride quality thanks to its refined suspension and also has a very plush interior on offer. However, it does have a lower fuel economy where the Yukon benefits. In terms of reliability, however, the Armada is better overall than the Yukon. All in all, these two cars are the most fierce competitors of each other.

2017 GMC Yukon vs 2017 Toyota Sequoia

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia boasts top-notch quality and very high reliability which the Yukon can never match. The Sequoia however needs a long overdue update. It packs in a more powerful V6 compared to the Yukon's and is better in terms of outright performance as well. In terms of fuel economy, the Sequoia offers a terrible economy which is sure to give you a lot more stops at the gas station.

2017 Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota however, cannot tow as much as the Yukon can, and lags by around 1,000 lbs. The Sequoia is also the heaviest car in this comparison, and this weight is reflected in the braking power it has to offer. In terms of interior and exterior design, the Yukon is the preferred car.

Final Verdict

The 2017 GMC Yukon delivers a stellar interior with very practical and usable features, while maintaining the luxury standards in and out. This truck offers consistent performance with either of its V8 engines but disappoints with the 6-speed transmission. The car has very composed and quiet ride quality and also has one of the highest tow ratings as well. The fuel-economy returned by the car is the best in its class, and the 26-gallon tank gives a superb highway range. What the car lacks, is the reliability and quality standards that are lower than what the other cars in this segment have to offer. If one looks beyond this point, with the safety features, and the other things mentioned above the Yukon makes for a very well-equipped full-size SUV to buy.
