The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 GMC Yukon–in Hybrid Denali form especially–makes a strong argument that there's still very much a place in today's market for big, capable, and supremely comfortable body-on-frame SUVs. The 2012 Cadillac Escalade models still rank among the most luxurious, spacious vehicles at any price—especially if towing capability matters.
