2011 GMC Yukon Fuel Economy

5.0
Fuel Economy
The 2011 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL models get better fuel economy, generally, than most other models in this class, with EPA numbers at 15 mpg city, 21 highway for the 5.3-liter engine.

The exception is the 6.2-liter engine that's optional on the XL and included in the Denali. It returns just 14/18.

But the Yukon lineup redeems itself with the Hybrid model. With an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city, 23 highway, the Yukon Hybrid gets nearly 50 percent more miles out of every gallon, compared to most other full-size SUVs, and it has most of their towing ability (5,000 pounds).

The 2011 GMC Yukon Hybrid is one of the greenest large SUVs, while the rest of the Yukon line is a bit more efficient than most in this class.

All standard Yukon models are also E85 (85-percent ethanol) compatible; but when you fuel up with ethanol you'll get an EPA-estimated 11 mpg city, 16 highway.
