Expert Quotes:

Not yet rated
IIHS

Four stars overall, five stars frontal, five stars side
NHTSA




The 2011 GMC Yukon is a big, stout vehicle, and it lives up to its initial impressions of security with excellent occupant protection and a good set of safety equipment.

Safety equipment on all Yukon models includes dual front, side, and curtain airbags that cover all rows of seats; traction and stability control; OnStar; and tire pressure monitors.

And while the Yukon hasn't yet been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the federal government has given it top five star scores in both frontal and side impact in its new, more stringent test program—with an overall score of four only because it's such a tall vehicle and thus more rollover-prone. In the new NHTSA side pole test, which isn't yet figured into the overall score, the Yukon also gets a top five-star score.

The Yukon's tall stance, though, might be an issue for some shorter drivers as they park or change lanes. However for that there are large side side mirrors, as well as an available blind-spot warning system, parking sensors, and a rearview camera system.

Conclusion

Excellent crash-test results confirm the Yukon's reputation for safety.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
