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




The initial impression given by the GMC Yukon is one of strength and safety. It's big, true--but it also earns some excellent crash-test scores.

A stout SUV, the Yukon has excellent protection for occupants. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it an overall score of four stars. Digging deeper, the Yukon actually gets five-star scores in every crash test, but four stars for the mathematically derived rollover test since it's such a tall vehicle.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety hasn't tested the current Yukon.

Standard safety gear 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. On the options list, there are blind-spot detectors, parking sensors, and a rearview camera--not the wraparound kind being pioneered now by Infiniti and Land Rover, but a higher-res one with a crisp display.

The Yukon's tall stance might be an issue for some shorter drivers as they park or change lanes. However for that there are large side mirrors.

 

Conclusion

Strong crash-test scores underscore the GMC Yukon's safe appearance.

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.
