Expert Quotes:

Attractive, high-quality materials and tight panel gaps
Edmunds

Lighter, thinner seats that actually add 1.5-inches of second-row passenger knee room
Kelley Blue Book

A third-row seat is available, but can't be folded flat into the floor
ForbesAutos

The 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid is put together very well, and the spacious interior boasts a tremendous amount of usable space. As far as hybrids go, the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid is comfortable and capable in the extreme.

The interior of the GMC Yukon Hybrid 2008 "can seat up to eight passengers," according to Edmunds, thanks to "its standard third row." Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that passenger room in both the front and middle rows is exceptional, and Kelley Blue Book praises the new "lighter, thinner seats" on the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid, which "actually add 1.5-inches of second-row passenger knee room." However, Car and Driver writes that the GMC Yukon Hybrid 2008 has "snug third row seating," and that space is best reserved for children.

The third row is also the source of several reviewer complaints, thanks to its poor design when it comes to cargo space. ForbesAutos says that the third row "can't be folded flat into the floor like seats offered by the competition" and "must be removed manually, which can be quite a chore." That task is magnified by the fact that "the two seats weigh slightly less than a Geo," according to Edmunds reviewers. Other than that gripe, however, the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid offers tremendous cargo space. Edmunds claims that the "maximum cargo capacity is a whopping 109 cubic feet with the folding second row down -- much more than any other hybrid offers."

When it comes to build and materials quality, the GMC Yukon Hybrid 2008 definitely doesn't fit the stereotype that most domestic vehicles suffer from poor construction. Rather, reviewers rave about the quality of the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid. Edmunds writes that the "newest Yukon boasts attractive, high-quality materials and tight panel gaps." ForbesAutos reviewers agree, adding the "GMC Yukon Hybrid's handsome interior includes a two-tone instrument panel" and "chrome trim" that contribute to the upscale materials feel.

One more benefit of the impressive build quality on the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid is the impressive job it does in reducing ambient noise. Edmunds avers that the cabin is "eerie quiet when accelerating and braking," thanks to the fact that the gas engine shuts off and the electrics take over. ForbesAutos also notes that the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid features "a fully boxed frame for stout structural rigidity with reduced noise."

Conclusion

The 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid has a step up on just about all its competitors when it comes to materials quality and cargo space.

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.
