With two engines and both 2WD and 4WD variants available, the GMC Yukon offers a range of efficiency and capability, though it loses the hybrid version of the previous generation.

The standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine in a 2WD model rates as high as 23 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined, a figure brought down somewhat by its 16 mpg city rating. At the other end of the spectrum, the 4WD Yukon Denali XL with the 6.2-liter V-8 engine rates 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, and 16 mpg combined. The rest of the available variations on the Yukon theme fit between these two bookends. 

Whichever version of the Yukon you choose, you're paying a price at the pump for the passenger, cargo, and towing capacity offered by these substantial full-size SUVs. As many steps as GM has taken to improve the gas mileage of its new V-8 engine, including direct injection and cylinder deactivation, the reality of physics weighs in heavily--and these nearly 6,000-pound vehicles are heavy.

Conclusion

The 2015 GMC Yukon is a full-size SUV with truck-like capabilities, and it's accordingly thirsty at the pump.

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.
