SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Four stars Overall; five stars frontal offset; five stars side impact
Not yet rated.
GM added a front middle airbag as well, a feature no other carmaker has adopted.
The 2015 Yukon doesn't scrimp on safety equipment, leveraging some of GM's latest high-tech to improve driver awareness as well as accident avoidance.
The 2015 GMC Yukon hasn't been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS); and it likely won't be, as that agency doesn't usually test the largest body-on-frame SUVs. But crash-test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are out, and the Yukon earns excellent five-star ratings for frontal and side impact, with a four-star Overall Score because of the three-star rollover score (a matter of geometry and a high center of mass common to most SUVs).
Standard safety gear includes a rearview camera and StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation. A head-up display is also available, relaying key information into the driver's line of sight, thereby reducing distraction.
Some of the available safety features found on the 2015 GMC Yukon include: vibrating driver's seat to alert the driver of the location of certain crash threats; adaptive cruise control with automatic braking; and sensors that detect crash threats from all sides of the vehicle, alerting the driver.
The 2015 GMC Yukon offers new high-tech safety gear and a segment-exclusive front-center air bag.
