The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 GMC Yukon really stands out among truck-based SUVs because of its great towing and hauling capabilities. Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
