2009 GMC Yukon Hybrid vs. Its Competition

2009 GMC Yukon Hybrid

The Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango Hybrid use the same Hybrid technology as the GMC Yukon, but their platform is much older than the 2009 GMC Yukon's.

If you are comparing hybrids, check out the offerings from Toyota/Lexus: the Highlander and RX400h hybrid models.

These are both comfortable and efficient crossovers, but if you need room, towing, and four-wheel-drive capabilities, go with the 2009 Yukon Hybrid.

If you don’t care how you get better mileage, consider the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel.

It features a Mercedes-Benz-sourced V-6 turbodiesel that gets 17/22 mpg city/highway, with real-world highway fuel economy that's even better.

But it only seats five, so if you need to carry a brood, the GMC Yukon Hybrid is a better choice.

Quick Specs

There are few compelling reasons to choose the 2008 Chrysler Aspen over slightly larger, roomier competitors like a well-equipped Ford Expedition or GMC Yukon.
If you plan to tow, a 2008 Dodge Durango with a V-8 will work nearly as well as a Tahoe or Expedition, at a lower price.

With the carbon footprint of a small car and all the comforts and technologies of a luxury SUV, the 2008 Lexus RX 400h is a green family’s dream.
The 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers the same room and amenities that the nonhybrid Highlander does, only with better fuel economy and the badge of honor that comes with driving something that's trying to be green.
