2018 GMC Yukon vs. Its Competition

2018 GMC Yukon
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Other than looks, there’s not a lot that sets the standard GMC Yukon apart from the Chevy Tahoe.

However, the Yukon Denali’s trick suspension and classier interior might be worth it for buyers seeking luxury without too fancy a badge.

This year, the Ford Expedition and snazzy Lincoln Navigator are all-new and our first impressions of both have been very positive.

The Nissan Armada is sized about like the Yukon and is a comparatively good value, although it’s very thirsty.

And, before you sign on the dotted line, make sure to check out a crossover—the redesigned Buick Enclave is very roomy and drives quite well.
