In certain configurations, the full-size truck-based SUV is able to accommodate as many as 9 people simultaneously.  Its the Big Dog of the GMC family and also the biggest thing that the company makes since it got out of the locomotive business in 2004.

The GMC Yukon competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia. Let's move ahead and find out how does the competition fares against it.

Expert Review

6.5

Overall Rating


GMC offers 2020 Yukon in two configurations, the standard-wheelbase (203.9-inch) and the extended wheelbase the Yukon XL (224.4-inch) that provides extra cargo capacity and more legroom in the third-row. There are three trims to choose from: the SLE and SLT trim are mated to a 5.3-liter V-8 engine while the top-of-the-line Denali trim gets a more powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

Primary competitors to Yukon are Chevrolet Tahoe, Nissan Armada, and Toyota Sequoia. GMC Yukon SLE flaunts compact dimensions. The ride outlasts the competition in terms of spacious seating, a plethora of features, impressive fuel economy, and excellent towing capacity.

2020 GMC Yukon Features

6.5/10

The GMC Yukon comes in two trims: SLE and SLT. While the SLT and the Denali seats eight passengers, an optional front bench seat on the SLE trim increase the capacity to nine. Second-row bucket seats are available on the SLT trim and standard on the Denali, reducing the seating capacity to seven.

All three trims are also available in extended-wheelbase ($2,700) the Yukon XL which increases the length to 224.4-inch from the standard version which is 203.9-inches long. Each trim can be configured with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, and the option to choose between a 5.3L V8 or a 6.2L high output V8 that puts out 420 horsepower.

We Recommend

If seating for nine is not a constraint for you, we recommend the SLT trim. The tilt-and-telescoping wheel and power-adjustable pedals provide a more comfortable driving position for most buyers. This trim also adds some more features such as power-folding second and third-row seats, a hands-free liftgate along with a proximity key and push-button start.

2020 GMC Yukon Engine and Performance

7.0/10

A 5.3-liter V-8 engine that produces 355-horsepower and 383-pound-feet of torque is standard on the Yukon SLE and SLT.  It comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels or the available four-wheel.

The Denali models meanwhile come mated to a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that churns out 420-horsepower and 460-pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive is standard while the four-wheel-drive comes optional.

Toyota Sequoia SR5 and Nissan Armada SV are better at delivering power with an offering of 381 and 390 hp, respectively. The rides also offer better torque of 401 and 394 lb.-ft., respectively. Like the Yukon SLE, Tahoe LS and Sequoia SR5 come with a 6-speed automatic transmission mode. Unlike its rivals, Armada SV features a 7-speed automatic transmission mode.

Acceleration

Even though acceleration isn't the main criteria for buying a pickup, it's good to have a ride that can pick up the pace if the driver demands so. Even with the truck's huge dimensions, the performance is surprisingly nice. However, the Yukon lags behind when it comes to covering a quarter-mile as it takes 16.7 seconds to cover the distance.

2020 GMC Yukon SUV 0-60 MPH in just 6.5 sec

The Yukon gets tough competition from the likes of the Nissan Armada and Ford Expedition when it comes to accelerating from 0-60. All the three SUV takes 6.5 seconds to reach 60 mph. The GMC though gets left in the dust when comparing the quarter-mile times.

Despite a hitch in initial acceleration, the ride can cover a distance of quarter-mile in just 16.7 seconds. Yes, it's not that great, but considering that the Ford Expedition and Sequoia SR5 requires 15.3 and 15.4 seconds, respectively, it is somewhat above the just-acceptable mark.

Braking Performance

The Yukon takes 137-feet in stopping form 60-0, which is the poorest for the class. In regular use, the brakes feel just adequate with soft and long-travel pedal. Panic braking figures are quite disappointing, and drivers are advised to pay close attention when on busy roads.

2020 GMC Yukon SUV Front Brake is 15.6 in.

The ride has a bigger rear brake for holding the cargo better, especially when it is loaded to the full. The front brake measures 0.6 inches smaller than the rear brake, which is 13.6 inches in size.

Nissan Armada SV and Toyota Sequoia SR5 have somewhat less braking power, probably because they are bulky. The Ford really shines here, with quite a strong bite from its brakes, helping it post a 60 to 0 mph braking distance of 121 feet.

Ride and Handling

GMC Yukon offers a smooth ride on most of the rough pavements however smaller bumps in the road can make the ride jumpy with the standard suspension. Optional Magnetic Ride Control takes care of the bumps and adapts to road conditions as they change. Despite its heft, the SUV can tackle corners fine. Maneuverability remains a problem for a vehicle this size however you will feel confident driving in any weather situation due to the great stability.

2020 GMC Yukon SUV Rear View

GMC Yukon SUV, the truck-based SUV, has a broader build that can take care of heavy-duty tasks. These tasks even include hitting the trails and towing trailers. However, this is also a trade-off, which means the ride isn't much comfortable around cities. Handling is responsive and steering is equally fine-tuned. You won't regret the ride while sitting in that quiet, noise-free cabin.

Towing Capacity

Equip the 2020 GMC Yukon with the bigger V-8 engine along with the Max Trailering package and you get an impressive towing capacity of 8,500-pounds. It is more than enough what others in the segment are offering.

2020 GMC Yukon Fuel Economy

3.0/10

Full-size SUVs are known to be gas guzzlers, but this is not the case with the 2020 GMC Yukon as its fuel economy is better than most of its classmates’. Rear-wheel drive Yukon and Yukon XL equipped with a 5.3-liter V-8 engine return 16 mpg city, 23 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined.

The four-wheel-drive option pushes the figure further down. Once equipped with the bigger 6.2 L V-8 engine, it loses some mileage and opting for 4WD also reduced efficiency by 1 mpg.

2020 GMC Yukon Interior

7.0/10

GMC Yukon is both comfortable and quiet. Thanks to its Active noise cancellation which works well and isolate the passenger from the outside world. The base suspension manages to get rid of sharp impact, but small bumps in the road may shake the cockpit. The front seats are both heated and ventilated and offer plenty of adjustability along with good support. you also get a good view of the road from front and sides as the windshield pillars are thin.

2020 GMC Yukon SUV Seats

The Yukon comes with standard seating for eight, but capacity increases to nine with the optional front bench seat and reduces to seven with the second-row captain’s chair. There is plenty of space to stretch out in the first two rows while the third-row seats in the standard-wheelbase Yukon is a bit tight for adults. However, the Yukon XL with an extended-wheelbase takes care of the issue as it adds about 10-inches of legroom to the third row.

Interior Features

  • Cloth upholstery
  • Heated and ventilated seat (Optional)
  • Heated steering wheel (Optional)
  • Power adjustable pedals (Optional)
  • Leather upholstery (Optional)
  • Power-adjustable front seats

Infotainment System

Both the standard wheelbase and the Yukon XL version mirror each other in terms of standard and optional techs and features. The GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system boasts almost every feature that is available in the market. The 8.0-inch touchscreen is easy-to-use and responds quickly to the inputs.  Standard infotainment feature includes:

  • A nine-speaker audio system
  • Five USB ports
  • Bluetooth
  • Satellite radio
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity varies depending on the body style. Standard 2020 GMC Yukon offers 15.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind third-row, 51.7 cubic feet behind second-row and 94.7 cubic feet with them folded. These numbers are not impressive for a full-size SUV and most of the competitors offer far better cargo capacity than the Yukon.

Cargo Volume to seat 1 (ft.3) 94.7 95.1 94.7 120.1

All the other options here have a better cargo capacity than Yukon. The Toyota offers a class-leading 120 cubic feet storage capacity with all seats folded but the driver and front passenger. That might just be enough to lug your entire house around.

2020 GMC Yukon Exterior

GMC Yukon is shorter than most in the competition when it comes to standard wheelbase but it leads the segment with 224.4-inch in length with the Yukon XL. Even the Ford Expedition is 3-inches shorter in length than the GMC. The Yukon is the lightest with a curb weight of 5466-pounds however its ground clearance is average for the class considering what the rivals are offering.

2020 GMC Yukon SUV Three Quarter View

There is not much difference between the SLE and SLT apart from several optional wheels. GM has eliminated unnecessary curves and lines to make it look more appealing. Even the base SLE looks premium, something which we cannot say about the entry-level Chevy Tahoe.

Nissan's Armada is the largest vehicle here, though not by much. Toyota has the largest wheelbase of all, the reason for its poor maneuverability. Smaller streets are best left alone when driving these trucks.

2020 GMC Yukon Safety

Safety Features

The 2020 Yukon is jam-packed with safety features and the innovative design for the placement of airbags so that the driver and the passenger do not collide with each other during a crash or collision is impressive.

  • Advanced Air Bag System with dual-stage supplemental front airbags with seat belt and occupant classification sensors
  • Driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact supplemental airbags
  • Roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags with rollover sensor help provide head protection for outboard occupants for all three rows
  • 3-point ALR/ELR passenger seat belt system (ELR for the driver)
  • Front seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters
  • LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children)
  • Child-safety rear door locks
  • Adjustable Pedals
  • Traction Control
  • High-strength side-door guard beams
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors along with the impressive low-speed automatic emergency braking which is standard except the SLE trim in which it is optional.

2020 GMC Yukon Competition

2020 GMC Yukon vs. 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe

Like the GMC Yukon SLE, Chevrolet Tahoe LS flaunts a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine. For gear-shifting, the ride relies on a 6-speed automatic transmission mode. The starting price for the Tahoe LS is set at $47,215. The ride takes 7 seconds to accelerate to 60 MPH.

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe

Chevrolet Tahoe LS flaunts a curb weight of 5356 lbs., which is minimum in the competition. The ride requires a distance of 125 feet for halting while decelerated from 60 MPH. In terms of combined mileage, the ride delivers 19 mpg. The ride has the least in league ground clearance of 7.9 inches.

2020 GMC Yukon vs. 2020 Ford Expedition

The GMC Yukon and the Ford Expedition are very much identical but still, there is some difference between the two. The Expedition offers more cargo capacity in its standard wheelbase and a higher towing capacity. Meanwhile, the extended wheelbase of these SUVs is very much similar in size. 

 

2019 Ford Expedition

Ford has equipped the Expedition with a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine that offers better fuel economy than the Yukon.The Expedition also seems to be a better choice for larger families as it offers the best cargo space behind the third-row seats.

2020 GMC Yukon vs. 2019 Nissan Armada

GMC Yukon boasts one of the nicest cabins in the class and it also has the capacity to seat nine, which is more than the Nissan Armada. The Yukon also has one of the most user-friendly infotainment systems and offers features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with a Wi-Fi hot spot-none of this is available in the Armada. 

 

2019 Nissan Armada

GMC also offers a quiet ride and gets better fuel efficiency than the Nissan. The Yukon is a better SUV in the long run and should be preferred over Nissan Armada.

2020 GMC Yukon vs. 2020 Toyota Sequoia

With a 5.7L i-Force V8 DOHC engine at its disposal, the ride has 381 hp of power and 401 lb.-ft. of torque to spare. For gear-shifting, the ride relies on a 6-speed automatic transmission mode. The ride demands 6.7 seconds for accelerating to 60 MPH.

 

2020 Toyota Sequoia

Toyota Sequoia SR5 is the bulkiest ride in the competition with a total curb weight of 5730 lbs. Moreover, it requires the most distance of 130 feet in the league for stopping during panic braking scenarios. Its combined fuel economy of 15 mpg is the least in the competition. 

2020 GMC Yukon Final Verdict

GMC Yukon has got all the techs and features to satisfy most buyers. It boasts of plush interior and also impresses when it comes to driving dynamics. The Yukon also has one of the best in class fuel economy figures for a large SUV and its towing capacity of 8,500-pounds will do most of your job.

Despite all this, the Yukon gets strong competition from its rivals as they offer more cargo space and higher towing capacity with a lower starting price. The GMC Yukon is good but it’s definitely not the best.
