What We Like

Improved ride and handling; upscale interior; user-friendly MyLink infotainment screen; decent highway fuel economy; Denali trim's more powerful 6.2-liter V8

What We Don't

Third-row seats fold flat but not flush into the floor, creating a higher loading platform; not easy to maneuver in confined spaces; max tow rating less than the Ford Expedition or Nissan Armada; surprisingly expensive

Overview

What's New in the 2015 GMC Yukon?

The GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL are all new for 2015.  

Which Yukon is the Best?

To us, the clear choice here is the SLT. It offers all the upscale features buyers expect from a GMC while still holding the bottom line well below $60,000. If you need basic family transportation with minimal frills, the Chevy Tahoe/Suburban pair costs a bit less than the duo's Yukon counterparts. If you're looking for the ultimate in luxury, the Denali will save you some bucks over a comparably equipped Escalade. Find a GMC Yukon for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 GMC Yukon Cost?

The GMC Yukon comes in two models: Yukon and Yukon XL. There are three trims for the Yukon: SLE, SLT and Denali. As trim levels are consistent among the models, the only real difference between the Yukon and the Yukon XL is the added length and additional cost.

The Yukon SLE ($47,330 for the Yukon; $50,030 for the Yukon XL) features a 5.3-liter V8, 18-inch wheels, a rear-vision camera, rain-sensing wipers, front fog lights, a roof rack with cross bars, heated outside mirrors, Bose premium audio with five USB ports, front and rear park assists, a 110-volt power outlet, cloth seating, remote start, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel and tri-zone automatic climate control. Front bucket seating can be replaced with a 40/20/40 split bench, increasing the overall passenger capacity from eight to nine people.

Moving up to the Yukon SLT ($55,730 for the Yukon; $58,430 for the Yukon XL) adds leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, second- and third-row power-folding seats, a programmable power rear lift gate, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and push-button start, lane-departure warning, power-adjustable pedals and the Driver Alert package that includes the safety alert seat, side blind-zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision alert.

The premium Yukon Denali ($63,665 for the Yukon; $66,375 for the Yukon XL) brings a larger 6.2-liter V8, an 8-in color touchscreen radio with navigation and Bluetooth streaming, a 10-speaker Bose Centerpoint surround-sound system, active noise cancellation, magnetic ride control and a power tilt-telescopic steering wheel.

AWD adds about $3,000 to any Yukon or Yukon XL model.

The SLE can be equipped with power-adjustable pedals and a power rear lift gate (part of the Convenience package), as well as the Driver Alert package, a towing package and larger wheels and tires. The SLT offers the Sun, Entertainment and Destination package that brings navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, a power sunroof and an additional 9-month subscription to SiriusXM Radio and NavTraffic. The SLT can also be equipped with adaptive cruise control.

The Denali offers a Touring package that brings a head-up display, a power sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment package and 20-in chrome wheels. Adaptive cruise control is also optional for the Denali.

GMC Yukon Safety

Is the 2015 GMC Yukon a Safe Car?

The Yukon includes a full complement of airbags, including front-seat side-impact and full-length side-curtain airbags. Also standard is the segment's only front-seat center-mounted airbag (models with bucket seats only) that provides greater protection to the driver and passenger in the event of a side-impact collision. Additional safety equipment includes electronic monitors to warn of items in front and behind the vehicle and of approaching cross traffic when backing up, and a radar-based forward-collision warning system.

To date, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has performed crash tests on the 2015 GMC Yukon.

Competition

2015 GMC Yukon vs the competition

Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban -- The Chevrolet duo is mechanically identical to the Yukon and Yukon XL, with the Chevy models costing a bit less. Also, magnetic ride control is standard on Chevy's LTZ trim, which costs less than the Denali.

Nissan Armada -- Nissan's full-size family hauler has a much lower entry-level price and has a 9,000-lb max tow rating. On the flip side, the Armada's engine isn't as powerful as the Yukon's, and its fuel economy is much worse.

Ford Expedition -- The Expedition and Expedition EL can match the Yukon for size and interior room but have a better tow rating, a lower base price and a flush-folding rear seat for improved cargo room and easy loading.
