Pros

looks great, smooth ride, lots of power, feel good alternative to typical gas guzzling SUV

Cons

Battery placed unergonomically under middle row seats, rear seat worst design ever to remove, no sunroof option

A Good First Try — Overall ride is smooth and has the typical engine killing quietness of a hybrid. Versus a standard Yukon, I cannot see a discernable fuel savings though. Switching to full engine is great as power is maintained. Handling and ride are fine. Noise is good, except for battery interior noise. back up camera well designed. Radio display could be reconfigured, but nice to have central touchscreen area. GMC could've done a better job with the battery location. It is directly under the middle row seats, which means only the backs of the seats fold up or down. This is versus a standard Yukon, where the entire seats fold into the floorboard. The third row seats were re-designed with a pull out handle, which was designed to make it easy to pull them out, but it takes enormous effort to remove them. This reduces the overall storage in the truck by half of that in the standard Yukon. Having owned the standard and hybrid Yukon, GMC knows trucks, but seems to have taken a step back in overall design to accomodate the hybrid crowd. Having said this, the truck still delivers the power and looks that are a tradition to the Yukon.

Pros

built tough, quality truck, comfortable, stylish, low maintenance

Cons

it's an SUV so it takes a lot of gas, however, FlexFuel is cheaper than regular gasoline so that's a plus

Best Automobile I've Owned To Date! — at first i was hesitant to get an SUV, considering it is just me, but after owning a Yukon, I don't think I will ever go back to a car! this vehicle is built to last - I am sure whoever buys it will have it for a very long time.

Quiet Smooth And Comfortable — Love the room and towing capabilities. Smooth ride and great for long trips. I would recommend this for a family that loves to travel and/or pull a boat or camper to the lake. Or just to drive it as an everyday vehicle.

Safe, Comfortable And Roomy Family Vehicle. — Loaded with room. Awesome on long trips. Effortless towing. I feel very safe when in my Yukon, even in rainy weather. Harder to come by than a Tahoe, and well worth the search. Body style is more sleek than a Tahoe, also. Best large SUV on the market, in my opinion.

This Is An Awesome Vehicle Overall — The overall car is great. The downside is the fuel milage. The kids enjoy the DVD entertainment. The cargo room is ample and the ride of the vehicle is great. The car handles like a dream when taking long trips.
