2017 Acura MDX vs. 2016 GMC Yukon Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Acura MDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.

Convenience
The GMC Yukon requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura MDX, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura MDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Yukon. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura MDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much slimmer than the GMC Yukon, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura MDX is slightly shorter than the GMC Yukon, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Acura MDX has much lower torque than the GMC Yukon, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura MDX has the same turning radius as the GMC Yukon, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little less horsepower than the GMC Yukon.

Utility
The Acura MDX has less seating than the GMC Yukon, making the GMC Yukon the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura MDX has less cargo space than the GMC Yukon, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura MDX than that of the GMC Yukon.
