2014 BMW X5 vs. 2015 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 BMW X5, 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 BMW X5.

Convenience
The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Yukon, 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). The BMW X5 is somewhat more expensive 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. In this case, the BMW X5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much slimmer than the GMC Yukon, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Yukon.

Handling
The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the GMC Yukon, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 has a lot less horsepower than the GMC Yukon.

Utility
The BMW X5 has less seating than the GMC Yukon, making the GMC Yukon the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the GMC Yukon.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X5 than that of the GMC Yukon.
