Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon XL 1500 than in the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon XL 1500 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.

Convenience
With the GMC Yukon XL 1500, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

Both the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and the GMC Yukon XL 1500 have similar Destination Charges.

If you go with the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

Handling
The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid has a significantly smaller turning radius than the GMC Yukon XL 1500, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon XL 1500 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid has a little less horsepower than the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and the GMC Yukon XL 1500. The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid has less cargo space than the GMC Yukon XL 1500, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
