Comparison Review


Comfort
The GMC Yukon Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Yukon XL 1500, with comparable 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 GMC Yukon Hybrid.

Convenience
With the GMC Yukon XL 1500, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the GMC Yukon 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). The GMC Yukon Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

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

If you go with the GMC Yukon 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 GMC Yukon Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the GMC Yukon XL 1500.

Handling
The GMC Yukon 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.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Yukon Hybrid and the GMC Yukon XL 1500. The GMC Yukon 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.
