Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the GMC Yukon. 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Convenience
With the GMC Yukon, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the GMC Yukon, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Yukon.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has less seating than the GMC Yukon, making the GMC Yukon the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class as you will in the GMC Yukon.
