2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs. 2016 GMC Yukon Review

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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class as you will with the GMC Yukon, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 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. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is much wider than the GMC Yukon, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the GMC Yukon.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has a larger turning radius than the GMC Yukon, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the GMC Yukon, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and 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.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class than that of the GMC Yukon.
