2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs. 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Yukon Hybrid, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and the GMC Yukon Hybrid.

Convenience
With the GMC Yukon Hybrid, 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
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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the GMC Yukon Hybrid, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Yukon Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is much wider than the GMC Yukon Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.

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 Hybrid.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is clearly the choice over the GMC Yukon Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has a little more horsepower than the GMC Yukon Hybrid.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has less seating than the GMC Yukon Hybrid, making the GMC Yukon Hybrid the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has less cargo space than the GMC Yukon Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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 Hybrid.
