2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. 2015 GMC Yukon Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Yukon, with comparable head- and legroom. 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Convenience
With the GMC Yukon, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Highlander 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). Clearly, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a better financial choice over the GMC Yukon, when considering 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is much slimmer than the GMC Yukon, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has much lower torque than the GMC Yukon, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid has the same turning radius as the GMC Yukon, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon is clearly the choice over the Toyota Highlander Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a lot less horsepower than the GMC Yukon.

Utility
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid as you will in the GMC Yukon.

Warranty
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Yukon.
