Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Suburban 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 Chevrolet Suburban 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. Both the Chevrolet Suburban and the GMC Yukon have similar Destination Charges.
