Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Lincoln Aviator. The GMC Yukon will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Aviator.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Yukon will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Aviator.
