Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Yukon XL offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the INFINITI QX80, with comparable head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon XL will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Yukon XL as you will with the INFINITI QX80, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Yukon XL will have less of an impact on your bank account than the INFINITI QX80. 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 GMC Yukon XL will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the INFINITI QX80.

Dimensions
If you go with the GMC Yukon XL, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the INFINITI QX80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the GMC Yukon XL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the INFINITI QX80.

Handling
The GMC Yukon XL has a larger turning radius than the INFINITI QX80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
