Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Lincoln Aviator, due to its greater 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 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). The Lincoln Aviator 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. The Lincoln Aviator carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
If you go with the Lincoln Aviator, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Aviator transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Yukon.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Aviator for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Aviator has a little more horsepower than the GMC Yukon.

Utility
The Lincoln Aviator has less seating than the GMC Yukon, making the GMC Yukon the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lincoln Aviator has significantly less cargo capacity than the GMC Yukon.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln Aviator than that of the GMC Yukon.
