2008 GMC Yukon Review

The 2007 GMC Yukon — along with the Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Tahoe — is one of three completely redesigned full-size SUVs from General Motors. I've driven all three, and with the exception of the Escalade's more powerful drivetrain and cushier ride, they're almost identical.

While I may not agree with building three versions of essentially the same vehicle, there are many brand loyalists who will always buy a GMC or a Chevy, while others desire the cachet of the Cadillac. I'd always advise picking the one that costs less; in this case, the Chevy Tahoe. For once it's also easy to recommend the Yukon to anyone in need of a vehicle that fits six and has strong towing capabilities.
