Used Car: 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid Review
The 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid is more fuel-efficient than many other full-size SUVs, but test drivers disliked the chore of removing the third row to expand the cargo area.
The 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid is ranked:
Powering the GMC Yukon Hybrid is a V8 engine and a pair of electric motors. Some test drivers reported that the powertrain has plenty of power, while others said that acceleration is lackluster. A few reviewers commented that the transition between gas and electricity is hard to detect. At an EPA-estimated 20/23 mpg city/highway, the 2013 Yukon Hybrid's fuel economy is excellent for the class. According to test drivers, the Yukon Hybrid's handling isn't particularly nimble, but the overall ride quality is in line with rivals'. The GMC Yukon Hybrid can tow up to 6,200 pounds.
Reviewers wrote that the 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid's cabin features an attractive design, and some added that fit and finish is good. The Yukon Hybrid seats up to eight, and some critics noted that rearward visibility is limited by large roof pillars and headrests, and others commented that the third row's seat cushion is mounted too low and that the third row has limited legroom. There is 108.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is similar to rivals' cargo space. Reviewers complained about having to remove the third row to expand the cargo space and said that the seats are heavy. The 2013 Yukon Hybrid comes standard with leather seats, heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, navigation, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, a USB port, Bluetooth and a rearview camera. The Yukon Hybrid Denali adds heated and cooled front seats, upgraded leather upholstery and heated second-row captain's chairs. Test drivers found the navigation system intuitive.
Other SUVs to Consider
According to reviewers, the 2013 Chevrolet Suburban rides comfortably and has an adult-friendly third row. Additionally, the Suburban can tow quite a bit more than the Yukon Hybrid and it has more cargo space.
Reviewers were impressed with the 2013 Toyota Sequoia's generously sized cargo area and third row that easily folds into the load floor. They also noted that the Sequoia feels powerful and light on its feet.
