2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid Interior
This interior review was written when the 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid was new.
Reviewers say the Yukon Hybrid’s interior is well-designed and attractive, though some complain about the quality of the materials used.
- "The cabin has few soft-touch panels, even in the Denali, which is disappointing given how Yukon typically costs more than Tahoe. Materials are still solid overall, and the ambiance is far from cheap." -- Consumer Guide
- "The Yukon's dashboard has the same shape as its GM siblings. The domed instrument panel, carlike dashboard and flush-mounted buttons make for a handsome design." -- Cars.com
The GMC Yukon Hybrid has seating for eight in leather-appointed first- and second-row seats. Heated and power-adjustable front seats are also standard. Reviewers think the first- and second-row seats are comfortable and spacious. One test driver says headroom may be an issue for taller passengers in the second row. One auto critic says that the headrests don’t block rearward visibility, but the Yukon Hybrid’s tall frame can partially obstruct the driver’s view. This critic notes that the backup camera should help. Another reviewer says that the third-row seats have limited legroom and that the seat is mounted too low.
- "Visibility is unobstructed by headrests or roof pillars. The body's tall flanks block the driver's view of small nearby objects, making the optional rearview camera worth considering." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "Front- and second-row passengers will find comfortable seats and decent legroom, although we think the Yukon's molded headliner is a bit low for really tall passengers to be comfortable." -- Kelley Blue Book (2012)
- "However, those in the rearmost row will find limited legroom due to a low-mounted seat cushion." -- Edmunds (2012)
The 2013 Yukon Hybrid comes well-equipped with features like tri-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a nine-speaker sound system, satellite radio, a touch-screen navigation system and Bluetooth. Only a rear-seat entertainment system and power moonroof are available as options.
Reviewers say controls are arranged logically, but one says the gauges are too faint to read. One critic says the touch-screen navigation system is one of the best on the market and likes how it doesn’t complicate audio functions.
- "All gauges are large but some testers find the markings too indistinct for best legibility. The available navigation system is one of the best in the business for its integration of audio controls." -- Consumer Guide
- "It boasts attractive, high-quality materials and tight panel gaps while maintaining a simple control layout. Even the standard navigation system is easy to use." -- Edmunds (2012)
The Yukon Hybrid has 16.9 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in use, which can be expanded to 60.3 cubic feet behind the second row. With the third row removed and second-row seats folded, the Yukon Hybrid can hold 108.9 cubic feet of total cargo space. One critic says there’s plenty of space behind the first- and second-row seats, but there isn’t much behind the third row. Additionally, reviewers are unhappy with the bulky third-row seats, which must be completely removed to maximize cargo space.
- "Spacious with two rows of seats. Second-row seats fold forward to expand cargo volume. There's no abundance of storage room behind the 3rd row." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "The 50/50-split third-row seats don't fold flat into the floor, however; they're heavy and must be removed manually to free up maximum cargo space. With the third-row seats out of the picture and the second-row seatbacks folded, cargo capacity expands to 109 cubic feet, making the Yukon the roomiest hybrid on the market." -- Edmunds (2012)
