Yukon Comparison

2015 GMC YUKON XL vs. FORD EXPEDITION, INFINITI QX80



Designing, engineering and crafting the all-new 2015 Yukon meant bringing together numerous innovations to create an SUV that soars above all others. The result is a Yukon driven by new, powerfully efficient EcoTec3 engines featuring the industry's latest achievements in both class-leading power with the 6.2L V-8 and fuel efficiency with the 5.3L V-8. Inside, a premium, oh-so-quiet interior welcomes you with authentic materials and ingenious entertainment and safety technologies. The result of this incredible thinking is a whole new Yukon.
