2014 GMC Yukon Overview

Is the 2014 GMC Yukon a Good Used SUV?

The 2014 Yukon is a decent used vehicle and a good choice for families. There are two powerful engines, seating for up to nine, and abundant cargo space in XL models.

The Yukon comes with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that puts out 320 horsepower, but a 403-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine is available in the Denali trim. Both are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and both engines have strong acceleration. Though its engine is more powerful, the Denali trim doesn’t feel any stronger than the base model. The base engine earns 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, while the Denali gets 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway. The Yukon rides softly and is poised around turns, though its steering is vague.

The nine-seat GMC Yukon has a handsome cabin fitted with plenty of nice materials. The front two rows are spacious, but the third row is too small for most adults. The XL Yukon model has a more spacious third-row seat. The XL Yukon also has outstanding maximum cargo space, with a total of over 137 cubic feet.

Standard features in the GMC Yukon include tri-zone automatic climate control, a Bose audio system, a USB port, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and satellite radio. Optional features include remote start, a power liftgate, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and a touch-screen navigation system.

Should I Consider Another Used Yukon?

The 2014 GMC Yukon is the last model year of this SUV’s third generation, which began with the 2007 model year. Earlier models are worth considering, as they share similar features with the 2014 Yukon. The 2013 Yukon costs about $2,500 less than the 2014 model, and the 2012 Yukon is about $6,000 less. 2013 and 2014 Yukons have basically the same features, but the 2014 model offers more of them as standard, like a rearview camera.

Which Used GMC Yukon Is Right for Me?

The GMC Yukon comes in three trims: SLE, SLT, and Denali. All trims are available with four-wheel drive or as XL models. The main difference between SLE and SLT models involve standard and available features. The Yukon Denali trim offers more features and a more upscale cabin. It is the clear choice for buyers who want an upscale ride, but otherwise the SLT is the way to go. Yukon XL models feature larger third-row seats and more cargo space. Whether it's the right choice really depends on each buyer's needs.

Like many car companies, GMC has a certified pre-owned vehicle program. For all of its certified pre-owned models, GMC extends its original new-car limited powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. GMC CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read GMC’s warranty page carefully.

2014 GMC Yukon and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 GMC Yukon or 2014 Ford Expedition?

The Ford Expedition comes in standard and EL models, much like the regular and Yukon XL models offered by its GMC rival. The Expedition's cabin is less upscale than the Yukon's, though it does have a longer features list. The Expedition’s engine is less powerful than the Yukon's, and it gets lower mpg ratings. The Expedition also has lower safety and reliability scores. The Expedition costs less than the Yukon, though not by very much. All things considered, there's no reason to choose this Ford over the GMC.

Which Is Better: 2014 GMC Yukon or 2014 Chevrolet Suburban?

The Chevrolet Suburban has the same safety score as the Yukon, but its reliability rating is much lower. These two vehicles offer prodigious cargo space, up to nine seats, and similar features lists – though the Yukon features a more luxurious interior, even in lower trims. The Suburban only offers one engine, but it has the same horsepower and mpg ratings as the Yukon's base engine. The Suburban's low-end price is similar to the Yukon's, but on the high end, the Chevrolet is significantly less expensive. While these two vehicles have many similarities, the Yukon is the better choice.
