Rear profile of 2016 GMC Yukon

The full size SUV has started to make a comeback, and we are incredibly excited about that! We love full size SUVs because they can fit a lot of passengers and gear and provide heavy duty towing power. And the best part is, new models offer better fuel economies and more modern amenities than ever before! With this comeback, more full size SUVs are appearing on sales lots, but it makes the ultimate decision for buyers much more difficult. Let us help by presenting a comparison of 2 top-selling models: the 2016 GMC Yukon vs 2016 Ford Expedition.

Parked side-by-side, the 2016 GMC Yukon and 2016 Ford Expedition are very similar in stature, and the main size difference rests under the hoods of the 2 full size SUVs. The heart of the 2016 Yukon is a potent 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 that produces 355 horsepower. Models outfitted with 2-wheel drive can pull 6500 pounds, and when equipped with the HD Trailering Package, the towing capacity increases to 8500 pounds.

With the second row of seats folded down as well, the 2016 Yukon has a maximum cargo capacity of 94 cubic feet.

Of course, today’s drivers want to stay connected while on the road, and the 2016 Yukon has the needed tools.
