2017 GMC Yukon vs 2017 Ford Expedition
Full-size SUVs offer buyers another option for looking for a family vehicle with superior interior space and seating capabilities. The Yukon, unlike more SUVs, is truck-based which means customers will find more capability in off-road handling and towing capacity. Take a look at this 2017 GMC Yukon vs 2017 Ford Expedition comparison to see how these two popular models compete with one another.
The 2017 Yukon is offered in SLE, SLT and Denali trim levels. Most models have seating for eight passengers but there is an optional bench seat on the SLE trim that increases capacity to nine passengers.
