2014 GMC Yukon Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The Yukon is GMC's version of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade, and all three are full-size SUVs that seat up to nine and are available with rear- or four-wheel drive. They are about 20 inches shorter than the king-size GMC Yukon XL (covered separately in the Cars.com Research section), Chevrolet Suburban and Cadillac Escalade ESV. The Yukon is more luxurious than the Tahoe with its ritzy Denali model but not as plush as the Escalade. Competitors include the Ford Expedition and Dodge Durango.

GM’s full-size SUVs will be redesigned for the 2015 model year, and the new versions are expected to go on sale in spring 2014.
New for 2014
The hybrid version of the Yukon has been dropped for 2014. SLE models add the features in the Convenience Package to their standard equipment, including power-adjustable pedals, remote start, rear parking assist and a backup camera with a display in the rearview mirror.
Exterior Highlights

  • Integrated running boards
  • Standard 17-inch aluminum wheels; available 20-inch wheels
  • Heated side mirrors
  • Chrome honeycomb grille (Denali)
  • Available power-retractable running boards (Denali)
  • Available power liftgate

  • Cloth or leather seats
  • Available heated/cooled front seats
  • Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
