Excellent Vehicle

by Hybrid Researcher from Miami, FL on Tue Jan 26 2010

I purchased a 2009 and love this vehicle. Like any other vehicle, actual MPG is directly correlated to the weight of your foot on the gas pedal. Expect to achieve 20 mpg under normal driving conditions in the city if you "learn" to go soft on the gas. The blue tooth feature is amazing. Be very careful around curves in rainy weather as this car has a high center of gravity and anti-lock breaks will make the car shudder if you slow too quickly around such curves. Otherwise, excellent vehicle.

BUY AMERICAN

by Great SUV from Pittsburgh Pa on Wed Apr 21 2010

This vehicle is amazing. I agree with other reviewers that you can achieve better than double ordinary gas mileage for similar non-hybrid SUV's by taking it easy on the pedal. If you need a large SUV and don't want to send jobs overseas, this is the vehicle to buy.

20 miles per gallon from a 6000 lb car... awesome!

by Flyneye from So Cal on Fri Nov 03 2017

Easy to drive around town and on long trips, great miles per gallon especially for a big SUV. I have pulled a few trailers and the 6.0 has plenty of power. Bose sound system is fantastic. My wife likes the back up camera. No mechanical problems and we are over 100k.

And more!

by Zac from Clinton Twp, MI on Wed Jun 27 2018

I set out to buy this vehicle. I got what I was looking for and more. I considered the magna ride suspension but found myself happy enough with the 18" rims under the regular suspension.

EWC

by SUV enthusiast from Albuquerque, NM on Sun Jul 05 2009

The vehicle is great. In 8 years (warrantee), I hope the Lithium ion battery prices will have come down in price. Outside that concern, the Hybrid has been great. I am a happy owner with 20 mpg in town and achieving 23 mpg (driving at 65 mph) on an 900 mile trip and an other trip 22.6 mpg driving the speed limit or 5 over (35 in town to 80 mph on highway)on an 800 trip.

2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid

by Disappointed from St. Paul, Minnesota on Thu Mar 26 2009

I purchased a 2008 Yukon Hybrid with 300 miles on it thinking that I would be significantly improving gas mileage over a traditional gas Yukon. The vehicle has just over 3,500 miles on it, and it is averaging approximately 16 mpg, or slightly less, under very normal driving conditions. This is not what I had expected when they advertise the EPA Estimate as 20 City and 20 Hwy. Would suspect that a regular Yukon would get at least 16 mpg on average, so I'm less than pleased with the outcome. Other than that, I really like the vehicle, as it rides well, no rattles, nice interior, etc. Would recommend a Yukon, but based on the gas results of my Hybrid, the additional cost is not justified. Although it has GM's Hybrid technology, they stripped off a load of weight with aluminum in lieu of steel, lighter seats, wheels, no luggage rack, etc., added a heavy battery and the end result is effectively a "wash". Would be interested to hear from anybody else as to the fuel performance of your GMC Yukon Hybrid.

Our Take on the 2009 GMC Yukon Hybrid

There I was, throwing a laptop bag into my GMC Yukon Hybrid test car, when a guy pulled up next to me. He lowered his window and peevishly hollered: "Why don't you invest in some hybrid technology that actually gets you better gas mileage, huh, buddy?" (Yep: "some hybrid technology." I'm not making this up.)

We might have had quite an instructive debate had the traffic light not changed, but he drove home an important point: The Yukon Hybrid has an image problem. It's a rolling billboard of hybridness, complete with aerodynamic bumper extensions and absurd decals. Yet its overall EPA mileage ratings are just 20 to 21 mpg — hardly the figures Prius & Co. have conditioned consumers... Read More
