These full-sized SUVs offer impressive trailer-towing capability and a smooth, quiet ride--at least at low speeds. The V8s feel strong, and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The Yukon can also accommodate up to nine, but unlike the longer Yukon XL (a twin of the Chevy Suburban), it offers very little cargo space behind its cramped third-row seat. Handling is imprecise but ultimately secure.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
