This full-sized SUV offers impressive trailer-towing capability and an absorbent ride at low speeds. The Yukon seats up to nine passengers but offers little cargo space behind its cramped third-row seat. Handling is imprecise, the steering is vague, and the brakes are so-so. 4WD models have a selectable full-time system that can remain engaged indefinitely. All models are now equipped with standard electronic stability control, which has prevented tip-ups in the government rollover test.
