Sorting through all the used SUVs in our area can be a chore. Should you buy privately and risk unknowns? Should you buy something from far away, sight unseen? Or should you buy something from us where transparency is always our priority? We’ve also got things that other sellers don’t have, like service records, financing, warranties, and more. But those benefits aside, let’s take a look at some of the top trims from the SUV you know you already want:
Any driver hauling, playing, and just plain ‘ole rockin’ it around Waxhaw, NC, will love seating for seven, LED lights, touchscreen infotainment, rear-seat entertainment, tons of USB plugs, heated seats, ventilated seats, a panoramic sunroof, autonomous braking support, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic detection, a backup camera, park assist, voice command, and so much more. Find a CARFAX® 1-owner version and keep her forever!
Let’s call out the obvious. You’re shopping around. But obviously, you’re into the idea of a used GMC Yukon for sale. Their legendary reputation precedes them, but sure, there might be some other SUVs on your radar. This section outlines some of the chief competitors with comparisons that we hope you find helpful.
In this epic battle of the brawn, you’ll find many similarities but just about as many differences. Historically, both of these vehicles have shared the same powertrain. Underpinnings aside, you can judge these books by their covers as each model & trim will offer you distinctive luxury & design cues. The GMC Yukon has the edge with respect to 4×4 technology. Equipped with Active Response 4WD that works in tandem with an electronic rear limited-slip differential, the GMC Yukon will eventually leave the Tahoe in its dust on trails outside of Pineville, NC, and beyond.
No shade to throw here. The Cadillac Escalade is to the GMC Yukon, as the GMC Yukon is to the Chevy Tahoe. In other words, just another leap forward in luxury and performance. They are mechanically equal, but the Escalade will dazzle with more attention paid to finishing materials and creature comforts. But perhaps that’s the downfall of the Escalade vs. the Yukon. The Escalade might be a bit too precious. The Yukon will help you take on the great outdoors with an enhanced sense of luxury, while the Escalade will offer other-worldly comforts best preserved for where the wilds have been tamed into a country club.
Both of these vehicles are ready for family adventures, with a good-sized third row being about the only similarity between them. Glaring differences come from how the Expedition falls short on power with its 375 horsepower V6. The GMC Yukon can tow whatever the Expedition cannot (and probably the Expedition, too, for that matter) with its Herculean 355 horsepower V8 or 6.2L V8 upgrade that breathes fire and eats Expedition’s for lunch with 420 horsepower. Should we continue with the other ways the GMC Yukon is better than the Expedition? Nah. Hard pass. Let’s just move on to other stuff.
So, when you find a used GMC Yukon for sale that’s just a few years old, you might be wondering what’s changed over the last few years and how close is the one you love to the trucks that are available in the showroom. Power-hungry drivers will love the fact that the powertrain derived from the Corvette goes relatively unchanged in the GMC Yukon from 2019 to the present day.
You can find a 355 horsepower V8, a 420 horsepower V8, a 10-speed automatic transmission, RWD or AWD. The newest among them may even carry the latest I-6 Turbodiesel with a muscular 460 pound-feet of torque. RWD versions can pull a maximum of 8500 pounds, while the AWD version hauls up to 8300 pounds when properly equipped.
Since most of these vehicles are just a few years old, many will have lower miles, excellent service histories, and some type of warranty coverage. Three warranty types include remaining new car warranty, certified warranty, or third party aftermarket warranties available for most of our used inventory that doesn’t have existing coverage. Let a sales associate know which is right for you.
You can certainly find models with AWD on them, but RWD is standard. AWD has its advantages for traction off-road and in nasty weather like snow and ice. On the other hand, RWD has certain benefits, such as a higher towing capacity.
The GMC Yukon is the brand & model, with Denali being the highest trim level within the lineup. Make sure to see one for yourself if things like premium leather, custom colors, inlays, and exclusive features matter to you.
There are a few different powertrains to choose from, but generally, a used GMC Yukon for sale will get about 21 city & 27 highway miles to the gallon.1 Keep in mind that many variables go into achieving maximum fuel efficiency, such as adherence to service, tire condition & pressure, towing, engine type, weather, usage, and driving style.
Tow capacity will vary depending on the drive type, not the engine type. In other words, RWD versions are rated to tow a maximum of 8500 pounds2, while 4×4 versions are rated to tow up to 8200 pounds2.
Sure does! You’ll find this feature as a standard appointment on all trim levels. So no matter how you define the word “adventure,” you can take just about everyone with you to experience it.
