Our Opinion - 2022 GMC Yukon Review

A GMC Yukon is just a capable family-hauler regardless of the engine you choose. The basic 5.3-liter V-8 is powerful now that it’s mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to acceleration, the Yukon’s V-8 can reach 60 mph in under six seconds. Keep in mind that diesel engines are quiet and provide a lot of low-end torque. When you choose the air ride adaptable suspension, you’ll get a smoother ride for you and your stuff.

This year’s Yukon has a striking outward appearance, but its interior isn’t quite as eye-catching. The cabin’s buttons are arranged in an illogical fashion. As for fit and finish, while Denali models are adequately fluffy, other Yukons fall short. They look too much like the Chevrolet Tahoe, which is a much more popular vehicle.

We’d test drive a well-equipped Chevrolet Tahoe before making a final decision. The spacious and well-appointed Ford Expedition also deserves a look.

  • Digital instrument cluster with a 12.0-inch screen
  • Drivers may use Google Maps right out of the box, and the car’s voice control system has been enhanced thanks to the integration of Google services.
  • V-8 engine option available on the AT4 model.


  • Aesthetic design of the outside
  • Spacious interior
  • A suspension system with air springs that is flexible and responsive


  • Interior design that seems illogical
  • Expensive

The GMC Yukon has established itself as a family-friendly vehicle, and the new 2022 model is no exception. Depending on the layout, the Yukon may accommodate seven to nine passengers. Chevy’s Tahoe and Suburban will be rebadged as the Yukon & Yukon XL in the year 2022 as significantly more upscale models.

It is possible to choose between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) with each of the three engines that power the GMC Yukon in 2022.

At 355 horsepower & 383 lb-ft of performance, the SUV can accelerate from rest to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. 14-15/19-20 mpg city/highway mpg are the city/highway averages.

This engine is capable of generating 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Yukon can reach 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds because of the bigger engine. In this setup, the Yukon achieves 14/19-20 mpg.

Diesel is now available, which is welcome news. The 277 hp of the 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline 6 engine is more than offset by the 460 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you can expect to get 20-21/26-27 mpg in the city and highway.

In all, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave it four stars out of five for the 2022 GMC Yukon. Overall, this vehicle received four stars for the front test vehicle, five for the side collision test, and three points for the rollover evaluation. The Lincoln Navigator & Ford Expedition both received five-star overall NHTSA ratings, whereas the GMC Yukon received only a four-star rating.

Autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and front rear park assist, and adaptive headlights are just some of the standard safety features on the Yukon’s 2022 model.

It’s no wonder, given the Yukon’s massive size, that the interior space is colossal. The third row seats nicely, but there’s plenty of room for luggage. Without stacking the bags, we were able to fit four suitcases in the cargo area. There’s even more interior room in the Yukon XL.

First, Second, And Third Row Legroom:

  • Back of the Third, Second, and First Rows
  • The next GMC Yukon will be available in 2022.
  • At 44.5/42.0/34.9 inches, the volume is 22.5/72.6/122.9 cubic feet.
  • Yukon XL 44.5/42.0/36.7 inches 41.5/93.8/144.7 cubic feet in 2022 GMC YUKON XL
  • 43.9/42.6/36.1 inches, 19.3/57.5/104.6 cubic metres (Max model: 34.3/73.3/121.5) in the 2022 Ford Expedition

The entry-level Yukon SLE costs roughly $53,500, while the top-of-the-line Denali costs around $70,000. Go for the Yeti if you have the means. A 14-speaker sound system, plush leather seats, and soft wood trim let the Denali feel like a high-end vehicle. Interior quality and finish on most other trims isn’t up to snuff compared to what you’ll find in the Chevrolet Tahoe.


Even the most basic Yukons come bundled with a 10.2-inch touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto are pre-installed on this device. Also incorporated is a 12.0-inch instrument panel cluster. A 6 sound system is standard, although a 14-speaker stereo sound system is also available. A 15-inch neck display is also available on some variants.


The Yukon can haul up to 8,400 lbs when outfitted with Max Trailering kit. With the volume V engine and RWD setup, this can be done. The Ford Expedition, on the other hand, can haul 9,200 pounds.

A lot of towing power is still available for the Yukon with alternative engines. Both the 6.2-liter and the 3.0-liter engines are capable of towing up to 8,200 pounds, depending on the vehicle’s configuration.
