2015 GMC Yukon vs 2015 Ford Expedition
Outside of some of the heavy duty trucks available through the GMC brand, and the 2015 GMC Yukon is perhaps the largest vehicle on the lineup, not including its extended length version of course. Sport utility vehicles might not be as popular as they used to be, thanks to their increasingly-popular little siblings the crossovers, but they still certainly have their uses and advantages. For instance, many crossover utility vehicles dont get quite as big as SUVs like the Yukon because that would make their incredible efficiency harder to achieve. We wanted to take a look at two of the most popular sport utility vehicles still out there on the market with the 2015 GMC Yukon vs 2015 Ford Expedition.
Advantages of the GMC Yukon
Even though the gas guzzlers of yesterday are no longer as feasible or attractive to fuel economy-conscious car shoppers as crossovers, their fuel efficiency has still improved through the years. That much is evidenced by the 2015 GMC Yukons advantages over the 2015 Ford Expedition, as it trumps its rival in both city and highway fuel economy. Through the streets of Edmonton, the Yukon utilizes just over 1 litre less per 100 kilometres. When you take it on the highway, the advantage gets even greater as the Yukon uses 1.7 l/100km less than the Expedition.
Of course the important part of SUVs is its capacity to move your stuff around. In the cargo area behind the back row of seats, the Ford Expedition unfortunately has a bit of a leg up as drivers will have a little more than 3 extra cubic feet of space to fill. But equally as important is how much the stuff you put in that area can weigh, and in that department the Yukon certainly has the advantage, as its payload is 160 pounds greater than the Expeditions.
