2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid 4×4 Review – The most intimidating hybrid on the road today

GM added aerodynamic aids to the front end of this beast such as a very large air dam. This combines for an incredibly impressive drag coefficient of .34. And dressed in menacing black, this looks simply bad ass—though my wife thought it was trying too hard (boy-racer meets red neck) and really didn’t want to be caught behind the wheel. Paradoxically, the multitude of HYBRID stickers and gee-gaws make it look a bit strange. The wheels are a bit underwhelming and I would have preferred the 20 inchers that come stock on non-hybrids.

A loaded hybrid Yukon like this stickers for about 56-large, about $5,000 more than a non-hybrid with the same options (note: the Chevy Tahoe is less expensive by a small margin when compared to the Yukon). And GM isn’t making a lot of them so there may be a premium. That is a lot of money. That being said, it offers 18 mpg versus 12. At $4/gallon for 15,000 miles per year, you’d save $1,660 in one year. So, two years to pay for the hybrid upgrade. That’s faster ROI than most hybrid options.

I spent several hours tooling around in this beast. And I have to say, for the most part, it felt truly luxurious. Amazing ride quality, superb materials, great power, intimidating road presence, while still getting around 18 mpg. I really got to like it. Major nits were driver seat comfort, cargo utility, and second row seat that should have had more leg room.

Who should buy it?
If you love the feel of big GM SUVS and need to tow up to 6000 pounds, this vehicle offers the best of all worlds. If you have kids and a lot of gear, consider a minivan; more usable interior space with about the same gas mileage. Unless, of course, you like the large presence of a super-size SUV not worry about having to refill the gas tank every other day.

    I love my Yukon Hybrid but having problems with the front end clearance. Does anyone know if the front bumper extension can be removed. I was told the lower bumper creates distinct airflow over the engine. Thoughts?

  • Derek says:

    GM has NOT produced 60,00 hybrid vehicles, yet. This means the GMC Yukon Hybrid and Chevy Tahoe Hybrid qualify for federal tax credits. Both of the above hybrid SUVs are estimated to qualify for a $2200 tax credit if you purchase one this year.
