The first step in any big trip is getting everything and everyone into the vehicle comfortably. The Chevy Tahoe offers seating for up to eight. There will be more room to spare in the GMC Yukon, however, since it has a maximum seating capacity of nine. Let’s climb aboard!

Room for All

If you’re looking for some extra room to spread out, everyone will be happy in either model. They offer virtually identical dimensions for every row:

GMC Yukon
Chevy Tahoe
First/Second/Third Legroom (inches) 44.5/42/34.9 44.5/42/36.7
First/Second/Third Headroom (inches) 42.3/38.9/38.2 42.3/38.9/38.2
First/Second/Third Shoulder Room (inches) 66/64.8/62.7 66/64.8/61.7

Pack It All

As your guests settle into their seats, you can load up all the luggage. The Yukon and the Tahoe have ample storage space for camping gear, picnic snacks, suitcases, or whatever you need for your time away. They both offer a cavernous total of 122.9 cubic feet of max cargo space.

Do you want to expand your space further? Only the GMC Yukon is available with a longer wheelbase. The GMC Yukon XL extends the vehicle length by 15.2 inches and provides up to 144.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume.

GMC Yukon

You expect that SUVs the size of the GMC Yukon and the Chevy Tahoe pack a punch, and you’d be right. Both models offer three engine options, so you can decide just how much strength you’ll need. Whether you’re towing or hitting the trails, these SUVs are up for the challenge.

Forge Ahead

The 2023 GMC Yukon and the Chevy Tahoe share the same three engine options. They include:

  • 355-horsepower, 5.3L V8
  • 420-horsepower, 6.2L V8
  • 277-horsepower, 3.0L Duramax® Turbo Diesel

You heard that right! You can opt for a diesel engine with either SUV. It’s perfect for long-distance hauls, so if you regularly take your travel trailer along on cross-country road trips, the 3.0L Duramax® Turbo Diesel could be perfect for you.

Tow, Tow, Tow Your Boat, Trailer, or Camper

All that power makes these SUVs optimal towing vehicles. In fact, both models offer an impressive 8,400 pounds of max towing capacity. Go ahead and hook up a utility trailer for more storage, a camper, or even a boat for a day on the water.

An advanced trailering system is also available with both models to make your life easy. They feature systems such as:

  • Hitch Guidance with Hitch View
  • Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert
  • In-Vehicle Trailering App
