When you want a big SUV that can hold its own, come what may, you’ll be happiest with a GMC Yukon. Although the inside of one of these vehicles can sometimes resemble an upscale hotel room, the 2012 GMC Yukon also has the most hauling capacity in its class. Whatever your reasons for needing one, chances are the Yukon has your big-SUV-needs covered.

Key Features

Driving a vehicle this size is a lot easier than it looks thanks to GMC’s use of the StabiliTrak stability control system, featuring mechanical and electrical components. With the 2012 Yukon, you can pick from a range of V8 engines too, all of which play well with the six-speed automatic transition.

Changes for 2012

The 2012 GMC Yukon now comes with the option of a heated steering wheel. Heated seats are now standard on the Yukon SLTs.

A screen was also added so third-row passengers can better enjoy the rear DVD entertainment system.

Trailer sway control is new and great for those who have a lot to haul. Hill start assist will prove helpful as well.

What We Like

There’s basically a version of the 2012 GMC Yukon for everyone. Need towing power? Go with the 2500 ¾-ton version and rest assured there is no other SUV that can beat yours. Prefer to focus on efficiency? Then you’ll love the Yukon Hybrid.

What Concerns Us

A lot of people forget about the 2012 GMC Acadia and end up paying more for the Yukon, both in sticker price and at the pump. The Acadia can fit eight passengers, is a lot more maneuverable and will save you money.

Available Models

There are three models to choose from: SLE, SLT and Denali. The first two will give you 220hp@5,400RPM and get 15/21mpg.

The Denali has 402hp@5,700RPM, but only gets 14/18mpg. However, the Denali also comes with luxurious trim and features that are right up there with a Cadillac Escalade.

Major Recalls

GMC has only recalled the 2012 Yukon once. On 12/20/2014, the recall was issued because the lock actuator was getting stuck on some models, which would cause the key to also get stuck in the ignition, sometimes leaving the engine on.

Other times, though, the ignition would snap back to its “accessory” position. If the vehicle was in use, it would greatly increase the chances of a crash.

Common Issues

There haven’t been any major issues associated with this vehicle as it generally receives very favorable reviews.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
