DETROIT – U.S. News & World Report today announced the 2016 GMC Yukon is the Best Large SUV for Families, praising the vehicle for its capability, features and comforts.

“The Yukon has the most family-friendly features in the class,” said Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor for U.S. News Best Cars. “The Apple CarPlay and in-car Wi-Fi are really cutting edge, standout features. The Yukon also won because it has such a high US News score – it gets really positive reviews not only for its space and comfort, but also its performance.” 

Evaluation and methodology for the award included: overall sentiment of professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume and the availability of family-friendly features.

“The GMC line-up is designed with the expectation of premium comforts, utility and unique features for any passenger,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “The Yukon is no exception as it is highly sought-after for its styling, spaciousness and family-oriented design. It is an exceptional honor to be named the best large SUV for families by U.S. News & World Report in a category so important to our customers and our brand.”

The Yukon also was recently ranked highest in its segment for the third-straight year in the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study.

GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest-possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.
