    Default Suburban or Yukon?

    I believe many people had asked this question and I did googled before this post.

    I want to buy this size of SUV but not sure which one to choose. We used mostly for family purpose, but sometime need to carry some goods in boxes. I am driving a Suburban rented from Avis. The rental guys told me they are the exact same cars so no different. Is that true?

    The suburban or Yukon XL (same rig) will have a smoother ride because of the longer wheelbase. If you use the 3rd row, storage and carry capacity will be minimal in a yukon or tahoe. If it were me I'd get the suburban or xl, especially if you ever plan on towing

    The Yukon is the same, with minor styling differences - like the headlights and grill.
    Yukon=Tahoe (two doors plus back hatch or barn doors)
    Yukon XL=Suburban (these were four doors plus rear hatch or barn doors, and came in two lengths, with some having 3rd row removable seating)
    I like you.
