A reliable SUV priced under $10,000 is difficult to find if you’re only looking at new models. By expanding your shopping perspective to include used models, you’ll find more options that fit your driving needs and your budget. With GMC, focus your attention on the 2007 GMC Yukon, which earned a top spot on U.S. News & World Report’s list of the “25 Most Reliable Used SUVs Under $10,000.”

The 2007 GMC Yukon earned a USN Overall Score of 9.2 out of 10, and made the cut thanks to its large size and good performance.

“There are a handful of V8 engine options, and handling is pretty good for an SUV of this size,” reports U.S. News & World Report writer Cherise Threewitt. “It you’re going to be hauling around all that bulk, it’s probably worth looking for a model equipped with a third row, which can seat up to eight passengers. Some Yukon models even had a front bench that boosted capacity to nine.”

The experts at Kelley Blue Book called out the 2007 GMC Yukon’s power fold-and-flip second row and rearview camera as two of their favorite features on the notable model.

“Even if you don’t need its maximum seating or towing capacities, the all-new Yukon shines on enough levels to satisfy the needs and tastes of almost any full-size SUV buyer. That it also gets the category’s best fuel mileage is a definite plus,” according to KBB.
