GMC Yukon Rollover
The newly redesigned 2015 GMC Yukon has recently received top crash-test ratings, scoring five out of five stars on front and side crash tests. Despite these top safety scores, there is still cause for concern when it comes to the Yukon’s three out of five star rollover rating. Because of this, the 2015 Yukon did not receive a five-star overall safety score. Furthermore, the redesign did not improve its rollover rating from the past; the Yukon has a history of trouble with rollover ratings. Keep in mind, however, that no 2015 sport-utility vehicle has aced the rollover rating thus far, but many have received at least four out of five stars.
It is common knowledge that SUVs are especially prone to rollovers in comparison to small cars due to their higher centers of gravity. Thus, those driving a Yukon or any other full-sized SUV must take special precautions against taking too sharp of turns or hitting curbs.
