What it's really like to drive the Yukon Hybrid

Alan isn't shy about his past. He's quick to tell you that he started driving imports in 1986 and never looked back. What he can't tell you is why he stopped driving GM vehicles in the first place. All that of course has changed since he started driving his new Yukon Hybrid.

"I never even thought about driving a GM vehicle," admits Alan. But then when the price of gas became more of a factor, Alan and his wife started looking for a greener vehicle option to replace his aging Toyota Sequoia. They began looking around at foreign manufacturers but when a friend suggested the Yukon Hybrid they decided to give it a try.

"You get into the Yukon and you get more confidence, this thing is built really well."

Alan says he was impressed from the start. As someone who does "a lot of highway driving" fuel efficiency is important. When he first got his Yukon Hybrid, Alan called his dealer to make sure his fuel gauge wasn't broken.

"The gas mileage is unbelievable."

Another pleasant surprise the hybrid engine had in store for Alan was its strength. "I have a boat and this thing has more power than you could want. You can be cruising along and when you want to pass someone, it just takes off."

And as someone whose business is risk analysis, Alan pays close attention to security and safety, especially when chauffeuring his seven year old daughter. "I've driven the Yukon in some heavy storms and not once been concerned about slipping."

Alan's hybrid experience has made him a changed man.
