2011 Used Yukon Hybrid

Out of our list of used cars over 35k this is the only hybrid to make it. Of course it has great fuel economy but still manages to have plenty of towing power and cargo capacity as well.  The hybrid gets 20/23mpg which compared to others in its class is much better. Sure smaller hybrid SUV’s get better mileage but they can’t haul 6,200 pounds either.  It might cost more than its gas counterpart though.  The interior is comfortable and well appointed.
