GMC Yukon/XL

BASE PRICE RANGE: $39,485-$62,310
BODY TYPE: Full-size SUV

WHAT'S NEW: The 2011 Yukon and extended-wheelbase XL are mostly carryovers from last year's model. Opt for the Denali trim and you'll get more expressive sheetmetal and interior appointments, and you can grab the Hybrid for extra mileage. All Yukons get OnStar version 9.0 and two new colors, Mocha Steel Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic, are available.

AVOID: The Escalade and try a loaded Yukon with the same engine at a much lower price.

SUM UP: Big, strong, and capable.
RATING: ***1/2
