The new-for-2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs are among the last true fullsize vehicles on the market. Aside from their Chevrolet counterparts, very few manufacturers make fullsize body-on-frame SUVs, and even fewer (if any) offer seating for up to nine passengers.
Not only are the Yukon and Yukon XL some of the only options out there for large, active families, they’re also among the best. Along with the Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the GMC Yukon SUVs were extensively redesigned for 2015, featuring luxurious interiors, buttery-smooth rides, and more than enough power—even from the base 5.3L V-8. That V-8 gets up to 23 mpg, by the way, so reasonable fuel efficiency is even on offer, considering how large these vehicles are.
That space is their primary calling card. The Yukon offers more than enough room for front- and second-row passengers, although the third seat and the cargo area have less space than the smaller GMC Acadia crossover. To remedy this, order up to the Yukon XL, which gets a significant length and wheelbase stretch to create space for up to nine adults (yes, adults).
Like previous generations, a luxurious (and expensive) Yukon Denali is available, although for the money, it might be best to stick with either a standard Yukon or make the jump into an Escalade. Whichever Yukon you choose, you’re getting a spacious, stylish, luxurious SUV.
