GMC Yukon XL Overview

For 2015, the redesigned Yukon XL got a more luxurious interior, power folding second- and third-row seats, and available blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts. Beyond that, fuel economy from the 5.3-liter V8 and six-speed automatic improves to a whopping 16-mpg, but that combination doesn't feel particularly energetic. The Magnetic Ride Control suspension on the Denali improves ride comfort and handling response. The 6.2-liter engine is a meaningful upgrade but can't make this big barge quick. Properly-equipped the XL can tow 8,500 pounds, its only advantage over a car-based SUV. Reliability of the Yukon XL is unknown.
