GMC Yukon XL Overview

If you need space for seven, eight, or even nine passengers, with room for all their stuff, and towing capacity for a big trailer, little else but the Yukon XL will do. Redesigned for 2015, these big busses get sumptuous interiors, and power folding second- and third-row seats and all the latest electronic features. The Denali makes a more compelling if much more expensive package with a more powerful 420-hp, 6.2-liter V8 and Magnetic Ride Control suspension that seriously improved ride and handling safety. More importantly in such a big beast, blind spot monitoring and cross traffic alert are available to keep you from running over obstacles you cannot see. Beyond that, it's pretty much your old-fashioned Yukon XL, with a 5.3-liter V8 and six speed automatic, and fuel economy that improves to a whopping 16 mpg.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
