2016 GMC Yukon XL What's new for 2016? 
2016 GMC Yukon XL

With such a complete makeover last year, GMC sends the Yukon into 2016 with only minimal additions. There’s an enhanced GMC IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay capability, an updated Driver Alert Package, an enhanced Security Package, a hands-free liftgate (standard on the SLT), and there are some new colors.

2015 GMC Yukon XL

The 2015 GMC Yukon is all new, with new exterior styling, and a fresh and comfortably luxurious interior. But the changes are more than cosmetic: Under the sheet metal is a new chassis and suspension, and the two V8 engines are significantly improved for more power and better fuel economy.

About GMC Yukon XL

Among full-size SUVs nothing stands above the GMC Yukon, not in its combination of size, power, luxury, capabilities and commanding presence. Available in Yukon and the longer Yukon XL, and in trim levels of SLE, fully-outfitted SLT and range-topping Denali, the Yukon gets its top billing the old-fashioned way: It earned it. If you need any more convincing, consider the Denali. It retains its unmatched 6.2-liter 420-horsepower V8 and adds an astonishing level of comfort, convenience, luxury and technology features; there has never been a full-size SUV quite like this. And the customers agree, with about 60 percent of Yukon buyers being seduced by the Denali’s undeniable charms. If you’re looking for the top of the SUV category, this is it.

"The NEW, GM 2015 model Full-size SUVs indeed set new standards in this segment. I ordered out my Yukon Denali and took delivery in June 2014. It currently has about 8000 miles. I have had flawless performance and ZERO recalls or issues. The 6.2L/420HP V-8 is incredible. The fit and finish of this truck is amazing and the list of features is endless. The interior comfort and quietness at highway speed rivals any luxury sedan. In person, I compared the new GM's against the other domestic and import brands in this market. Without any doubts, the structural integrity, interior materials, options and engines were were far superior in the GM lineup. As many predict, I agree that GM will continue to dominate the full-size SUV market! I appreciate the massive 6.2L/420HP V-8 engine with active fuel management which allows me to obtain over 20mpg while cruising at highway speeds. Acceleration, braking and overall response is outstanding for a vehicle this size. I operate my truck in some brutal Wisconsin snow storms, the 4WD system could not be more sure-footed and reliable! Creature comforts like Large-screen Navigation, DVD Entertainment, multiple Media-links, Heated/Cooled leather seats and 12-speaker Bose sound compete head-to-head with the Import Brands, yet you will save $10-15K buying this more solid, domestic truck. Numerous collision avoidance systems and security features are standard, keeping the occupants & truck safe. The 3rd row seat does lack leg room for adults. However, if you routinely plan to carry more than 5 adults, the XL version of this truck certainly addresses this issue very well. I typically never use the 3rd row and suggest keeping those seats folded down to better utilize that space for storage and utility."

"After driving a beautiful, top of the line 2005 Sequoia Limited for 10 years with zero issues, I decided to trade cars because it made a slight noise when I hooked up my 5500 lb. horse trailer. I'm not willing to take any chances with my horses, so I looked for the highest towing capacity in luxury, comparable SUV's. I was sucked in to purchasing this truck by a dizzying array of electronic perks, and the 420 horsepower/6.2 liter engine. I paid top dollar for a top of the line 2015 Denali, that inexplicably had 200 miles on it already. When it had just over 500 miles, the entire dashboard array went dark, as I was driving alone in an unfamiliar area of Miami, in the rain! I had no navigation, no compass, no clock, and no phone! When I finally got home, I had to go out of town without the truck for 5 days. When I came back, the battery was so dead, I couldn't even open the doors with the key fob! The dealer replaced the complete dashboard array, which took several days. I had to spend over an hour with the GMC rep on OnStar, in order to sinc my phone with the BlueTooth. At 3000 miles, I returned to the dealer with an AC issue - it cuts out intermittently, and blows hot air. In South Florida, AC is not an option, it is a necessity. They kept the truck for 5 days, and returned it saying they could not duplicate my complaint. So, now I have it. I wish I had my Sequoia back. Oh, BTW, I paid $72K, including tax. How dumb do I feel?!"

"This is my fourth Yukon XL, and have driven these exclusively for 15 years. The 2015 I bought has a couple issues that I wish GMC would change. Yes, I have blind spot alert, but they redesigned the mirrors so small, that if you are backing and parking, they will cause you to hit small, low items. For a truck this size, you need big mirrors. Beeps and seat vibrations, and back up cameras, do not do the same as a full size mirror. I know this sounds petty, but having driven one for 15 years, and backing up steep driveways, tight corners, etc., I have never had a problem. The 2015 is a nightmare in tight spaces. Why would you shrink the mirrors on a large vehicle like this? Also, on 2015 they loosened up the suspension to a ridiculous level. Sure drives great on the interstate, but in town if you go over a bump, speed bump, anything, it porpoises up and down like crazy. Go over a speed bump at 10mph and the front of this truck looks like Flipper doing stunts at SeaWorld. Better put your coffee down or you will be wearing it. The prior models were stiffer and handled bumps in town with a solid and steady suspension. All in all, the new suspension package is NOT desirable for in town driving or on an unpaved road, or over a speed bump, or a dip in the road...well, you get the idea. This one has been relatively issue free, as have been my prior ones. The mileage is much better on these models and I appreciate that. Just stiffen the suspension and put the old mirrors back on it."
