About GMC Yukon XL
Cruising around in a nearly empty, full-size heavy-duty SUV is about as politically correct as wearing a rabbit fur coat to a PETA convention in today’s social and economic climate. Because of volatile fuel prices and the high demand for supersized SUVs, those considering the 2010 GMC Yukon XL will most likely require its exceptional passenger-, cargo-, and trailer-hauling capabilities. Hollywood types who used to drive 6,000-pound utes to drop off Precious at day care and Fifi at the dog groomer no longer need apply.
GMC’s brute of a ute remains true to its roots, having been introduced more than seven decades ago under the Suburban name (which its Chevrolet cousin still uses). It still has a body-on-frame truck chassis with a solid rear axle and is powered by a powerful V8 engine. Despite its intimidating size, the Yukon XL has good road manners, thanks to its easy steering, compliant ride, and quiet cabin on long freeway trips. This year, GMC streamlines things a bit by dropping the sublevels (e.g., SLE1) of the SLE and SLT trims, retaining them essentially as option packages. Other updates include new audio systems (all of which include a standard USB port) and standard front side airbags.
Few vehicles (aside from its Chevy Suburban twin) can match the Yukon XL’s maximum passenger capacity of nine and all-seats-up cargo space of 46 cubic feet. Furthermore, with a maximum towing capacity of nearly 10,000 pounds, this big GMC is ready for just about anything you can attach to its hitch. The Ford Expedition EL has a fold-flat rear seat and dimensions similar to the Suburban, but it only seats eight people and lacks horsepower when compared to the GMC. There’s also the Toyota Sequoia, which has more muscle but not as much space as the Suburban. It doesn’t get much better than the 2010 GMC Yukon XL for those with large passenger, hauling, and towing needs.
