2001 GMC Yukon Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
GMC’s full-size SUV was redesigned last year, but the luxury Denali model was a carryover from the previous generation. This year, the Denali gets up to date and becomes part of the current generation.

Yukon is built from the same design as the Chevrolet Tahoe, and both are based on General Motors’ full-size pickups. GMC sells a larger version of this SUV as the Yukon XL, and Chevy does the same with the Suburban. Yukon and Tahoe compete with the Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, Toyota Land Cruiser and other big SUVs.

Standard features on the Denali include a monochrome exterior color scheme, front and rear air conditioning, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, two-tone leather upholstery, GM’s OnStar communication system and a heavy-duty towing package.

Exterior
The Yukon’s main styling difference from the Chevy Tahoe is its grille and prominent GMC badge. Like the Tahoe, the Yukon is a four-door wagon that is 199 inches long, falling between the midsize Jimmy and the king-size Yukon XL.

Interior
Passenger accommodations range from seats for five to as many as nine. In front, buyers have a choice of two buckets or a three-place bench (depending on the model). All models have a three-place middle bench. A three-place rear bench seat is standard or optional on all models.

The middle and rear seats fold for additional cargo room or can be removed. The removable seats have built-in wheels. Cargo volume is 105 cubic feet with the middle and rear seats removed.

Under the Hood
A 4.8-liter V-8 with 275 horsepower is the Yukon’s base engine, and a 5.3-liter V-8 with 285 hp is optional. The Denali comes with a 320-hp 6.0-liter V-8. The Yukon is available with either two-wheel drive or an automatically engaging four-wheel-drive system called Autotrac. The Denali has permanently engaged all-wheel drive, plus computer-controlled shock absorbers that change stiffness based on driving conditions.

All models have a four-speed automatic transmission, standard antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats.

Very reliable car.

by Heff from Davidson on April 4, 2019

I purchased a used 2001 GMC Yukon with a lot of options. I'm a big guy, 6'3" and big-boned, with two younger children that require car seats. There is still some room behind me with the seat back up ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
