Amazing TRUCK!

We have only had the car a few weeks, but we absolutely love it. The comfort is amazing in the seats in all rows, there's plenty of wiggle room for the four kids and friends, even in the third row. What would be nice is fold flat seats, but I guess beggars really cannot be choosers. The performance is just... amazing, really. We upgraded from a 2001 Expedition with a Triton V8, and this car blew us away with horsepower, it's always willing to get the job done. The Bose stereo is simply INSANE with sound, and I have yet to drive an SUV in my budget that could let you modify nearly every considerable element when it comes to things like Bass, Treble, Mid, etc. The iPod controls were a little confusing, but we got used to it quickly (thanks to my audiophile teenager!) This truck finally feels like a car, and it is just simply awesome. It does have a sort of average exterior, but still a head-turner. What is very convenient for a truck of this size is the backup camera, which was standard on our model (SLT) and really worth the splurge if not already there on your model; it's definitely worth it when backing up to park and towing. The ride noise is virtually gone too, we had a whole-car conversation... on a California freeway! What I like most is, unlike some other models, GM still realizes people still need trucks, and while towing has gone down considerably (and in comparison to the 2011 Expedition there is really no comparison at about 5k for the Yukon and a hefty 9k for the Expedition) but we usually just tow our boat and trailer, so not much was really needed anyway. The third row is just about the only thing that bugs me worth noting. I liked the new Expedition because it had a split up third row (60/40) that fold flat where this truck (with less cargo room with seats up) doesn't have fold flat seats, and can only sit one person when one half is down (50/50 bench) and the folding process is tedious and over-complicated. Overall, this TRUCK is an amazing vehicle, from the doors that close with an assuring "thud" to the grunting V8 that has the gas mileage of a light truck a 1/3 of it's size (Active Fuel Management disables cylinders when not in extreme use like on the freeway or when coasting extensively). I've always bought American, and definitely will again, especially after this!

I traded in my 2004 Trailbalzer which preformed well over the years. I test drove almost all other competitors. Came down to the Escalade and the Yukon Denali. Crossovers just fel too cramped. The Yukon ride was much better than the Escalade so it was an easy choice even if the pricing were the same.

This is one of the best SUV's I have ever owned! No regrets just a good overall SUV for a reasonable price. At first I was thinking about buying a Cadillac Escalade, but after test driving the GMC Yukon Denali I saw NO major difference between the two SUV's, Only the front dash and the front of the car!! I Would deff. recommend the Denali over the Escalade!! The only thing i didn't quite like were the buttons for all the components inside the vehicle, the colors on the buttons peel off too fast!!

Traded our brand new smaller SUV in for a 1 year older bigger SUV with a V8 engine. Love the pick up that it provides when accelerating. Love having the control over it being either in 2 wheel, 4 wheel or all wheel drive. We love how it looks both interior and exterior and how very roomy it is. It is everything that we have been searching for. Best Christmas gift that we could ever own!

I purchased a 2011 GMC Yukon SLT in Jan. after driving it for 2 months, I can say I love it. I have always wanted a Tahoe or Yukon. I bought a 2000 Suburban a couple years ago and was impressed by this older vehicle, and decided to buy new. The ride is smooth like a luxury car. The seats are adequately comfortable, getting ready for a long drive, will update after that. The creature comforts are worth the price of the option packages. The engine is the 5.3L, seems to have plenty of power. When you need to merge onto the interstate, or pass on a 2 lane. The six speed automatic trnsmission shifts smoothly when you need it to. Fuel economy is what you would expect from a V8. The tow package, park assist and back up camera have worked flawlessly. Camera does not have the parking lines on it, but it is still functional. The entertainment system has many of the bells and whistles. The rear DVD for the kids and the satellite keep the adults occupied. Exterior...the wheels were the plain Jane aluminum ones, I will probably end up getting an upgraded set. The body color, metallic silver, is probably the second best color only to black.

Love this SUV

by from OHIO on May 30, 2013

I have the Denali package and love everything about it. Rides great. I had a 2003 Deville and thought nothing could ride as nice, but this Yukon has surprised me.
