Beautiful gmc yukon

Love ever single thing in this but the auto stop function really annoy the heck out of me I do t really care about the gas mileage cuz if I can spend $70k then I don’t mind couple $$ extra for gas otherwise I would buy a Tesla


Nice ride

Love the exterior body lines, the front sits a bit higher than the rear, nice stance. Factory aluminum wheels are very nice. Power rear gate heated steering wheel and heated seats are nice as well. Have had dual exhaust installed, the 5.3 sounds awesome. Exterior is white.


Perfect large suv

I absolutely love my 2021 Yukon Denali. The turning radius is surprisingly good and it handles beautifully. I traded in a 2021 Lexus GX460 for it and have no regrets. This handles way better on the interstate. It’s like floating along on a cloud. I have almost 19k miles and haven’t had a single issue or recall. My son plays his Xbox on road trips in the back seat on the headrest tablet and uses the outlet back there. I ordered the gmc weather proof floor mats and they are way nicer than weather tech. You can comfortably fit 3 adults in the 3rd row. The 2nd row has 42” of leg room which is more than anything else in its class. I drive mostly in the city and average 16.2 mpg. Treat yourself and buy the Denali.


Love it!

We purchased our 2021 new March 2021 and have loved this vehicle! We previously had a 2009 Yukon XL and loved that one too but it was rusting and we wanted a new one. It has good get up and is a smooth ride. We have had nothing go wrong with it and have done several long trips. There is a ton of room and we love how big the trunk area is, even with all of the room in the cabin. Only downside, is gas efficiency. But you don't buy a Yukon to be gas efficient. We like how big the engine is and we can tow anything we need.


Don't buy this truck

GMC Yukon Denali - Total garbage. That's all you need to know. Major engine issues by 8k miles. Weeks in garage with mini pickup as loaner for maybe 6 weeks. No updates. Honestly I don't think they knew how to fix it at first. Back seat monitors are just dumb as they don't actually do anything useful. Even accessories are crap. GMC cargo liner looks great in pictures with its ability to split with seats but in real life its just held in place with sticks that move as soon as anything is placed on them. I will never buy a GMC again. My advice is to look anywhere else. I have owned two Tahoes, a Traverse, and two Equinoxes before this never a problem til this lemon of a car. Not worth the 90k sticker in any way.


Loving My 2021 Yukon SLT!!

Bought my Yukon SLT, in 2020 December! Had 52 miles @ purchased! Just love the ride, hate gas mileage(small tank) fr recent models. Haven’t had any real issues to-date. Had to get extra Wi-Fi to play infomercial in the back.


Would never buy again.

Brand new car came with a jenk white piece in a black interior to go on the passenger mirror. Then the drivers seat button doesn’t work properly, and the worst part is the entertainment system. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR FOR THAT!! It is the biggest pain in the butt! And you cant access it from the front at all. So you have to climb in the back to set it up. But you have to have WiFi or you tablets t screen mirror (but what’s the point of the entertainment system at that point. Every other time we get in the car we have to unplu and plug back in the fire stick bc the car won’t recognize it. Then it logs u out of the programs all the time so I’m constantly having to enter the passwords. If your child’s not old to use a remote have fun!! Lol For the price this car is not living up to it expectations. That’s the main stuff there’s still little things that drive me nuts.


Yukon SLT diesel is amazing!

Got the Diesel SLT yukon and it's a great car. Truck chassis, 4x4, high off the ground, diesel with great mileage and plenty of space for stuff or people. Was looking for a 'real' suv and not a renamed station wagon or hatchback car with all wheel drive and I definitely found it.


Yukon '21 - Quality Issues

Model Yukon SLT 2021. Current miles: 7000. Owned for 7months. Great looking. Comfortable interior & ride. Significantly improved over my 2015 Yukon. HOWEVER - 1) Navigation SD Card and Card Reader in armrest both replaced. Did not work upon purchase & took 2 months to resolve and receive new parts. 2) Drain tubing. When you drive in the rain, water is not draining around the sunroof and or other areas causing a "sloshing" sound throughout the car. My dealer stated this is a known issue and is yet another recall item. Now I am concerned about water damage. The dealer has given me a loaner which I appreciate. That was 2 weeks ago. Still waiting for parts on this recall and other recall items. 3) Paint cracking around tail light. While under warranty, the dealer stated their body shop will need to remove the rear tail light and paint.


Just acquired..ratings are first impressions

Gorgeous SUV. Completely in love with the styling and the "Ultimate Denali" package. This is my 4th Yukon Denali. They keep getting better. All aspects of the safety and security package are impressive. It will take awhile to appreciate all the new features.
