2000 GMC Yukon XL Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
The vehicle formerly known as the GMC Suburban has a new design and a new name, Yukon XL (for extra length). Changing the name to Yukon XL allows GMC to position it as a larger companion to the Yukon, a full-size SUV. The Yukon XL is the same vehicle as the Chevrolet Suburban, which also is new this year, except for GMC styling touches at the front and rear and interior trim differences. GMC offers a similar lineup of two-wheel- and four-wheel-drive models, using the same engines and most other components as Chevrolet.

Interior
While space for passengers is generous, this generosity has hurt the cargo volume, which loses about 11 cubic feet of cargo volume, dropping to 138.4. For those keeping score, that’s eight cubic feet less than the Ford Excursion.

Like the Excursion, the Yukon XL can hold a 4-by-8 plywood sheet. Seating for nine is the maximum, same as before, but optional seating arrangements include two buckets for the front and the middle row (a new feature). The middle and rear bench seats fold for additional cargo room and are removable, with integrated wheels on the rear seat saving some backstrain. The spare tire has been moved from the cargo area to underneath the vehicle, which helps free up interior room.

Side-impact airbags for the front seats are a new standard feature. General Motors’ OnStar satellite navigation and communication system is also available.

Side-impact airbags for the front seats are a new standard feature. General Motors’ OnStar satellite navigation and communication system is also available.

Exterior
At 219.3 inches, the Yukon XL is almost an inch shorter than the 1999 Chevrolet Suburban, but height and width have increased about two inches. Access to the cargo area is through either an aluminum liftgate or swing-out cargo doors, a no-cost option the Suburban has offered for years.

Under the Hood
Two new V-8 engines power the Yukon XL. A 285-horsepower, 5.3-liter is the base engine and a 300-horsepower, 6.0-liter is used in heavy-duty models. Both are gasoline engines; a diesel V-8 is expected for 2001. The 4WD models come with Autotrac, which engages automatically when more traction is needed. With the 6.0-liter engine, the Yukon XL tows trailers up to 10,500 pounds.

Availability
Both the Yukon XL and its Chevrolet twin, the Suburban, are expected to be in showrooms by early December.

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.
