I bought this Yukon XL Denali for towing And long family trips. The comfort and ride are unsurpassed And the power for towing is awesome. I replaced a Suburban which had served me well, but was not up to the demands of a larger horse trailer being towed in the mountains of NC. Not only is the power their when needed but the transmission in "tow haul" mode makes downhill descents a non-issue.

New Yukon XL Denali Owner

Finally traded my 99 Expedition with 281K miles (engine #2) for a 2007 Yukon XL Denali. Wow! What a difference! The Denali is simply a dream. Leather. Power everything and actual POWER to spare. Kids love DVD player. Wife and I love the comfort overall and the split temperature controls. Mileage is running between 15.5 and 16/ gallon and that's in stop and go traffic. Haven't given it an interstate run yet. This is at least what I was getting in the Expedition so it's no big surprise. Had an Explorer for 5 years and an Expedition for 13 years and they were okay but this Yukon is simply head and shoulders above them. If you are considering a really fine SUV you can't go wrong with the Denali 1500 XL.

Great vehicle for large family

We have four small children and needed room behind the third row for a stroller. That was the problem with a lot of other SUV's with a third row was they had no space behind them. We have been extremely happy with our decision after weeks of comparison shopping. The only thing I would change would be for the second row captain chairs to slide front and back and also be completely removed if needed.

I bought this 2007 Yukon XL 2 months ago and am very happy with the purchase. It rides like a dream and is very quiet. It's easily the best vehicle I've ever driven in snow and has some serious power when you need it. I had read some reports of these vehicles being oil guzzlers or having cheap interior but I've not had a problem. The only issues I have are with the gas mileage- I knew what I was getting into but it's still a hard pill to swallow. And the black cloth interior is hard to keep clean.

Former Toyota Owner

I was looking for an SUV with 3rd row, but at the same time I wanted an SUV that was a truck. So, I passed on the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. I also wanted something big with space behind the 3rd row (that's more than 10 inches). I don't have a long commute, so not really worried about mpg. I was looking at the Toyota Sequoia (which I owned at one time) or something else. I'm not a GM fan, however, I left my options open. So, I checked out the '07 Yukon XL. It took me 2 minutes on the test drive to decide to buy it. It's awesome. Plenty of room in the back, great interior, comfortable seats, and all the options that I need. It's a little slow on the takeoff, but cruises very nice on the interstate. I'm surprised that I didn't buy a Toyota, but I saved about $10K compared to a used '08 Sequioa. I just love this truck. If you are thinking about a Denali....you might be wasting your money. I test drove 1 for a couple of days. I don't think it's worth the extra money and I didn't like the issues they have been having with the suspension. Hope this helps you decide on your next vehicle.

We recently got rid of the denali because our lease had expired but this was a great truck. Tons of power, lots of room, great all the way around. We now have an Escalade which is basically the same truck minus a few bells and whistles. Not sure the cadillac is worth the 13K+ more that the Yukon. I would save your money and go for the Denali...you wont be disapointed.

2nd time

by from Metairie, LA on October 25, 2010

this is the best family towing option on the market. What a smooth ride! The 2500 pulls & stops our 30' boat with ease.

We just bought a used 07 Yukon XL SLE in May 2011 and love it! Our only complaint is that we wish we would have spend a little more money to get leather and the digital temperature controls. We love all the room the first 2 rows have, and feel the 3rd row lacks leg room (but it barely gets used as we are a family of 4), and the cargo space behind the 3rd row can't be beat! We can't wait for our first snow here in Colorado to see what it can really do. I gave the car 3 stars for "value for the money" because I feel they are rediculously expensive, especially new. We paid about $22,900 for ours with 40k miles. If we had to pay much more than that, we'd still be driving our Kia Sportage. Just to mention, It was in the shop for the first 45 days because the ABS was engaging on dry surfaces causing us not to be able to stop efficiently at times. After replacing all the brake components, suspension, computer, wheel hubs and sensors, they determined it was normal function caused by the tests the vehicle runs at start up. I thought it was funny that none of the techs or service writers had ever heard of that problem before.
