The base price of the test truck was $41,262.

The sticker price was $55,447. Warranty
Three years or 36,000 miles. Point: Four-wheel steering was the hot ticket on some cars in the early 1990s, but it fell out of favor. GMC now offers it on the Yukon XL 2500, and it is brilliant because it enhances maneuverability and stability, especially for towing. Counterpoint: An overly sensitive throttle pedal was annoying, and carrying cargo was not easy unless the third seat was removed. Expect to spend a lot on gasoline. SPECIFICATIONS:
