Great family vehicle! Makes life easy for a family of 6.

I love all of the features of this vehicle. There is a button to put the rear up or down that can be controlled from the front or behind the vehicle. It has excellent storage space in the trunk. The third row is a life saver and is electronic so it is easy to put the back row up or down depending on our needs. The Bluetooth works well and if we chose to pay for the Wi-Fi service we could have a hotspot in our car. There is also a charging station on the center console if we had a phone that was compatible. That is probably one of the downfalls though as well. I would have to go purchase extra equipment for my phone to use it so I still have to use my regular charger. The sensors have also been going out on me.

My GMC Yukon XL is great for our growing family that stays on the go!

I drive a GMC Yukon XL Denali. I love how spacious the interior is. There is plenty of room for our family of 4...and 2 adult labs! The entertainment system is a lifesaver when traveling with 2 boys under the age of 10. In contrast, I don't love how long the vehicle is. I feel like I'm driving a huge bus. I also don't like where the tv screens are located. When a movie is playing and the screen is down, the driver's view of behind is blocked

You got to try a Yukon Denali.

This really is an amazing vehicle. You can haul a heavy load, drive off-road, nice space for each seat and leg room. Seats are comfortable and adjustable air in and heat in front and all of real. Middle seats auto fold up for more luggage space. It runs long term when maintained haven't had any issues at all with it! The only thing I wish it had was more trunk space. There is not much trunk space!

Denali xl comfort and reliability.

I got a fully loaded Yukon xl Denali that has every option included, including ventilated seats which I love here in Florida. I have had this vehicle almost two years now and have not experienced any problems with it. The reliability and comfort are great. All the comfort and safety features make this a very nice vehicle if you are looking for a large SUV without paying the price of an escalade.

- Jerry C

Best big car ever for a great price.

It has rear view camera, sensors, and park assist. It also has lane assist and tells you if you're too close to something, making pretty much impossible to get into an accident. When all the windows are up, it cancels outside noise and wind. It has Bluetooth and WiFi. It is extremely comfortable to drive. I love that the 3rd row seats have buttons making easy to fold and unfold.

- Cindy N

I think it is interesting that the second row of seats are not adjustable.

I am very happy with this vehicle, in fact, this is my third Yukon. My husband is 6'5" and this is one of the few vehicles he can ride in comfortably. I am having a hard time getting used to the back up camera being on the screen instead of in the rear view mirror but that is really a small issue. The ride is smooth and comfortable and, so far, we are very pleased.

- Marlene W

A cool mom’s ride for certain!

My Yukon drives very smooth. It is not overly bulky and easy to park. It has plenty of seating for my whole family but allows for hauling space if you fold the third row seat back. It is comfortable to ride in for lengthy trips. The television is ideal for young children and traveling. The two captains chairs are perfect also for a higher level of comfort.

- Ashley S

GMC Yukon: the perfect family vehicle.

The Yukon is a perfect vehicle from the inside out. The styling accommodates a rugged weekend camping trip, as well as a classy night out on the town. The interior is comfortable, well thought-out, and equally stylish. The safety features are outstanding and have prevented several close calls already. I would highly recommend this vehicle to any family.

- James M

Love that is has back up alarms and back windshield wiper.

The seats are not very easy for folding down and setting up. Also has had a lot of mechanical issues. Other than that, we love the extra space for our family of 5! Seats are comfortable and easy to clean. Nice speaker system and built in Bluetooth. Trunk has lots of space for bulky items or groceries. All around it has been a great family car for us!

- Shelby K

2017 Yukon xl great car for a family.

Has two DVD players blu ray I might add. Gets great gas mileage. I would recommend this vehicle that travels a lot and has kids.

Our 2017 GMC Yukon Denali

Although we've only had it for about 2 months, we already know it's the most roomiest and comfortable vehicle we've ever owned. We say that even though we lived in Europe for many years driving vehicles from there. It's large and a strong vehicle and has features other vehicles should strive for.

- David L

It's very durable. The body style is also very appealing to me.

I have been a loyal fan for many years. I am aware we have a choice in the products we choose. And I am proud to day I have not been disappointed once about my vehicles quality. I like everything about it, the way it feels, the way it smells, the way the seats sink in to form fit around my rear end.

- Gean R

Thoughts on my 2017 GMC Yukon.

I love my Yukon! It is comfortable and reliable and has room for all my kids. I wish the automatic buttons to fold the seats down in the rear were labeled more clearly. We always get the mixed up and which way to push them to fold them down. I enjoy all the extras and my kids love the DVD player.

- Erika L

Spacious vehicle for a family of 5.

We love our Yukon xl. We are a family of 5 and needed the space. We fit 3 car seats and 2 strollers. I am able to grocery shop and fit everything in the trunk. It good gas mileage and all the technology it comes with is user friendly. I love the back up camera and the driver assist.

- Ariana M

My vehicle is black with black leather interior, nice.

I really enjoy my vehicle the only issues I have is with the computer aspects of this vehicle. I have to consistently have it reset by the dealer because it continues to malfunction for no reason. Other than that my vehicle is comfortable, great features and a great experience.

- Desmond J

GMC Yukon is an overall great vehicle!

Overall great vehicle. Performs well, is safe, and is a very comfortable and smooth drive. For me, there are almost too many fancy features. Getting this vehicle was a major upgrade for me and I have never had anything like it. I am learning new things about it everyday.

- Ashley R

The safety features. Lots of air bags and warns you veer out of the lane or a car stopping in front of you.

It has so many safety features. I love the way the seat vibrates it a car is stopping in front of you or you veer out of the lines. The only thing i would change is how they have the trunk at a slant causing anything i put in the trunk to fall out when i open the hatch.

- Jacqueline B

A nice family vehicle with our active lifestyle.

I love the smooth ride. The interior is nicely designed. I love connecting my phone through the Bluetooth connection for hands free calling and listening to podcasts. The xl is a must. The kids can bring friends or we can bring friends and fit everyone comfortably.

- Nicole M

10/10 would recommend to a friend.

It is one of the best performance cars I owned. It's very reliable with all the new technology inside and it very comfortable inside. The best feature it has is the Bluetooth connection with phones. It's just a really beautiful car overall. I would recommend 100%.

- Carsten M

Very comfortable vehicle. The leg room in the back is top of the line.

No issues whatsoever. Performance is great. Reliability is great. Comfort is top of the line. If you are looking for a car with space, comfort, feel, reliability and easy to control and drive. Then this is the SUV for you. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

- Jason M

Perfect in the snow and all seasons!

Air conditioning only in front- have to have it on full blast to feel it throughout car. Small engine that has kick back when going onto highways. Seats are comfortable but not for long trips. Besides that it is reliable and a great car for all conditions.

- Brenda T

Handsome SUV. Luxurious yet family child friendly.

Good performance. I love the technology. Rain sensor. Roomy inside. Reliable. Very comfortable. Bluetooth connect. Onstar connectivity. External features is very nice. The head light led lamps are great. Could actually use more leg room on the third row.

- Christie D

It's very reliable and safe.

It's very comfortable to ride in and it handles very well. It has plenty of passenger room and cargo space. It has a lot of safety features, ie blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and forward collision braking. They only negative is the MPG.

- Amy w

Safety features that this vehicle has, auto braking, blind spot notify. . .

Like the style & the roominess of my vehicle. I have room I carry my grandchildren. They like that it has a DVD player, where they can watch movies on long car rides and I like it as well, since it keeps them quiet.

- Pamela B

It has 3 row seating and is a cool car to drive. I am mostly satisfied.

I really like that the radio is touch screen. It is easy to know where everything is and easy to set cruise. I love that the windshield wipers go and stop themselves. I do not hate anything about this car.

- Kali N

It has a build in auto theft system.

I like the build in navigation system. The vibrating seats to let you know when your too close to an object is my favorite feature. I dislike the captain seats, I would prefer a full middle row.

- Tracy S

Best car on the market for big families, especially those with several young children

I have not had any problems with my Yukon after owning it for a little over a year. It drives well, gets good gas mileage for such a large truck and has plenty of room for my families needs

- Whitney W

It is very new technology with all the computerization.

I like all the bells and whistles. Onstar Bluetooth. I don't like the terrible blind spots. I don't like having to rely on the sensor light in the mirror if a car is in the blind spot.

- Leigh Ann A

Comfortable. Reliable. Safe. Roomy. Full of features.

Extremely comfortable on long trips. Excellent safety features, such as backup camera, collision alert, airbags. Could use more storage space in the back when third row seat is up.

Our Yukon XL has been a great vehicle and with it being an XL we have more room IN. The back for storage when going on trips. I like the drop down running boards due to being short and having knee and back problems.
