The 2017 GMC Yukon XL

When our customers need a vehicle that can hold a lot of passengers, there's just one ride we point them to – the 2017 GMC Yukon XL. Why is this the ultimate choice? First and foremost, the Yukon XL has the ability to fit up to nine passengers – a huge amount! The Yukon XL also stands out for its strong towing capability that's better than average and a nice interior filled with lots of loot. For a large and in charge SUV, the Yukon XL is the prime pick.

The 2017 Yukon XL impresses consumers with its top-notch trims

If there's one thing consumers love about the Yukon XL, it's the top-notch trim levels available on its 2017 lineup. For consumers wanting to say at base-level, we say – what's base-level? Sure, the SLE trim is the lowest on the Yukon's lineup totem pole, but its mega list of luxury content is anything but base-level. It comes with:


  • Heated mirrors
  • Foglights
  • Automatic windshield wipers
  • Remote keyless entry and ignition
  • 10-way power driver seats
  • Front and rear parking sensors


Consumers are especially drawn to the SLE's tech list, which includes everything one could want – and more! It features:


  • OnStar emergency telematics with navigation
  • Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
  • IntelliLink infotainment system
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 8” touchscreen interface
  • 9-speaker Bose audio system with CD player, satellite and HD radio, USB input, mobile apps, Apple CaPlay and Android Auto

Jumping from entry-level SLE to top-level Denali, consumers are awarded with more content than they'll know what to do with. The Denali rides on 20-inch wheels and sports xenon headlights, head-up display instrument display and second-row bucket seats. It also features:

  • Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension
  • Trailer brake controller
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Navigation system with real-time traffic
  • 10-speaker surround-sound audio system

The Denali is even eligible for power-retractable passenger steps for easier entrances and exits.

The Yukon XL boasts strong power and towing capabilities

With a vehicle as large and feature-filled as the 2017 GMC Yukon XL, it only makes sense that it boasts strong power and towing capabilities – and consumers are mighty impressed with both. The Yukon XL houses one of two engines: a 5.3-liter V8 or 6.2-liter V8. The 5.3-liter V8 is paired to a six-peed automatic transmission and produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but there is also the option of four-wheel drive. Four-wheel models come with a single-speed transfer case, but consumers especially like the two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing because it makes challenging off-road terrain easier to tackle. When properly equipped, the maximum tow rate for Yukon's with two-wheel drive stands at a hefty 8,300 pounds.


For consumers seeking more horsepower and torque, the 6.2-liter V8 engine is the ultimate choice. Found in the top Denali trim, this beefy engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and creates 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It can also be matched with four-wheel or two-wheel drive. The maximum tow rate for the 6.4-liter V8 stands at 8,100 pounds.
