Benefits of Driving a 2015 GMC Yukon XL Sport Utility

The GMC Yukon is a sturdy full-size SUV, oriented toward carrying heavy loads of passengers or cargo and towing large trailers, such as those used for boats or horses. Both V8 engines provide strong performance, while the Yukon and its big brother, the Yukon XL, handle much better around town than their size might suggest. Ride quality and interior refinement are other high points.

What's new for 2015?

Ahead of a full redesign next year, the 2014 GMC Yukon features few significant changes. The Hybrid model and Yukon XL 2500 have been discontinued, as has the convenience package, though many of that package's options -- backup camera, rear park assist, remote start, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power adjustable pedals -- have become standard equipment on all Yukons.

Model Review

The Yukon and Yukon XL are GMC's full-size SUVs. The Yukon XL has a longer wheelbase than the regular Yukon. Both Yukons are offered in SLE, SLT and Denali models. Each of these models is available in either rear- or 4-wheel drive. Both Yukons offer a standard 320-horsepower, 5.3L V8 engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Yukon Denalis come with a 6.2L flex-fuel-capable V8 with 403 horsepower and 417 ft-lb of torque. No matter the model, tow ratings are strong; the Yukon can tow up to 8,500 pounds, while the Yukon XL can handle trailers up to 8,100 pounds.
