If ride quality is of maximum importance to you, we think you'd be better off with a Ford Expedition. But if you must go with the Yukon, the SLT offers the upscale features buyers expect from a GMC while still holding the bottom line around the $60,000 mark. Ponying up extra for the XL may be a good idea, too, if a functional third-row seat is a priority. Find a GMC Yukon for sale

Is the 2022 GMC Yukon XL a Safe Car?
The 2020 GMC Yukon includes a full complement of airbags, including front-seat, side-impact and full-length side-curtain airbags. A segment-exclusive front-seat center-mounted airbag is also standard (only on models with bucket seats) and provides the driver and passenger with an extra level of protection in the event of a side-impact collision. Additional safety features and options include parking sensors, GM's Safety Alert Seat, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision warning with low-speed automatic braking, blind spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic assist system and automatic high beams.
The Yukon earned a 4-star overall score out of five possible stars in crash testing carried out by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The regular Yukon received 5-star ratings for frontal and side crash protection, but the XL oddly differed with a 4-star frontal score. Neither have been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
