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

2020 Ford Expedition -- It has superior third-row space and cargo capacity, a far more civilized driving experience and interior quality to rival the Yukon. If you're in the market for a capable full-size SUV, this is where your search should start.
2020 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban -- This duo is mechanically identical to the Yukon and the Yukon XL, with Chevy's models being less expensive versions. Also, Magnetic Ride Control is standard on Chevy's LTZ trim, which costs less than the Denali.
2020 Buick Enclave -- Your best large crossover alternative at a GMC-Buick dealership is the Enclave. It has a more spacious third-row seat than the regular Yukon while being more maneuverable, comfortable, efficient and luxurious.
Used Cadillac Escalade -- The Escalade touts more equipment, more standard power and more exuberant styling than the Yukon, yet it's still part of the GM family. Prices are steep, though, so as an alternative to Yukon, you'll probably want to look at a certified pre-owned or a used model.
