Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 GMC Yukon XL receives only minor changes. The Denali version comes with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that should slightly improve fuel economy and acceleration. Other changes include a new chrome grille design and a new Denali Ultimate package with 22-inch wheels, a sunroof and a large helping of tech add-ons.

pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats deployed
Can tackle rough terrain when fitted with four-wheel drive
High towing ratings

cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
Cargo space utility is limited by high load floor

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Safety alert driver's seat available
Quiet cabin
Spacious interior
Easier-than-expected maneuverability

Cons
Trucklike ride with body roll in corners
Small cargo space behind third row (regular-length Yukon)
Interior design too similar to Chevrolet siblings
Some dashboard buttons could be larger

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims
