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

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)

Some dashboard buttons could be larger

For 2018, the Land Rover Discovery comes standard with frontal collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. Additionally, the Td6 diesel engine is now available on all three trim levels.The Land Rover Discovery has a relatively simple lineup of three trim levels, and we recommend the midlevel HSE.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology
