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
