Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Nine-passenger capacity combined with strong towing power is hard to come by, and it's what makes the 2019 GMC Yukon XL a great choice for big families with big toys. Aside from a few other truck-based large SUVs, there isn't anything else available that can match the Yukon XL's skill set. The trade-off is that the Yukon's imposing mass and traditional SUV design compromise maneuverability, fuel economy and ride comfort.

Pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats deployed
High towing ratings

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

The 2019 GMC Yukon ranked #6 in Large SUVs. Currently the GMC Yukon has a score of 7.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Classy cabin
Smooth ride with upgraded suspension

Cons
Cramped third row and cargo space in standard configuration
Bumpy ride with base suspension

The 2019 GMC Yukon is an old-school SUV with plenty of tech and capability for new-school buyers.

Pros
Powerful engines
Great at towing
High-zoot interior
Chiseled design
Denali rides well

Cons
Interior not that spacious
Can be staggeringly pricey
Cargo area limitations
Crossovers work just as well

Wi-Fi hotspot now standard.No other significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Wickedly quick acceleration
Grip and handling are excellent
Still as practical as a standard X3

Cons
Excessively stiff ride, even in the softest suspension setting
Tire roar on the highway can be wearing on long drives

By:

For 2021, the X3 M adds newly standard features and some fresh options. Most notably, its infotainment system now includes Android Auto, which had been conspicuously missing. Likewise, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L are now standard; a matte wood finish is a new interior option. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
As quick or quicker than many sports cars,
mind-boggling agility for an SUV,
more practical than a sedan.

Cons
Ride is stiffer than desired,
fewer driver-mode settings would be fine,
how much power is too much power?
