Engine & Technology:
Engines and stalwart powertrains have always been a hallmark of GMC SUVs, and the 2017 GMC Yukon XL SLE and SLT trims come standard with a 5.3 liter V8 that offers a full 383 lb-ft of torque and 355 horsepower . The Denali has a slightly more powerful engine, featuring a 420 horsepower, 460 lb-ft torque 6.2 liter V8 engine.
The SLE and SLT trims both come standard with a 6-speed auto transmission, while the Denali trim comes with an 8-speed automatic. All trim options also are available in either rear wheel drive only or all wheel drive for maximum engine efficiency.
One of the major focuses of GMC in the past year has been upgrading the noise damping technology of the Yukon. Each door is triple-sealed, and now the front windshield has been laminated to keep sound from entering the car at highway speeds. Some of the upgradeable features allow for active noise cancelling technology as well. The engineers have also added adaptive cruise control, making those long trips a bit easier.
Style & Design:
For a full-size SUV, the 2017 GMC Yukon XL looks extremely sleek. It has all of the trappings that an older SUV would have, but the outside details truly make it look modern. Lines accentuating the curves of the car give the Yukon a stylish modernity that other SUVs struggle to achieve, and a noticeable front grill means driving the Yukon is a bold statement.
GMC doesn’t mess around with its safety features. All models come standard with stability control, as the XL is quite large and would be difficult to handle without it. They also include a special warning system for drifting out of a lane, fitted with haptic (vibrating) seats that warn the driver when this happens. There are special camera feeds for what would normally be blind spots. There are also front parking sensors.
The 2017 GMC Yukon XL is an impressively solid full-size SUV. If you need to lug around a plethora of passengers or tons of cargo, then this SUV will definitely do the job well. Though its gas mileage is somewhat low, that can easily be overlooked by the packed-in safety features and sleek design of the SUV.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base GMC Yukon XL invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
