The 2019 GMC Yukon XL is a capable SUV that would be ideal for anyone looking for a large vehicle. At the same width as the regular Yukon, it's over 20 inches longer than the standard model, putting its total length at over 224 inches. The benefit of stretching things out is that the cargo room behind the XL's third row increases to 39.3 cubic feet (versus 15.3 cubic feet). It's overall cargo room is an expansive 121.7 cubic feet.
The Yukon uses a 8" infotainment system and has Bose speakers throughout the cabin. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth make it simple to connect with devices. SiriusXM radio is available on all models, and navigation is available on the higher trims.
On the 2019 GMC Yukon XL, the standard engine is the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8. It produces 355 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4100 rpm. Because it has been designed to incorporate direction injection and variable valve timing (VVT), it's relatively efficient given its size. It gets an estimated 15/22 (city/highway) miles per gallon.
The enhanced version of the engine is a 6.2-liter V8. It has 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It's efficiency is not that far off the other, with an estimated 14/23 (city/highway) miles per gallon.
While those who plan on taking their 2019 GMC Yukon XL up into the mountains will likely prefer to get one with four-wheel drive, there is the option to stick with a two-wheel drive version. The four-wheel drive vehicles may see a drop of one mile per gallon during highway driving.
The Yukon XL is equipped to haul cargo, as it comes with a trailering hitch platform and two-inch receiver. To help with connections, there is a seven-wire electrical harness and a seven-pin sealed connector. The strong suspension system smooths out the drive, and the powertrain grade braking uses engine torque to help maintain speed and reduce braking.
The four trims offered on the 2019 GMC Yukon XL are the SLE, SLT Standard, SLT, and Denali.
The SLE sits above 18" wheels, and since everyone riding in the SUV may have different preferences, it has a tri-zone automatic climate control system. It has a rear vision camera system along with an ultrasonic parking assist feature to help with maneuvering. Since the vehicle is quite long, this can come in handy on a daily basis.
The back row in the SLE has a 60/40 split-fold configuration, and because it folds flat, the rear can accommodate a variety of types of equipment. A cargo net can be used to secure smaller items. If the roof is needed for carrying items, the black roof-mounted side rails can be useful. If not necessary, they can be removed.
On the exterior of the Yukon XL SLE are black assist steps, fog lamps, and heated power outside mirrors. Deep tinted glass in the back keeps the sun and glare out. A remote keyless entry system is convenient if one's hands are full, and the remote start can give the SUV a head start on heating or cooling the cabin.
The SLT Standard Edition and SLT
There are several upgrades present in the higher trims. The SLT Standard has leather-appointed front seats that can be heated when the temperature drops, and the SLT's seats are also ventilated. In the SLT, the heated second-row seats have a power-release, and the third-row has power bench seats that can fold flat with the touch of a button.
A programmable liftgate that's power operated can be appreciated when loading and unloading. Power-adjustable pedals and leather-wrapped steering wheel begin to come standard on the SLT Standard edition. The rearview mirror automatically dims itself when light from other vehicles is detected. Other features that set the SLT apart include a push-button start and heated steering wheel.
The highest level of 2019 GMC Yukon XL available is the Denali. It comes with signature styling, to include a chrome grille, chrome accents, and larger 20" wheels. Inside, there are Mastique ash wood grain accents and perforated leather seats that are heated and ventilated. The integrated trailer brake control can be important when hauling cargo up and down hills, and the HID headlamps and LED signature lighting contribute to the Denali's premium appearance.
The 2019 GMC Yukon XL comes with a hill start assist that helps drivers transition from the brakes to the gas while on a slope. StabiliTrak is the name for the electronic stability system that works to maintain proper braking, engine torque, and traction. There's also a feature that lets people customize their vehicle if teens are behind the wheel. For example, data can be recorded and completed into a report, and certain vehicle features can be limited while the SUV is on the road.
Starting at the SLT Standard level is the Enhanced Driver Alert Package. It includes alert systems that can warn drivers if they begin to veer out of there lanes or are about to hit vehicles in front of them. The brakes can be automatically engaged in certain situations, and the headlamps can adjust themselves between the high and low beams. On the 2019 GMC Yukon XL SLT, even more safety mechanisms are incorporated. The SUV can warn drivers about rear cross-traffic as well as other vehicles in their blind spots.
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.)
Note: All GMC Yukon XL MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
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.
