Yukon Do It! All Night Long! John And The Gas Guzzling Behemoth

by
Jan 31, 2008 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Roomy, stylish, rides smooth.
Cons: Leans heavy in turns, loose steering, spongy braking.
The Bottom Line: I would somewhat recommend the GMC Yukon as a roomy truck with good power and comfortable ride. For the money, the Ford Expedition is a better value.

I was recently given a 2001 GMC Yukon XLT to utilize as a work vehicle. This vehicle is much larger than the Ford Explorer that I was driving. It is most similar in size and operation to the two Fo rd Expeditions I ... read more

Yukon - GMC Experience - 5 Year Later (7 year update)

by
May 21, 2006 - Updated Jul 30, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Nice overall design. Power with the 5.3 vs. other trucks of that year
Cons: Customer service, dealers, and a few MAJOR issues that cost thousands after warranty
The Bottom Line: Look for these common problems BEFORE buying this truck used. Expect GM to be no help if there is a problem.

I own a 2001 Yukon SLT (5.3 upgrade) that I purchased new. I thought I would take this chance to tell you what my experiences have been with this vehicle in the past 5 years. Before this purchase I have only owned GM products (5 total). Overall, the ... read more

Pros: Power, handling, luxury!

After driving a 1993 4x4 Suburban for 8 years and 150,000 miles, my 2001 Yukon XL Denali is the ultimate dream! My Denali has everything I ever wanted that my '93 didn't. The biggest 3 advantages of the Denali are power, Power, and POWER! ... read more

The "Perfect" SUV

by
Jan 15, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Sleek Design, Comfortable Seats, Spacious Cargo Area, Powerful Towing and Torque
Cons: Bad Gas Mileage
The Bottom Line: If you want the comfort, and handling of a car while having the space and power of a truck, this is the best car for you!

I simply can’t say enough about the 2001 GMC Yukon. I owned a 1999 GMC Yukon, and the differences between the two are enormous. To the 2001 Yukon’s credit, as good of a car as the 1999 Yukon was, the 2001 is about a hundred times better. GMC did a ... read more

The Best Of The Full-Size

by
Oct 5, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Large, but not too large, Powerful, Rugged, Solid, Great Ride, Reliable.
Cons: NONE
The Bottom Line: If you want to carry nine people in comfort, but want the capabilities of a truck without going the extreme, with a smooth agile ride, go with the Yukon XL.

The Yukon XL is more than just a cabin bolted to a pickup chassis. From the A-pillar back, the SUV uses box-section frame rails with full length hydro-formed frame. This gives the Yukon XL the most rigid SUV chassis you can buy. The Yukon XL also shares ... read more

Pros: Extremely comfortable, easy handling, loads of room
Cons: The huge gas tank means huge gas bills...
The Bottom Line: Stylish, smooth, comfortable ride and handling, RELIABLE, a bit expensive but worth it for the security of knowing you and your family are safe. Plan to keep this nine years.

When it was time to pry my fingers loose from my 1992 GMC Suburban and begin looking for another I went into a state of depression. Not just from sticker shock you see, but my '92 Suburban had been a part of my life for nine years and I just wasn't ... read more

The Bottom Line: It's a beautiful car and I almost considered giving up my 1995 Pontiac Bonneville to get another one of these.

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: huge size, power, great ride
Cons: may as well hold the fuel pump in the air.

I didn’t even know that they were making GMC “Suburbans”, but let me tell you this thing is a hoss. It feels like the Cadillac Escalade to drive (with great comfort) and a Z71 pickup with power. I didn’t know that you could use “GMC” and ... read more
