With the GMC Yukon there’s two engine choices; a 355 hp, 5.3-liter V8 and a 420 hp, 6.6-liter V8, both powerful enough to lug the massive body around at a more than adequate pace. The latter option is likely the best choice for the Yukon XL though for obvious reasons. Specifications can also be optioned in 4x2 or 4x4 to give buyers the best choice for their needs. Transmissions include a 6-speed and an 8-speed automatic, both of which are silky smooth, as they should be when you look at the pricing. The Yukon starts off at $48,530, while the XL lists at $51,230, and options can see it near the $80,000 mark. At this level you’ll be in a very well optioned SUV with sedan-like luxury that can do great duty as a people carrier and daily driver.
