Review of the 2001 GMC Yukon XL

  • Although it's no longer the biggest sport ute on the block, the all new Yukon XL is easily the best combination of size, power and comfort in a full size SUV.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Unmatched interior space, strong V8-engine lineup, extensive list of available features, standard all-wheel drive on Denali XL, luxurious interior.

  • Cons

    Interior fit-and-finish concerns, standard Yukon XL still too similar to the Chevy Suburban.

It's been a great ride.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

We purchased "Big Blue" new Feb 9 of '01 and with 104K miles on her, I have nothing but good things to say. We have had no mechanical issues at all as I've maintained her by the book. The over all design and the power train really can't be beat and for family vacations as well every day use, it's been the ideal vehicle for us. Our plan is to keep it for another 100K miles as we see no reason to replace it with something similar, when it's still in such great shape!

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500 SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I Love this SUV & would never get rid of it if it werent for gas prices. One of the most comfortable & reliable cars ever. Love it! Love it! I always feel safe in it and it is the best on trips! Only had one problem with a fuel pump at the very beginning & had to replace it, but factory refunded my money. Also the emergency brake sticks & have had it in several times for that. Otherwise I really love this SUV!




Worst suv ever

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Worst vehicle I have ever bought. Spent a lot of money on this truck. This SUV slips way too much in snow even with 4wd on. I changed the battery on this truck twice, brakes were horrible they couldn't be fixed, and power for this beast needs to be improved. GM dissapointed me. GMC you just fell in the same class as a Ford.
