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.

  • What's New for 2001

    The Yukon XL gets a new top-of-the-line engine in addition to more horsepower for the 6.0-liter V8. Debuting this year is the Yukon Denali XL, which gets a new engine along with standard all-wheel drive and a host of other new features designed to elevate the top-of-the-line GMC above and beyond its more basic Yukon cousin.

Beware of front differential bearings

by on
Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

After a defect plagued experience with a new 1996 Suburban, I was pleased with the performance/reliability of the 2001 Yukon XL Denali I traded-in for, until hitting 60,000 miles and having the front differential bearings "come apart", according to the dealer; as if that were something I should've expected after 60,000 miles! If you are foolish enough to buy a big GMC SUV make sure you trade it in before warranty expires!




Ultimate family ride

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This is one of the best family size SUV I have found. It has plenty of room for 3 children in car seats and all needed accessories. Gas mileage is very good for what you get. Over 325 horsepower and safety features for children. It is not for everyone. Only people who need one should buy one then you wont have to gripe about the gas mileage. Like I said you get what you pay for. It is built for comfort strength and safety. When I wear this one out I will buy another




Typical american car

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

The Yukon XL Denali is over priced. During the first year of ownership, it was in for warranty items more than 5 times. Over the past year, fifth year of ownership and 70,000 miles later, I have spent over $2,500 on maintenance. I just spent over $900 on a faulty abs module today. You would think that if you paid over $50,000 for a vehicle that you would not have such issues at 5 years 70K.

My story

by on
Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

at first the vehicle was supurb. after time and almost three years later the little things are starting to fall apart. From the beginning I have had to have most everything replaced from the seatbelts to rear wiper hose. I was very upset since this was a vrand new very expensive vehicle.




Denali

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. It is comfortable to drive and you feel safe in it as you travel down the road. The fuel economy is poor and I have had some mechanical problems with it that was not pleasant.




Everyone should have one!

If your looking for the top of the line SUV on the road today with all the comfort and performance you can handle, this is the car for you.
