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.

2001 xukon xl

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Simply the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. I have owned over 35 vehicles from 2 seater Mercedes convertibles to 1 ton pickups and every thing inbetween and if I have my way I will never drive anything but a Yukon XL again.

Suburbans have evolved from vinyl interiors, industrial-grade paint and truck-like ride. This one almost feels TOO civilized.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Even though i can't get over the bad transmission problems i have had in the past,i love my truck. This is the best car i have ever bought!!! It is the best looking suv on the road. It is so smooth over bumps. The interior is well laid out and functional except i need more room for my cd's. The seats are comfy and supportive!!!! The designers need to use better plastic however! I hate my cargo doors because they block my view when i am trying to get over into the next lane. Build Quality ZIP!!!! I have had more problems with this truck than anything i have ever driven. If GMC keeps up i will have to get and Expedition! The dealer is the best in New Bern.

Overall, truck rides very well. Very roomy for the kids. Carries 4*8 sheets of material (drywall). Load it up for the cottage and attach boat with no problem.
