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.

Great suv

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

We have owned this truck since 2003 and have driven it far and hard. We currently have 220,000 miles on it and it is still running strong. has plenty of power and we use it to haul our boat a lot. Tough build quality and durability. Only issues we have had is the parking brake light, and the engine knocking a bit but its at 210,000 miles. We do not have the 4x4 but I have a 2003 silverado and the 4x4 has had plenty of issues, so I am assuming this would be true for this model also. However for the two wheel drive nothing drive train related has gone wrong all we do is change oil, brakes, and general maintenance. only issue has been parking break light staying on.

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.

My sixth one

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




I love my yukon slt

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.
