We ordered the Yukon XL the way we wanted it and are quite pleased with the ride handling low noise level. We got the SLT, SLT 2, Z71 plus the Red Tintcoat with Ebony interior. We have two large German Shepherds we travel with so buying a Yukon was no brainer. Used the USAA Buying Service and got a excellent deal. Compared Suburban LT to Yukon XL SLT and prefer the Yukon to Suburban based on the options available. Did not buy DVD or GPS system as they are way overpriced. We also opted to purchase the GMPP but shopped around to find the best price. No regrets about buying the Yukon XL it definitely satisfies our needs quite well.
Great bucket seats, Bose Speaker System the ability to plug iPhone or iPod and play all my songs, Bluetooth capability. The ride and low noise level are real pluses. Style and color red tintcoat are also pluses. Air conditioned seats of all things pretty cool.
Off the 6.0 as an option with the Z71. Upgrade the 5.3 hp even more or go to the 5.7 as the base engine.
