We got our Yukon about 10 mos ago. Loved it up until the last 5000 miles. Inside of tires wearing, suspected bent frame. Dealer trying to push it off. Still trying to get resolved. Very comfortable for long trips with a family of 5. We think the cup holders could be improved upon (they did in '07s). Thinking I will have to find different SUV to replace the damaged one we have now. Check out the 4 recalls and 150 service bulletins. Not too impressive for a $50,000 vehicle.
This Yukon gets the best gas mileage I have ever seen in a full size SUV. I am averaging 20mpg in mostly city driving. It is also one of the most comfortable and easy to drive. I have always liked the exterior design. However, the interior dash could use some work which I think they did for the 07's. Overall you can't beat the price, comfort, ride and reliability of an 05 Yukon.
Exterior, gas mileage, comfort, ride and handling.
This vehicle is the best bang for it's buck. The Denali has the most to offer for the larger SUV without feeling that floaty truck feeling.Has the most horsepower in it's class,standard options are fulltime AWD,a great Bose 7CD system,heated front and rear seats, overhead rear climate control, XM satellite radio, OnStar, traction stableization system and by far the most comfortable seats of all the SUV'S There are many other complements and I can rattle on with all of the performance and comfort options but if you are in the market for a great SUV and you don't want to compromise on performance, the Denali is it miles above the competition. Take one for a spin, get on the highway and you'll see
Take a peek inside a GMC Yukon, and you'll see one of the worst constructed interiors of any vehicle on the market. The plastics are of horrible quality, the trim is illfitting, the wood is incredibly fake which doesn't look kindly on a $50,000 vehicle, and the controls are shared with such vehicles as the Chevy Cavalier. What has GM come to when it cannot even design an interior correctly? Nevermind the hideous, bulbous exterior and the abysmal fuel economy, I mean, it's not as if global warming is getting worse and worse, lets just go and buy a vehicle that gets 13 mpg. Oh yeah and it's crap to drive too.
The grille on the Denali is nice..
New interior. New exterior. New engine. New seats. New everything.
