Tired of crossovers
By npdan on


2012 GMC Yukon XL SLT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


After trying crossovers, we are back to our much loved Suburban/Yukon XL vehicles.
Nothing matches these vehicles for comfort, value and modest cost of operation.
They are bullet proof and supremely comfortable.
I cannot agree with Edmunds suggestion that the midsized Acadia, Enclave or Traverse is a viable replacement.
ONLY, if you sit in the front seats.
The second row seats in these vehicles are some of the most uncomfortable seats in any vehicle made.
And for all this loss of comfort, size and seat comfort, you gain a miseable 1-2 mpg.
Not worth it.
Before you buy your GM crossover, test drive a new Yukon or Yukon XL back to back with a new Acadia, Enclave or Traverse.

Best Features

Size, comfortable seats and quiet operation. And did I mention LOTS of room!!!!

Worst Features

GM really needs to match the competition with a fold flat three row seat. Also it's time to take the DVD player out of the ceiling and place them in the headrests. But otherwise.....PLEASE do not stop building the truck based body on frame full size SUV such as the Yukon/Suburban. They are such wonderful vehicles.
