Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Midsize sport-utility vehicles get most of the attention nowadays, but for folks with big families (or scads of goods to lug around) they're just not spacious enough inside. GMC offers a solution in the form of the Yukon, a full-size four-door sport-utility with enough room to handle just about anything a family could need.

Offered in either standard SLE guise or new top-of-the-line Denali trim, the Yukon can be equipped with two- or four-wheel drive. Standard models come well stocked with power everything, a premium audio system, full instrumentation, remote keyless entry, cruise control, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and numerous storage bins spread throughout the spacious cabin. Luxury-oriented Denali models add full leather upholstery, wood trim, Bose audio, chrome wheels, heated front seats, rear audio controls and the OnStar communications system just to name a few.

All Yukons are powered by a 5.7-liter Vortec V8 rated at 255 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, while a four-speed automatic transmission handles the shifting. Standard SLE models with four-wheel drive use a dual-range push button transfer case while the Denali offers AutoTrac 4WD that engages only when needed. The truck-derived suspension uses torsion bars up front and leaf springs in back for maximum durability and towing stability. Two-wheel-drive Yukons can tow up to 7,000 pounds.

On the interstate, the Yukon rides nicely, but the wide body takes some getting used to if you're accustomed to smaller midsize vehicles. The steering isn't a strong point as it's vague and unresponsive, but once you get used to the large turning radius it doesn't feel quite so overwhelming. Visibility is excellent as is passenger room, but if you need maximum cargo space better to upgrade to the slightly larger, but nearly identical Suburban. There's enough usable power from the V8 for towing average-size boats but don't expect sizzling acceleration.

Whether you choose the standard SLE or the high-line Denali, either Yukon is a solid choice for families who want the added room of a full-size but don't want to give up the upscale amenities that many smaller SUVs provide. It may not be the sharpest handling or most powerful full-size on the market, but as an all-around performer the Yukon has the ability to serve you well regardless of your needs.

1999 Highlights

An upscale version of the Yukon dubbed the Yukon Denali joins the lineup featuring distinct exterior colors, chrome wheels and a fully optioned interior.

Great Truck
Steve1,06/14/2003
This is the best vehicle I have ever owned, and I'll probably put 200,000 miles on it before I'm done. My only complaint is a common one, the brakes are not suitable for a vehicle of this weight (A problem corrected in the 2000 model). If you don't drive like a maniac you'll have no problems stopping, but the front brakes will wear out quickly no matter what you driving habits are. Also, if you set your cruise control to 65, you can get 18-19 MPG on the highway. That's pretty good for a 5000 pound truck.

Charlie,09/04/2009
I bought my Yukon New and have owned it for 10 years now with 165,000 Miles. It was purchased for the four wheel drive. The drive train has performed flawless. Early repairs were leaky heater hose eng. block nipple; Exhaust gaskets RR; tightened the oil filter/cooler engine mounting. The original brakes are undersized and I replaced the front rotors with cryogenic cooled/hardened “Praise” units at 20k along with their stage III pads, rear brakes just the “Praise” shoes. These rotors lasted 120,000 miles. One problem engine not starting after a foggy nite or sitting awhile...The security light is on. OK after setting awhile. Overall the vehicle is stable with lower than Honda maint. costs.

This car is a piece of crap. Starter, head gaskets, air conditioning, sloppy steering, squeeky interior, door handles break off, damn near blows over when meeting a truck, vapor locks when hot, rear air doesn't work, leather falling apart.

I enjoy the pick up that this vehicle has. The smooth ride and comfortable interior.

Should I lease or buy a 1999 GMC Yukon?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
