Pros

longbed pickup with permanent cap, hauls 4x8 sheet of plywood inside or 12' surfboard, or 7 people comfortably.  Tows like a dream.  more comfortable than a mercedes.  5.3l (327) is a top.   

Cons

13-17mpg - but it runs flex fuel and regular

Must Have With A Family Of 3-4, Especially With Friends. Great Team Vehicle. — seems to get a lot of dents. the drivers seat wiring goes screwy and controls operate backwards, alternator surges like crazy, heater control won't shut off heat in the summer so we plumbed in a T-handle valve, 6 CD part of factory radio stop working 50,000 miles ago. BUT, it has Bose sound with XM and DVD, seats are way comfortable, old people see it and you can drive to California from Florida comfortably. will really miss it when it's gone.

Proud Of My Denali — I have had several Suburbans and Yukon XLs over the years, with many different seating and power configurations. This is by far my favorite for "on road". The Denali, although the name implies differently, is a road vehicle. It sits much lower than the Z71s of the same model, even when outfitted with 20" wheels as I did with mine. The rear coil springs and air suspension is very comfortable and the interior is quiet while traveling at highway speeds. The 2nd row captains chairs are comfortable and give plenty of leg room for the passengers there, and with these being heated, they are just as comfortable as the front seats. The 3rd row, although a bench in this model, is adequate for adults and comfortable for kids. When additional storage is needed, the 3rd row folds flat for optimum use of space. The 6.0 has a wide powerband and is reliable for the long haul. Overall, I love this vehicle.

Great Vehicle — The truck was great and never had motor issues. Only changed the oil every 4k/6k and no issues. Really well built. Great for long hauls across the country with family. I listened to music while they watched the movies.

Pros

I love this Real "SUV" per se, that comes with all the safety features to protect, not oly the driver, but all the passengers. Comfort likewise was not compromised just for the sake of appearance.

Cons

Not a great economy vehicle if you are just traveling by yourself all the time, however compensate it if you are with your family or group that even allows you to carry more luggages than other competitive models.

The Best Suv In It's Class — You will be surprised by it's turning radius that this Yukon XL Denali allows you. It was even a lot smaller than my Plymouth Voyager minivan. The AWD is the best safety consideration the vehicle boasts off as you can feel and notice the difference while you are making sharp turns at a speed much faster than your regular two wheel drive vehicles. My family loves this GMC Yukon so much so, they regret that I wanted to give it up for a smaller one, but they have pretty much outgrown the very idea why we have this in our garage, since they have seldom come with me in a group travel as they already have their own travel itineraries most cases. But if you want to have a comfortable, safe, & fun driving experience, don't discount the facts I have reviewed on this vehicle as these are true to my families experience.

Big Suv — Love the truck, does everything we need it to do including pulling our travel trailer. We have only owened it for a short time and purchased it used, but has been great so far. Would love to have captains chairs in the second row, it came with a split 60/40 bench, although heated.
