2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500 SLE 4WDReview

Its A Proper Suv. 4x4 And A V8 — 6L gas engine is awesome. Very nice on the highway, fairly quiet interior while very easy to pass others. Loads of room to put cargo into. I've driven a bunch of turbo diesels (auto) with compairable hp and the power of the gas is steady where the diesel theres the turbo lag and once it spools up there almost too much power, its like reving it up and droping it in neutral. I prefer the gas's constant power for regular use.

Pros: Pretty comfy ride, corners nice, not top end heavy.

Cons: No running boards with it so short people have troubles getting in.

A Street Legal Tank — This is my mother's daily driver. Now, we don't own the usual 01 Denali so its kind of hard to rate it from the normal XL. From what we own its been a great road trip, groccery getting, moving truck. Needles to say its very spacious. It has great looks even by today's standards and still turns heads when dressed up nicely. It's a big tank so its not a miata in the handling department but its not bad either. We have a 6.2L V8 in ours instead of the original 5.7L V8 but we also bout it like that so performance wise it's amazing in my opinion. The truck now is relativly cheap comparing it to when it first came out at $45,999 starting. Now they're aroun $12,000 and $15,000 with the right milage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great to get from point A to B and in most cases C.

Cons: Even though it is kind of old, repairs are still on the steep side at most places.
