The GMC Yukon XL doesnt have all the features of the Denali nor the 6.0L horse. It does quite well, very well with the 5.3L which gives it a minor MPG advantage over the 6.0L. Aside from the step down in the amenities from the Denali and the 6.0L of either the Denali or the 1500, this is by far an awesome vehicle as either a cargo or people mover. The 5.3L is powerful enough for most towing needs.

My Experiment In Technology. — Likes: the comfort, set and forget HVAC, rear heat and A/C, rear DVD, XM radio, Bose speaker system, the cargo room, the size and feel of the rig, the accessories that are available for it. Dislikes: everything is computer controlled, some parts could be made better, dash and control lamps are hard to replace, information center should have instant fuel economy instead of engine hours or timer, gear selector could be brighter.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Plenty of room, comfortable seats, and yes they are leather and heated, selectable 4X4, not one of the AWD versions, good power and the fuel mileage beat the Acura I had. Lots of electronics, Rear DVD of the little one, XM radio, CD etc.

Cons: Computer controls everywhere, heat, air, TPMS, Air bags the list goes on.

Great Family Truckster — We like this Truck a lot with just a couple of issues. Now that my boys are getting bigger the 3rd row is getting very tight for them on longer trips (mostly a lack of leg & foot room). That being said the cargo space in back is great. The other issue is the 5.3 V8 really bogs down when accelerating with my boat hooked up. Once up to speed it's just fine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cargo Space, good ride.

Cons: 3rd row is very tight for my teenagers.  Transmission could use another gear or 2.  This issue is somewhat resolved in the 2007-2013 generation with the 6 speed transmission.  The tight back seat issue remains.

It Takes Us On The Long Trips Very Well — Love the room it gives us... lots of space... on long trips... Then on short ones there is the gas pig.... thank you It is a wonderful vehicle when the children were younger and needed the room for all their friends... now we still use the room, however the gassssss is a killer

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's paid for

Cons: It's old and we keep replacing major part on it now...

Great All Around Family Car — We towed this behind our motor home, like it wasn't even there. This gave us extra carrying capacity for antiques hunting. Very comfortable ride and easy to get in and out. The heated seats are a real plus even here in Texas in the winter.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Will carry a big load, great vacation car with extra room on roof rack, kids loved the DVD., we loved the OnStar and XM, great ride and handling

Cons: 3rd seat is heavy to remove

Buy American You Cheap Bastards, I Can't Stand Hundai, Mercedes, Audi ... Rebuild America — Absolutely fantastic rig, only wish the steering wheel radio controls were compatible with newer aftermarket head units. ride comfort is fantastic, fit and finish is above other manufacturers. My rig is quick for as big as it is, put a flowmaster and a cold air intake and hang on.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: power, cargo, fuel economy and towing capacity

Cons: The OEM tires suck
