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

Overall This Is My Most Favorate Vehicle I Have Ever Owned. It Is Perfect. — I absolutely love my Yukon XL. Its beautiful. It looks like a million bucks. GMC went out of the way to make a great truck. I have a TV which is wonderful for my kids. I have leather seats that are heated. That is wonderful in the winter. I have alot of room for me and my passengers plus I have alot of room left for suitcases for travel. For a big truck my gas milage is reasonable. The same a a mini van and I have a much much better vehicle. Also i have alot of storage inside my truck. The stereo system is rockin and last but certainly not least I love my on star. Maintainence has been routine only. The cars acceleration is satisfactory along with the breaking and handling. I love my truck.

Pros: Appearance, comfort, room, cost.

Cons: I would like for it to get 35 MPG.

2005 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLT 4WD Review
I have driven and own/owned both the GMC Yukon XL Denali and SLT packages. They both are excellent vehicles and the interior was the same in both except the back cargo seats in the Denali were heated. Other then that both models are excellent vehicles especially for families.

Value Ranked 2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LT RWD better.
"Both vehicles are nearly identical in power, style, safety and comfort, excellent as a workhorse, family ride and for distance traveling. The GMC Yukon XL Denali might have a couple of extra luxury appointments, but the Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 is the superior ride in comfort, cargo space and fuel economy. So for overall value, the Suburban is the best in its class!"

"Both vehicles are nearly identical in power, style, safety and comfort, excellent as workhorse, family ride and for distance traveling. The GMC Yukon XL Denali has a couple of extra luxury appointments and an all wheel drive grip on the road. So for a luxury ride in the safest, most powerful class on the road, I would ~and did~ make the Yukon XL Denali my choice!"
