    Big Room And Comfort, Sporty Handling Vehicle Doesn't Fell Big At All. — You can't beat the performance, handling, and economy of the variable displacement engine (swaps between 4 and 8 cyclinders depending on demand) of a Yukon XL/Chevy Suburban. This is the third one I've owned and will own another. You can expect to easily get 300,000 miles out of this vehicle with regular service intervals. If you have kids, you can't put them in a safer vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome safety rating. You can't beat the room.  Handles really well, doesn't feel like a big vehicle.

    Cons: 20 miles to the gallon on the highway is awesome if you're carrying 5 or more people, but I'm usually traveling alone.

    Big Family Tank — This is a great car for moving lots of people or towing. If you want top of the line interiors look elsewhere, GMC uses a lot of plastic and leatherette. However the interiors are spacious and practical. My 1/2 SLE 4x4 has plenty of power to pull or tow most boats or trailers. Overall the car is what I needed, only complaint is the resale value is low.

    Pros: Power and comfort

    Cons: Price and MPG

    Its A Great Car But There Are Areas That They Can Improve On.... — CIA offical Patrol Vehicle. Looks great in black. Fast with a 2400cc V8 engine. 5.8L with a massive 398bHp thrust to acccelerate. its 4WD transmission is superb for offroad and dirt tracks. With Brembo brakes will stop the car in under 3.5 seconds. 0-65mPh in 5 seconds.

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

    Pros: Its got a high engine capacity with high performance

    Cons: Its not boisted plated so there are no protection from bullets

    You Can Do Most Anything With It — its my mothers car. it is the most amazing car to drive. it has amazing performance and handles great for a huge suv. It eats up alot of gas but it is so much fun to drive because it makes you feel like you own the road.

    Pros: You can fit all your friends into it

    Cons: it eats up alot af gas
