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

Pros: You can fit all your friends into it

Impressive, Feel, Look And Performance. — I personally prefer the shorter version, but the XL did not make any noticeable difference in handling. The back-up cameras and automatic tilting side view mirrors when the vehicle is in reverse, enhanced the ability to park this big body where ever it will fit without bumping into anything (curbs, other vehicles or any obstacles). Handles excellent in the snow and ice. Great power off-road and surprising acceleration on any road. No special tires, but didn't matter. Loved the handling in the snow and ice. Never lost control or was concerned about sliding off the road. Really nice on highway, smooth ride,almost entertaining to drive with maps viewable during driving or split screen with map and entertainment at the same time. Hauling Capacity! Example: I bought a King sized bedroom set, minus the bed, I was able to make one trip with 2 large nightstands, vanity with mirror, Chest of drawers with all the seats remaining in the vehicle. I never pulled a trailer with it, but it has manual transmission control capability and trailer towing transmission gearing option on the column. Just a vehicle that is adaptable to my needs whether hauling people or furniture.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 6.2L V8, powerful. 19mpg Highway worked great for hauling 7 adults comfortably.  Heated seats and front and rear temperature control.  Front and rear sound system for private listening.  In-Dash and fold down screens for passengers, big and little kids love it. 3rd row removable for hauling and the 2nd row will flip forward for even more space.

Cons: 13mpg city driving. Black exterior and interior (just not my favorite color).  Everybody wants to ride in it or drive it.
