ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — If the regular-length GMC Yukon, as large as it is, isn’t burly enough for dragging your family and its toys for off-the-beaten-path recreation, GMC is here to help.
GMC offers an extra-large stretched version, cleverly tagged the XL. Even with the third-row seat occupied, there’s a gargantuan 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space for luggage and other ancillary stuff.
Or drop down that rearmost seat and there’s a whopping 121.7 cubic feet available for a weekend Home Depot project.
GMC’s Yukon holds down the Goldilocks position between the Chevrolet Tahoe/ Suburban and ultra-luxe Cadillac Escalade in General Motors’ triumvirate of mechanically similar, truck-based SUVs. It’s a step above the Chevy with classier exterior and cabin equipment and furnishings, yet not as flashy (and costly) as the Caddy.
