The 2019 GMC Yukon XL expertly balances intense power, ample space and impressive trailering capabilities. With available seating for up to nine passengers, and a max trailering capacity of 8,300 pounds when properly equipped, the Yukon XL allows you the space you need for your whole crew and the strength to haul everything you need for work or play.
The 2019 Yukon XL is powered by one of two engines: a standard 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 and an available 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8. The 5.3-liter engine pairs to a six-speed automatic transmission and can generate 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8, alongside a 10-speed automatic transmission, increases the horsepower rating to 420 and the torque to 460.
The power and size of the Yukon XL is easily manageable, thanks to a long list of standard safety features. These include StabiliTrak®, Hill Start Assist, a rear vision camera and front and rear park assist. Available driver assist technologies such as Low Speed Automatic Braking, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning can deliver you greater confidence on the road, alerting you to dangers you might not otherwise notice.
One of the draws of the 2019 Yukon XL for a large family is its advanced infotainment technology. Standard smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ makes it easy to stream music, podcasts or audiobooks using Bluetooth® and the Bose® nine-speaker premium audio system. The 8-inch diagonal touch screen is user friendly and easy to read. The Yukon XL features four available power outlets to keep everyone’s devices at maximum charge.
A well-equipped and comfortable interior complements the Yukon XL’s capable performance. Available heated second row seats keep you toasty on cold days, while the 10-way power driver and front passenger seats make for easy adjustments. The standard 60/40 split-bench rear seat delivers versatile space while the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and tri-zone automatic climate control ensure a luxurious ride.
The 2019 Yukon XL’s striking silhouette is enhanced by black roof-mounted side rails, 18-inch bright machined aluminum wheels, black assist steps, heated power outside mirrors and Rainsense™ automatic wipers. Loading cargo is easy thanks to the available hands-free power liftgate.
