2018 GMC Yukon Walk Around

Still unabashedly boxy-shaped like its predecessors, the Yukon boasts chiseled styling, highlighted by cleanly conservative body lines. Cutting down on curves, GMC manages to give the Yukon a sense of flair, without making it seem trucklike.

SLE and SLT trim levels differ little visually. Swept-back headlights complement the boxy grille. Large LED taillights dominate the simple, squared-off rear end.

Every Yukon conveys a look that suggests a comparatively high-end vehicle. For better or worse, the GMC Denali is ladled with an abundance of chrome.


Yukon cabins are handsome and luxurious. Regular-length Yukons aren’t as spacious as might be expected.

Deliciously curvaceous and carlike, the symmetrical dashboard looks like it might belong inside a luxury-level sedan. An 8.0-inch touchscreen sits high, above logically laid-out controls that convey a hint of truckiness. Easy and quick to use, the infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

SLT and Denali editions feature impressively-grained leather upholstery. Soft-touch materials abound, even in SLE trim.

All seats are comfortable. While the second row gives two passengers some elbow room, it’s wide enough to accept a third rider, at least for shorter trips. In standard-wheelbase Yukons, the third row is best for youngsters. In contrast, the XL provides ample stretch-out space as well as 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room. With its third row upright, cargo volume is only 15.3 cubic feet in the regular-size Yukon.

Relatively high liftover can make cargo-loading a bit of a chore. Folding second- and third- row seatbacks expand cargo space to almost 95 cubic feet in the standard Yukon, versus 121 cubic feet in XL models.
