2019 GMC Yukon Walk Around

Chiseled design work conveys a sense of elegance that corresponds to the Yukon’s hefty sticker price. GMC’s version boasts curvier lines than Chevrolet’s Tahoe. Yet, little is done to conceal the Yukon’s overall boxy profile.

Swept-back headlights work with a large, prominent grille to intensify front-end appearance. At the rear, little difference can be seen between the Tahoe and Yukon. Rectangular taillights flank a big, boxy tailgate.

Denalis, in keeping with their reputation, wear more chrome. Nearly three-fourths of Yukons sold have been Denalis.


Though massive on the outside, GMC’s Yukon isn’t quite as spacious as some crossover models. The curvy, symmetrical dashboard would seem appropriate for a high-end sedan.

With either a bench or captain’s chairs in the second row, most adults should feel comfortable. Rear-seat occupants can expect a snug experience, unless they’re inside the considerably longer XL version.

Cloth upholstery is standard in the base model. Other Yukons get leather. Denalis feature simulated wood accents. Even lesser models use soft-touch materials and stitched surfaces.

GMC’s excellent infotainment system, with a high and prominent 8.0-inch touchscreen, includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

With third-row seatbacks upright, cargo space in the standard-length Yukon is more limited than expected. Fold the second and third rows flat, and volume grows to 95 cubic feet – but 121 cubic feet in a Yukon XL. Accommodations are more comfortable in an XL, but it’s a massive vehicle to maneuver.
