(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The 2012 GMC Yukon XL 1500 is a full-size SUV with plenty of character and impressive features to impress. Based on the popular Chevrolet Suburban, the Yukon shares a lot of traits with its older sibling. Available in three trim levels and with two powertrains, the Yukon has no trouble keeping up with the competition on the road. For many people, the enormous cargo capacity is another Yukon trait that makes this vehicle worth taking a look at. Overall, the Yukon XL 1500 is a good choice for anyone that doesn’t mind spending at the gas pumps to get plenty of style, space, and power.
