Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

If you’re ready for a big, sturdy SUV, the 2012 GMC Yukon XL 2500 may be the perfect answer. These days, SUVs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from the more compact crossovers to full-size behemoths, and if you’re just driving the kids back and forth from soccer practice, you don’t necessarily need that much SUV. If you do want an SUV that’s truly worthy of the name, that’s versatile enough to do the smaller jobs but do all the big jobs too, take a look at the 2012 GMC Yukon XL 2500.

The Yukon XL SUV is a big, reliable vehicle. It’s got as much space as you’re likely to need, unless you’re transporting an army. With seating for up to nine and an enormous cargo area, you’re not going to fill this SUV up very fast, and with massive towing capacity, the 2012 GMC Yukon XL is ready for any task you have prepared for it.

Of course, the Yukon XL SUV makes a fine family vehicle when called upon as well. It offers a smooth ride and has an attractive, comfortable interior, so if you want to tow your motorboat out to the country for the weekend, then come back and haul a ton of lumber to your jobsite, you’ve got the vehicle for it right here. The 2012 GMC Yukon XL 2500 comes in either the SLE or SLT trim.
