The GMC Yukon XL is one of the biggest SUVs out there, and one of the most comfortable ways to haul eight people and all of their stuff. It's becoming a niche segment, but the Yukon XL is still a major player. That's why it's been heavily revised for 2015 to make it more luxurious, more comfortable and more efficient.

What's New for 2015

Like all other full-size GM SUVs, the Yukon XL gets a new look and numerous mechanical refinements. Engines are a 5.3-liter V8 engine producing 355 horsepower, or a 6.2-liter with 420 horsepower on the top Denali trim.

Choosing Your GMC Yukon XL

A six-speed automatic transmission carries over, and the most fuel-efficient version is rated at 16/23 mpg. Rear-wheel drive is standard, a full-time four-wheel drive system is optional. Seating for nine is available, but most versions seat seven or eight.

Buyers choose from three trim levels:

SLE

The base SLE starts at $50,030. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, a backup camera, front and rear parking sensors, Bose audio system, a 110-volt outlet and an 8-inch touchscreen with GMC's IntelliLink multimedia interface, tri-zone automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers. Four-wheel drive adds $3,000. Twenty-inch wheels are optional, as is a heavy duty trailering package, polished exhaust tips and 22-inch wheels. The Driver Alert Package adds forward collision and lane departure warning, and the safety seat alert system. The Convenience Package adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power adjustable pedals and a power tailgate. A 40-20-40 split front bench seat is a $250 credit and raises seating capacity to nine.

SLT

The SLT starts at $58,430. Included are features such as leather upholstery, cooled front seats and heated first and second rows, power fold-and-tumble second- and third-row seats, power tailgate, keyless entry and start, heated steering wheel with power adjustments, blind spot warning, cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert and a seat-mounted warning system. Other options include 20-inch wheels, trailer towing package, 22-inch wheels, power sunroof, second-row bucket seats, adaptive cruise control, navigation system and a BluRay rear entertainment system.

Denali

The Denali, a luxurious rig that rivals its cousin the Cadillac Escalade ESV, kicks off at $66,375. The 6.2-liter V8 is the only engine. Twenty-inch wheels are standard, as is navigation, 10-speaker Bose audio system, active noise cancellation, power sunroof, second-row bucket seats and magnetic ride control. Denali models also add a unique front-end treatment and interior trim compared to the SLT. Twenty-two inch wheels are optional, as are power retractable running boards, adaptive cruise control and a second-row bench seat. The Touring Package adds the sunroof, chrome wheels, head-up display and a BluRay rear entertainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

Only the Denali feels like an SUV costing more than $60,000, thanks to better interior materials and a stronger powertrain. It's worth going for if you're going to spend this much money.
