    Expert Rating

    3.1 (Good)
    15 City / 22 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2019 GMC Yukon OVERVIEW

    The 2019 GMC Yukon maintains the traditional sense of what an SUV originally was: a body-on-frame design and heavy-duty drivetrain – but that doesn’t mean that it can’t have a dressed up styling theme and a full layer of comfort and high-tech features. The GMC brand has positioned itself as an upmarket Chevrolet, and the Yukon firmly sustains this hierarchy.

    What's New for 2019

    The 2019 GMC Yukon offers two new option packages on the SLT trim: the Graphite Edition package, which brings a darkened exterior appearance, and the Graphite Performance Edition package, which includes a host of mechanical and feature upgrades.

    Choosing Your GMC Yukon

    The GMC Yukon comes standard with a modern 5.3-liter V8 that features direct injection and cylinder deactivation and is solely mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. All 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque are called upon to move this heavy vehicle, especially when utilizing the upper range of its 8,000-plus-pound towing limit. A larger 6.2-liter with 420 peak hp and 460 lb-ft of torque is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and is available with the new SLT Graphite Performance Edition and the top of the line Denali trim.

    The Yukon is also available in an extended version known as the Yukon XL, with prices rising between $1,400 to $2,400 over the regular Yukon depending on trim level. Stretching over 20 inches longer than the standard-length model, the Yukon XL offers a little bit more leg room for the second-row passengers and a lot more leg room for the third-row passengers. The cargo area behind the third row also increases in volume by 25 cubic feet.

    Fuel efficiency estimates are dependent on the drivetrain and model. The smaller engine with rear-wheel drive achieves an EPA-estimated 15 miles per gallon city, 22 mpg highway and 18 combined. Adding four-wheel drive brings significant hardware yet only reduces fuel economy to 15/21/17 mpg (city/highway/combined). Here, the added mass of the XL model becomes noticeable, as the EPA’s city and combined ratings are each lowered by one mpg. The more powerful powertrain achieves 14/23/17 mpg, 14/22/17 mpg with four-wheel drive, or 14/20/16 mpg on the XL.

    The four-wheel-drive system is optional throughout the lineup for $3,000 and includes an automatically engaging single-speed transfer case. Either transmission includes programming for a Tow/ Haul Mode and buttons for manual gear selection.

    There are four trim levels:


    The base SLE trim begins at $50,795 (all prices include the $1,295 destination charge) and features 18-inch bright aluminum wheels, front and rear park assist, and an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen that's compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, and HD radio. Sound is pumped through a nine-speaker Bose audio system. The driver gets a 10-way power seat, a 4.2-inch driver information display, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Heated mirrors, automatic wipers, and remote start are also noteworthy standard features.

    The Convenience Package is $730 and brings a power tailgate, adjustable pedals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a programmable universal home remote, while the SLE Value Package is $2,430 and includes the features of the Convenience Package and adds 20-inch wheels. The Enhanced Driver Alert Package costs $545 and brings low speed automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and automatic headlights. If towing is the primary reason for purchasing the Yukon, the $580 Heavy Duty Trailering Package features an integrated trailer brake controller, a revised rear axle ratio, and an air leveling rear suspension. On four-wheel drive models, a two-speed transfer case is included.

    SLT Standard Edition

    The SLT Standard Edition is priced from $55,995 and includes the features of the SLE’s Convenience and Enhanced Driver Alert Packages. Standard features include leather seating, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power programmable liftgate, and memory settings for the seat, pedals, and mirrors.

    The Heavy Duty Trailering Package returns unchanged, while an available Open Road Package costs $3,430 and includes a sunroof, navigation, a rear seat drop-down screen with Blu-Ray capability. The Standard Edition Value Package brings the sunroof, second row bucket seats, and 20-inch aluminum wheels for $3,540.


    The SLT trim starts at $58,795 and gains perforated leather front seats with ventilation, a heated steering wheel, heated second row seats, and proximity entry. On the safety front, a blind-spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert are also included, while adaptive cruise control is a standalone option for $895.

    The $3,920 Premium Edition Package adds 22-inch chrome wheels, chrome body side molding, a unique chrome grille insert, and a polished exhaust tip. The Graphite Edition package ($3,070) includes bright 22-inch wheels, gloss black trim, black chrome grille, and body color grille surround, while the Graphite Performance Edition package ($5,995) adds the larger engine and 10-speed transmission as well as magnetically controlled dampers, black 22-inch wheels, the features of the HD Trailering Package, an eight-inch display in the gauge cluster, and a head-up display. The Open Road and Heavy Duty Trailering are also available.


    The range-topping Denali trim starts at $67,895 and sets itself apart with the 6.2-liter engine, a unique front chrome grille, HID headlights, 20-inch wheels, wood trim, an eight-inch driver information display, magnetic ride control, and a head-up display. Meanwhile, the front seats are heated, ventilated, and leather-appointed.

    The optional Denali Ultimate Package ($8,055) brings power side steps, adaptive cruise control, forward automatic emergency braking, a power sunroof, and the contents of the Open Road Package. The $1,000 Denali Ultimate Black Eddition sees 22-inch black wheels, chrome exterior mirror caps, and premium carpet inside.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The 2019 GMC Yukon is attractive with its ruggedness and wide range of capabilities. The vehicle feels most purposeful with the added features of the SLT Trim and the optional adaptive cruise control for those long hauls.
