If the 2024 GMC Yukon and the long-wheelbase Yukon XL seem very similar to the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, it’s because they are. They are cut from the same giant sheet of cloth. The full-size Yukon is as big as its Chevy counterparts, providing the same passenger and cargo hauling capabilities, but it is designed to portray a fancier lifestyle. There are three rows of seats inside and it can accommodate up to eight passengers. The base engine is a 355-hp V-8, but a larger 420-hp V-8 is also available.

For the best fuel economy, choose the turbo-diesel inline-six with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg. Despite their rather luxurious top-trim pricing, even the Denali and Denali Ultimate versions of the Yukon cannot match the opulence illustrated by the Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. Instead, the Yukon and Yukon XL shine in their mid-range SLT and AT4 trims as slightly elevated variants of their Chevrolet siblings.

2024 GMC Yukon Denali

Available in various trims ranging from the base SLE to the luxurious Denali Ultimate, the Yukon and its long-wheelbase variant, the Yukon XL, can accommodate up to eight passengers. However, opting for the popular second-row captain’s chairs will reduce the seating capacity to seven. Denali models boast a unique interior design featuring a wood-trimmed dashboard and hand-stitched leather upholstery.

An innovative power-sliding center console is available in SLT and AT4 models (standard in the Denali), allowing the driver to move the console back and forth on a 10-inch track. This feature creates space for larger items in the first row, such as a purse or backpack, while also providing hidden cubbies to store smaller items out of sight. The Yukon offers generous cargo capacity, especially in the XL model, which provides a remarkable 145 cubic feet of maximum cargo space with all seats folded.

Similar to its previous generation, the 2024 Yukon is available with two V-8 engine options: a 355-hp 5.3-liter and a more powerful 420-hp 6.2-liter. In addition to these gasoline engines, GMC also offers a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-six that delivers an impressive 460 pound-feet of torque.

For those seeking an off-road-oriented experience, the AT4 model is available. It boasts a two-speed transfer case, 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, underbody skid plates, and an optional air suspension that can provide up to two additional inches of ground clearance. In our testing of a fully loaded Denali model equipped with the 6.2-liter V-8, we recorded a zero-to-60-mph time of 6.0 seconds and observed significantly improved braking performance compared to the previous generation model.


The GMC Yukon has a maximum towing capacity of 8,400 pounds. However, this is only applicable to the rear-wheel-drive model equipped with the 5.3-liter V-8 engine. The 6.2-liter Yukon has a slightly lower maximum trailer rating of 8,300 pounds, while the Duramax diesel model is not far behind at 8,200 pounds. If you opt for the four-wheel-drive version, these towing capacities are reduced by 200 pounds across all models.
