Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 GMC Yukon?

The 2019 GMC Yukon is an SUV that can seat up to nine (when equipped with a front bench seat on SLE trim levels). It comes standard with a 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine that pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. A 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 working with a 10-speed automatic transmission is available. The extended-length Yukon XL is nearly 2 feet longer than the regular-length Yukon, and rear- and four-wheel-drive versions of both are offered. Competitors include the Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia.

What's New on the 2019 GMC Yukon?

A new Graphite Edition for the SLT trim level features 22-inch wheels, black assist steps, a black-chrome grille insert, gloss-black accents and GMC's Z85 suspension. A Graphite Performance Edition is also available for the SLT, including the 6.2-liter V-8 and 10-speed automatic, black 22-inch wheels, digital instrumentation, a head-up display, a trailer-brake controller, a 3.23 axle ratio and Magnetic Ride Control.

What Features in the 2019 GMC Yukon Are Most Important?

Shoppers in search of maximum passenger space and cargo room should think about stepping up to the bigger Yukon XL, which delivers on both fronts. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are included with the standard 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, and 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) means your family can stay connected on the go. Available advanced safety features include forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2019 GMC Yukon?

If you're looking for a full-size SUV to tow your family — or a boat or camper — where you need to go, the Yukon can do that job. Downsides include ride quality, handling, cargo room in the regular-length Yukon and a lack of interior differentiation from its Chevrolet siblings. We'd recommend checking out the Expedition, as well, to see which best suits your needs.

Most luxury car I have ever owned.

by Renee's Denali from Abbeville, AL on March 15, 2019

There is plenty of head/leg room to accommodate my 6'7" son. Seats are real comfortable and the engine has a lot of "pep". The ride is smooth and the cabin is quite from outside noise. Read full review

Great car, all the toys!

by malarky4 from Florida on January 11, 2019

We love our car, the color, the toys and the comfort, and the room. The side running boards slide up when you open the door, for comfort of getting into the car. Love it. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
