Full-size SUVs combine the best merits of a truck (intense power, towing capability, ample space for gear) and the coveted passenger space you need when you have a lot of passengers to consider. The full-size SUV market is filled with amazing contenders, and the 2019 GMC Yukon is one of its best according to the experts at U.S. News & World Report, who just named it to their list of the 6 Best Full-Size SUVs for 2019.

“There’s a lot to like about the GMC Yukon. This SUV features an upscale design, comfortable ride, and choice of potent V8 engines, including a standard 355-horsepower configuration,” according to U.S. News & World Report Cherise Threewitt.

The 2019 GMC Yukon offers drivers a choice of four trim levels — SLE, SLT Standard Edition, SLT, and Denali — and the option of two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive.

Standard cabin comforts include tri-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and premium cloth front bucket seats. Helping to keep drivers connected is a standard Built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and the standard 8-inch diagonal GMC Infotainment System is responsive and easy to operate. The Bose premium audio system is also standard.

If drivers need more room for people and cargo, Threewitt suggests the 2019 GMC Yukon XL model, which is equipped with a long-wheelbase.

“The cabin materials are also on-par with the best in the class,” notes Threewitt. “On the safety front, standard features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and the Teen Driver safety system.”
