Model Overview: 2020 GMC Yukon XL

The 2020 GMC Yukon XL is a part of the third-gen XL, which was launched by the automaker in 2015. The present-day version is pretty much an unchanged version of this lineup. It has the foundation of a well-designed full-size truck, despite it being a massive, super-performing SUV.

This vehicle comes in three trim levels, namely Denali, SLE, and SLT. Most of these trims are eight-seaters, but the capacity can be expanded to nine in Yukon XL’s SLE trim by adding a bench seat in the front.

Let’s take you through some of its aspects here...


The 2020 GMC Yukon XL's powerful V-8 engines do the job well, however, with displacement. Talking about the larger 6.2-liter model, it is an excellent companion to this hefty SUV. A good dose of contemporariness comes with the available 10-speed automatic transmission. Its standard powertrain is a 355-hp 5.3-liter V-8 engine, which is coupled with a 6-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. 


The larger and heavier 2020 GMC Yukon XLs accelerate seamlessly and unhurriedly. The V-8 engine model is pretty relaxed on the highway. Moreover, you can calibrate both to an all-wheel-drive system. The rear-drive models of this car are capable of towing about 8500 lbs., while the all-wheel-drive models can tow close to 8200 lbs.


The 2020 GMC Yukon XL comes with a navigation-equipped 8-inch touch display, which is easy-to-use and intuitive. As such, you don’t have to point a small icon while driving the vehicle. The touchscreen is as responsive to inputs as that of many smartphones. Also, the interior of the SUV has ample USB ports to charge many smartphones at a time.

Safety Features

The 2020 GMC Yukon XL has delivered an excellent performance in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) test. It comes with a suite of driver-assist technologies as standard in all trim levels. However, the base trim level may have a few compromises. Forward-collision warning, low-speed automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, as well as rear cross-traffic warning are some of the key safety features available in the 2020 Yukon XL.

If you are looking for a spacious, well-equipped, and high-performing SUV, then you should consider going for the 2020 GMC Yukon XL. In fact, the mid-level SLT trim is most recommended. You can visit Kelly Auto in Emmaus, Easton, and Allentown for more information about the car.
