To explain- I purchased this used with only 10K miles in 2006 for under $30K (Was listed at $52 when new). For the time this was plush, all leather, big capacity for people and cargo. It always got about 16MPG, and at the time with little kids, I needed room more than saving 3-4 MPG on a foreign SUV with tight quarters. The legroom was so good, I can't to this day find the same in a smaller SUV, although I just purchased a Toyota Highlander to downsize as my kids are grown and gone. To be fair, 6 years ago I had to replace the engine at 166K (Blue smoke, dealer said he could not rebuild the engine for under $3900. Bought brand new GMC replacement engine and had it installed for $6000, because I thought that was better than making payments. I'm now at 285K so I have 120K miles on the new engine. A wonderful ride, sluggish when you need to step on the gas on the highway, feels like a pickup truck then. Still for $34K ($28 originally and $6K for the engine) a great deal. Have not needed to replace much, starter, batteries, never needed a brake job! Even now as I sell it, it is pretty nice. Paint held up for 10 years, still shines. Typical GMC with a couple of electrical issues (Seat heater stopped working, big LED bar in back needed to be replaced) but overall glad I had it in my family for a decade.

Awesome

Awesome vehicle. Now has 60,000 miles on it. White with tan Leather. It is a fully loaded Denaili, lots of options. A lot of fun to drive. Great power. Seats are extremely comfortable with plenty of room. Has been very reliable, only thing was the sunroof motor went at 55,000 miles, dealer fixed it at no cost. Gas mileage isn't good only getting 12 mpg but expected with a big V8. Overall great vehicle and Highly recommended.

Love it! I needed a larger vehicle to haul many people and many things around. I can seat nine people comfortably! My front seating area has the optional third seat or the console flips down as an arm rest or acts as a pass through for handing items to passengers in the middle seats. True, the gas mileage is bad, but I like being up off the roadway. I am glad for the auto lock on the keyring which allows me to either unlock just the driver door only or hit it twice to unlock all doors. Seats flip up in third row for additional cargo space. I use every bit of this vehicle and would definitely buy another.

Excellent vehicle for traveling. I have a bad back. Lots of seat adjustments to get comfortable. Lots of room for hauling when necessary. AWD is excellent in the winter. Lots of power for towing. Meets all of my needs. Uses regular gas. Luxurious but also practical when need to haul lumber etc. Will hold sheets of plywood.

We got our Yukon about 10 mos ago. Loved it up until the last 5000 miles. Inside of tires wearing, suspected bent frame. Dealer trying to push it off. Still trying to get resolved. Very comfortable for long trips with a family of 5. We think the cup holders could be improved upon (they did in '07s). Thinking I will have to find different SUV to replace the damaged one we have now. Check out the 4 recalls and 150 service bulletins. Not too impressive for a $50,000 vehicle.

This Yukon gets the best gas mileage I have ever seen in a full size SUV. I am averaging 20mpg in mostly city driving. It is also one of the most comfortable and easy to drive. I have always liked the exterior design. However, the interior dash could use some work which I think they did for the 07's. Overall you can't beat the price, comfort, ride and reliability of an 05 Yukon.

This vehicle is the best bang for it's buck. The Denali has the most to offer for the larger SUV without feeling that floaty truck feeling.Has the most horsepower in it's class,standard options are fulltime AWD,a great Bose 7CD system,heated front and rear seats, overhead rear climate control, XM satellite radio, OnStar, traction stableization system and by far the most comfortable seats of all the SUV'S There are many other complements and I can rattle on with all of the performance and comfort options but if you are in the market for a great SUV and you don't want to compromise on performance, the Denali is it miles above the competition. Take one for a spin, get on the highway and you'll see

Take a peek inside a GMC Yukon, and you'll see one of the worst constructed interiors of any vehicle on the market. The plastics are of horrible quality, the trim is illfitting, the wood is incredibly fake which doesn't look kindly on a $50,000 vehicle, and the controls are shared with such vehicles as the Chevy Cavalier. What has GM come to when it cannot even design an interior correctly? Nevermind the hideous, bulbous exterior and the abysmal fuel economy, I mean, it's not as if global warming is getting worse and worse, lets just go and buy a vehicle that gets 13 mpg. Oh yeah and it's crap to drive too.

I have owned just about every luxury SUV auto available, including Mercedes, and the GMC Yukon Denali is far and away the best SUV vehicle I have driven. The quality gets better every year it seems too, despite a high level each year. My only "wish" would be that it would have selectable AWD vs. 2Wheel drive.

We looked at Escalades, Navigators, Excursions, Expeditions, Tahoes, etc. but really liked the Yukon Denali the best overall.Excellent horsepower, fair fuel milege, very comfortable seating for a family of 4 and gear. If you have the need for more than four then you better get the XL or you will be disappointed.

This is the first full size SUV I've owned and although gas is now $3 a gallon, I love my Yukon. I get around 19 mpg on the highway and 17 in town. The interior is very comfortable for a short person since the gas & brake pedals move forward. I don't feel like I'm sitting right on top of the steering wheel.

Bought the Denali at the end of July. Black, Tan leather; 2nd Row Captain's; 20" EOM Wheels....Loaded! I love this ride, even though my wife is the main driver. I put 20% all around including sunroof and it definately stands out. I have already had a recall with the blower motor on the A/C not keeping the recycling on the "in cab" air going, small issue. Already been on 3 road trips.. Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville. Rides like a dream. The power is there if you need to get on it, but watch the gas. I have ordered the Billet Chrome "GMC" for the grille to get rid of the EOM red. Taking off the red in the rear as well. Looking at purchasing the programmer for HP/MPG All in all... Awesome!

Nice vehicle. Better than I expected. Gas mileage is poor, but I knew this going into purchase. Roomy interior for passengers, but not a lot of cargo space behind third row. Gaps between body panels could be improved upon. Strong engine performance. Only problems to date have been excessive moisture in a front corner lamp and a squeaky driver's door. The dealer replaced the corner lamp and a check linkage on the driver's door.

This is a great vehicle. The gas mileage is bad, but I knew that going in. I have not had any problems with the vehicle. This is a very comfortable ride. With the GMC "you pay what we pay" campaign I was able to finally get the vehicle I wanted. Excellent car, and I highly recommend - just be ready to spend some money on gas.

If you need a large, family car - this is it. We bought it for the 3rd row seat and storage behind it. We tried the shorter version but with the 3rd row up, you had little storage room left. The long version is the way to go. Handles well (braking, cornering, acceleration) for such a big vehicle. Be aware, even with an reasonable foot, it will average 15 mpg hwy and 12 city.

The Yukon has been flawless since we purchased it a year ago. Yes, the mileage could be better, but that's not the vehicles fault. We knew it wouldn't be great. The ride is comfortable, and the performance has been much better than we expected. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who is looking for this style of ride who isn't squeamish about gas mileage.

Replaced a BMW X5 with an '05 Yukon Denali. Very different vehicle. The BMW was excellent, but lacked space. The Denali has plenty of room and is very luxurious. With the GM family pricing it was a no-brainer. A great choice for anyone looking for room and "stealth" luxury and who is not too concerned with gas mileage. Spring for the sunroof/nav/rear DVD package - it's well worth the extra cost.

We are happy with our Denali, and it has surpassed all our expectations. We will keep buying the GMC Denali. We are a family of 7 children and adults. The ride is wonderful, in the front or back of the SUV. The movies are great, the wireless are the bomb as my grandkids called them. We feel safe on the road, sunshine or rain. A plus, we can pull our boat to the lake. This is one SUV that will do it all.

I have always owned a GMC Jimmy/Yukon, and through the years any issues I have had with one-to-the-next has been improved on, such as the interior. When Yukons's first debuted, the interior seemed to be "not completed" with rough edges, exposed door mounts, and open galleys where it looked like it was meant for something. Now to the warranty, after about 40,000 miles it seems to go to pot. from the computer sensor chips to powertrain problems, this last Yukon has been in service 3 times for the same recall. This is why every three years I trade it in.

We test drove 3 vehicles, the Denali, the SRX V6 Cadillac, and the LR3. I kind of preferred the LR3, but the wife likes how "cushy" the Denali is. In truth, the Denali is much more comfortable for driver and passanger. I just like the fact that the LR3 is so tough. Well, it was for her so we got the Denali instead. We love it. 5 days into it and It is awesome. By the way the Cadillac is a piece of junk, to small and no power. also the v6 SRX was going to cost more than my Denali. Our Denali has Sunroof, Nav, and Rear Seat Entertainment. I recommend this package for anyone. The SRX had only a sunroof.

I previously owned a 2001 GMC Yukon which was very nice and rode very well even with 126,000 miles on it! I decided to buy a 2004 in December since the rebates were very good and I absolutely love it! This vehicle has so many improvements from my original vehicle and have 30,000 miles on it without a single problem. I will continue to purchase GMC Yukons as a work and pleasure vehicle for years to come. Drive one today and you will not be dissapointed!

This is my third Yukon, and in some ways, it is the best one. The fuel mileage is good for the size of the vehicle. It's great as far as comfort ane room. I still want the little things, such as the tape player, the little storage compartments that have been available in the past, and the double sunvisor that was in my '03 model. Overall, it's a great car. Keep up the good work, but lower the price, and you would truly have a winner! Yours truly, a happy owner

This is absolutely one of the best SUV's GM has ever built. I have owned a '96, '99, '00, '02, and now a '05. They keep getting better each year. These trucks offer so much room and drive just like a car. The truck is very versatile and will continue to buy these trucks. I put 70,000 miles on it and I swear to God that nothing ever went wrong with it. I treated the truck well and vice versa. I own a mint '86 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, which floats down the road, but this Yukon's ride is pretty hard to beat. Turning radius is sharp and the handling is great. I took a 500 mile trip a couple weekends ago and got 19.8 mpg, cruising at 60 mph. If you are considering an SUV, buy a Yukon.

I've owned a truck of one kind or another since 1972 including Dodge, Ford and Chevrolet. This is my second GMC and by far the best since my Dodge Power Wagon of decades ago. It has the looks, style, power and toys to keep me entertained and safe on the road. The AWD surprised me with its performance in the snow. It has great ground clearance for off road use, but it is more comfortable on the highway than a limo. The enterainment and nav system by Bose is expensiv,e but worth every penny, and its touch screen programming is easy to use. The whole rig seems custom built for my 250 pound frame.

I suffered through 2.5 yrs with a Land Rover Discovery that my wife finally agreed to trade in, and there's no looking back. The Denali is the most comfortable vehicle I've ever driven. The motor is awesome. Even if it wasn't fast, it would be worth it just for the SOUND. For anyone that does a lot of family driving, it's hard to imagine a nicer truck. In addition, it's a real heavy-hauler when it's time for hauling big stuff. It also doesn't hurt that it's the best-looking truck out there. Nice job, GMC.

Enjoy the power, especialy when entering a 75 mph freeway from a fontage road. Spur of the moment braking, worked excellent. Enough room for entire family. Turning radius is sharper than many cars I have owned.

Denali @ its Best

Our Yukon Denali has proven to be an extremely practical vehicle. Whether it be for hauling office materials used in our educational consulting business or escorting the grandsons the Denali is always a pleasure to use. The grandsons particularly enjoy the DVD as the view their favorite programs on long trips.

Terrific Vehicle

I just got the car and it is a blast to drive. The ride is very smooth and yet solid at the same time. The acceleration at any speed is great, it will put you back into your seat. The engine sounds nice at idle and it is barely audible while at speed - perfect! The features that are in this car, such as XM radio, DVD, Navigation, heated seats, power everything, sun roof and soft leather make driving more of an experience than just ride to your destination.

solid and smooth

We looked at the Tahoe and we owned a Durango. This is by far better than both. The ride is exceptional and the interior is amazing. You won't be disappointed.

Yukon has a very high center of gravity: ours fish-tailed and rolled over. No one was hurt but it was totaled. IF they dropped it 3" front and rear it would look more like a station wagon and handle better, with less wind reistance,but look like a latino low rider. Also a recall performed on its ON-Star resulted in a short and caused its battery to run down. This required more than dozen trips to various dealers in order to correctly diagnose & fix.
