I’m in the market for a used SUV, and I want something big. What’s the best year for the GMC Yukon XL Denali?

Knowing exactly what you want definitely makes the hunt for a used SUV easier! The best year for a used GMC Yukon XL Denali is 2017.
Like its slightly smaller sister, the 2017 GMC Yukon XL Denali earned solid safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and features a 6.2-liter V8 engine.
As the highest trim of the Yukon XL, the Denali approaches the $70,000 range—even when it’s used—but for that price, you’ll get the GMC-exclusive 420-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine. This trim also comes with Magnetic Ride Control, a set of self-adjusting shock absorbers that can take on a variety of road conditions and continually adjust to provide a smooth ride. Plus, the Yukon’s luxury interior is comfortable, even for long road trips!
