Take a Peek at the New GMC Yukon XL SUV with Simpson Buick GMC


Refined from head to toe (or tow?), the 2017 Yukon XL is a versatile star in the SUV industry’s version of Hollywood. With seating for up to nine passengers and hauling capacity maxing out just over four tons, the new GMC Yukon XL is suited to be the lead in any family flick or action-packed summer blockbuster. And it’s available right now at Simpson Buick GMC, your trusted auto dealership in Buena Park, CA.


Read on to discover the hottest, up-and-coming star in the SUV world: the 2017 GMC Yukon XL.

More Than a Superior Interior

Upon opening the door to the new Yukon XL, you’ll see what full-size luxury was always intended to be. From the authentic aluminum trimmings on the dash, to the precise stitching outlining the seats, to the fold-flat rear bench seats, this is one of GMC’s greatest interiors—and that’s saying a lot since GMC has been at the forefront of comfort and innovation for years.


Drivers will enjoy the veritable ingenuity from the get-go. A heated steering wheel with power-tilt and telescopic functionality, power-adjustable pedals, a large and well-lit center storage console, and an 8-inch Color Touch Radio screen with IntelliLink infotainment make up the core of the front cabin. But that’s not all; those in the front will also find automatic climate controls, triple-sealed doors and a noise-reduction windshield, USB ports, SiriusXM, keyless push-button start, a wireless charging bay, and more.


Second-row and rear passengers are rewarded with some best-in-class legroom—the Yukon XL is 20.4 inches longer than the standard GMC Yukon—thanks in part to available bucket seats and a thoughtfully crafted cargo management system beneath the third row. A Blu-Ray entertainment system with dual 9-inch screens and OnStar 4g Wi-Fi also give passengers a reason to ride in the back. Each row feels separate from the other, making the Yukon XL more car-like than you’d expect upon first glance.

An Exterior that Truly Excels

First impressions are important, and the 2017 Yukon XL makes sure its charismatic demeanor comes off in the best light. The exterior exudes confidence from the bold front grille emblazoned with the iconic GMC stamp, to the LED rear taillights. Available 22-inch chrome wheels, hidden rear wipers, and the revolutionary programmable hands-free power liftgate round make the new Yukon XL as handsome on the outside as it is functional on the inside. So, yes, you can judge this book by its cover.

On the performance side, the 2017 Yukon XL is a full-size SUV that delivers on its full-size promise. Sure, you can use it to transport the soccer team to its road game in Orange County or Los Angeles, but it excels equally in other departments.

With an impressive if not audacious 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, the Yukon XL’s EcoTec3 V8 is a beast in beast clothing. Offering best-in-class MPG (16 city/23 hwy), this eight-cylinder monster uses Active Fuel Management technology to activate and deactivate four cylinders depending on demand. Opting for the available max trailering package gives your Yukon XL the capacity to tow up to 8,300 pounds—that’s a lot of soccer balls—making it one of the more rugged full-size SUVs on the market.


A silky-smooth ride is another department in which the Yukon XL shines; hydraulic engine mounts dampen cabin sway, acoustic-laminated windows keep cabin sounds to a minimum, and the automatic-locking rear differentials detect slippage and keep you from losing control on less-than-ideal terrain. Even the brakes are enhanced, utilizing exclusive DURALIFE™ corrosion protection to reduce “steering shudder” while also improving brake lifespan.
