Expert Quotes:

Compared to the regular-wheelbase Yukon and Denali, the XL versions are 20.4 inches stretchier stem to stern, have 26.4 cubic feet more max cargo space, and give adult third-row passengers a fighting chance at comfort with nearly 10 inches more legroom.
Car and Driver

The ride for all of the vehicles was impeccable, whether in two-wheel-drive, four-wheel-drive, or auto, which acts like an all-wheel-drive system by monitoring the vehicle's performance and sending power where it's needed.
Motor Trend

Inside, the Yukon does its best to live up to GMC's "Professional Grade" logo.
AutoGuide

Upgraded upholstery quality, improved dash and door panels, an 8-inch touchscreen display and GMC's IntelliLink smartphone integration align the new Yukon interior with the classy offerings of Ford and Toyota competitors.
Edmunds

The Yukon’s third seat is barely useable even for small kids. Blame the solid rear axle, which prevented engineers from carving out any legroom.
Automobile

To call the new Yukon's interior an improvement over the previous model is to engage in a considerable amount of understatement. It's not that the last Yukon's cabin was poorly executed, but rather that the new one is close to brilliant.

Leather upholstery, particularly in Denali models, ascends to luxury territory, while the real aluminum and wood trim makes a further claim to luxury status. Even in less-optioned models, overall fit and finish of the cabin is solid and tidy.

A great deal of effort went into quieting the cabin of the new Yukon, from special exterior design concerns to available active noise cancellation; even with the electronic aids, however, the cabin of the Yukon is quiet, allowing easy conversations at normal indoor volumes.

The second-row gains noticeable leg room in the 2015 Yukon, while the door opening is slightly larger, making access easier. The third-row area remains somewhat compromised, with very little rise and, in standard wheelbase versions, very little leg room. The Yukon XL improves third-row leg room substantially, but the seats are still best reserved for children or smaller adults.

Cargo and payload capacity are both very good, as you'd expect of a truck-based full-size SUV. Yukon XL models offer a huge rear cargo bay with 38.9 cubic feet behind the third row, 76.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and 121.1 cubic feet behind the first row. The standard-wheelbase Yukon still offers plenty of space, however, with 15.3 cubic feet behind third row, 57.6 cubic feet behind second row, and up to 94.7 cubic feet behind the front row.

 

Conclusion

Improved materials and more efficient use of space expand the utility of the 2015 GMC Yukon.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
