Size is Everything for the 2019 GMC Yukon XL
For the most part, these models are similar in almost every way. But if you were to park the Yukon and the Yukon XL side-by-side, the difference becomes clear. While they have the same exterior style, the XL model is actually 20.5” longer.
Let’s take a closer look. The extra 20.5” on the Yukon XL more than doubles the amount of cargo space. While the Yukon has a roomy 15.3 cu. ft. of storage behind the third row, the XL offers a total of 39.3 cu. ft. That additional space is sure to come in handy during family excursions — especially if someone decides to bring an extra suitcase or two.
The Yukon XL also boasts more legroom for second- and third-row passengers. In most SUVs, the third row is usually reserved for kids or small-statured adults. But because the Yukon XL is so spacious, third-row passengers have the luxury of stretching out and relaxing.
