    Not everyone enjoys the feeling of driving an obnoxious truck on an everyday basis, and while minivans are convenient for getting the family where they need to be, most would confess they just aren’t the flashiest option for your next ride. Looking at the 2019 GMC Yukon XL vs 2019 Chevy Suburban gives drivers a choice they never knew they had by providing safe, comfortable, powerful, and convenient vehicles that deliver all the best of trucks and minivans with that signature SUV charm.

    The interesting thing about these models is that they are practically twins when it comes to their basic stats. Their performance potential and utility are exactly the same from horsepower to cargo space, but the major difference is their target audience.

    Chevy and GMC have a long history of playing copycat with their major vehicles, but they both have very different ideas about who will be driving these vehicles. Chevy is known to be the masters of the average driver whose greatest desire is to assure they have a vehicle that the everyday commuter will love. GMC is known for its singular focus on larger vehicles such as trucks and SUVs, and have delivered some of the best options in these categories for years. Both of these have had success in building impressively loyal fan bases.

    The 2019 Chevy Suburban is as straightforward as its name suggests with the perfect setup for the everyday family, while the 2019 GMC Yukon XL is a little more complex with a stunning mix of refinement and boldness that makes drivers feel like royalty while on the road. Neither choice will disappoint when push comes to shove, but the basic idea is that those who want things to stay the same go for the suburban, but those who wish to elevate their life will find the 2019 Yukon XL more their style.

  • Utility

    Utility is something no driver should have to live without in their SUV, and with it comes to the 2019 GMC Yukon XL and the 2019 Chevy Suburban the only limitations when it comes to space is your imagination. Both of these are some of the largest models of SUVs available and they have the exact same dimensions measuring to be 224″ L x 81″ W x 74″ H.

    Holding up to eight passengers the 2019 Yukon XL and 2019 Suburban is a shining example of the more the merrier as it makes room for anyone and everyone. Those that need to accommodate eight people will still have a hearty 39.3 cu.ft of cargo space to work with, but altogether these two can manage up to a massive 121.7 cu.ft of space for you to utilize as you please. Accessing this space is also made simple with tumble second-row seating, power fold third-row seating, and a hands-free liftgate that opens the trunk with a light kick of the foot. With easy access and nearly endless flexibility with the seating arrangements, these two can adapt to even the most intrepid lifestyles.

    On top of the general cabin space, there are also a few other areas throughout the cabins that are useful for storage. Smaller compartments can be found in order to secure smaller items. For example, the center console is just spacious and deep enough to fit items as a laptop or some important folders so that you can work on the go. There is also a hidden area behind the infotainment system that is perfect for your wallet or phone and it even comes with a USB port.

    Looking at the other innovative features these trucks offer you will find items such as keyless entry and push-button start. This makes accessing the vehicle as easy as it can get by not even having to touch your keys.

    So whether you have a big family in dire need of a vacation, want to get started on that big DIY project you have been putting off, or just like knowing that you are ready for anything life throws at you, then the 2019 GMC Yukon XL and the 2019 Chevy Suburban are both ideal models for you.

  • Power

    It should be common sense that the bigger the vehicle the more power it needs to operate smoothly, and considering both the 2019 GMC Yukon XL and the 2019 Chevy Suburban need enough power to accommodate up to eight passengers the engines they offer are brilliant, to say the least. In fact, these models share exactly the same options.

    The Standard engine for the lower level trims for both models is a 5.3L V8 that pairs well with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine delivers a reliable 355 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque that manages an EPA rating of 22 MPG on the highway. Those looking for the most balanced and affordable model will find this to be the best option on the market.

    Those who desire a bit more from life and truly wish to get the most out of these models will want to invest in the higher trim level, the 6.2L V8 is what will provide you with the most versatility. This engine comes paired with a swift 10-speed automatic transmission and boasts 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This is also the engine that will produce the max towing potential of 8,300 pounds for both models.

    While these engines should be enough to impress, the 2019 GMC Yukon XL and the 2019 Chevy Suburban are also ideal for dealing with any terrain and weather conditions. With automatic locking rear differential for unsteady surfaces, a two-speed transfer case for adaptability when it comes to weather and terrain with an easy turn of a knob, and corrosion-resistant Duralife brake rotors that will outlast twice the typical lifespan of other rotors available on the market, nothing will stand in your way when behind the wheel of these models.

    So if you want a vehicle you can trust to be safe and powerful, both are able to push the limits of what is possible on and off the road.
