A Not-So-Average SUV For The Not-So-Average Girl

When I was a young girl, I used to look at my peers and admire the qualities that made them unique. At that time in my life I felt plain and very ordinary. It wasn’t until I started this blogging journey that I realized my own unique qualities. One is my love for cars. Give me anything fast, exotic or large like the 2019 GMC Yukon Denali 2WD XL, and I come alive.

Pricey… But Worth It

Trust me when I tell you that there is nothing ordinary about the 2019 GMC Yukon Denali 2WD XL, which had a starting price of about $70,000 (the model we test drove clocks in at about $78,000). Nowadays, a used model will cost you around $50,000 or less.

Part of what makes this SUV so unique is the “XL” in its name: You can buy the Yukon Denali in its standard length of 204,” or you can get it in XL, which is 20″ longer (224″). Additionally, the XL has 24 more cubic feet of cargo space (39 vs 15) behind the third row).

This BIG and Luxurious SUV is Extremely Fun to Drive

I’m not sure about you guys, but driving a large, rugged, yet luxurious SUV is extremely thrilling. Just getting into it is unique. When you unlock it or open the doors, illuminated power-retractable running boards extend to offer you a step up. Then, the V8 engine with 420 horsepower and 460 torque makes it really powerful and fun to drive. Also, while the Denali XL has the speed that I love, it is super easy to handle. Plus, the cabin is exceptionally quiet. It is definitely more of an EXPERIENCE than just a drive.

Easy to Get in, Comfortable to Drive

Those things I listed above are great, however, when it comes equipped with all of the latest conveniences, you can’t help but get excited. I loved that I could throw on a pair of distressed ripped jeans/booties and easily climb in the beautiful beast without a second thought, due to the illuminated power-retractable assist step.

The legroom in this full-size luxury SUV is real…

Being comfortable when traveling and having enough legroom is very important. I am just under 5’7, and as you can see in the picture below I had tons. I know someone taller will be just as comfortable. The 3rd row is a little less roomy, but I climbed back there with ease. However, someone shorter would be a lot more comfortable, especially when road-tripping. (Leg room: Front seats = 45.3″/2nd row = 39.0″/3rd row = 24.8″)
