One of two biggest models from General Motors will come next year as 2018 GMC Yukon XL and it will more than likely continue without bigger modifications. This is a long-wheelbase version of the well-known Yukon full-size SUV, which is present for more than 25 years on the market. It is closely associated to the renowned Chevrolet Suburban, sharing pretty much the very same mechanical characteristics. The current model remains in its 4th generation, which exists for about 2 years. The most recent version of this full-size SUV was available in 2015, so it is basically for sure that the 2018 Yukon XL will continue without larger changes. It will still be pretty fresh and we expect its arrival late in the year.
