There are four trim levels for the 2012 GMC Yukon XL SUV including the SLE 1500, SLT 1500, SLE 2500 and SLT 2500. Each trim lists different sets of features that set one apart from the rest. The SLE 1500 is considered as the most advanced and most spacious and this trim offers buyers with excellent cargo capability, thanks to the addition of the first, second and third row seats.

On the interior, passengers will find different technological features and innovations like Bluetooth, provision for seating for eight passengers and leather appointed seats. The ride quality is extremely smooth and subtle, with the use of the active fuel management system and coil over shock front suspension. The SLE 2500 on the other hand is the go-to trims if the requirement is for heavy duty works and applications like towing and hauling. This trim can accommodate 9600 lbs when towing and also offers excellent cargo space through its first to third row seats. Top features to expect on this trim include USB port, XM radio and heated side mirrors. The SLT 2500 is on top of the heap and leaves nothing to spare.
