    The modern full-size SUV has surpassed the minivan in many ways. It offers the same spacious seating options but with a higher towing capacity and just as much or more cargo space as the average minivan. If you need a high tow capacity, plus plenty of room for kids and cargo, a full-size SUV is the way to go. The question is, which full-size SUV model is the best overall? Take the 2022 GMC Yukon XL vs 2022 Ford Expedition MAX, for example––every large SUV is different. While these two models may appear the same upfront, there are important distinctions between the two.

    Both models offer third-row seating, off-road capable trims for weekend adventures, and most importantly, vast cargo space. These two models are designed almost identically to the regular Yukon and Expedition but offer extended cargo capacities; that said, there is a big gap between the Yukon XL and Expedition MAX's cargo limits. The 2022 Yukon XL can carry up to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo, whereas the Expedition MAX's cargo space "maxes" out at 121.5 cubic feet, putting a 23.2-cubic feet gap between them.

    In addition to cargo capacity, there are other factors you'll want to consider before buying the Expedition MAX, including passenger capacity, fuel efficiency, and more. Need more proof that the Yukon XL is the better option? Visit us at Rick Hendrick Buick GMC to test drive this premium SUV and see exactly what we're talking about.

  • Interior

    A vehicle's interior is especially important for full-size SUV owners. The main reason to choose an extra-large SUV is for both passenger and cargo space. It's also good to have convenience tech features to keep the kids entertained.

    Cargo and Passenger Space

    The GMC offers more cargo and passenger space than the Ford does, with a max 144.7 cubic-feet cargo rating, compared to the Ford's 121.5 cubic feet rating. The large gap between cargo ratings is more noticeable than the passenger space differences; however, while subtle, the GMC Yukon XL's higher third-row headroom and legroom ratings add up. The Yukon XL also offers a class-leading center sliding console that can slide back 10 inches and includes storage underneath.

    Entertainment Technologies

    Remember those dual-screen monitors in the back of minivans? The modern full-size SUV includes many of the minivan's best perks, which is why both the 2022 Yukon XL and the 2022 Expedition MAX offer two rear-seat touchscreens. These displays offer games, videos, and entertainment that is also streamable to mobile devices. The Yukon XL's rear monitors are 12.5 inches, which is larger than the Expedition MAX's dual-screen setup.

    Both the GMC and the Ford include optional Wi-Fi connectivity, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and more. The Yukon XL even includes two HDMI ports located on the rear center console, meaning that kids and teens can connect their gaming consoles, Amazon Fire Sticks, and more. Furthermore, the Yukon XL offers two Bluetooth wireless headphones to pair with its rear dual monitors.

    Entertainment Technologies

    The 2022 Yukon XL and the 2022 Expedition MAX both include touchscreen infotainment systems; however, the Yukon has Google built-in, meaning that you have access to over 100 different applications. Your map system is automatically set as Google Maps. Simply sign in to your GM account and Google Account. If you're already an avid Google user, this will give you access to your preferred settings and information. While you can access information in the Yukon via wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, this setup removes the need to connect your mobile device.

  • Safety

    When it comes to safety technologies, both the 2022 Yukon XL and the 2022 Expedition MAX offer many of the same safety perks. No matter which model you choose, you'll gain access to features such as Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and other similar features; that said, the Yukon XL has a few safety technologies that outdo its competition.

    Teen Driver Mode

    A GM-exclusive feature, Teen Driver Mode comes standard across all Yukon XL trims. This teen-oriented safety suite includes a report card that notifies parents of important information; how many times have the driver-assist features been activated? How fast has the teen driver been going? These are factors you can monitor via Teen Driver Mode. Using a pin, guardians can create limits on speed, audio volume, curfew, and more. You can even locate the vehicle via GPS tracking.

    Multiple Camera Views

    Rearview cameras are standard on modern vehicles, but the Yukon XL takes camera views a step further, offering up to 13 different camera views, including a Hitch Guidance view. If you plan on going camping or heading off the pavement for any reason, you can also take advantage of the Yukon XL's low-speed HD Surround Vision camera feature. This technology helps you see large rocks, logs, and other trail obstacles, along with ruts and drop-offs. The Expedition MAX does offer a 360 surround-view camera with a split-screen design, which allows drivers to view two camera angles at once. But the 13-view camera setup is exclusive to the Yukon XL.

    Heads-Up Display

    The Yukon XL's best-in-class Heads-Up Display technology makes driving safer and easier, displaying a multi-colored 15-inch information projection directly onto your windshield. When the Heads-Up Display is activated, you'll see your speed and the current speed limit, audio controls, and even an off-roading inclinometer. You can also access Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert settings straight from your windshield. This allows you to keep your eye on the road while still having control over important stats and settings.

    The 2022 Expedition MAX does not include a Heads-Up Display feature; however, it does include a large, 15-inch infotainment system that offers access to its tech features. Otherwise, the Expedition MAX has a traditional dashboard setup with no Head-Up Display technology.

  • Performance

    While you likely don't need Jeep Wrangler-level off-road capabilities in your family vehicle, you certainly want your full-size SUV to handle minor towing, hauling, and off-roading conditions. Whether you're taking the family camping, going kayaking, or hauling the ATVs, both the 2022 Yukon XL and the 2022 Expedition MAX can help you out.

    Towing Capacity

    When it comes to overall towing capacity, the 2022 Expedition MAX tops the 2022 Yukon XL by 700 pounds. That said, GM's unique towing technologies make it worth the 700-pound loss. The 2022 Yukon XL comes with an optional Prograde Trailering System, along with the optional Enhanced Trailering Technology Package. When you add on both of these features, you'll gain the following perks:

    • Hitch Guidance with Hitch View – A towing technology feature that provides a direct, top-down view of the Yukon's hitch with alignment guides.
    • In-Vehicle Trailering App – GM's trailering suite that provides access to Pre-Departure Checklists, Custom Trailer Profiles, Trailer Brake Light Tests, and more.
    • Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert – Just like regular Blind Zone Alert, but works with your trailer. This technology works with multiple trailer sizes and types.
    • Trailer Camera Provisions – Several trailer-friendly camera views, including a Transparent Trailer View, an Inside Trailer View, and more.

    These are just some of the trailering technologies that come along with these packages. In comparison, the Expedition MAX includes a backup assistance camera and Trailer Blind Spot Monitor; however, it does not include the other aforementioned trailering features that the Yukon XL offers.

    Off-Roading

    Both of these competing models offer an available off-roading trim. The Yukon XL offers the AT4, and the Expedition MAX has the Timberline. You'll find terrain mode selection features on both models, along with off-road suspension and optimal ground clearance. Furthermore, both models include important off-roading technologies such as Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. When it comes to heading off the pavement, both the 2022 Yukon XL and the 2022 Expedition MAX are excellent choices.
