The GMC Yukon XL SLE is popular among Uber SUV, Uber Black and private client drivers in New York City for good reason. The Yukon's traditional heavy-duty good looks, luxury finish, spacious interior and reliability has obvious appeal to discerning drivers and wealthy clientele. Adrian of TLCMKT does a brief exterior and interior review of a custom 2015 Yukon XL SLE that has driven over 200,000 NYC TLC miles! The vehicle has obviously been well maintained and still looks brand new. It should be noted NYC Luxury SUV drivers and luxury limo bases usually choose (or require) 1 of 4 popular brands and models - the Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, GMC Yukon and Chevy Suburban (it's interesting to note GM makes 3 of the 4 SUVs (i.e. Ford owns Lincoln)).
We know business is tough for many due the pandemic, but as trips eventually recover some drivers may need to replace their luxury SUV or consider upgrading to one, such as the Yukon, in 2021 or 2022. It should be noted the Yukon recently had a refresh for the 2021 model year and therefore 'newly' used models from 2018, 2019 and 2020 have undergone slightly accelerated depreciation. The tricky thing about purchasing luxury SUVs for the NYC for-hire transportation industry is the year of the car is important as Uber and Lyft's luxury services are now dropping cars more than 5 model years old. Therefore, buying a luxury vehicle at the right price is vital or a driver/fleet may find themselves upside down on a loan (i.e. loan is more than the value of the car) by the time they need to replace the vehicle for a newer model year. At TLCMKT, we help drivers and fleets find the most competitive deals in the market not just related to price, but also incorporating value and quality (i.e. packages a car has, mileage, ownership & accident history, maximizing resale value when selling vehicle and even minimizing and managing maintenance spend).
We hope you enjoy the video and let us know what you think or if you have any questions about driving a Yukon for the NYC TLC industry in the YouTube video comments. Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe out there!
