The GMC Yukon boasts a bold and stately design, complemented by standard features including LED exterior lighting and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Yukon also offers plenty of functionality thanks to its standard heated side mirrors, auxiliary steps and roof-mounted side mirrors. Upgrade for more options, including a power panoramic sunroof, 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, a hands-free power tailgate and dual exhaust tips with polished tips. Choose the AT4 model for off-road features like custom wheels, attractive red recovery hooks and a front panel designed to optimize off-road performance.


On the inside, the Yukon offers a spacious cabin, exclusive amenities and a host of technological tools. Choose from seats that accommodate seven, eight or nine passengers – all without sacrificing legroom for passengers in all three rows. When it comes to cargo space, the Yukon maxes out at 122.9 cubic feet with all three rows of seats folded. The Yukon XL offers even more space, with 144.7 cubic feet of storage space.

Enjoy comfort and convenience on your daily drive with standard amenities including tri-zone automatic climate control, power lumbar front seats and USB charging ports spread across all three rows, so everyone can keep their phones charged. Upgrade for more amenities, including heated seats, leather seats and a power-sliding center console.

The Yukon also makes connectivity easy with standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone, along with Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and a 10.2-inch touchscreen. Higher trims provide Google built-in functionality for easy access to Google Play streaming services, Google Maps navigation and voice commands from Google Assistant.

Power and performance

Power your Yukon with one of three engine options. The standard 5.3-liter V8 produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, while the available 6.2-liter V8 offers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for the 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel V6, which unleashes 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Yukon can tow up to 8,400 pounds. The larger Yukon XL maxes out at 8,300 pounds.

In addition, the Yukon is optimal for exploring nature. The adventure-oriented AT4 trim level provides an additional two inches of ground clearance thanks to its Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system, all while providing a confident ride with Active Response 4WD™.


Every GMC Yukon provides peace of mind on the road with the standard GMC Pro Safety package. This safety suite includes six technology tools, including automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, forward pedestrian braking, the following distance indicator, IntelliBeam® automatic high beams and lane departure warning with lane departure warning. You can choose a higher trim level to enjoy even more smart safety features, including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.
