2018 Yukon Denali full-size luxury SUV
Yukon Denali’s bold exterior styling holds true to Denali tradition. Attention to precision and detail is second to none, and helps Yukon’s powerful-yet-elegant shape further stand apart in the full-size luxury segment. This detailing can be seen everywhere, from the accents on the standard 20-inch wheels, or even the standard HID projector-beam headlamps with signature LED accent lighting – but it’s especially evident in Yukon Denali’s newly redesigned grille.
Much like the grille used on the new 2018 Terrain Denali, Yukon Denali’s new grille is a work of art in and of itself, and yet another reflection of GMC’s commitment to precision. The horizontal pattern is highlighted with three-dimensional block elements, which were carefully crafted to catch light just the right way, much like a high-end sculpture. Yukon Denali’s interior continues to offer the modern design, upscale appointments, and advanced connectivity expected of a Denali.
Perforated leather-appointed first-and second-row seating, accentuated with French Seam contrast stitching is standard, as are heated and ventilated front seats and heated outboard second-row seats. Throughout Yukon Denali’s interior, you’ll find precision-crafted accents, including both burnished aluminum décor and new Mastique Ash wood trim. Denali drivers are presented with a 4 color head-up display, along with an 8–inch diagonal configurable cluster which allows the driver to see pertinent information as they see fit.
OnStar, along with an integrated 4G Wi-Fi hot spot5, is also standard for a 3 month trial period. Yukon Denali continues to deliver great performance and capability, thanks in no small part to its powertrain. A 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is standard equipment on Yukon Denali, and offers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Advanced features, including direct fuel injection variable valve timing, and Active Fuel Management enable the engine to optimize efficiency, yet provide peak performance when needed most. ■
