Yukon at a glance
Yukon SLE and SLT models are powered by advanced EcoTec3 engines that deliver more horsepower and torque with the segment’s best V-8 fuel economy.
Yukon Denali’s exclusive 6.2L engine makes the most power in the segment – 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that further enhances efficiency and refinement.
Yukon and Yukon XL share design and powertrain elements. The Yukon XL wheelbase is 3556 millimeters longer (5080 mm longer overall) for greater third-row legroom and more than double the cargo room behind the third-row seat.
For 2016 models, new phone integration technology enhances connectivity and promotes safer driving through Yukon’s next generation IntelliLink system. The new technology allows smartphone users to connect with applications such as navigation, hands-free text messaging, entertainment and news through the IntelliLink display screen.
The Yukon lineup also incorporates technologies to help protect the driver and passengers before, during and after a collision. They include a forward radar system and the segment’s only Front Center Air Bag (models with front bucket seats), which deploys from the inboard side of the driver’s seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants in side impacts.
For 2016, the Enhanced Driver Alert Package on SLT and Denali adds Lane Keep Assist. When activated, it gently steers the vehicle back into its lane when it detects the driver is inadvertently leaving the intended lane of travel. The package also adds IntelliBeam headlamp technology, which automatically turns on and off the vehicle’s high-beam headlamps according to surrounding traffic conditions. The automatic high beams stay on until the system detects an approaching vehicle’s headlamps or follows a vehicle’s taillamps.
The distinctive Denali models are instantly identifiable by their signature chrome grille and unique exterior appointments, including exclusive high-intensity discharge headlamps. Exterior features comprise Illuminated, power-retractable assist steps and twenty-inch wheels (with 22-inch wheels available).
Moreover, Denali models feature active noise cancelation technology to make the interior quieter.
