Introducing the 2018 GMC Yukon

Powerful, safe, comfortable, reliable - those are the words that come to mind when describing the 2018 GMC Yukon. But that doesn't really begin to cover it. With an interior that's as quiet as a library and available seating that makes up to nine adults comfortable, you and your passengers will feel like you're on vacation when you step inside the Yukon (even if you're on the way to a board meeting).

Style and Luxury
The Yukon is a spacious and powerful full-size SUV that drives like a dream. Whether you're driving your family and their friends, a group of your business associates, or the pee-wee soccer team, your passengers will find plenty to love about the luxurious interior: tri-zone automatic climate control, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, and Bose premium 9-speaker sound system all come standard.

Capability and Performance
While it's the best people-hauler around, the Yukon is no slouch when it comes to hauling gear. When properly equipped, the Yukon can tow up to an impressive 8,500 lbs. That means boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, or the entire team's athletic gear will be a breeze to haul. When you choose the lengthened Yukon XL, you'll have even more legroom and storage capacity!

Driving the Yukon is not only a pleasure, but you can go anywhere with total confidence due to how safety-minded it's been engineered by GMC. It earned a solid 4-star overall NHTSA safety rating and offers a wide range of available high-tech safety features. When you choose a four-wheel drive (4WD) version, the Yukon can grip practically any road surface.

The Yukon offers you two powerful V8 engine choices, both of which are equipped with GMC's Active Fuel Management:
  • 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 - This engine boasts a six-speed automatic transmission producing 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, while offering you up to 23 MPG Highway (RWD)*
  • 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 - This powerful engine is paired with GMC's newly designed, incredibly smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. It produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, and achieves up to 23 MPG Highway (RWD)*

The Yukon comes in several tailor-made trims to suit your style:
  • SLE - This trim comes loaded with 18-inch wheels, rear vision camera system, Front and Rear Park Assist, Tri-Zone automatic climate control, 8-inch GMC Infotainment System, and Bose premium surround-sound system.
  • SLT - When you step up to this trim, you get the addition of perforated leather-appointed, heated, and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, Enhanced Driver Alert Package, hands-free programmable liftgate, keyless open and start, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and power-tilt and telescoping steering column.
  • Denali - If absolute luxury is what you're after, the Denali trim is what you need. It adds the 6.2L V8 engine, signature Denali styling with a unique chrome grille and body accents, 20-inch wheels, new Mastique Ash wood grain accents inside, 10-speaker Bose Premium Centerpoint surround sound system, Active Noise Cancellation, Magnetic Ride Control, Head-Up display, integrated trailer brake controller, heated second-row power release fold-and-tumble seats, and HID headlamps with LED signature lighting.

Yukon XL
If you need even more space, the longer-wheelbase Yukon XL has you covered and then some. Making efficient use of its extended length, the XL's storage capacity can only be described as cavernous. The XL gets you a generous extra 24 cu.-ft. of storage behind the third-row seat over the standard Yukon. Not only that, third-row passengers get almost 10 inches of extra leg room with the XL. For extreme storage and comfort, the XL is an excellent choice.

The 2018 Yukon is positively overflowing with available safety features. GMC has your family's wellbeing in mind, with Rear Seat Reminder (which can help remind you to check the rear seats before exiting the vehicle), GM segment-exclusive Front Center Air Bag, and Teen Driver Mode (which lets you set speed limits and gives you reports on your teen's driving, among other useful features) all coming standard on every Yukon. In addition, more available high-tech safety features are:
  • Front & Rear Park Assist - This available feature monitors objects that are close by to help you park safely.  
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning - This available feature works to help keep you in your lane by gently steering you back into your lane if you drift out of it. It also gives you a visual and audible alert when you depart your lane.
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert - This available feature provides side-mirror alerts to help you avoid a collision with another vehicle in your blind spot. 
  • Forward Collision Alert - This available technology will alert you to a potential crash if it detects that a front-end collision is imminent while following a detected vehicle. It can also alert you if you are following a detected vehicle much too closely.
  • Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking - This available feature can help reduce the severity of a low-speed front-end crash by applying the brakes automatically. It can even help avoid a collision altogether at very low speeds.
