The 2017 GMC Yukon Denali is a full-size luxury SUV that emphasizes passenger comfort. In addition to providing the performance, utility and versatility you expect from the Yukon, the Denali brings additional luxury for buyers who demand the best.
There’s a reason that the Denali model accounts for more than 50 percent of Yukon sales. The 2017 GMC Yukon Denali (also available in Yukon XL Denali for additional third-row space and a significant jump in cargo room) starts at an MSRP of $65,965. The 2017 model year brings additional upgrades including the Teen Driver feature that helps promote safer driving, an upgraded GMC IntelliLink® system, a Head-Up Display, blue ice interior lighting, an upgraded rear seat entertainment system and front active aero shutters for improved aerodynamics.
The Denali is easily spotted with the available 22-inch ultra-bright aluminum wheels and a slew of standard equipment including chrome accented assist steps, heated and power folding exterior mirrors, High-Intensity Discharge with IntelliBeam® headlights and Rainsense™ wipers. A power liftgate is also standard.
Inside, the cabin is quiet thanks to Active Noise Cancellation and is loaded with luxury including perforated leather upholstery with ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, the GMC IntelliLink Navigation system with eight-inch touch screen, an eight-inch customizable driver display, remote start, wireless phone charging, a heated steering wheel and 10-speaker Bose® audio system. The full suite of OnStar® services including 4G LTE and Wi-Fi® hotspot are also included. The Yukon Denali is also extremely versatile with second and third row seats that fold flat, as well as a cargo management system, to accommodate up to 94.7 cubic feet of cargo.
Powering the Yukon Denali is a direct-injected 6.2-liter V8 engine with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, and paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to Active Fuel Management that can shut off up to half of its available cylinders, the Yukon Denali can still manage up to 22 mpg highway. You can choose from rear-wheel drive or the traction enhancing four-wheel drive system. The Yukon Denali also benefits from Magnetic Ride Control™ that quickly reacts to changing road conditions, enhances traction and steering, and minimizes body roll.
Both the rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions of the 2017 Yukon Denali were given a 5-Star Frontal Crash and Side Crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Yukon Denali is standard with a rearview camera, and a wide range of advanced features including Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking Forward Collision Alert and the Safety Alert Driver Seat. Adaptive Cruise Control is also available.
Kelley Blue Book says, “If you need no-compromises hauling and towing ability, along with a no-compromises, first-rate interior, the…Yukon and Yukon XL are just the ticket. That goes double for the high-end Denali models.”
