In addition to its many luxurious features, the 2018 GMC Yukon is designed to deliver superb full-size SUV performance. Whether you’re hauling your family around town, towing a boat or loading up for a camping trip, the GMC Yukon offers power, handling and towing capability that you can rely on.
The 2018 GMC Yukon is equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Even with this brawny engine, the Yukon still manages an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway.* That’s because the Yukon’s V8 is built with Advanced Direction Injection, Active Fuel Management™ and Variable Valve Timing technologies to maximize both efficiency and power.
For even more impressive output, you can opt for the Yukon Denali, which features a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with an available 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers an EPA-estimated 22 mpg on the highway.*
Available in 2WD and 4WD configurations, the 2018 GMC Yukon is characterized by smooth and confident handling. To accomplish this, the Yukon utilizes a StabiliTrak® electronic stability control system that improves control by adjusting braking and torque during tight maneuvers. Electric power steering and tires specially designed to provide a high-quality ride and improved stopping capability enhance power even more. The Yukon is also built with an automatic locking rear differential that can send power to one rear wheel to improve traction on treacherous surfaces.
Even when it’s towing a large load, the 2018 GMC Yukon is built to perform. The 2WD Yukon’s standard trailering capacity is 6,500 pounds. When it’s equipped with the HD Trailering Package, that capacity soars to 8,500 pounds. The 4WD Yukon can tow up to 8,100 pounds. Whatever your Yukon’s configuration, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control help you easily pull a trailer on inclines and keep it under control. An available Integrated Brake Controller allows you to precisely control your trailer’s brakes.
Behind the wheel, you’ll be thrilled by the 2018 GMC Yukon’s powerful engine, carefully engineered handling and sturdy towing capability. If you’re looking for a full-size SUV that offers top-notch performance, the GMC Yukon is an excellent choice.
