Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
With the all-new 2015 GMC Yukon around the corner, the 2014 model carries over virtually unchanged except for a new exterior paint color – Deep Indigo Metallic. The slow-selling hybrid version has officially gotten the ax, and the 2500 3/4-ton model has also exited the lineup.
The 2012 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL receive some minor upgrades and equipment. A heated steering wheel is now available on SLT trims (except for 2500 models), and heated front seats are made standard on all SLTs. A third-row screen is added to Yukon XL models with the rear-seat DVD entertainment package, and trailer sway control and hill start assist are added to the StabiliTrak stability control system. The Denali trims gain side blind zone alert as standard equipment.
New for 2010 is OnStar 8.2 with long range remote and traffic control, a center console-mounted USB port and enhanced battery charger for some handheld devices. Under the Yukon's hood, the 5.3-liter V8 is now E85 compatible, while the big Yukon Denali's 6.2-liter V8 gains Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation. Other mechanical changes include a new 3.08 rear axle on Denali for improved fuel economy and an available two-speed transfer case on four-wheel-drive models.
Content levels increase across the board with a new six-speed transmission standard on all trims. New options include Bluetooth hands-free communication, a rear back-up camera with rearview-mirror view screen and a third-row DVD system. Exclusive to the Denali are optional heated and cooled seats and the Side Blind Zone Alert system.
The GMC Yukon is a full-size, 3-row SUV that is the sibling to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. 2014 marks the last model-year for the current version ahead of the completely revamped 2015 Yukon. Because of this, the 2014 lineup will have a shorter production run. Though an all-new model is in the works, the current GMC Yukon still offers a lot of vehicle for the money. With seating for up to nine, an extended-length version available and 4-wheel drive (4WD) also an option, the Yukon and the larger Yukon XL hold their own against rivals such as the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada. When dressed in premium Denali form, the Yukon can even give a Cadillac Escalade a run for its money.

"So far so good. Have had a problem with the sunroof leaking a couple of small drops in full pressure car washes like PDQ. Other than that, it has been flawless. The 6.2 liter V-8 is so strong and I can't wait to tow something! Pretty sure I am faster than a lot of cars out there with this thing. The only thing I would change is having true HID zenon headlights like the Escalade. Not sure why GM decided not to include those in my $58K vehicle. I suppose that is why you pay $10-15K more for the Escalade. Interior room is awesome, the folding back seat even can handle three adults (smaller ones anyway) for small road trips. A recent road trip loaded to the max with gear and four people proved to me why I bought this truck in the first place. It swallowed everything I put in there, including three coolers and luggage for four plus all my camping equipment. Now that I have had this in the snow, I am really impressed. With the all wheel drive, it gives you a lot of confidence, even with the 20" factory rims. Despite being a Yukon, and where I live, there are a lot of them, it gets a lot of looks. I was looking at the Infiniti QX56, Range Rover Sport, Cadillac Escalade, BMW X5, and the Mercedes Benz GL and in the end, I found the Denali to be the best value for my money. The options that cost me a lot more money on the other trucks I very easily can live without. The only part that scared me a little was the resale value after I bought this new, but I plan on running this thing until the wheels fall off. I really am happy with this truck, it has truly lived up to all my expectations. I finally bought my dream truck and I am very satisfied."

"Expensive, but totally worth the money. This is my second one I've owned. I'm selling it to purchase a new one. Still looks as good as it did the day I drove it off the showroom floor. Amazing. Don't let anyone tell you a Tahoe or a Yukon is the same thing. Nothing compares to the Denali!"
