The GMC Yukon and its extended-length variant, the Yukon XL, are the mechanical twins of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, respectively. The upscale Yukon Denali, meanwhile, is so plush that it you might mistake it for these models’ luxury sibling, the Cadillac Escalade. Built on a rugged frame, they trade sedan-like efficiency and manners for towing and off-road capability.
New Features and Revisions
The 2019 GMC Yukon adds an aggressive-looking Graphite Edition for the mid-grade SLT trim that includes 22-inch wheels, blacked-out aesthetics and unique suspension. Building on that is the Graphite Performance Edition, which includes the more powerful 6.2-liter V8, 10-speed transmission and magnetic ride control that were formerly reserved for the top-line Denali edition.
