Contributing Editor -

Now entering its third year in current form, the full-size Yukon holds fast to its traditional SUV values: uncompromising size, power, and capability. Add to that its abundant features and thoroughly modern design, and it’s obvious why the Yukon remains as relevant as ever.

What's New for 2017

The Yukon gets some equipment revisions for 2017, starting with a newly standard Teen Driver feature that lets parents track driving habits. Active front aero shutters are new. Heated and ventilated front seats are now are standard with SLT trim. The rear infotainment system receives digital headphones and an additional USB port. Low-speed automatic braking now is available.

Choosing Your GMC Yukon

Most Yukons are powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine that generates 355 horsepower. The line-topping Denali get its own 6.2-liter V8, whipping up 420 horsepower. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission and can be paired with four-wheel drive. Low-range gearing is standard on the 4WD Denali and optional on the other trim levels. Towing capacity reaches 8,500 pounds, thanks in part to a standard locking rear differential.

Fuel economy with rear-drive and the 5.3-liter V8 is estimated at 16 mpg in city driving and 23 mpg on the highway. Four-wheel drive lowers the highway figure by 1 mpg. With its 6.2-liter V8, the Denail gets an estimated o15/22 mpg (city/highway) with rear-drive, and 15/20 mpg with four-wheel drive.

The Yukon's third row folds completely into the floor, and a front bench remains available in case you need nine-passenger seating. Cargo space totals almost 95 cubic feet with all seats folded, or 15.3 cubic feet with all seats up.

As before, the Yukon is offered in three trim levels:

SLE

For $49,725 (destination charge included), the SLE comes with premium cloth upholstery, power front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, remote keyless entry, automatic rain-sensing wipers, and remote start. You also get a premium Bose nine-speaker sound system and GMC's IntelliLink infotainment interface. The available Driver Alert package adds lane keeping assist, forward collision alert, automatic braking, and a vibrating safety alert built into the driver seat. There's also a Convenience package with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, and a hands-free power liftgate. A front bench seat is optional. Four-wheel drive adds $3,000.

SLT

Builds on the SLE with additional safety features, including rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, and automatic high beams. You also get a perforated leather interior with heated and ventilated front seats, driver memory, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, and ambient lighting. Both the second the third rows fold at the touch of a button. The Sun, Entertainment and Destination package adds a sunroof, navigation, and a rear entertainment system. Individual options include second-row captain's chairs, adaptive cruise control, and an upgraded alarm system. Prices starts at $58,510.

Denali

Topping the lineup, the $67,160 Denali gets the 6.2-liter engine and an adaptive magnetic suspension (Magnetic Ride Control). Standard equipment includes a unique grille, 20-inch wheels, a trailer brake controller, and high-intensity-discharge headlights. The interior receives a digital instrument panel, a 10-speaker Bose Centerpoint surround-sound system, active noise cancellation, a head-up display, and second-row captain's chairs. Navigation also is standard. The Denali's Open Road package comes with a sunroof and a rear entertainment system. Standalone options include power entry steps and 22-inch wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

Judging by the level of standard equipment, there's no such thing a basic Yukon. By most standards, even the mid-level SLT qualifies as a luxury SUV. The Denali takes yet another sizable step upward; but in our view, the SLT version provides the best overall value.
