Prices for the base Yukon SLE in the standard length start at $49,825 (including a $1,295 destination charge). While pricey, customers get plenty of standard gear for their money, including:
- A backup camera
- 18-inch alloy wheels
- An eight-inch infotainment system
- A Bose audio system
- Automatic climate control
- An optional three-person bench front seat (only available in the SLE trim)
The SLT and the Denali trims round out the Yukon lineup. The SLT, with a starting MSRP of $58,610, comes with everything (except the bench seat option) that's standard on the SLE, plus heated seats in the front two rows, ventilated front seats, leather upholstery and more. SLT buyers have the option of adding the Premium Edition package, which tacks about $4,000 onto the price tag, but adds 22-inch alloy wheels and interior chrome accents.
Upgrading to the Denali trim bumps the Yukon's starting price up to $67,260 and includes everything from the SLT, a lots of chrome, 20-inch wheels, and a long list of driver-alert technologies and infotainment features.
SLE and SLT trims use a 5.3-liter V8 engine that turns out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, while Denali models come with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The smaller engine teams with a six-speed automatic transmission to return at least 15 miles per gallon in the city and 22 mpg in the city, while the 6.2-liter works alongside an eight-speed automatic and nets at least 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.
All Yukon trims are available in either a standard wheelbase or an extended XL trim level that adds 14 inches between the axles and increases the maximum cargo space from 94.7 cubic feet to 121.1 cubic feet. Selecting the XL body adds $2,700 to the price tag. All-wheel drive adds $3,000 to all trims.
