The Yukon XL Denali delivers improved horsepower, torque, and fuel economy2 for 2015 thanks to its all-new V8 6.2L EcoTec3 engine.
Hill Start Assist technology on the Yukon XL Denali detects when it’s on an incline, and when engaged, holds the brakes for about two seconds—or until the gas pedal is pressed—to prevent it from rolling backward. This feature is particularly effective when towing, giving the driver time to switch from the brake pedal to the gas pedal without rolling.
GMC’s dedication to tireless improvement is evident in Yukon XL Denali’s drive; its smoothest and most solid yet and GMC’s relentless innovation. Greater handling, improved responsiveness, and a quieter cabin are just some of the results.
Coming or going, the Yukon XL Denali exterior epitomizes self-assured capability. Features include:
- Distinct Denali grille
- Denali-specific chrome accents
- Monochromatic exterior appointments
The keyless entry system on the Yukon XL Denali allows you to access all four doors and the rear liftgate when it senses your key fob approaching. When you exit, the vehicle automatically locks within several seconds of the last door being closed.
Yukon XL Denali’s hands free power rear liftgate allows you to adjust gate height settings with a touch of a button. Inside the cabin or out, your key fob opens the gate for easy access. The rear glass opens by itself, too, so you can load cargo without having to raise the full liftgate.
