Today, large SUVs are typically designed with luxury in mind. This is because those who opt for these vehicles are typically seeking comfort, versatility and convenience to pamper their families with. But what about those wanting a full-size SUV that is built with its key element being its capabilities – towing and off-road skills, for example. For consumers who want an SUV that delivers both of these qualities, plus pampers its occupants, the 2017 GMC Yukon is the ultimate choice.
What makes the GMC Yukon more capable than most full-size SUVs? The answer lies in its makeup. The Yukon's construction is built with a truck-based frame – a design that makes it ideally suited for towing heavy loads and hitting rugged, off-road trails.
Along with its rugged, truck-based construction, the 2017 Yukon provides power. Under the hood of the 2017 Yukon, there is one of two engines: a 5.3-liter V8 or a 6.2-liter V8. The 5.3-liter V8 produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. What's this combo capable of? When properly equipped, Yukon's with the 5.3-liter V8 has a maximum tow rate of 8,500 pounds.
Yukon's powered by the 6.2-liter V8 create 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque and is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission – a duo that can tow a maximum 8,400 pounds.
The Yukon's top Denali trim is the optimal choice for consumers seeking a talented off-road SUV. This trim is equipped with a larger, more powerful engine, 20” wheels, trailer brake controller, xenon headlights and Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension.
Here's a question: how many passengers can fit inside a full-size, three-row SUV? The answer is eight, right? Usually, eight is the correct answer, but for the 2017 Yukon, the answer is eight and nine. The ability of the Yukon to increase passenger space by even just one seat puts this large SUV ahead of its competitors. Not only is passenger space a top feature in the 2017 Yukon, but it also stands out for its vast amount of luxury features.
The SLT trim is a consumer favorite with a huge list of boast-worthy niceties, such as:
The SLT also features power-folding second- and third-row seats, which consumers are especially happy with because it adds ease of use. Also adding ease of use to the Yukon is its hands-free liftgate that makes loading cargo a much simpler task.
