If you're in the market for a large, luxury 8 passenger people hauler, then the GMC Yukon Denali XL is the truck for you.
Having made its debut as the newer version of the Yukon XL
, the brand decided that it needed a large SUV to compete with the likes of the Lincoln Navigator and the Ford Expedition.
And while this Yukon may be a bit smaller than the Lincoln Navigator and the Ford Expedition, it packs a mightier punch in terms of power.
Equipped with a 6.2 liter V8 engine that makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque the Denali XL is paired with an 8 speed automatic transmission, standard real-wheel drive, and a single-speed transfer case, while towing 8,000 lbs.
If you’re looking for greater performance, GMC offers a four-wheel drive and two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing as options.
Riding on a GMT-800 full-size truck platform, the Yukon Denali XL is longer for 2017 and designed with more extra interior space which allows it to haul more cargo. In fact, it’s a full 20.4 inches longer than its little brother.
And you'd think a big, hulking SUV like the Denali XL would be slow and difficult to maneuver but it's actually surprisingly agile, while offering a smooth, comfortable ride.
The secret to this monster truck’s solid drive is GMC’s next-generation Magnetic Ride Control, hydraulic engine mounts and a body style that lends itself to more solid, settled movement.
Inside the 2017 Yukon Denali XL offers class-leading luxury amenities, like premium leather seating, burnished aluminum trim, French seam-stitching on doors and console.
For starting price of around $89,000 GMC throws in some of the pretty nice creature comforts including a built-in 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, connectivity for up to seven mobile devices at one time, available OnStar navigation powered by AT&T, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eight-inch touchscreen with Intellilink system, 10-speaker Bose audio system and Sirius XM satellite radio.
Some of the technology you'll find on the 2017 Yukon Denali XL includes the Rainsense front wipers activated depending on degrees or precipitation, a Rear Vision Camera System, and a Head Up display that allows the driver to view Turn-by-Turn Navigation, audio data and incoming and outgoing calls right at eye level.
And if you're looking for proper safety features, the Denali XL has those too. Forward Collision Alert, Front and Rear Park Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and optional Traffic Cruise Control.
The Yukon Denali XL is simply a taste of luxury in a really big package. Stop in and find yours today at Anthony Buick GMC.
