As far as full size sport utility vehicles go, GMC’s updated Yukon has a lot to offer, even as sales of large and luxury SUV models continue to decline. The 2015 Yukon Denali XL provides enough seats for eight occupants across three rows, as well as impressive towing capacity. Benjamin Hunting, Autobytel’s Road Test Editor, trekked out to Canada’s Yukon territory to test GMC’s latest luxury SUV on its home turf. The Denali edition has always been the very best of the Yukon lineup, and it’s no different for the 2015 model year. The Yukon Denali XL is equipped with a 6.2-liter engine that makes 420 horsepower as well as a four-wheel-drive system, enabling the Yukon to handle all of Canada’s rugged landscapes with ease. Though the 2015 Yukon Denali is a menacing presence on smoothly paved public roads, it can also dominate dirt, gravel, and other off-road surface. GMC thoughtfully incorporated features such as magnetic shock absorbers, which provide upgraded performance whether the Yukon is being used for sport or for luxury. The cabin features high quality materials, which help contribute to a nicer and more luxurious interior experience than past versions of the Yukon. Pricing on the 2015 GMC Yukon starts at $46,335, but when equipped like Autobytel’s test model, the Yukon Denali is $65,680.
