Bring along everything you want for your next big trip, because the GMC Yukon will have space for it. With all three rows upright, you’ll still have a massive 15.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Seats all fold down independently so you’ll have the flexibility to accommodate cargo as well as passengers with the push of a button. Fold down the second row for 51.7 cubic feet of storage space, or fold down both rows behind the driver and front passenger for an unbelievable 94.7 cubic feet. That’s more than enough to tackle home projects or help a friend move across town. Whatever you need it for, the Yukon has space that’s yours to work with.

And whatever task you end up using all that space for, you’ll stay connected on the go with all the thoughtful features in the Yukon’s comfortable cabin. Standard features on the base Yukon SLE trim includes a rearview camera, parking sensors, and a Bose premium audio system so you’ll hear your life’s soundtrack in perfect clarity. You’ll love GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and Bluetooth connectivity that keeps you connected even on the road. The tri-zone climate control provides customized comfort for the front and back of the vehicle, and so you can enjoy a quiet ride where everyone’s happy. Upgrade to the Denali trim to get leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, keyless entry/start, navigation, active noise cancellation, Magnetic Ride Control, 4G LTE connectivity, and a programmable power liftgate.

This is a must-see vehicle for growing families who want more than just the basics for their next SUV. The 2018 GMC Yukon is packed with features to make your life easier with every ride.
