When you need room for eight adult passengers and all their stuff for a weekend getaway, you need the 2017 GMC Yukon. It boasts a massive cargo capacity as well as spacious seating in all three rows. See what’s new to this year’s model and why our team loves this full-size SUV so much.
Not just a people hauler, the GMC Yukon has a maximum tow rating of 8100 pounds, so you can bring along a boat, a camper, or trailer your favorite kind of fun behind you. Powering this beast at the base two trims is a 335-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic, but as you advance to the upper trims, you’ll rev up a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 engine with an eight-speed automatic. With so many horses under the hood, you’ll make it to your destination in no time.
Inside the cabin of this commodious SUV is a plethora of exciting, luxurious and options. You’ll have connectivity options with the 8.0-inch infotainment system to pair with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and 4G LTE connectivity and Wi-Fi. With available leather and heated seats and steering wheel, you’ll feel like you’re in the lap of luxury.
And safety comes first with GMC, which is why there is an impressive gamut of active and passive safety features. You’ll find the available proximity sensors in front and back, cross-path detection alerts, a high-resolution backup camera, and a haptic alert system that vibrates the driver’s chair in an effort to keep the vehicle in the lane at all times. With all these assists and alerts, you’ll feel like you have an extra set of eyes helping you watch the road. It’s comforting and reassuring.
