October 10th, 2023 by

2023 GMC Yukon Denali UltimateWhen it comes to full-size luxury SUVs, the 2024 GMC Yukon Denali stands out as a special vehicle. Buyers and journalists alike are raving about its space, driving dynamics, the engine, and so much more. It’s a vehicle that can surprise you quite quickly. 

With your choice of a 6.2-liter Eco-Tec V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel with 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. No matter the motor you choose, the Yukon Denali can get up and go, whether from a standstill or a roll. 

Interior of the GMC YukonJeff Zurschmeide of The Detroit Bureau recently spent a week with the GMC Yukon Denali, and he came away saying the same things that we hear from our customers, “… the Yukon is quiet, composed, and exactly what you expect. The ride and handling have both benefited from the current generation’s switch from a solid axle to independent rear suspension.”

One thing that really stood out to Mr. Zurschmeide was how much value the improved Super Cruise adds to the vehicle. In his review, he said, “GM has been doing the background work and this system is now well worth the $2,300 price tag as an option on top of the Denali Ultimate package … now it works impressively well on byways as well as major freeways … Super Cruise engages faster, handles more changes, and disengages more smoothly when you want to take control. This is an A+ driver assistance feature, and a big reason to consider the Yukon over other brands’ full-size SUVs.”

The 2024 GMC Yukon Denali starts from $74,805, and the Ultimate trim, like what The Detroit Bureau tested, starts at $96,450.
