the navigation system that comes standard with the Yukon Hybrid is immediately intuitive
elegant, near-Cadillac luxury at a lower price
Third-row seats are fairly easy to remove, thanks to new tracks placed on the floor, but only if you're capable of lifting something like a 40-pound suitcase.
Edmunds' Inside Line
Controlling music and navigation is a cinch via a 5.5-by-3.5-inch color LCD panel that's front and center.
Drivers of the old GMC Suburban would hardly recognize today's Yukon lineup. All versions of the big SUV have the kind of luxury features that were common only in imported sedans a few years ago.
For about $40,000, the base Yukon waves goodbye to its work-truck heritage with standard features like power windows, locks and mirrors; climate control; Bluetooth; and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary and a USB port. That SLE model is upgraded into SLT trim with the addition of remote start; three-zone climate control; rear parking sensors and a rearview camera; power-adjustable pedals; and a Bose audio system.
For the Denali, GMC piles on luxury features, including all those found on the SLT. It also gets a power-folding second-row seat; Bose surround sound; ventilated front seats; and heated second-row seats. Options on the Denali include DVD navigation and entertainment systems; power side steps; and a sunroof. Yukon Hybrid models include most of this gear and also get the Denali's additional sound insulation.It doesn't come cheap, though. A loaded Yukon Denali 4WD or a Yukon Hybrid Denali can top $60,000.
Basic versions aside, the 2012 GMC Yukon is every bit the luxury SUV.
