Workhorse editions of the 2010 GMC Yukon can be ordered fairly stripped-which still includes power features, air conditioning, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary and a USB port. Other standard features on the Yukon include XM satellite radio; Bluetooth; steering-wheel audio controls; cruise control; and 17-inch wheels.
Kelley Blue Book reports "some tempting extras are available," including a "navigation system" and "DVD entertainment." Options include a rear air conditioner; a DVD rear-seat entertainment system; leather upholstery; a Bose premium sound system; real-time traffic; remote starting; 115-volt power outlets; power heated front seats; ventilated front seats; and a sunroof. The navigation system scores particularly well among reviewers, with Edmunds calling it "one of the best out there, with its intuitive design and large, brightly lit display."
Denali versions approach Cadillac levels of luxury, with standard features including tri-zone automatic climate control; a power-folding second-row seat; parking sensors; and remote starting. The Denali also gets a standard Bose Centerpoint surround-sound system with 10 speakers and XM Satellite Radio, as well as ventilated seats up front and a heated second-row seat. Kelley Blue Book states that some of the base Yukon's "optional equipment that's standard on Denali includes a power liftgate, power fold-and-flip second-row seats, ultrasonic rear parking assist (standard on SLT), power-adjustable pedals," and an "upgraded audio system." Cars.com adds "standard leather-wrapped steering wheel with redundant controls" to the list. Road & Track says "new amenities like hands-free Bluetooth cellphone connectivity, OnStar turn-by-turn navigation and third-row seating are all standard" on the Denali XL.
Denali options include the DVD navigation and entertainment systems, a sunroof, and power-retractable assist steps. ConsumerGuide reports the "optional navigation system absorbs, but doesn't complicate, audio functions." Edmunds notes "this year's navigation system now has real-time traffic capability," and considers it one of the best navigation systems on the market.
