The 2015 GMC Yukon takes strides toward raising its appeal through appearance, both inside and out, and improved materials and space usage--but without the features you and your family need, it's all for naught. Fortunately, GM has amped up the technology as well.
Standard features on all non-Denali models include a rearview camera, front and rear park assistance systems, a segment-exclusive center air bag, a premium Bose stereo, enhanced GMC IntelliLink infotainment with 8-inch touchscreen display, and a 110-volt three-prong power outlet.
Optional extras (some of which come standard on higher-trim models) include driver assistance and alert technologies like a vibrating driver's seat that warns of hazards; forward collision alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and side blind-zone alert; adaptive cruise control with automatic braking; a head-up display; and more. Other optional upgrades include keyless entry and push-button start, a heated/tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power-folding second- and third-row seats, and a height-programmable powered rear lift gate. An abundance of USB ports can be added (bringing the total up to six), and second- and third-row Blu-Ray entertainment is available.
Denali models upgrade to a higher base specification, including all of the driver alert technologies (although adaptive cruise control is still an optional extra); power-folding second- and third-row seats; heated second-row seats; heated and cooled front-row seats; a 10-speaker Bose Centerpoint surround sound system; active noise cancellation; GM's third-generation Magnetic Ride Control suspension; an eight-inch customizable driver display; and IntelliLink with navigation, Bluetooth, audio streaming, and five USB ports.
Optional upgrades on the Denali models are fewer owing to their already long standard feature sheet, but include: a head-up display, a variety of unique 22-inch wheels, retractable steps, a roof rack, a power sunroof, rear-seat headphones, rear-seat entertainment with Blu-Ray, and a heated split-folding second row bench seat.
