There is no competitor for GM in the full-size segment, yet one should not expect GM to rest on its laurels with the new series of upgrades performed across all brands and models. In the GMC Yukon Denali one gets an unrivaled professional grade package with luxury appointments. The 6.2L V8 with active fuel management makes 420HP and 460 lb-ft of torque; the towing capacity is 8,100 lbs; and with a 8-speed transmission you get 21 MPG on the highway in an all-wheel drive package. For an SUV of that size and capability the fuel economy is astonishing as it rivals many crossovers that are car-based. The model I drove was loaded with features like Bluetooth audio streaming, an 8” touch screen with Intellilink telematics and a navigation system, 20” wheels, power 3rd row seats, rear entertainment system, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and so much more with a starting price of $68,325. Additional connectivity is available with OnStar 4G LTE and Text-to-Voice features or Siri Eyes Free technology through the iPhone. I was also able to use my IKEA wireless sleve to charge my iphone wirelessly which was a great feature. The GMC Yukon Denali is a new professional standard for full size SUV’s.
