The 2018 GMC Yukon

These days, vehicle shoppers have tons of choice. There are always great deals, low interest rates, and competitive offerings from half a dozen brands in any category. Customers usually have the luxury of asking “why this one?” When it comes the 2018 GMC Yukon, I don’t have a “one size fits all” answer. But I do have a pretty good answer.

The 2018 GMC Yukon: A New Standard

The value proposition for the 2018 GMC Yukon is based on the fact that you get so much standard equipment. Base models for most vehicles are bereft of quality materials, useful features, and a powertrain worth a few years of monthly payments. But when you buy a 2018 GMC Yukon, you’ll find that comfort, convenience, and performance all come standard.

You want big performance? Try out the 2018 Yukon’s standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque while still getting a respectable 10.7 L/100KM on the highway. Inside, the high benchmark continues for comfort and convenience. You even get a premium Bose nine-speaker system which delivers stunning sound quality even on the highway.

Other remarkable standard features include:

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • 4G LTE WiFi
  • Rainsense automatic wipers
  • Remote start
  • 18” bright aluminum wheels

While the standard features are amazing, the fun doesn’t stop there. Upgrading to the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali opens the doors to possibilities previously unconsidered.

2018 Yukon Denali

Denali has always represented the peak of professional grade. A Denali combines GMC’s best features in all categories with a sophisticated flourish. In the 2018 Yukon, it begins with a standard 6.2-liter V8. For your own sake, I hope you don’t encounter a driving scenario that demands more power than you’ll have on tap. While it’s mighty, the power is tempered by sophisticated features like 10-speed automatic transmission, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Change Alert. Oh, and it looks good, too.

Here’s what GMC has to say about the Yukon Denali’s signature grille, “The horizontal pattern is highlighted with three-dimensional block elements, which were carefully crafted to catch light just the right way, much like a high-end timepiece or sculptural jewelry.” I don’t know what sculptural jewellery is, but I do know that the grille is the perfect complement to the standard 20” bright machined-aluminum wheels. The 2018 GMC Yukon Denali makes an impressive first impression. And the refinement and sophistication carry on into the Yukon Denali’s interior.

Inside, you’ll find a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel; perforated, heated leather seats; and heated second-row seats. And, thanks to Bose’s Active Noise Cancellation, the sounds of the road and wind are entirely deadened. You get a customizable 8” Driver Information Centre as well as a vivid, 8” infotainment screen. GMC has even included a wireless charging dock for your smartphone.
