2011 GMC Yukon

GMC Yukon is the no-excuses full-size SUV engineered for those who refuse to sacrifice capability for refinement or capacity for efficiency. This uncompromising approach gives Yukon Denali the most power in its class. It's why Yukon Hybrid is the first full-size SUV with a two-mode hybrid system for the best fuel economy in class.1It's also why Yukon XL offers nine-passenger seating and cargo capacity unmatched by any competitor. Together, these accomplishments and more make Yukon the benchmark for the full-size SUV and exemplify why our engineers never say never.
