Overview
This is one of the largest SUVs available. The GMC Yukon offers the ultimate in big boy toys and the 2011 model offers a surprising amount of fuel efficiency for such a large vehicle. The hybrid model can get up to 20 MPG on the highway and the Denali trim level offers the most luxurious interior package that is built for comfort. This big SUV comes in either 2WD or 4WD depending on which package you opt for and has a big towing ability of up to 9,600.

The new Yukon is shipping with the standard 6 speed automatic and you can choose from the 325 or 376 horsepower V-8. There are many extra options available on the Yukon like OnStar and many different amenities you can add as options. The XL model offers even more room on the interior and has a wider wheelbase too. The Denali trim package is the top of the line and offers all of the extra options and features available on the Yukon. The 2011 model brings 2 new color combinations to the Yukon Metallic Mocha Steel and a Black Metallic color.
