10-Speed Automatic Transmission

You can enjoy the control of a manual, and drive with the ease of an automatic, thanks to the 6.2L V-8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control.

Magnetic Ride Control

A suspension that precisely reads the road up to 1,000 times a second to keep you ahead of the game on the road.

Automatic Locking Rear Differential

When on loose gravel or slippery surfaces, power goes to the rear wheel with the most traction to keep Yukon Denali moving seamlessly.

Corrosion-Resistant Duralife Brake Rotors

Yukon’s brake rotors utilize Duralife corrosion protection, a process that can help double rotor life.



CONFIDENT TRAILERING Yukon Denali is engineered to give you a sense of control to hitch and tow with confidence.

Heavy Duty Trailering

The useful trailering technology in Yukon Denali helps ease the hitching process and instill peace of mind along the way.

  • Standard trailering hitch platform
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
  • Magnetic Ride Control
  • Tow up to 3,674 kg1 with Yukon Denali
  • Tow up to 3,538 kg1 with Yukon XL Denali

1. Before you buy a vehicle or use it for trailering, carefully review the trailering section of the Owner’s Manual. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow

Trailering Technologies

A comprehensive list of technologies helps you tow with confidence:

  • The integrated trailer brake controller provides fingertip control of your trailer’s brakes.
  • Hill Start Assist holds the brakes momentarily to give you extra time to switch from the brake to the accelerator under certain situations.
  • Trailer Sway Control helps keep both your Yukon Denali and your trailer heading in the same direction, automatically. The system uses StabiliTrak sensors to detect a swaying trailer, applying both Yukon Denali’s and the trailer’s brakes (if properly equipped) to help bring it back in line.
