The new 2023 GMC Yukon will have its own distinguished look. Yukon has been known to be a big, burly, and muscular vehicle. Not only in a matter of size, but also in capabilities. The ride has three row arrangements to accommodate many passengers. It has an impressive towing ability. And it is simply huge, with solid stance and tough construction.
For the new 2023 model, Yukon is borrowing mechanics from Chevy Suburban and Tahoe, but it still retains its own signature characteristics with new features and unique appearance. You are probably thrilled with the engine offers.
Yukon not only offers one or two engines, but three options! Two of them would be petro V8 engine and one would be turbo-diesel six-line type. All of them will be coming with auto 10 speed engine with signature gear selector of push button system.
When compared to last year’s type, the new model will have better equipment and more room in the cabin. Extra room is also added for the cargo space. The SUV has 7 seats arrangement, which should be able to carry many passengers. And the 2023 GMC Yukon model would be bigger, topped off with luxurious features.
The manufacturer includes skid plates, low range transfer box, and thick tires for offroad experience – if you are interested. There are also additions for the LED taillights and headlamps (for Denali) as well as the upright and big chrome grille.
In AT4, the chrome grille comes in matte black and black, with red skid plate and tow hook on the upfront. The AT4 alone comes with 20 inches of wheels, four wheel driving system, heated steering wheel, and also heated seats.
The Interior Cabin
The SLE base would be coming with standard features – which are more than the competitors. If you choose Denali, then expect to get more. To create unique and lush effect, the seats are covered in leather (hand-sewn, mind you) and also woodcut accents.
The center console has slide power ability, but it is only available in AT4, SLT4, and also Denali. Such a feature is convenient for the driver as he can move and go back and forth within the center console easily. Such an arrangement is also convenient because it offers greater flexibility when more room is needed.
Spacious room isn’t the only thing to like about this model because newest technologies would be included too. Expect to find big infotainment display screen along with the newest Intellink interface system.
LTE 4G WiFi hotspot and integration with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay would be the standard, while audio systems and Bose navigation would be the optional pick.
Powertrain and Performance
As it was mentioned before, Yukon will be offering two petrol V8 engines. The 5.3 liter will deliver 355 hp of power, while the 6.2 liter will deliver 420 hp of power. And for the extra powertrain, there would be turbo diesel engine with 3.0 liter capacity, delivering 460 hp of power. The last powertrain is offered for auto owners who want to tow heavy load.
All of the engines are paired with auto 10 speed transmission, along with all wheel or rear wheel driving system. The V8 5.3 liter has 16 mpg for the city and 20 mpg for the highway, while the turbo diesel is claimed to have better result – but there hasn’t any figure released yet.
For the starting price, it is likely that 2023 GMC Yukon may be set from around $52,000, respectively.
