Special features for 2009

GMC's 2009 Yukon pairs sturdy, capable truck underpinnings with more modern car-like interiors and features and they stand out for their comfortable ride and decent handling. With the addition of the new Hybrid model, trailer towing need not exclude fuel economy.
2009 GMC Yukon Denali safety features now include a blind-spot alert system and rearview camera system that uses a 3.5-inch screen inside the rearview mirror. The Yukon Denali now sports a more powerful 6.2L V8 with 403 hp, 417 lb-ft of torque and E85 FlexFuel capability. While the V8 is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with tap-up/tap-down shifting, you can choose between 2WD and AWD drive trains. Fuel economy estimates are 12 mpg city/19 mpg hwy with the Denali's larger V8.
