Special features for 2012
The Yukon and Yukon Hybrid are all sturdy full-size SUVs, oriented toward carrying heavy loads of passengers or cargo and towing large trailers, such as those used for boats or horses. Both available V8 engines provide strong performance, while the Yukon and its big brother, the Yukon XL handle much better--even around town--than their mammoth size might suggest. Ride quality and interior refinement are other high points. In addition, the Yukon Hybrid remains one of the most efficient full-size SUVs yet fully capable of heavy loads and tow duty.
Measuring a hulking 222.4 inches in total length, the 2012 GMC Yukon XL avails 45.8 cubic feet of rear cargo room even when the sport utility is packed to its maximum 9-passenger capacity. Sold in SLE, SLT and Denali trim, the 2012 GMC Yukon XL all include standard safety features such as StabiliTrak, six airbags, tire-pressure monitoring system, anti-lock braking and OnStar. On the 2012 Yukon XL SLE model, convenience items include 6-way power driver seat, XM satellite radio and cruise control. Auto-dimming rearview mirror along with a reverse view camera system is added to the SLT model of the 2012 GMC Yukon XL. Both the 2012 GMC Yukon XL SLE and SLT come with a 6-liter Vortec V-8 engine generating 352 horsepower. An E85 compatible engine, the 6-liter V-8 comes in either rear or four-wheel drivetrains. The 2012 Yukon XL Denali presents an elite package of items such as leather seating, power liftgate and 20-inch chrome aluminum wheels. Most notably on the Denali trim is the inclusion of a 403 horsepower, 6.2 liter V-8 engine. Maximum towing for the 2012 Yukon XL is rated at 9,600 pounds.
