Offered in SLE and SLT trim levels, the 1999 Yukon SLE came with aluminum wheels, air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo system with cassette player. For 2000, the GMC Yukon was completely reshaped and reengineered. Based on the innovative GMT800 truck platform, the 2000 Yukon received a mildly rounded look and included standard four-wheel disc brakes. Propelling the 2000 GMC Yukon, a 4.8-liter V-8 featured a smaller displacement than the predecessors base engine but generated an extra 25 horsepower. A 285-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8 was also offered on the 2000 Yukon providing additional torque production.
The new-generation Yukon received an increased focus on interior comfort with standard CD player and rear seat audio controls. Standard-equipped for six passengers, an optional third-row 50/50 split-folding seat was offered on the Yukon. For 2007, the Yukon was modernized with a revised grille, headlamps housings and revised powerplants. An enhanced 5.3-liter Vortec V-8 engine generated 320 horsepower and featured Active Fuel Management. In 2009, the 5.3-liter engine gained the smooth-shifting support of a six-speed automatic transmission. Again refining itself as a large sport utility vehicle, the GMC Yukon was redesigned for 2015 featuring a new Ecotec3 engine and noise reduction features for improved cabin comfort.
