What’s In Store for the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali?

2018 GMC Yukon Denali


?The Yukon Denali has a reputation for raising the bar, offering a level of refinement and vigor that few other premium family vehicles can compete with. The upcoming 2018 model year promises an even more elevated experience for Lincoln drivers, complete with styling upgrades and performance enhancements.

“Yukon Denali has always matched style with substance, and the enhancements for 2018 advance that legacy,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “The foundational elements of exclusive design, premium touches and uncompromising capability have made Yukon Denali an icon for nearly 20 years.”

The most notable change on the 2018 Yukon Denali is its new grille, which features a multidimensional, sculpted design that can be found across various new GMC models. The grille adds to the Yukon Denali’s powerful, sophisticated appearance, while also improving airflow to the radiator. It also features new active aero shutters that boost efficiency during highway driving.

“The new grille, which is flanked by HID headlamps and LED Signature Lighting, advances the design legacy established with the very first Yukon Denali in 1999,” said Matt Noone, director, Global GMC Exterior Design. “It’s a more exciting and sophisticated design, while remaining instantly recognizable as part of the GMC Denali family.”

The latest incarnation of the Yukon Denali will also come with a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission. Paired to the SUV’s 420-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 engine, this new transmission features a wider overall gear ratio spread for greater efficiency and improved response.
