How To Oktoberfest In A New 2016 GMC Yukon
If you’re planning to enjoy some Oktoberfest revelry, there’s no better way to get there than in a “Professional Grade” 2016 GMC Yukon from Gainesville Buick GMC.
The 2016 GMC Yukon SUV for sale in Gainesville has the room and upscale amenities you need to transport your friends and family to Orlando’s fun-filled Oktoberfest, around town, to the beach, or wherever your heart’s desire in luxury and comfort.
Handsome & Aerodynamic New Exterior
The 2016 Yukon makes a memorable impression with its signature chrome-accented grille that proudly displays the GMC logo. Brilliant projector beam headlights with LED turn signals illuminate the road ahead. Available 22-inch chrome wheels framed by large wheel wells make a dramatic statement.
Calling it “an offensive lineman in a crisp suit,” Kirk Bell of TheCarConnection.com says that the Yukon’s “…modern touch of sharper lines create a well-tailored look” that’s “strong and masculine.”
Tons Of Luxurious Inner Space
This is one SUV that can swallow up both passengers and tons of cargo with ease. With seating for up to 9 people, the standard-wheelbase Yukon gives you 15.7 cubic feet of storage space behind the 3rd-row and up to 94.7 cubic feet behind the front row of both the 3rd-row and 2nd-row seats folded flat. The Yukon extends this capacity to 121.1 cubic feet.
You get everything you’d expect and so much more from the Yukon’s superbly crafted interior. Authentic brushed aluminum trim, contrast stitching on the doors and console, and polished wood contribute to the Yukon’s luxuriously refined feel. Available leather seats feature top-quality cowhide for a soft, supple, and supportive appearance.
Everyone will arrive in comfort, thanks to the Yukon’s Tri-Zone Climate Control. And GM engineers worked tirelessly to make the Yukon’s cabin exceptionally quiet with such innovations as inlaid, triple-sealed doors, acoustic-laminated windshield, and sound-deadening materials.
You’ll find loading and unloading the Yukon to be a breeze with its available power programmable hands-free liftgate that lets you adjust gate height at the touch of a button. Hands full with groceries? Just kick your foot underneath the rear bumper and the liftgate magically opens.
The latest in technology is at your fingertips in the new 2016 Yukon for sale at Gainesville Buick GMC. Staying connected and being entertained has never been this easy or convenient thanks to GMC’s exclusive IntelliLink system. IntelliLink is an intuitive interface you manage with a crisp and responsive 8-inch Color Touch Radio display that cleverly raises up to reveal a hidden compartment with built-in USB for storing your valuables such as your smartphone out of sight.
Uses the screen’s smartphone-like icons to control your music libraries, customize favorite playlists, and more. Enjoy the convenience of voice recognition, Bluetooth® streaming audio, and multiple USB ports plus an audio jack to hook up your smartphone and access your phone book and playlists. An available navigation system keeps you headed in the right direction. New for 2016, the Yukon now features Apple CarPlay™ that lets you dock your compatible iPhone® and take advantage of its many popular functions.
And everyone will be entertained during the ride with the available rear Blu-Ray entertainment system with 9-inch screen and premium Bose® Surround Sound System. Passengers can also connect multiple devices and surf the web thanks to the Yukon’s built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi powered by OnStar®.
Efficient Power & A Refined Ride
Combining astonishing power with excellent fuel economy, the Yukon’s EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 delivers a prodigious 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Advanced Direct Injection, Active Fuel Management, and Variable Valve Timing are some of the technologies that help the Yukon achieve up to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway. And the Yukon has the muscle to handle those big loads with a rated towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds.
For 2016, the new Yukon offers its most refined ride ever. A variety of engineering enhancements such as redesigned hydraulic engine mounts contributes to a smooth and confident driving experience. Hill Start Assist maintains the brake on an incline to avoid rollback which is especially handy when towing a trailer.
Engineered For Better Safety
