Bold New 2016 GMC Yukon Hits The High Road


The road to your next adventure starts at McCarthy Chevy Buick GMC when you get behind the wheel of your new 2016 GMC Yukon SUV.

Big, Bold & Beautiful


Ready to impress from the moment you see it, the Yukon features GMC’s big, bold signature grille flanked by two oversized projector beam headlights accented by LED turn signals. The GMC is perfectly proportioned and designed with such aerodynamic innovations as a hidden rear wiper system that helps reduce drag. The Yukon’s sleek flanks are set off by muscular wheel wells that can accommodate the available 18 and 20-inch brushed aluminum alloy wheels as well as the attention-getting available 22-inch chrome wheels.

As GMC’s largest vehicle, the Yukon offers a commanding presence on the road with a sophisticated look that brings a new dimension of style to the large SUV segment. Getting fresh new sheetmetal in 2015, the Yukon is, as’s Kirk Bell puts it, “…an offensive lineman in a crisp business suit.”

Vast & Versatile Top-Grade Interior

Enter the Yukon’s cavernous interior and experience a cabin that’s as big as the great expanse of Canada’s Yukon Territory for which it was aptly named. With comfortable three-row seating for up to 9 adults, the extended-wheelbase Yukon XL offers nearly 39 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 76.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and a massive 121.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the 2nd and 3rd rows folded flat. The standard-wheelbase Yukon’s interior dimensions are a bit smaller, but still offer plenty of capacity for passengers and all their gear.

The Yukon makes it easy to access all that supremely flexible interior space with an available power programmable hands-free rear liftgate that can be opened by moving your foot underneath the rear bumper. The rear liftgate’s height can be adjusted, and the liftgate’s rear window can be opened separately for greater convenience. Plus, your remote key fob allows you open the doors and start the vehicle when in proximity.

As you would expect of a “Professional Grade” vehicle of this caliber, the Yukon’s fit, finish, and quality are second-to-none. GM’s designers got it right down to the last detail. The result is a cabin that is exceptionally quiet and meticulously crafted. Authentic aluminum trim, contrast stitching on the console and doors are just a few of the premium touches that raise the bar. And you’ll be amazed at how quiet the Yukon’s interior is thanks to a number of innovations that keep the blare of the outside world at bay.

The 2016 Yukon also excels at versatility. A segment-exclusive power release fold-and-tumble 2nd-row seat, as well as the 3rd-row, fold-flat bench seats with available power option, give you unsurpassed access which makes it easy to take advantage of the Yukon’s spacious accommodations to the fullest.

Innovative Technology, Convenience & Entertainment Features

Everywhere you look inside the new Yukon, you’ll find amazing innovation, technology, and convenient features. If you’ve ever been concerned about where to stash your smartphone or other small valuables, the large 8-inch Color Touch Radio center display screen cleverly raises, revealing a storage area with USB port. You can also charge your compatible smartphone wirelessly. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of the oversized center console that’s big enough to hold hanging folders or even a laptop turning your Yukon into a rolling office on wheels.

Settle in behind the wheel of the Yukon and control a host of infotainment and other essential functions via convenient steering wheel-mounted controls, integrating with the color touchscreen display. The Yukon’s large instrument cluster features a row of gauges above the twin analog speedometer and tachometer. Nestled in between them is a customizable 4.2-inch, color Driver Information Center with available heads up display (HUD) that quickly communicates numerous vital stats, as well as navigational prompts. Everyone can stay connected on the go with the Yukon’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi powered by OnStar®.

GM’s full-featured IntelliLink™ infotainment system allows you control a myriad of functions with your voice, connect media libraries from compatible devices, integrate your smartphone for hands-free dialing, customize your “favorites,” receive text-message alerts, and utilize the wireless phone and audio streaming capabilities of Bluetooth®.

For even more innovative options, the 2016 Yukon now comes equipped with Apple CarPlay™, allowing you to use your iPhone® with familiar icons appearing on the touchscreen display. There’s also Siri® Eyes Free voice integration as well. You’ll enjoy your personal music soundtrack with the amazing, available premium Bose® Surround Sound System. And you’ll keep the gang entertained with the available Rear-seat Blu-Ray entertainment system with large, 9-inch color screen.


Exceptional Power & A Refined Ride

The 2016 GMC Yukon is one of the most powerful SUVs in the GMC lineup and rightly so, giving you the performance, power, and sheer brute force you need for towing up to 8,500 pounds. Providing motivation is potent, yet surprisingly fuel-efficient, 355 hp EcoTec3 V-8 engine that delivers 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Several unique technologies are employed to improve fuel economy, including Advanced Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing, and Active Fuel Management that seamlessly turns on or shuts off four of the engine’s eight cylinders based on load and power demands. These add up to an EPA-estimated 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway which is quite respectable for an SUV of this size.

The Yukon is also engineered to offer an exceptionally smooth, refined, responsive, and confident ride. Redesigned hydraulic engine mounts, electric power steering, and special tires designed to improve handling ride quality and stopping power add up to a driving experience that keeps you in command of the road ahead. Plus, Hill Start Assist holds the brakes for several seconds, preventing rollback.

The Latest Safety & Security Technologies

You also receive a standard 6-month trial of OnStar® that gives you such advanced features as automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigation, roadside assistance, and more.
