2018 Yukon Denali Gets Styling Updates, New Transmission

2018 GMC Yukon Denali


Offering upscale styling, top-of-the-line power, impressive utility and a range of premium amenities, the Yukon Denali is a perfect choice for modern families. This model year brings small but impactful changes that make it an even more alluring buy for mom and dad drivers who appreciate both capability and refinement.

“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.”

Like for most GMC models, the Yukon Denali’s front grille is a quintessential feature that distinguishes it from the rest of the lineup. This year, the SUV gains a new sculpted, multidimensional grille design that, combined with HID headlamps and LED Signature Lighting, ups the ante on its premium appearance. This change also benefits the SUV’s performance by both improving airflow to the radiator and adding active aero shutters that reduce drag.

In addition to the updated styling cues, the powerhouse also receives a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission to accompany its 6.2-liter V8 engine. This new gearbox utilizes a wider, 7.39 overall gear ratio spread to provide greater efficiency and more precise response.

The latest incarnation of this premium family SUV will arrive in Scottsdale this fall. To learn more about the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali, or to find out how you can be notified when it becomes available for purchase, call or contact us today!
