One of the major changes applied to the 2023 GMC Yukon is the introduction of the Denali Ultimate trim level, which the automaker describes as the “most premium Yukon ever offered.” Highlights of this new trim include unique Vader Chrome exterior accents, model-specific 22-inch wheels, Alpine Umber full-grain leather upholstery, and genuine Paldao woodgrain interior trim. The GM Super Cruise driver assist system is also offered as an optional upgrade.
As a reminder, the 2023 GMC Yukon is available with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. All three engine options connect to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
