Brand new for this year, the biggest and most agile Yukon to date offers enough space to carry a family of five plus the dog, a few cats, their crates and everything you might need for a weekend getaway or moving all your earthly possessions. The fact it can also tow a large trailer or pleasure craft is not just an added bonus, but part of the reason why the Yukon is such a popular full-size SUV.

Powered by a 6.2L V8 EcoTec3 engine, it delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque at the press of a power adjustable accelerator pedal. Active Fuel Management provides fuel-saving four-cylinder performance when cruising at sustained speeds. Magnetic Ride Control and electric power steering makes this a much easier vehicle to maneuver than you might expect given its substantial outward footprint.

The 2015 Yukon XL Denali highlights a new exterior shape with chrome accents in abundance and a massive front chrome grille. Inside, the ride experience is quiet and comfortable as seats are designed to provide excellent support in all three rows. A customizable driver information display allows for personalization, while a new 8.0-inch touchscreen delivers easy access to a full menu of entertainment options, Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone access and voice recognition. Big and bold, this is a superior vehicle for Secret Service agents or a family on the go.
