GMC Middle East has confirmed the arrival of 2019 Yukon in the UAE this year. The full-size SUV will be available in four models including Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali and Yukon Denali XL.

Yukon’s base SLE and SLT trims are powered by a 5.3L V8 EcoTEC3 engine with direct injection that delivers more power and torque in the new model. With the new Active Fuel Management, GMC claims a fuel efficiency of 9.6kpl for the SLE and SLT. A rung up the ladder will get you the exclusive 6.2-litre V8 engine that is standard in the Denali models delivering 420hp and 624Nm of torque.

The 5.3L V-8 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the 6.2L in the Denali features a new ten-speed automatic transmission.

On the inside, GMC has graced the Yukon with a silent cabin, all thanks to the new active noise cancellation technology that provides better insulation from outside noise. Standard in the SLE and SLT trims are the 8-inch Colour Touch radio with GMC IntelliLink and Apple CarPlay. Apart from that, the SLE and SLT trims also come with Bose’s nine-speaker audio system. For Denali trims, GMC has included a Bose Centerpoint Surround Sound premium 10-speaker audio system along with the same 8-inch Colour Touch Radio.

On the outside, the new Yukon comes with a wider rear track that plants the SUV better on the road. Other notable features on the new SUV include a new electric variable-assist power steering system, 241-mm rear axle and standard automatic locking rear differential, standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control, tow/haul mode, trailer sway control, auto grade braking and hill start assist.
