Wherever you want to go and whatever venue awaits your arrival, the 2024 GMC Yukon is a vehicle you’ll be proud to arrive in. The GMC Yukon and longer wheelbase GMC Yukon XL have all the capability and practicality you need for day-to-day family duties. However, the GMC also has such style and presence you’ll never be out of place rolling up to the swankiest restaurant, most exclusive golf club, or even a star-studded movie premiere.
Most versions of the 2024 GMC Yukon you’re likely to come across won’t feature the full complement of nine seats inside. But it’s a real feather in the Yukon and Yukon XL cap that such an impressive level of people-carrying capability is available if you need it. In fact, most minivans can’t accommodate as many people as the Yukon. The only way to get the full complement of nine seats is to specify the base model with a front bench seat. An eight-seat capacity is standard in many cases, although opting for second-row captain’s chairs turns the Yukon into a fabulously comfortable seven-seat SUV.
While many mid-size and even some full-size SUVs have third-row seats that are only generous enough for small children, the third-row in the Yukon and Yukon is suitable for adults. Those sitting in the third row of the 2024 GMC Yukon can enjoy 886 mm (34.90 inches) of legroom, while the Yukon XL expands that to an even more generous 932 mm (36.70 inches).
Whether you want to carry more people than the average minivan, transport a big load of cargo, tow a sizeable, or any combination of the above, there are few vehicles as versatile or capable for every occasion as the 2024 GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL. When correctly specified, the 2024 Yukon can tow up to a maximum of 3,810 kg, which is the towing capacity full-size trucks were boasting about offering until relatively recently.
It’s almost impossible to imagine having 1,175 litres of cargo volume behind your vehicle’s third-row seats if you haven’t experienced the Yukon XL lately, and even the slightly smaller Yukon has 722 litres back there. And if you want a mix of cargo and passenger capacity, the Yukon’s flexible interior lets you select from a wide range of passenger and cargo-carrying combinations. When both the second and third-row seats get folded away to reveal the maximum cargo volume, the Yukon has 3,480 litres of available cargo space, and the Yukon XL has an incredible 4,097 litres available.
The 2024 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are available in five different trim levels. The range starts with the entry-level SLE, which many shoppers will find hard to believe is a base model. But if you want something a little more opulent, there are also the SLT, AT4, Denali, and top-of-the-range Denali Ultimate. The SLE and SLT trim levels are rear-drive in their standard forms with four-wheel drive optional for both, while AT4, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trim levels get four-wheel drive as part of their standard specifications.
Under the hood of the SLE, SLT, and AT4 is a standard 5.3-litre V-8 gas engine providing the Yukon with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. If you’d prefer something even more potent than that, the second powerplant option is a 6.2-litre V-8 developing 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2 is standard if you go for a Denali and Denali Ultimate, and it’s available for the AT4 as a cost option. A 3.0-litre inline-six turbodiesel completes the powertrain lineup, and this one gets you 277 horsepower and the 460 lb.-ft. of torque as the gas-powered 6.2. Every model apart from the AT4 can be specified with the diesel. Regardless of the trim level, engine, or drivetrain, every 2024 Yukon and Yukon XL model sends its power to the wheels through a standard ten-speed automatic transmission.
