Introducing the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate trim

In 2023, GMC introduced the first-ever exclusive Denali Ultimate trim to the Yukon lineup, elevating this popular full-size SUV to the top of its class. The Yukon Denali Ultimate offers the ultimate luxury SUV experience, with powerful capability, state-of-the-art technology, and premium high-class styling. Review this one-stop guide for all the details about the brand-new 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate.


The 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate stands out from the crowd with an elevated exterior. GMC has outfitted the top-level Yukon with an exclusive Denali grille and Vader Chrome trim. The Yukon Denali Ultimate rides on unique 22-inch, seven-spoke wheels with chrome accents and dark paint, paired with all-season tires. These one-of-a-kind touches are only available with the Denali Ultimate trim.

Other exterior features on the full-size SUV include LED headlights, fog lights, and daytime running lights for increased clarity on your drive. A hands-free power liftgate offers easy access to the cargo space, while the gate's memory height function means it will automatically open at the perfect height for you. A panoramic power sunroof with dual-panel glass extends over the second row to allow sunshine and extra ventilation into the cabin.


The 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate has more going for it than its striking good looks. Underneath the hood, you'll find a 6.2-liter V-8 engine, generating an impressive 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, the Yukon Denali Ultimate can easily tow a boat or trailer on your next adventure. You can also opt for the available Duramax 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine for increased efficiency.

This full-size SUV offers a smooth ride with standard Magnetic Ride Control, allowing the vehicle to adjust quickly to changing road conditions. An active-response four-wheel-drive system provides enhanced traction on slippery or uneven road surfaces, whether you're caught in a winter snowstorm or hitting the trails near Vincennes, Indiana. In addition, standard air suspension provides up to 2 inches of improved ground clearance on the Yukon Denali Ultimate.

After launching in 2022, the innovative Super Cruise technology is available for the Yukon Denali Ultimate, making it the first Yukon to have this option. Super Cruise allows hands-free operation on over 200,000 miles of roads in North America. Using advanced technology, Super Cruise offers automatic lane changing and a hands-free towing setting to elevate your drive.

Interior and Cargo Space

Like the rest of the Yukon lineup, the Denali Ultimate trim offers ample space for passengers and cargo. The three-row SUV provides seating for up to seven passengers with second-row captain's chairs. No matter where you sit in the Yukon Denali Ultimate, you'll enjoy a comfortable ride. The SUV offers 42 inches of legroom in the second row and up to 36.7 inches in the third-row seats, depending on whether you choose the standard Yukon or the extended-wheelbase Yukon XL.

When you need extra space in the back for gear or equipment, you can fold down the third-row seats for 72.6 cubic feet of cargo volume. For maximum cargo space, you can fold down both the second- and third-row seats for up to 122.9 cubic feet of room. If you choose the larger Yukon XL, you'll have access to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front row.

Interior Design

The 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate offers first-class amenities inside the cabin so you can enjoy the ride in comfort and style. The SUV comes standard with full-grain leather upholstery and a 16-way power driver and front-passenger seats with lumbar support and massage features. Memory settings for the driver's seat and outside mirrors make it easy to switch between drivers.

The SUV allows you and your passengers to stay comfortable in every season with heated and ventilated front seats, while second-row passengers will enjoy heated seats. Tri-zone automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel also come standard.
