How is the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate Different?

The GMC Yukon Denali was arguably the most luxurious and capable SUV platform available to buyers for a long time. When the 2023 model year officially gets underway, Budds’ Chev customers will have something else to consider, the all-new Denali Ultimate trim grade. We have already found this label available with the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. However, when the new top-of-the-line accessory package is applied to the Yukon, it will take on a life of its own. The automaker’s designers added several exclusive elements and added more advanced technology to the vehicle. Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect to see.

2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Performance

GMC didn’t waste any time picking a powertrain to power the newest member of the Yukon Denali family. The 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate will have the manufacturer’s naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V-8 engine attached to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It will make 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Budds’ Chev customers can expect the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate to be able to tow up to 3,402 kg (7,500 lbs.). 

Additionally, GMC has equipped the Yukon Denali Ultimate with the Super Cruise driver assistance system. This semi-autonomous driving system will help the driver change lanes and tow hands-free on properly marked roads.

Exclusive Exterior Features

The Denali name has always been associated with refinement and luxury. Naturally, the Denali Ultimate dials up both of those elements when it’s applied to the 2023 Yukon platform. The outside of the three-row SUV will include:

  • Vader Chrome finish accents
  • Polished bright chrome window/door trim
  • 22-Inch seven-spoke machined wheels

Yukon Denali Ultimate Interior Elements

There will be very few vehicles on the market that will be able to compete with the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate in terms of interior comfort and luxury. Future owners of the latest Yukon variant will see:

  • Alpine Umber full-grain leather interior upholstery
  • Exclusive Denali Ultimate plaited contrast stitching
  • Aluminum trim pieces
  • Open-pore Paldao woodgrain trim
  • 18-speaker Bose® audio system

Standard and Available Connectivity Technology

Not only will the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate look good inside and out, but it will also offer some of the most advanced connectivity features in the global automotive industry. Every 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate is outfitted with a 10.2-inch touchscreen to control the automaker’s native infotainment system featuring Google Built-In technology. Wireless access to both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is standard equipment as well. Owners can also choose to activate a high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and connect the SUV’s infotainment system to their Amazon Alexa digital home assistant.
