What Denali Offers
Let’s begin with the 130-inch wheelbase that is pretty much longer than the regular Yukon’s 116 inches. It is also available in four-wheel drive, with two options—the $69,375 standard package and the $4160 Touring package. With the latter, you can upgrade your basic Denali into something with sunroof,head-up display, theft-deterrent system with self-powered horn and an entertainment system that includes 2nd & 3rd row DVD screens. If you want to have the much coveted 22-inch wheels, then an additional $495 will do that.
Moreover, if you want to move a notch higher than XL, GMC also offers the prestigious Yukon SLE 4×4 at the price of $16,780 (soon to be $16,880 in 2016) that can bring you the 6.2L V-8, heated and cooled perforated-leather front seats, heated 2nd row bench, power-folding third row, HID headlamps, magnetic-ride-control dampers, a much bigger alternator, active noise cancellation, heated mirrors, a modified driver’s display and enticing exterior body-size moldings.
The heart of the mammoth demands impressively powerful 420hp and 460 pound-foot torque. It can sprint from mere nothing to 60 mph in full 6.5 seconds and easily gains the top speed of 113mph (though the digits are governor limited only).
