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.
