This truck-based vehicle goes above and beyond to offer incredible towing and cargo capabilities. Need to tackle rural off-road Illinois trails west of Joliet? With a 2017 GMC Yukon, you have everything you need to work and play harder. Just check out the following overview of what's so exciting about this beauty of a beast:
A Quick Look at the 2017 GMC Yukon
The Yukon Interior. The GMC Yukon is a vehicle of opportunity. It comes standard with seating for eight, but you can customize your selection and go up or down a seat. Opt for captain's chairs in the second row to provide more comfortable and spacious seating for adults, although it drops seating to seven -- ideal if you have older kids, use your vehicle for work, or otherwise frequently transport adults. Or you can increase seating by one by throwing a bench seat in the first row as well as the second.
Other noteworthy aspects of the 2017 GMC Yukon include an upscale interior look with wood grain trim offset by plush, soft-touch materials. Taller and stouter drivers alike will easily fit in the vehicle's front seat. Yet, in spite of this vehicle's roomy size, the GMC Yukon remains easy to see out of, and included rear parking sensors and rearview camera make maneuvering in and out of tight spaces stress-free.
Cargo & Towing. There are two primary reasons buyers choose the GMC Yukon: Space and cargo/towing capabilities. The maximum towing capacity here is 8,500 pounds. That gives drivers the power to handle many a power boat trailer to and from Fox River, the Great Lakes, and beyond. Or if you love camping, throw a little camper on and head off from Joliet and onto your favorite Midwest camping destinations.
As far as packing up all your boat, camping, groceries, and other cargo, the 2017 GMC Yukon has plenty of space for all you need. Behind the third row is a 15.3 cubic-foot cargo hold. Fold down the third-row seats, and this cargo hold increasing to an impressive 51.7 cubic feet. But if you really need to move some goods, then fold down that second row and enjoy an incredible 94.7 cubic feet.
Performance Capabilities. The 2017 GMC Yukon comes standard with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that offers 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, which either sends power to the rear wheels, or for those who choose all-wheel drive, all four wheels. With either rear wheel or all-wheel drive, the Yukon has no problem with providing responsive performance. You can pack it full of passengers and cargo and still enjoy quick acceleration, passing, merging, and climbing/descending hills. Drivers can push this vehicle to its very limits and still enjoy a quiet and reliable ride.
Even when it comes to fuel economy, the 2017 GMC Yukon excels. Sure, the SUV market is not renown for incredible fuel efficiency. But this year's model does offer the best fuel estimates in the large SUV class with 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway.
