Generation Overview

The 2016 Yukon is part of this large SUV's fourth generation of production (2015-2020), which debuted with stand-out features like standard smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and a large eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In previous generations, the Yukon's third row needed to be completely removed in order to create more cargo space. However, beginning with the 2015 Yukon model, the third-row seats fold directly into the floor for easy expansion of the cargo area.

The 2016 model year saw some additional upgrades, like an available hands-free power liftgate and lane-keep assist.

Every 2016 Yukon SLE and SLT trim is outfitted with a 5.3L V8 engine at 355 hp; this engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with rear-wheel drive, although four-wheel drive was optional when this vehicle was sold new.

The range-topping Denali trim, on the other hand, receives a 6.2L V8 engine at 420 hp under the hood. This engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and comes with either rear- or four-wheel drive.

We love our GMC Yukon Denali SUV!

We love our SUV! I was recently rear-ended while in our previous 2007 GMC Yukon Denali SUV and we firmly believe that I would not have walked away from that accident, if I were in a car.


  • Ride and Handling: I feel safe in my SUV.
  • Styling: It is a handsome looking, always distinctive looking vehicle.
  • Interior Space: We are tall and big family, our Denali SUV allows us to travel in style.


  • Fuel Economy: Gas is high at this time.
