The 2017 GMC Yukon’s Impressive Performance Capabilities

2017 GMC Yukon


In an era when many makes and models of SUVs are shrinking their engines and moving to less inspired formulations, the 2017 GMC Yukon is a true stalwart. This full-size SUV features a full-size SUV design, available four-wheel drive, and two robust V8 engine choices. Check out the 2017 GMC Yukon performance specs before making the trip to Westridge Buick GMC.

GMC Yukon Powertrain

The first two trims in the GMC Yukon lineup come standard with a 5.3L V8 engine that makes a confident 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, and when properly equipped it is capable of towing up to 3855 kilograms.

GMC Yukon Denali Powertrain

The top-of-the-line GMC Yukon Denali trim gets a beefy 6.2L V8 engine that serves up a commanding 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This model gets an eight-speed automatic standard and can tow up to 3,810 kilograms when properly equipped.

A Serious Worker with Off-Road Prowess

The GMC Yukon remains a genuine SUV in the fullest sense of that term: truck-based and body-on-frame. What this means for you as a driver is the ability to trek off road without a worry, thanks to the robust construction and higher ride height of this SUV. With the base engine, you’ll have the choice between rear-wheel drive (4×2) and four-wheel driver (4×4), as well as your choice between a single-speed transfer case and a more off-road ready two-speed transfer case with a low-range gear ratio option. On the Denali, the available four-wheel drive version comes standard with a two-speed transfer case.
