The 2019 GMC Yukon has been tagged as many among those old-school SUVs that come with plenty of capability accompanied by as many tech-features it could, to attract the new-school buyers. That might sound interesting for many, especially when you are about to buy one SUV, but having constant war with your teenager, on the model to choose. So, why not pick up this opportunity and take your teenager too with you to a reputed showroom at your nearest, like that of the GMC dealer Mantua Township, and explore the latest 2019 model of the GMC Yukon?
New For 2019
For 2019, GMC has freshened the Yukon by adding a Standard Edition Value Package to address the buyers who are budget-conscious. There is also a Graphite Edition and Graphite Performance Edition packages this time to the SLT trim. For 2019 we see three new colors added to the metallic palette namely, the Dark Sky, Pepper Dust, and Smokey Quartz.
Choice of Engines
The Yukon offers you two choices of V-8 engines, one being the 5.3-liter one that can make 355 of horsepower or the even more powerful 6.2-liter option that takes the horsepower to a count of 420. The 2019 GMC Yukon can be ordered either as a rear- or four-wheel drive with a 6-speed automatic for the 5.3-liter V-8 engine and a 10-speed automatic one to match with the 6.2-liter powertrain.
The 5.3-liter V-8 version of the 2019 Yukon with a beefy ladder frame and a solid rear axle, is now able to tow an impressive load of 8,500 pounds and can surprisingly return good fuel economy even while driving at higher cruising speeds because of the cylinder deactivation technology.
Step inside the 2019 GMC Yukon and the first thing you will notice is the car-like dashboard that exhibits a high-quality make that is also spread all over the Yukon cabin. Believing in the old school concept of SUV, the 2019 Yukon continues to offer a bench seat apart from the two bucket seats that adorn the front side of the cabin. The passenger space on the other hand comfortably accommodates the passengers and their stuff. Things can be changed once you fold flat the third row, with the second row sitting upright. Saying that we mean that the 2019 GMC Yukon can swallow a good amount of luggage and that is when you get the charm of going for the XL trim. Here we would like to mention that the XL trim does make sense particularly for buyers who need to haul more than five people with heavy luggage on a regular basis.
When we talk about GMC, we can rest assured of the safety aspect. The 2019 Yukon is no exception in this regard. Every 2019 Yukon come equipped with an array of useful and effective safety features mainly as standards, like anti-lock brakes, the full set of airbags, stability control and more. The SLT and Denali trim models even include adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking but as optional, while the blind-spot monitors, front parking sensors and lane-departure warnings come as standard.
If the GMC Mantua Township dealership is near to your place, a visit to its showroom can give you the chance to explore the 2019 Yukon when you book a test drive with it.
