GMC has announced three new models of the Yukon lineup including the Yukon XL. Several innovative measures have been incorporated in the car so that it now comes with bold new styling, quiet interiors and a segment leading efficiency in engine performance. The car is powered by the V8 5.3 liter EcoTec3 engine. it comes with several features like direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation and an advanced combustion system so that the car can deliver a high fuel efficiency and far greater driving comfort. It is perfectly mated with the Hydra-Matic 6L80 six speed automatic transmission for better performance.

The exterior design of the car is quite forceful. It is sleek and aerodynamic which serves to improve the efficiency of the engine further. Aluminum has been used on liftgate panels and the hood to reduce the overall weight – again contributing to the efficiency. The signature C-shaped light-emitting diode lighting motif can be seen in front and rear and projector beam headlamps are standard on the Yukon XL models.

The design of the doors is quite unique. These inlaid doors now fit into the openings on the side of the body instead of on top of it. This has significantly reduced cabin noise and resulted in a much quieter riding experience. This is enhanced by the laminated glass used in front and rear windshields. The rear window wiper has been relocated. It is now housed in a standard rear spoiler on the rear liftgate and is completely invisible when not in use. The gooseneck arms of the liftgate have been replaced with the new worm screw type liftgate arms which are far more space saving. The interior is stylish and comfortable with ambient lighting and premier infotainment system including a soft touch instrument panel, standard Bose sound system and seats with dual firmness foams.
