Detailed Review of Each 2024 GMC Yukon Trim Level

SLE Trim — The Base Mode

The 2024 GMC Yukon lineup starts with the SLE trim. It gets power from a 5.3-liter V-8 engine and features 18-inch wheels and LED headlights. It has power-adjustable front seats, a 12-inch digital instrument panel, and an infotainment system with a 10.2-inch touch screen. Safety features such as a collision warning system, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure mitigation are standard.

SLT Trim — Midlevel Luxury 

The midlevel SLT is a step up from the SLE and adds the GMC Pro Safety Plus package, which includes a blind-spot warning system with a rear cross-traffic alert. It upgrades from cloth upholstery to leather and adds heated and ventilated front seats. This model also has advanced tech features, such as a nine-speaker Bose stereo and wireless charging.

AT4 Trim — Off-Road Capabilities

The AT4 is the GMC Yukon with extra off-road features. It has all-terrain tires, an upgraded air filter, and adaptive suspension dampers to help improve ride quality and enhance stability over rough terrain. The AT4 also comes with hill-descent control. Its interior provides a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, and a power split-folding third-row.

Denali Trim — Top-Tier Luxury

The Denali offers the ultimate in luxury. It also has the power 60/40 split-folding third-row seating and heated and ventilated front seats but adds heated second-row outboard seats, a power-sliding center console, power-release second-row bucket seats, and a 14-speaker Bose audio system.

The Denali Ultimate takes luxury to another level. It boasts a panoramic power sunroof, full-grain leather seat trim, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. You’ll also get massaging front seats and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch display screens.

Performance and Specifications of 2024 GMC Yukon Trims

GMC offers the Yukon with two powerful engines.

Engine Options and Performance Metrics

The standard engine for the Yukon is a 5.3-liter V-8 gas engine with 355 horsepower. The Denali comes with a 6.2-liter V-8 that generates 420 horsepower, and this engine is optional on some other trims. A turbo-diesel six-cylinder engine is also available. It generates 277 horsepower. All of these engines work with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel Efficiency Across Different Trims 

The turbo-diesel engine is the most efficient option. It earns ratings of up to 27 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. The two V-8 engines have similar efficiency ratings. You’ll get up to 15 mpg in the city with the 5.3-liter version and 14 mpg with the 6.2-liter model. Both return 20 mpg on the highway.

Towing Capacity Comparison

If you plan to use your Yukon to tow, the best configuration is a Yukon with rear-wheel drive and the 5.3-liter V-8. This can handle up to 8,400 pounds. The AT4 with four-wheel drive and the 5.3-liter can tow 8,200 pounds. If you have the 6.2-liter engine, it maxes out at 8,300 pounds.
