The 2020 GMC Yukon is proof that when it comes to hauling, hardly anything beats a V-8. Sometimes, there’s no school like the old-school, and while the 2020 GMC Yukon makes use of technologically well-engineered engines. In 2020 we add some new-age technology and this makes for a potent powertrain. Due to this, I think you should try a GMC Yukon lease deal.
Engines For All
All Yukons come standard with a 5.3-liter V-8 making 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard as is a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a four-wheel drive is an option across the range. While this engine is plenty powerful, those looking for even more zip can try the 6.2-liter V-8, which pushes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft through a 10-speed automatic transmission.
It accelerates smoothly without any hurry. Either V-8 is relaxed and quiet on the highway, and both can be ordered with a selectable all-wheel-drive system. Rear-drive models can tow up to 8500 pounds, and all-wheel-drive versions are rated up to 8200 pounds. Thanks to the big V-8s and a body-on-frame construction with a solid rear axle, the Yukon can tow 8,500 pounds maximum with the larger engine and rear-wheel-drive equipped.
While ride quality is good for a truck-based SUV, steering is light and quick, and though magnetic suspension helps the ride quality, 22-inch wheels make light of the bumps in the road. The Yukon also manages just fine off-road. When on loose gravel or slippery surfaces, power goes to the rear wheel with the most traction to help keep Yukon full-size SUV moving seamlessly.
Comfort All The Way
Adults will be comfortable enough in the second row, either on a flat bench seat or dual captain’s chairs. What’s more, cargo space nearly disappears behind the third row, but the Yukon XL does offer much more in the way of capacity thanks to a much, much longer footprint.
Wow To The World
GMC’s infotainment system has practically every feature available on the market and an easy-to-use interface. The navigation-equipped 8.0-inch touchscreen has large, easy-to-read graphics and generous touch zones, so users won’t be required to pinpoint a tiny icon while the vehicle is moving. It’s as intuitive as most smartphones, and it responded quickly to inputs. The interior has enough USB ports and other outlets to charge an army of smartphones
Amazing Features Inside
Your drive is made all the better because of the quiet comfort Tri-zone automatic climate controls, heated and ventilated front seats. heated steering wheel is great for the morning chill. The inlaid triple door and acoustic-laminated windshield keep the ride quiet as does the Bose® Active Noise Cancellation.
A keyless fob gives you easy access, even with the fob kept in your pocket or bag. With your hands full, the height-adjustable liftgate can be opened with the kick of your foot. These features make the Yukon among the best GMC leasing deals. What can go wrong with wipers that respond to different amounts of rain your windshield and if you check under the spoiler it houses a window wiper hidden when not in use for an uncluttered appearance.
