2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate Is A Full Package SUV.
2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate – Overview
Thanks to its dazzling chrome grille and well-appointed interior, the GMC Yukon Denali is already one of the flashy SUVs.
However, the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate, a new range-topper that adds slight external adjustments, richer inside materials, and even more technology to the already sumptuous Denali, takes the Yukon’s grandeur up a notch.
Here are the major highlights:
- The outside of the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate is dark chrome, while the interior has better leather.
- A rear-seat entertainment package and Super Cruise driver assistance systems are also available on the Denali Ultimate.
- The massaging function and speakers embedded into the headrests are included in the 16-way motorized front seats.
Exterior Design & Aesthetic
You’d think that an even swankier Denali would have every inch coated in chrome, but the Denali Ultimate has a more subtle design, with darkened “Vader” chrome on much of the trim.
The GMC logos have a deeper finish, but for contrast, GMC left some trim with a brighter coating, such as around the windows.
Unique 22-inch seven-spoke wheels are also available on the Denali Ultimate.
Interior Design & Cabin Layout
The interior has received the most attention. The front thrones are 16-way adjustable and have a massaging function, and all three rows of chairs are wrapped in more rich leather with plaited stitching.
The dashboard has Paldao wood trim with an etched topographical map of Mount Denali repeated on the seatbacks. The style is completed with aluminum trim.
The Denali Ultimate has a lot of features as well.
A new 18-speaker Bose sound system with speakers embedded into the headrests is available, and a rear-seat entertainment package with displays attached to the backs of the front seats.
The optional Super Cruise driving aid technology, including automatic lane shifting and a towing mode, is the true star.
The 6.2-liter V-8 and the optional Duramax 3.0-liter turbodiesel engines are linked to a 10-speed automatic transmission in the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate.
Standard features include magnetorheological dampers and air suspension.
Date of Launch & Expected Price
This fall, the Yukon Denali Ultimate will be available for purchase. However, GMC has yet to announce the price.
But knowing that the Sierra Denali Ultimate, its pickup-truck sibling, costs $20,000 more than the basic Sierra Denali, we predict the Yukon Denali Ultimate to cost around $92,000.
