Pricing for the Yukon will begin at $51,995, with the longer Yukon XL starting at $54,695. Both of these figures include a $1,295 destination charge, and that will get you a base model SLE turning just the rear wheels. Stepping up to four-wheel drive sees the Yukon jump to $54,995. The XL will start at $57,695 in SLE trim.
The standard Yukon is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 with 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the same specs as found in both the Tahoe and Suburban. The Yukon Denali trims, as with the High Country trims on the Chevy twins, outdo the 5.3-liter with a 6.2-liter V8 making 420 hp and 460 lb-ft. Both engines shift through a 10-speed automatic. Stuffing a Yukon XL Denali with options can take the MSRP beyond $80,000, thanks to available features like the panoramic sunroof, rear seat entertainment, air suspension, and Magnetic Ride Control Suspension.
