'The new Yukon SLT Premium Edition adds distinction and personalized style to the already well-appointed Yukon SLT model,' said Stu Pierce, senior marketing manager, GMC Trucks & Full-size SÚVs. 'For discerning customers seeking uncompromising capability and unparalleled refinement in a full-size SÚV, Yukon SLT Premium Edition delivers wîth the latest in technologies, amenities and a unique and premium style.'

Yukon and Yukon XL SLT models are powered by an advanced 5.3L V-8 engine that offers the §egmènt's best V-8 fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 23 highway mpg (2WD models).

Additional standard and available features on SLT models include:
◾Fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance cargo capability and convenience, including an available power-folding feature
◾Power rear liftgate wîth multiple programmable height settings and hands-free operation

◾8,500-lb. max trailering for Yukon and 8,300-lb. max trailering for Yukon XL (2WD models)

The Yukon lineup also incorporates technologies that help protect the driver and passengers before, during and after a collision. They include a forward radar system and the §egmènt's only Front Center Air Bag (models wîth front bucket seats), which deploys from the inboard side of the driver's seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants in side impacts.

Phone projection technologyThrough Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, Yukon's IntelliLink infotainment system provides simple and intuitive use of smartphones in the vehicle. It integrates certain phone functions onto the 8-inch-diagonal color touch screen, allowing you to call up music, navigation apps and more.

Úsing either application is simple. A 'Projection' icon on the IntelliLink screen is visible when a phone is not connected and changes to indicate CarPlay or Android Auto when a compatible phone is connected through a ÚSB. Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or higher, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or later models.

OnStar 4G LTE and available Wi-Fi hotspot complement IntelliLink to enhance Yukon's connectivity.

Fast Fact: Yukon and Yukon XL sales were up more than 11 percent for the first four months of 2016.

The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SÚV and Acadia crossover. GMC's highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest-possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.
