The letter read: “Dear AutoGuide, can you accord me some admonition in attractive for a agent for my family. My wife and I accept two kids, ages 5 and 8, and a Golden Retriever. Twice a year or so, I charge to tow two motorcycles to Sturgis and Daytona for motorcycle rallies. Several times anniversary summer, I tow my jet skis to and from our summer cottage in Michigan. We additionally booty two ancestors camping trips anniversary summer, so we charge a abode for all our accessory and the dog. During the year, my wife has to car basin our kids and others to school, and handle the accepted chauffeuring to soccer, bathe meets, Little League, and gymnastics classes. We additionally advice out at abbey recycling programs, and lots of trips to the nursery for agriculture chores. So we charge a abounding agent that can finer bank 8, and accept a abounding burden area. We alive in the Snow Belt, so 4-wheel drive is important, and aback we absorb a lot of time in the vehicle, we’d like it to be adequate with some affluence amenities. But we additionally appetite it to be as blooming and economical as possible, as we are teaching our kids about attention and actuality amenable for the planet.

2. Fuel abridgement is rated at 20/20 mg (city/hwy) for 4WD models and 21/22 mpg for 2WD models, which is abundant bigger over the accepted Denali’s 12/19 mpg rating.
3. The Denali Amalgam starts at $58,235, about $8,000 added than the non-hybrid model, with the 4WD amalgam at $61,080. A less-luxurious Yukon Amalgam is priced from $50,920.
This letter describes and illustrates the assorted needs of abounding American families. Abounding charge to booty trailers, kids, and cargo, and appetite those capabilities in a affluence agent that can still be environmentally friendly. I afresh activated a agent that can fit the needs of this and abounding added families absolutely nicely… the GMC Yukon Denali Hybrid.
The Yukon is the crammer SUV in the GMC lineup, and in Denali trim, makes it a affluence SUV. It’s powered by GM’s Vortech 6.0-liter V8 with Alive Ammunition Management that seamlessly shuts bottomward from eight cylinders to four cylinders whenever beneath ability is needed. But it’s the two electric motors central the CVT two-mode manual that accomplish this Yukon a hybrid, by affective the agent with electric ability alone at apathetic speeds, or with a aggregate of electric and gas, and again on to abounding gas ability aback up to speed.
Despite the amalgam name, however, the motor is still acutely able and produces an absorbing 332 application and 337 ft-lbs of torque and can tow up to 6,000 pounds (6,200 lbs. for the 2-wheel drive version). Perhaps that won’t let you tow your 31-foot speedboat, or 4-horse trailer, but it’s affluence for towing motorcycles, ATVs or watercraft.
In accustomed driving, there is added than abundant ability to get you breadth you’re activity and the ability is so seamless you don’t apperceive if the electric motor is on or off, and wouldn’t be able to calculation the operating cylinders at any accustomed time. Best of all, the amalgam motor gives you 20 afar per gallon in the burghal and 20 on the highway, with an bigger 21/22 appraisement for 2WD models. That may not complete impressive, but the gas alone models are rated at 12 mpg burghal and 19 highway. And let’s not balloon that this is a agent that is 202-inches long, weighs aloof over 3 tons, and has abounding off-road capabilities. And on that note, compared to the Escalade Hybrid, this barter is one beat bigger in both the burghal and on the highway.
The Denali archetypal additionally comes with GM’s avant-garde MagnaRide suspension, accepted on the Cadillac Escalade. The shock absorbers use magnetorheological aqueous for about direct black adjustments, and advice to accommodate a added car-like ride than barter like handling. The Yukon appearance all the assurance electronics you’d expect, like ABS brakes, and Stabilitrak adherence ascendancy with absorption control. This is no sports car, and you’ll feel affluence of anatomy angular beneath adamantine cornering, but the 4-wheel drive and the electronics accommodate the assurance and aplomb that this Yukon is abiding beneath all on-pavement alive situations and best off-road ones as well.
On the outside, abreast from the Denali Amalgam badging, the chrome bore barbecue and handsome 8-spoke, 22-inch chrome auto are the above tip-offs that this is the up-model. But accelerate central the Yukon’s cabin, and the autogenous accessories will leave no agnosticism about the affluence aspect of the Denali version.
The covering akin berth appearance handsome copse trim on the dash, doors, animate and council wheel. The glove-soft covering seats, which are both acrimonious and cooled, are advanced and comfortable, yet not at all bulky, which advice to accommodate added leg allowance for additional row passengers. And there’s affluence of allowance for all eight passengers.
Second row cartage get their own altitude and audio controls as able-bodied as acrimonious seats. Cupholders are amid in the centermost armrest, and the analysis agent was able with the $1,295 rear ball system, which allows the kids to watch a DVD with wireless headphones, while Mom and Dad can accept to their music up advanced through the Bose 10-speaker audio arrangement with XM Satellite radio. And the additional row is advanced abundant for 3 adults to sit comfortably. The additional row seatbacks bend flat, and again the accomplished bank tilts advanced to acquiesce access into the 3-person third row bench, or to aloof access burden room.
Third row cartage don’t get abundant leg room, unfortunately. These seats should be anticipation of as kids-only, as it is still difficult for adults to clasp aback there, and there is alone allowance for abbreviate legs. And GM should accept placed abetment handles abreast the roofline for those times aback earlier association charge to block in and out of the rear area. And while the 60/40 third row breach bank seatbacks bend flat, they charge be removed to get a absolutely collapsed burden area. Bank abatement is easy, and the seats are adequately light, but it would accept been nice for the third row to bend alike into the floor, like the Ford Expedition. The liftgate is electric, a nice feature, and offers a low lift acme for burden accumulator and retrieval.
Cargo allowance is abounding with 16.9 cubic anxiety abaft the third row, 60.3 cu.-ft. with the third row removed, and 108.9 cu.-ft. with the additional row additionally bankrupt flat.
The Navigation Arrangement is accomplished and accessible to use. Programming addresses into the arrangement is simple, and you can alike articulation tag them through the Bluetooth arrangement to accept your destination. The Nav awning can additionally appearance you a clear breeze blueprint of breadth the amalgam agent ability is advancing from or abounding to. A back camera and Rear Parking Abetment admonishing is allotment of the package. There are bombastic controls on the council caster for the audio and buzz system, as able-bodied as the cruise controls. The centermost animate is huge, and includes three 12-volt abetting ability outlets for charging or operating cyberbanking devices, and there is abounding accumulator in the aperture pockets, which accept contoured baptize canteen holders molded into them.
One outstanding assurance feature, decidedly n a barter of this size, is the Side Dark Zone Alert, which flashes a admonishing ablaze on anniversary alfresco mirror to let you apperceive aback a agent in the adjoining lane is in your dark spot. And aback you accomplish either about-face signal, the mirrors additionally beam a admonishing arrow authoritative it easier for added drivers about you to apprehension your intentions.
Another accomplished affection is the ability adjustable anchor and accelerator pedals. Shorter legged drivers can move the pedals closer, yet not accept to move the bank too abutting to the council wheel. The keyless access arrangement appearance alien start, and has a congenital in anti annexation system.
The Denali archetypal I activated started at $61,080, which is about $3,000 added than a 2-wheel drive amalgam model. The 4-wheel drive Denali with the accepted gas agent begins at $53,700. My analysis car added the $1,295 Rear bank Ball System, a $995 ability moonroof, the Side Dark Zone Alert for alone $500, and $395 for the red Jewel Tintcoat paint. The aftermost band on the sticker apprehend a advantageous $65,215. That’s not cheap, but still about $10,000 beneath than the Escalade Hybrid.
This is an accomplished best for those who accept a charge for such a able vehicle. You get the ammunition abridgement of a auto in burghal driving, and can ample up the seats with eight folks, (if three are kids), you can booty camping gear, a trailer, the dog, and whatever you charge for an alive lifestyle. And you can do all that in a solid, able-bodied congenital agent that performs like a barter but with a car-like ride quality. You can additionally accept all the affluence amenities you’d appetite in a vehicle, and still be able to bang a Blooming Peace sticker on the window. For barter owners, this is your future.
