On the outside, the Yukon boasts a distinctive grille with a chrome surround, along with the automaker’s signature C-shape lighting. But the Yukon’s design isn’t just stylish, it’s practical, too. Its standard Rainsense front wiper and hidden rear wiper maximize your visibility when the weather turns rough, while the available hands-free liftgate lets you easily access the cabin when your hands are full.
Inside the plush and spacious 2020 GMC Yukon, you can seat up to nine people. Keep you passengers comfortable with standard tri-zone automatic climate controls, an acoustic-laminated windshield, and triple-sealed doors. Plus, it comes with plenty of ways to keep your passenger’s devices charged, with seven USB charging ports, five 12-volt power outlets, and a 110-volt power outlet. If you need more cargo room than the 15.3 cubic feet you’ll find behind the third row, it’s easy to reconfigure the cabin thanks to its third-row fold-flat seats and second-row Fold-and-Tumble seats. Fold down the third row for 51.7 cubic feet of cargo space, or flatten the entire backseat for 94.7 cubic feet of room.
