This full-size SUV is predicted to get some updates for the 2017 model year. The updates should make this car more refined and lovable. But until this post made, GMC has not gave us any clue regarding its 2017 Yukon. Once again you’ll find our review wrapped in prediction. Just enjoy!
2017 GMC Yukon Exterior Design
In 2015, the Yukon underwent a major update, so the new 2017 Yukon, will only come with slight changes. The changes we guess will be more aesthetic than functional. We’ll still have a big, boxy crossover that exhibits a masculine tone. In front we see a large chrome-trimmed grille flanked with semi trapezoid headlights.
The bulky fenders, alloy wheels and high squared windows indicate its strength as well as spaciousness inside. There’s a slot for roof rail on the top, ready to assist you carrying additional load. At the back we’ll see a squared bumper and a spoiler. The rear lift-gate has programmable hands-free for an easier access. Vertically squared taillights may remind us to the rear part of Jeep Patriot.
2017 GMC Yukon Interior Styling
The new Yukon GMC cabin will still be as roomy as before. The three-row seat will be able to carry up to 9 passengers. Convenience is what GMC emphasize once we step inside. Bucket seat is available for the first and the second row seating. While the front seat can be heated or cooled, the second can only be heated. There are beverage holders for all passengers. With valved exhaust system, the cabin feels quiet so you can concentrate on driving. This system will also reduce the vibration.
The interior will still offer more: a tri-zone automatic climate control, aluminum trimming, inlaid doors along with modified windows to minimize wind noise and enhance aerodynamics, triple-sealed doors, innovative storage like a center console which is able to store a laptop or hanging folders, etc. the third row seat comes with full folding option that enables a fold-flat bench.
2017 GMC Yukon Specs and Features
The 2017 Yukon comes with two powerful engine. You’ll have EcoTec V8 engine with 5.3 or 6.2 L displacement. The first engine puts out 335 hp, while the next gives 420 horsepower. These engines have an eight-speed automatic transmission. A 10-speed automatic is rumored to be featured in the next Yukon.
Safety is the thing that this crossover offers as this is a people mover vehicle. The features include StabiliTrak, Lane Keep Assist, forward collision warning, Intellibeam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and many more. We’ll also have glass-breakage sensor, ultrasonic motion detector, and lift-gate alarm to maximize security. To prevent the car from rolling, a hill start assist is featured inside.
