GMC will try to appeal to more US clients with the introduction of the new 2016 Yukon SLT Premium Edition, a complete new model with a premium look on SLT models.

Available starting this summer, this summer Yukon and Yukon XL models will include unique design 22-inch chrome-wheels, unique design chrome grille, bright chrome body-side moldings an polished exhaust tip.

Yukon and Yukon XL SLT models are powered by 5.3L V8 engine that offers the segment’s best V8 fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 23 highway mpg, but only for the 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 with multiple programmable height settings and hands-free operation, wireless phone charging, standard 8-inch-diagonal color touch-screen radio with enhanced IntelliLink and available navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection compatibility, keyless Open and Start.

On the safety list there is also a comprehensive number of systems: forward radar system and the segment’s only Front Center Air Bag (models with 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.
