2018 GMC Yukon Denali First Drive Review: Shifting Gears

The big SUV gets GM's new 10-speed transmission

GMC Yukon Full Overview

There is a certain expectation when you are rolling in an $80,000 SUV big enough to seat eight and tow a horse trailer. You want to be rolling in style. You want your seats to be comfortable and heated or cooled with the push of a button, your playlist pumping out of high-quality speakers. And the journey should be smooth and effortless.

Fitting the bill is the GMC Yukon Denali. For the 2018 model year there is a new grille, dropping the honeycomb to share the new GMC look already on the new Acadia and Terrain. The more jeweled look will eventually migrate across the portfolio. Denali also picks up new and unique 22-inch wheels and adds the Ultimate package with an assortment of creature comforts and safety features.

But the key upgrade is the 2018 Yukon Denali becomes one of the first SUVs in the GM stable to get the new 10-speed automatic transmission paired to its 6.2-liter V-8 engine that produces 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque to propel a vehicle weighing almost 6,000 pounds. Lower trim levels have the 5.3-liter V-8 with a six-speed transmission. The previous Yukon Denali with the 6.2-liter engine had an eight-speed.

This is the fourth GM application of the 10-speed that debuted in the 2017 Camaro ZL1 and is also in the 2018 Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Tahoe RST. GM will continue to expand its use in rear-drive vehicles.

Although the 10-speed was tuned for performance in the ZL1, it was engineered for smoothness, accuracy, and comfort in the big SUV. What it doesn't do is make the vehicle less thirsty. Fuel economy of the V-8, which can deactivate half the cylinders, did not always improve with the new transmission. The 2018 Yukon Denali with 4WD gets 14/22 mpg in city/highway driving (or 14/21 mpg in the longer XL form) and 14/23 mpg with rear-wheel drive, compared with the 2017 model's 14-15/20 mpg with four-wheel drive and 15/22 mpg with rear-wheel drive.

But Denali buyers are more about the experience than the pocketbook. After all, the Yukon Denali starts about $67,000 and the XL is closer to $72,000. Our XL tester stickered at $80,585 and has the $8,030 Denali Ultimate package that includes a personal favorite: power running boards.

GM developed the 10-speed for rear-drive vehicles in a partnership with Ford. The two rival automakers also developed a nine-speed for front-wheel-drive applications.

Ford first introduced its version of the 10-speed in its full-size pickup line, starting with the F-150 Raptor performance truck and then moving it down to the regular F-150 lineup mated to the 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6. Ford wants customers to know the gearbox is working hard to ensure it is always in the optimum gear for the task at hand. In some trim levels, there is a gauge in the driver's screen that shows which gear it is in at any given moment and you can watch it leap from fourth to eighth or back down to sixth.

GM chose a different path, calibrating the transmission's control, triple clutch packs, and algorithms for shift points and throttle response that are quick but seamless. If there is gear jumping going on, it is designed to be imperceptible.

The 10-speed has a wider 7.39 gear ratio spread than the eight-speed it replaces and is optimized to stay in the right torque curve and in the power band longer.

GM did its job well. We found the more efficient gearbox kept engine speeds lower at highway speeds, preventing it from revving even as it worked hard on a drive route from the Denver airport to the 11,158-foot elevation of the Eisenhower Tunnel and then back down thousands of feet into Beaver Creek. The Yukon never struggled, gasped, or lunged. The return 130-mile trip was even more challenging, with falling snow and slick roads where vehicles were spinning off I-70, and one SUV clipped the back of a transport truck in front of us. We safely pulled over to run back to the crushed vehicle to make sure the occupants were OK—they were—and we continued on with a welcome sense of safety in the Yukon.

The drive route also showcased the powertrain automatic grade braking on the long downhills. The algorithm senses how much you are on the brake and automatically downshifts to save brake life while maintaining speed without cruise control. It turns on automatically; a message appears in front of the driver and confirms it was activated.

We also did a quick towing loop with about 3,200 pounds worth of trailered ATVs, which did not cause the Yukon—or driver—to break a sweat, even in a roundabout in town. The Yukon Denali can tow 8,100-8,400 pounds.

GMC picked the drive location for a couple reasons. GMC and Vail/Beaver Creek have a multiyear partnership that allows GMC displays at 14 locations and provides Yukon courtesy vehicles at a number of resorts. GMC saw the area as the kind of place a typical Denali customer would go, says marketing director Stu Pierce.

Denali occupies a unique space that is luxury but still hardcore and mainstream. GMC introduced the high-end Denali trim in 1999 and has sold a million units netting some healthy profits. It achieves some of the highest average transaction prices for a nonluxury brand at more than $55,350. Denali accounts for 53 percent of Yukon sales and 63 percent of Yukon XL sales.

The current Yukon rides on the latest architecture introduced for the 2015 model year with important improvements such as third-row seats that fold down instead of being removed. Although they're an improvement, they are still tricky to get in and out of.

Some interior upgrades for 2018 include new ash trim as well as new brushed aluminum and some of the high-gloss finish has been replaced with a satin finish. There is a four-color head-up display, and the SUV retains its 8.0-inch infotainment screen, Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless phone charging, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Many drive features are carryovers. The 2018 Yukon Denali has Magnetic Ride Control adaptive damping suspension, tow/haul mode, hill start assist, locking rear differential, trailer brake controller, and low-speed auto braking up to 5 mph. There is adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and alerts for a bad lane change or impending forward collision. The seat will vibrate if you stray out of the lane and there is steering assist to pull the vehicle back in line. If you have put anything in the back seat, a chime reminds you to check the rear seats when you leave the vehicle.

GM sold about 49,000 Yukons, not including the XL, in 2017, which was down 8 percent from the previous year. The automaker is hoping the updated look and new transmission will keep it fresh and attractive as it competes with the new 2019 Ford Expedition and 2019 Lincoln Navigator.

What It Is: The GMC Yukon occupies the middle rung on General Motors’ ladder of mechanically similar—and massively profitable—full-size SUVs, being bracketed by the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban below and the Cadillac Escalade above. The GMC has three rows of seats as standard, is available in regular or XL body lengths, and caters to a clientele who find the Cadillac too flashy and the Chevy too, er, Chevy.

The model range ably spans that middle ground, with starting prices that reach from $50,395 for the entry-level SLE to $67,495 for the flashy Denali. (Add $3000 for four-wheel drive and roughly another $3K for the XL versions.) With up to 8500 pounds of towing ability, all are workhorses, equally as at home tugging a 22-foot boat to the shore for a weekend of fishing as they are toting a pile of friends or family to school, sporting events, or the home-improvement store.

All models get power from a small-block V-8, with a 355-hp, 383-lb-ft 5.3-liter serving in most Yukons. Denalis like our test subject get the Escalade’s 6.2-liter unit as standard, however, with a robust 420 horses and 460 lb-ft of torque. Our 2018 Yukon Denali was a black-over-beige/brown, four-wheel-drive example that came with a $2935 package that includes a sunroof and rear-seat entertainment, $2495 22-inch wheels, $1745 power-retractable running boards, $895 adaptive cruise control, and a $410 security bundle. All told, our truck clocked in with a sticker price of $78,475, a not inconsequential amount of money that can also get you an SUV from a more pedigreed luxury brand.

Why We Tested It and How It Performed: The last Yukon we tested was a 2015 Denali 4WD, so it has been a while (we more recently tested a 2017 Denali, but it was the long-wheelbase XL version). More important, though, is that the 2018 Denali added a 10-speed automatic transmission in place of the eight-speed that Denalis received midway through the 2015 model year. Lesser Yukons still use the six-speed unit that was in the aforementioned 2015-model test vehicle.

The transmission swap brought with it a bump in EPA-estimated highway fuel economy, from 20 mpg to 22 mpg. (The city rating dropped from 15 mpg to 14, though.) We observed 13 mpg during our time with the truck versus 14 with the six-speed 2015 Denali, but we’ll call that a wash due to the fact that the staffers who drove each Yukon, the trips they took, and the distances the SUVs traveled weren’t controlled variables. Driven in rear-wheel-drive mode on our 75-mph highway test, which we implemented in mid-2016, the 2018 version scored 20 mpg.

At the test track, the zero-to-60-mph figure took a 0.3-second hit versus the 2015 model, slowing to 5.8 seconds, but that’s still impressive for a 5815-pound behemoth. At higher velocities, the 2015 and 2018 models essentially tie, so the discrepancy to 60 mph likely is explained by the extra shifts the 10-speed makes on the way to that velocity.

What We Like: The new transmission is rarely caught searching among its plethora of ratios, and its smooth shifts bring to mind warm butter. Indeed, the Yukon as a whole is pretty buttery, with a soft, long-travel brake pedal and obedient and velvety steering. The Denali’s standard magnetorheological dampers do an admirable job of sanding off the edges from harsh impacts, but those seeking a plusher experience will want to avoid the 22-inch wheels and stick with the 20-inchers or perhaps even downgrade—gasp!—to the non-Denali and its stock 18-inch wheels and conventional dampers.

This mammoth hauler is actually a decent handler if you give it time to react to what you’re doing behind the wheel, responding faithfully to inputs from your feet and hands. Every Yukon is packed with connectivity tech, from standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality to onboard Wi-Fi and hotspot capability. We also like the new Denali-spec grille; it looks upscale and adds some visual depth to an imposing and otherwise bluff front end.

What We Don’t Like: This particular Yukon’s 70-mph-to-zero braking distance was a bit long; the 6054-pound Infiniti QX80, for example, came to a halt in 175 feet versus this Denali’s 192. (As it happens, that spread is almost exactly the same length as one GMC Yukon Denali.) It’s worth noting that we’ve seen the XL version stop some seven feet shorter.

The third row is pretty much for emergency use only; we’d stow those seats in the garage or basement until we really needed them, except you can’t remove them without breaking out tools. (They’re removable only in the sense that you’re de-installing them.) The high load floor means shorter folks might struggle to hoist heavier items into the back; the floor’s height is a result of the Yukon’s body-on-frame construction, which itself is a big reason the Yukon is such a capable hauler. You win some, you lose some.

Finally, even in this Denali spec, there are some cheap plastics dotted throughout the interior, and the new-for-2018 real wood inlays look, well, less than real. And the cabin design and graphics come across as mediocre and dowdy when compared to approaches being adopted by companies like Lincoln and Mercedes-Benz. Frankly, there are far more luxurious SUVs for the money, although incentives can tip the scales a bit if your heart is set on the GMC.

Verdict: Updated looks and a 10-speed automatic are nice marketing bullet points, but they don’t make for a meaningfully different Yukon Denali.

2018 saw a few changes including a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Yukon and Yukon XL also received minor exterior design changes for a fresh look. The cabin comfortably seats 8 people, rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available for those seeking a little more adventure in their drive. Though the purchase price for the 2018 Yukon Denali is on the expensive side, owners are sure to enjoy the redesign upgrades as well as a 10-speed transmission for a better driving experience.

 

2018 Yukon Denali Review

 There are two engine types that are available:  5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque in the SLE and SLT trims, and a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft in the Denali grade. The 5.3-liter is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and the 6.2-liter has a 10-speed automatic. If it’s towing capacity you seek, you’ll be satisfied with the 8,500 pounds for the standard Yukon with rear-drive while four-wheel-drive options can tow 8,200 pounds.

As expected, fuel economy isn’t the best. While the standard-wheelbase Yukon offers 16/23 mpg city/highway, the Denali is rated at 14/23 mpg city/highway. Just by looking at the vehicle, low gas mileage is to be expected. Cargo space ranges from 15.3 cubic feet behind the third row, to 51.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and 94.7 cubic feet behind the front seats. The longer wheelbase models offer even more cargo space with 39.3 cubic feet behind the third row, 76.7 cubic feet behind the second row, and 121.1 cubic feet behind the front seats. Customers with large families are encouraged to purchase the longer-wheelbase model. 

Standard features are ample. These include 18-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, Bose premium audio system, parking sensors, GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system with 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, tri-zone climate control, and rear-seat reminder system. If you’re wanting to upgrade to every option available, enjoy power-operated split-folding second- and third-row seats, leather interior, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, keyless entry/start, navigation, active noise cancellation, Magnetic Ride Control, 4G LTE connection services, and a programmable power liftgate.
