ENGINE

The standard engine on the 2020 GMC Yukon is a powerful 5.3-liter V-8 that produces up to 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, helped by a 6-speed automatic transmission. While this should be enough for most everyday drives, GMC also added a second engine option for those who feel they need a little more. The 6.2-liter V-8 is capable of producing up to 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, paired with a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is optional.


PERFORMANCE

When equipped with the 6.2-liter engine, the 2020 GMC Yukon is capable of impressive performance levels. It can reach a speed of 60 miles per hour from a complete standstill in only 6.2 seconds, a time that beats many much smaller and lighter cars on the road. Braking performance is also up to standard, with the Yukon only needing 141 feet to come to a complete halt from a speed of 60 miles per hour. Being a utility vehicle, other performance indicators are important as well. With the last two rows of seats, the Yukon offers an impressive 94.7 cubic feet of storage space, while its maximum towing capacity is a whopping 8,500 pounds.


The 2020 GMC Yukon's cabin is not only spacious and comfortable but also very well-insulated, managing to keep most wind, road, and engine noises out. Its tri-zone climate control is effective and easy to operate, while the large door openings make it easy to get in and out irrespective of your size. Most infotainment functions are controlled with the help of the 8-inch touch screen, while smartphone connectivity is easily achievable through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB ports, which all come standard.


SAFETY FEATURES

The 2020 GMC Yukon is equipped with modern active safety technology, meant to alert the driver whenever danger is imminent and help steer the vehicle out of harm's way. The most useful are the forward collision alert that alerts the driver whenever a vehicle or object is in front of the Yukon, the lane-keeping assist that sounds an alert when the vehicle drifts out of its lane, and the safety alert seat, which make the seat vibrate if any potential dangers appear on the left or right side of the vehicle.
