GMC Announces the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate

Hitting dealers in the fall of 2022, the Yukon Denali Ultimate is the newest flagship of the Denali sub-brand. The 2023 model is available in two different powertrains, plus innovative technologies and high-end trim levels. The 6.2L V-8 and the Duramax 3.0L Turbodiesel promise a powerful ride and towing capacity. 

Denali Ultimate drivers will also appreciate driver-assist technologies like auto lane change and towing hands-free on compatible roads. For the RV enthusiast, these features are must-haves. The Yukon Denali Ultimate will not disappoint. 

Beyond these significant features, the interior is a haven of comfort for the road-weary. With full-grain leather seats and a powerful Bose surround sound, “are we there yet” is a thing of the past. You may have to pry your passengers out when you reach your destination. 

Numerous premium elements find their way to the Yukon Denali Ultimate, such as Vader chrome finish accents.

What’s So Great About the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate?

When you’re looking for the complete package, there are so many things to consider. What exactly will make the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate your next purchase? We think you need to consider these features. 


Designers spared no luxury in putting together the interior of the Denali Ultimate. Full-grain leather in the exclusive Alpine Umber colorway cradles riders in comfort. Driver and passenger will enjoy the 16-way seat adjustments and heated seats. 

Massaging seats are available for the longest days, and ventilation keeps you cool. These seats aren’t just functional. They also have topographic stitching and gorgeous aluminum and wood trim. The details keep coming with laser-etched topographic images on the wood trim. 

There’s plenty of room in the console too, with a 10” power opening for personal items. An 18-speaker Bose Centerpoint surround sound system will do the trick if you want to pump up the tunes. The speakers are also covered with brushed aluminum for that extra touch. 

And if the cord jungle drives you crazy, the Yukon Denali Ultimate will save you a headache. The vehicle comes with wireless charging for a cord-free ride. 

The attention to detail doesn’t end here, though. The exterior is just as much fun. 


You might expect this beast to come tricked out with chrome, and you’d be wrong. The Vader chrome finish glistens but doesn’t blind. The front grille features Galvano accents that reek of luxury. Door panels and windows feature traditional chrome for those wanting a touch of something familiar. 

From top to bottom, exterior features will get you noticed on the road. 22” machined wheels feature seven spokes and chrome set off with dark paint. You’ll certainly want to make those wheels shine when you go through the carwash. The ride can’t be beaten with standard AWD and innovative tech. 

What Will the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Have for Infotainment?

In our connected world, a vehicle of this stature must have peak infotainment. Large, driver-focused displays make getting the information you need even easier. With a 10.2” diagonal GMC Infotainment System, the Yukon Denali Ultimate is compatible with most Bluetooth devices. 

You can connect phones and cameras plus run Google Assistant and Google Maps while on the road. A 12” diagonal driver information center pairs with a 15” diagonal heads up display. You’ll also have compatibility with Apple devices, Android, and your Alexa will travel with you. 

If you need to work on the road, you can also have a WiFi hotspot added to your 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate. But the best feature is yet to come!

What Is Super Cruise?

Super Cruise is a technology released in 2022 that’s compatible with over 200,000 miles of roads. Super Cruise allows for some hands-free driving with an attentive driver and under the right conditions. With Adaptive Cruise enabled to control acceleration and braking, drivers can set a follow gap and relax. 

Using cameras, GPS sensors, and GMC Connected Services, Super Cruise will follow curves in the road like a champ. The Driver Attention camera will also ensure you don’t stray too long while checking out the Infotainment System. 

These features begin to introduce the idea of self-driving vehicles safely and responsibly. Especially on those long hauls out west, you’ll appreciate the care taken to provide safe and comfortable driving. 

The Yukon Denali Ultimate boasts 22-inch, seven-spoke Ultra-Bright machined wheels.

How Long Does a Yukon Denali Last?

If you take good care of your baby, you can expect it to last 250,000-300,000 miles of blissful driving. You can expect it to stay rust-free for 8-10 years, and rustproofing spray can extend that window. 

The Yukon Denali Ultimate outperforms every vehicle in its class for longevity. The better care you take of your vehicle, the longer you can expect it to last. Driving with care will also extend the lifespan of your road warrior. So, how long will it last? Best estimates say between 12-15 years. 

There’s a Lot to Like in the New 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate

If your life is on the road and you need the most luxurious ride around, the Yukon Denali Ultimate is for you. It’s gorgeous on the outside and the inside, plus where it counts, under the hood. 

You won’t feel a lack of power wherever you roam with the robust 6.2L gas or 3.0L diesel engine upfront. It’d be hard to go wrong with the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate for your next long-term RV tow vehicle.
