The GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate returns not as a package like before, but an entire trim level for the 2023 model year. Radiating in premium content inside and out, the Yukon Denali Ultimate is on the same level of luxury that we see in the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate. Here’s everything you need to know.
Like any flagship vehicle leaves days, you should expect to find a swath of Chrome adorning the exterior, and the Denali ultimate obliges, with dark Chrome accents on the fascia which contrast the bright comb Rome trim pieces around the windows and the lower door panels. A blend of both is featured on the 22-inch 7-spoke wheels.
As with any luxury vehicle, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and the Denali Ultimate counts for a lot. The seats are trimmed in full-grain leather for all three rows, well the first two rows feature 16-way power adjustment with massaging function. The entire interior is finished in an Alpine Umber color, with Denali Ultimate exclusive pleated contrast stitching, aluminum decor trim, and genuine open-pore powder wood.
There’s nothing more luxurious than being chauffeured around, and the Yukon Denali ultimate will be the first Yukon to get Super Cruise capability, which features automatically changing, as well as hands-free trailer towing on compatible roads. Separating the driver from the road is GM’s magnetic ride control and air ride adaptive suspension, while an 18-speaker Bose audio system helps shut out the rest of the world even more.

As for electronic toys, the Denali Ultimate comes with a 10.2-inch Diagonal premium infotainment system, complete with Android Auto and Apple Carplay capability, Amazon Alexa, and Wi-Fi hot spot.
2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate Price
Pricing for the Denali Ultimate will be made available closer to its on-sale date, but it’s likely this luxury SUV will push into the $90,000 range, as its cousin, the Cadillac Escalade, continues to creep higher and higher into the six-figure MSRP.
