Introducing the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Trim | Hiley Buick GMC

November 17th, 2022 by

 

Denali models are seen as the highest level of GMC vehicles. Coming from the word for “great one” in the Native Alaskan language of Koyukon, a Denali has always been the fanciest version of a GMC car, truck, or SUV. Whether the best in comfort, safety, style, and more, the Denali offers you the best of everything. Coming up in 2023, Yukon introduces the Denali Ultimate as a new, higher trim level with even fancier equipment.

We may see more vehicles that adopt this new standard in the coming years. For now, let’s take a look at the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate and how it differs from the Denali.

Why Is the 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate a Big Deal?

The GMC Denali nameplate first appeared in 1999, so the introduction of a higher model has made quite the splash. As expected of a history-making reveal, the Denali Ultimate elevates the Yukon’s maximum potential luxury and value even beyond the Denali. This 2023 Yukon model adds further exterior and interior enhancements to the regular Denali build, as well as the optional GMC Super Cruise feature.

The Denali Ultimate naturally looks similar to its preceding trim. The grille, fenders, and other body parts of this high-end Yukon have dark chrome accents. Although the bright red GMC badge is present on all other 2023 GMC Yukon models, the Denali Ultimate keeps a monochromatic appearance, putting the spotlight on the chrome.

The Denali Ultimate adds several appealing exterior accents with an exclusive Vader Chrome finish, and the front fascia has been thoroughly decorated with matching pieces. These additions all brilliantly enhance the classic Denali black color scheme. Finally, the Yukon Denali Ultimate rides on 22-inch seven-spoke ultra-bright machined wheels with both polished bright chrome and dark painted accents.

2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Interior

The 2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate trim comes standard with 16-way power front seats with massage features, an exclusive Alpine Umber interior, full-grain leather seats, and exclusive Denali Ultimate front seat metal badging. There’s even laser-etched topographical map patterns on the wood trim pieces, showing that GMC considers every possible way to add more style. The Denali Ultimate also adds polished bright Vader Chrome elements to the window and door panels, matching the exterior improvements.

As with the Denali trim level, you and your passengers can enjoy expansive views from the panoramic dual-paned, tilting and sliding, and power-shade-equipped sunroof. The power-sliding center console conveniently opens up at the press of a button to reveal a handy storage space, and the rear offers 25.5 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Like the standard Denali, you’ll have your pick of three interior colors for the perforated leather seats. Combined with fractal stitching and real wood accents, these top-level GMC cabins are a joy to behold. The dual rear-seat media system has a 12.6-inch screen that can tilt for optimal access. Front and center is a 10.2-inch diagonal premium GMC infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and phone charging capabilities, as well as built-in Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Technology

As expected, the GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate trim level has the best technological features the brand has to offer. Specifically, the Ultimate adds an 18-speaker Bose Performance Series audio system that has speaker grilles for the doors and headrests made of stainless steel. The rear-seat media system, also on the standard Yukon Denali, provides access to streaming favorites, such as Hulu and YouTube. It also has two 110-volt power outlets, up to six USB ports, and wireless charging capability.

2023 Yukon Denali Ultimate Safety

With its excellent technology and safety features, the GMC Yukon enables you to confidently navigate open roads while staying connected, informed, and aware of nearby vehicles. The GMC Pro Safety Plus contains a variety of driver-alert and active safety technologies that are intended to boost confidence and help avoid potential threats.

By far, the most exciting benefit of the Yukon Denali Ultimate may be the available class-leading GMC Super Cruise, a hands-free, automatic driver assistance mode. Super Cruise allows you to rest your arms and enjoy automatic steering, braking, acceleration, and even lane changing. It can even perform all of its functions while pulling a trailer. Other notable safety features carried over from the Yukon Denali include the adaptive cruise control system and adaptive air suspension, providing comfort and guidance even to those who skip adding Super Cruise.

The Super Cruise feature can be easily activated across a huge network of roads around North America. While nothing else is added on the Denali Ultimate as far as safety equipment, you get the already-completed safety suite of the Denali, which specifically adds a 360-degree camera, rear pedestrian detection, and a driver head-up display to the Yukon’s other features.
