- 2018 GMC Yukon For Sale In San Diego
The 2018 GMC Yukon is an attractively designed full-size SUV that’s powerful enough to tow serious loads. The Yukon is ideal for towing a trailer or a boat on a weekend excursion. But the Yukon isn’t all about power; it’s comfortable and stylish, too. While customers at the San Diego GMC dealer love the GMC Yukon for all these reasons, many buyers are thrilled with the Yukon’s incredible capability as an off-roader.
If you’ve been asking yourself if you can find the 2018 GMC Yukon at an SUV dealer near me, you’ll be glad to know it’s available at the GMC dealer in San Diego in three different models, listed as SLE, SLT and Denali. There’s also a longer version of the standard Yukon, called the Yukon XL. Since the Yukon XL is a separate vehicle, we’re not covering it here. Most Yukon trim levels have seating for eight occupants, but the SLE has an available front bench seat that allows nine passengers to be seated comfortably. The Denali trim has standard bucket seats in the second row that are optional on the SLT. Equipped with the bucket seats, the Yukon seats seven.

The Car Connection lauded the 2018 GMC Yukon, writing: “The 2018 GMC Yukon is a full-size SUV that uses traditional body-on-frame construction, but it hardly feels dated. ... Clean, conservative lines characterize the 2018 GMC Yukon outside, while the dashboard could have been plucked from a higher-end luxury sedan.”
Buyers can choose from one of two powerful V8 engines. The SLE and SLT get a 5.3-liter V8 that’s good for 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. This block gets standard rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive with a single-speed transfer case. Off-roaders will want to choose the Yukon’s available Autotrac two-speed active transfer case with low-range gearing. This system stays in two-wheel drive until it senses the wheels are slipping, then it deploys four-wheel drive until traction is recovered. You can also manually switch to four-wheel drive, no matter what the vehicle’s speed. Properly equipped, this engine can tow up to 8,500 pounds. Rear-wheel-drive models get EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.* With four-wheel drive, fuel economy is rated at 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
