Sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) have become a popular choice for many consumers in recent years because of their versatility to carry more cargo compared to cars and the high seating position when driving. They have higher ground clearance which allows them to drive over small objects on the road without damaging the vehicle. Many SUVs also have the option to tow any additional load as necessary and can seat up to eight people. But more than just getting you from point A to point B, the type of SUV you drive says a lot about you. It can influence how your employees or customers see you, especially when you are the head of your own company or in a leadership position. The Yukon Denali XL may be the perfect SUV for you.
The GMC Yukon Denali XL is a great SUV lease option for your company if you want to make a good impression or if you’re in the business of picking up and driving around VIPs. The sophisticated design sports a restyled grille flanked by high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights and LED signature lighting. The fresh design provides improved airflow to the radiator and features active aero shutters that can close to improve aerodynamics. Here are other reasons to consider the Yukon Denali XL for your business:
SUVs can come in small models which are not much bigger than subcompact cars to much larger models that are based on pickup trucks. There are also mid-sized options that are the best balance of passenger and cargo size with decent fuel economy. The Yukon Denali XL is considered one of the true big boys in General Motors’ SUV lineup. Design-wise, it is an extended-wheelbase SUV, meaning that the wheelbase is stretched to provide more interior space and cargo capacity. With an overall length of 5.69 metres, it is classified as a large SUV with a carrying capacity of 8 passengers.
There are two variants of SUVs: car-based and truck-based. Car-based SUVs are also called crossovers or CUVs and are built with a unibody construction, where the frame and the body are bonded into one piece. CUVs provide the ride characteristics of cars in that they provide better handling and comfort because of fully independent suspensions. They are usually less powerful than truck-based SUVs and as such can have less towing capability. Truck-based SUVs such as the Yukon Denali XL are built with a body-on-frame construction much like pick-ups and commercial trucks. These typically have much larger cargo spaces and their frames are designed to be more resistant to twisting forces when traversing off-road terrain.
Options for powertrains in SUVs may range from 4-cylinder engines to more powerful 8-cylinder variants. The more powerful engines are usually reserved for much larger SUVs because of the added weight. There are also diesel engine options available for some SUV models as well as hybrid engines for the fuel conscious customer. The Yukon Denali XL is a powerful set of wheels. It is propelled by an EcoTec3 V8 engine providing up to 420 hp and with a fuel economy of 14/23 mpg. This gives it enhanced performance on the road and the power to tow cargo effortlessly. It is capable of towing 8400 lbs. of cargo.
SUVs can come with all-wheel (AWD), 4-wheel drive (4WD) or 2-wheel drive (2WD) options. Some truck-based SUVs come with rear-wheel drive versions and crossovers tend to have front-wheel drive configurations. AWD and 4WD provide power to all the wheels but 4WD has low range gears specifically designed for handling difficult off-road terrain. 2WD is best for most urban situations which are mostly paved roads without snow or ice. The Yukon Denali XL can come in either 2WD or 4WD configurations.
The Yukon Denali XL boasts of an Enhanced Driver Alert package such as lane-departure warning and forward-collision alert, including an outstanding adaptive cruise control system. It also has automatic emergency braking and automatic high beams. Standard equipment comes with a reversing camera and parking assist.
