2023 GMC Yukon XL Trims & Specs

Following the introduction of the Denali Ultimate as an official model rather than as an optional package, there are five different trim levels: SLE, SLT, AT4, Denali, and Denali Ultimate. Engine options include a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft; the mainstay 5.3-liter gas V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft; specs for the GMC Yukon XL peak at 420 hp and 460 lb-ft from the 6.2-liter gas V8. A ten-speed automatic transmission is standard across the range, but 4WD is standard only on AT4 and Denali Ultimate trims - other trim levels are 2WD by default, offering 4WD as an option.

On the entry-level SLE, you get everything you need, and it can be ordered with either the standard 5.3-liter gas V8 or the 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-six engine. Standard features include a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, three-zone climate control, cruise control, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, front and rear park assist, and a 10.2-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The SLT trim has the same powertrain options but adds a number of comfort and convenience items to the list. It also gets 20-inch alloy wheels as standard.

The AT4 trim is more off-road focused and has a different front fascia to assist in this quest. The AT4 trim is only available with automatically-controlled 4WD. The Yukon XL Denali has standard Magnetic Ride Control and a plush interior with perforated leather and a head-up display. The 4WD-only Denali Ultimate has the same available engines as the Denali but gets everything the brand has to offer features-wise, including a rear-seat entertainment system and an 18-speaker Bose sound system.

🚘What's the Price of the 2023 GMC Yukon XL?

The 2023 GMC Yukon XL range opens with the SLE 2WD, which has a starting MSRP of $60,100, and upgrading to 4WD bumps the MSRP to $63,100 with the 5.3-liter gas engine. Selecting the 3.0-liter Duramax turbo diesel adds $995 to the base price on SLE and SLT derivatives. One step up in the range is the GMC Yukon XL SLT with a base price of $66,800 in 2WD form; for 4WD, add $3,000.

The AT4 is 4WD only and costs $73,405 with the 5.3-liter V8; $2,620 is needed to upgrade to the bigger eight-cylinder. 2WD Denali models with the Duramax diesel engine are priced at $78,505 and $77,005, with the 6.2-liter V8 - adding 4WD costs $3,000. At the top of the pile is the 4WD-only Denali Ultimate, with a sticker price of $97,255. Adding the diesel engine requires a further $1,550.

Destination charges for all 2023 GMC Yukon and XL models amount to $1,795, so remember to add that cost to the listed MSRP.

Additional Packages

Various option packages are available for the GMC Yukon XL, but not all of them can be had on all trim levels. Perhaps the most-significant package is the Max Trailering Package, which is available to all GMC Yukon XL trims except the Denali Ultimate. It ranges in price from $415 - $565 depending on trim and powertrain equipped; it comprises an integrated trailer brake controller, hitch guidance with hitch view, trailer side blind alert, an enhanced cooling system, and upgrades 4WD SLT and SLE models to include a two-speed transfer case.

SLT models can add the SLT Luxury Package for $2,530 to add memory setting to the front seats, a power 60/40-split-folding third-row bench with power release, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking, HD surround vision, and rear pedestrian alert. AT4 models have a host of optional extras, ranging in price from $1,150 for the rear pedestrian alert, HD surround vision, and a head-up display via the Technology Package, to $5,905 for the AT4 Premium Plus Package. The latter includes power-retractable side steps with LED perimeter lighting, a power sunroof, adaptive air suspension, an eLSD, hitch guidance with hitch view, an integrated trailer brake controller, a smart trailer integration indicator, and a bunch of advanced driver assists. A cheaper version of this package is also available for this trim.

Scheduled for late availability on the Denali is the Advanced Technology Package ($3,585), which includes a rear camera washer, an interior mirror with rear-camera integration, Super Cruise (for Denali trims), enhanced automatic parking assist which can perform parallel or perpendicular parking, and enhanced interior security features. At $10,325, the Denali Reserve Package is the most expensive, but adds 20 additional features, including adaptive air suspension, trailering tech, 22-inch wheels with premium paint and wheel locks, Super Cruise, and a host of security features.

🚗What 2023 GMC Yukon XL Model Should I Buy?

While the Denali trims offer some awesome features, most of them don't offer much practical value, and most of the features can be had as options on lower-trim Yukon XL models. With this in mind, value-conscious buyers will likely be very happy with the SLT trim with some added options like the power-folding second-row seats, the Max Trailering Package, adaptive cruise control, enhanced parking assist, and maybe the rear-seat entertainment system. This way, you can have most of the comfort features, driver assistance systems, and towing abilities of a Denali for a good $7,000 less. Otherwise, the AT4 will satisfy most of your cravings, look good while going off-road, and carry a reasonable price tag.
