Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Though gas mileage ratings for GM's full-size SUVs are impressive among their competitive set, they aren't likely to bring smiles to anyone at the pump; their combined ratings still linger in the teens. The Yukon Hybrid changes that, to a degree. Along with its twin, the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, the Yukon Hybrid promises an improvement in overall gas mileage. The Yukon Hybrid is only available with a short wheelbase, but it comes with either rear- or four-wheel drive. It seats eight. New for 2013 The Yukon Hybrid sees no significant changes for 2013. Exterior GM says the Yukon Hybrid's exterior changes are intended to make the SUV more aerodynamic compared with the gas-powered Yukon.
A modified bumper drops the regular Yukon's fog lights for some chunky bodywork and two small portals. There are horizontal grille slats and lower side cladding. Exterior features include:
Standard 18-inch wheels
Denali has 22-inch wheels
Heated power mirrors (auto-dimming on driver's side)
Interior The Yukon Hybrid has room for up to eight people in three rows of seats. Leather upholstery is standard, and the front seats are fitted with seat heaters. Optional items include a sunroof and a rear-seat entertainment system. All Yukon Hybrids include an efficiency gauge that gives feedback on your driving style. Standard interior features include:
Tri-zone automatic climate control
Leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
Under the Hood The Yukon Hybrid uses a two-mode hybrid system. The system augments the SUV's V-8 engine with two electric motors, both powered by a 300-volt battery pack. A cylinder-deactivation system cuts power to four of the eight cylinders during low-load situations, such as downhill coasting, and regenerative braking is used to recharge the battery. When properly equipped, the rear-wheel-drive Yukon Hybrid can tow 6,200 pounds, and the four-wheel-drive version can tow 5,900 pounds. Mechanical features include:
332-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8 with cylinder deactivation that generates 367 pounds-feet of torque
Two-mode continuous electric ratio hybrid transmission with four fixed gears
Rear- or four-wheel drive
Electrically driven power steering
Electrically driven air conditioning cools cabin even with the engine off
Safety Standard safety features include:
Side curtain airbags with rollover sensor
Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
Electronic stability system with roll-mitigation technology
Rear parking sensors
