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.

The 2013 GMC Yukon is the middle child among GM's full-size SUVs. Based on price and equipment, the Yukon sits squarely between the Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade. Four-wheel drive is available on the Yukon, as are seating configurations for up to nine occupants. Competitors include the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia.
The Yukon XL is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. New for 2013 The Yukon now offers engine braking on grades without having to use the Tow/Haul mode. Exterior The Yukon has a one-piece grille and taller headlights than its sister Tahoe, with jewel-like bezels and a wider, lower air dam. The rest of the body features blocky fenders, long rear-quarter windows and a squared-off back end. The Yukon is also available in a higher-end Denali trim level. Denali models come with 20-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim and a power-operated liftgate. Exterior features include:
Integrated running boards
Standard 17-inch aluminum wheels
Standard heated power side mirrors
Optional 20-inch wheels
Chrome honeycomb grille (Denali)
Optional power-operated running boards
Interior The Yukon's dashboard has the same shape as its GM siblings. The domed instrument panel, carlike dashboard and flush-mounted buttons make for a handsome design.
This SUV can seat up to nine occupants when benches are placed in all three rows. Some models replace first- and second-row benches with captain's chairs, lowering total seating capacity to seven. The third row is removable, but it doesn't fold flat to the floor as some competitors' seats do. Third-row seating is standard on all models. Interior features include:
Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
Standard Bose stereo
Available cloth or leather-appointed seats
Available integrated backup camera in rearview mirror
Available heated/cooled front seats
Under the Hood The Yukon is available with either rear- or four-wheel drive. The Yukon Denali can have an all-wheel-drive system that's distinct from the available part-time four-wheel drive on the regular Yukon. When properly equipped, the Yukon can tow up to 8,500 pounds. Mechanical features include:
Flex-fuel 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 with 335 pounds-feet of torque
