Here’s info on the regular Yukon:
The Yukon full-size SUV was redesigned for 2015, when it received new exterior styling, an interior makeover and a new engine lineup. Among interior changes was the addition of a fold-flat rear seat that replaced a removable seat used on previous models. The Yukon is built from the same design as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and comes in two sizes: regular and XL. Both the Yukon and the Yukon XL are available with rear- or four-wheel drive. Competitors include the Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia.
The Enhanced Driver Alert Package adds lane-keeping assistance and automatic high-beam headlamps. A capless fuel filler is now standard.
