2023 GMC Yukon & Yukon XL in Airdrie, AB

GMC Yukon at Davis Chevrolet

There are very few models on the market today (outside the GM roster) that can match this kind of interior space. Online experts have lauded both 2023 Yukon iterations for their comfortable and quiet passenger cabin, cavernous cargo capacity and powerful available engines. Follow along with Davis Chevrolet while we take a closer look at the incredible 2023 Yukon family of SUVs.

Performance & Capability

Engine Menu

The 2023 Yukon and Yukon XL can do almost anything an owner asks of it, thanks to the powerful array of engines GMC has made available.
