GMC today introduced the 2018 Yukon Denali Ultimate Black Edition, which offers the vehicle’s traditional options in addition to black-painted 22-inch wheels with chrome inserts, chrome mirror caps, premium carpeted floor mats, a polished exhaust tip, and Onyx Black exterior paint.
The Denali is available in two or four-wheel drive models, and includes the Open Road Package which features a nine-month trial of Sirius XM and NavTraffic, a power sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, power-retractable assist steps, door and lift gate lock shields, glass breakage sensors, interior motion detectors, self-powered horn, vertical movement sensors, and adaptive cruise control with forward automatic braking.
“The Yukon Denali has always made a bold and powerful statement, and the Ultimate Black Edition takes that expression to a new level,” says Stu Pierce, senior marketing manager for GMC trucks and full-size SUVs. “The Ultimate Black Edition provides our customers seeking the ultimate in performance and refinement with an opportunity to express themselves with a new and unique style.”
GMC announced the standard 2018 Yukon Denali last May, including refreshed styling, signature sculpted grille, trim accents, and a new 10-speed automatic transmission with a 6.2 liter V-8 engine. The updates will carry over to the Ultimate Black Edition.
This year has been GMC’s strongest for Denali sales, with the Yukon and Yukon XL models —sales this year are up 50.7 percent and 61.2 percent, respectively.
