ECOTEC3 ENGINE PERFORMANCE

Yukon XL delivers improved horsepower, torque, and fuel economy2 thanks to its all-new EcoTec3 V-8 engine, with features that include:

This feature is particularly effective when towing, giving the driver time to switch from the brake pedal to the gas pedal without rolling.
