DUBAI – Introducing the new 2017 GMC Yukon – a forward thinking SUV designed to offer the driver and passengers a comprehensive suite of technologies, in safety as well as in driver and passenger connectivity. A vehicle made for even the most demanding of tech users.

With growing customer demands for advanced technology features, the 2017 GMC Yukon comes ready with technology that will satisfy both driver and passenger expectations. The GMC Intellilink infotainment system provides drivers with a comprehensive control center, and passengers will experience an enjoyable ride watching more content from more sources on the updated and optional rear seat entertainment system. Intellilink comes with standard Apple Car Play and is Android ready.

In addition, the new voiceover feature is there to help benefit the visually and hearing impaired, as well as a high capacity USB port in the rear for better support of tablet charging.

“Just like every GMC, the 2017 Yukon offers drivers the trusted, capable and aspiring package that GMC customers love. The new model has some particular customer focused updated technology features to go with the fast changing times,” said Mohsen Kassem, Regional Sales and Marketing Manager, GMC Middle East “At GMC, we value our customers’ preferences, and the Yukon is an example of this philosophy, with new connectivity and technology features that have evolved year on year for both the driver and the passenger. At GMC we make sure that every year the Yukon is ready to satisfy even the most technology savvy customers and their families.”

The 2017 Yukon models are equipped with a full suite of Driver Alert and active safety technologies that rely on a sophisticated network of cameras, radars and ultrasonic sensors adding layers of crash-avoidance protection, plus enhanced occupant protection in the event of a crash. The Yukon’s Enhanced Driver Alert Package boasts Lane Assist helping steer drivers back to their lane in the case of inadvertently leaving their lane.

Moreover, the package offers drivers with Intellibeam headlamp technology, which automatically turns the vehicle’s high beam on or off according to the surrounding traffic conditions. The GM-patented Safety Alert Seat vibrates if the system determines that a driver is at risk of colliding with another vehicle, and a standard rear vision camera shows the area immediately behind the vehicle, which is especially helpful when reversing in and out of tight spots.

Additional standard and available driver alert technologies include:

  • Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Automatic Braking

Furthermore, when it comes to design, the 2017 Yukon is available in a new exterior color, the Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic and the interior offers drivers and passenger heated and cooled front seats, which are now standard on the SLT.
