At the 1997 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, GMC showed off a concept vehicle that would capture the attention of everyone at the show. It was the first-ever Yukon Denali. This show vehicle came with unique exterior details and premium in-cabin features, including an early version of OnStar.
From there, the Denali line soon went into production and the first Yukon Denali models went on sale in late 1998. Now, nearly 20 years later, the one-millionth GMC Denali model has been sold.
Just like its namesake, the highest mountain in North America, the Denali lineup aims to stand above the rest of the SUV and truck lineup in America with premium amenities and fine craftsmanship.
“The advent of the Yukon Denali signaled a big shift, both in the industry and for GMC itself,” says Rich Latek, marketing director for GMC. “…We sensed an opportunity to create a premium-grade model that could resonate with customers on a whole new level.”
With the Yukon Denali, customers will find a premium SUV that can not only tackle tough jobs, but get you there in comfort and style. All three rows include premium, perforated leather-appointed seating. And, there are authentic aluminum and Java Burl wood inlays throughout the cabin.
