The 2020 GMC Yukon is one of the SUV crossover models that comes with a truck-like capability, as the manufacturer has entrusted in it as much power and utility that a truck could have offered, while its level of comfort can leave many of the compact cars behind.

As mentioned earlier, GMC as a heavy vehicle manufacturing brand prepares the 2020 Yukon models with the power of a truck and then adds the most advanced driving dynamics to be found in other models you can see in this segment.

Coming to the transmissions, while the former engine powered models get to pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission, the more powerful ones are engaged to a 10-speed automatic gearbox to transfer the power to the respective wheels you configure your 2020 GMC Yukon model with.
